ITINERARY
Kimberley Off-Road Adventure Tours 9 Day Darwin to Broome - Day 1

Your Kimberley Off-Road Adventure Tour begins as you are picked up from your Darwin accommodation at 06:00 and make your first stop at the remarkable magnetic termite mounds. You will then continue on to Edith Falls for a refreshing swim beneath the waterfall. Afterwards, move on to the Victoria River region for the first night’s camp.

Your accommodation: Remote Wilderness Camping

Bush camping is all part of the adventure and the experience of the outback. For many centuries Australia’s ancestors survived in the bush living off nature. Gaze up at the stars from your swag and embrace the wonders of Mother Nature as you breathe in the open air. Some nights you will bush camp with no facilities, however there are alternatives to get around this - such as swimming in the crystal clear springs along the way!

Enjoy the welcomed solitude and sunset with a campfire meal, before resting for the night ready to be woken by the sound of water, wildlife, and an unmissable sunrise. When we are ready, we'll pack up and head back to the mainland for breakfast.
