Settle in for the adventure of a lifetime in one of Australia’s most remote and untamed regions as you embark on a fully escorted tour through the country’s Western Wilderness. Flying to Broome on the northwest coast you’ll stay at the Cable Beach Resort, from where you can explore the attractions of this town, once known for its pearling industry. See a procession of camels stride along the beach at sunset and check out the dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point. Leaving Broome, make your way to rugged Geikie Gorge and take a river cruise before settling into your lodge for the night at the tiny town of Fitzroy Crossing.

Moving on to Hall’s Creek, discover a fascinating hotbed of indigenous art and learn about it from the artists themselves. At Emma Gorge you’ll get to visit one of the world’s biggest diamond mines before spending two nights at the Emma Gorge Resort where you’ll be able to delve into the natural attractions of the El Questro Wilderness Park. Here you’ll find everything from cascading waterfalls to thermal springs.

Reaching Kununurra, you’ll learn about the pioneering Durack family and their charming homestead that was dismantled, relocated and rebuilt to avoid being submerged by Lake Argyle. After sampling rum and rum-laced cake at a local distillery on the Ord River, take a cruise on this tranquil waterway and keep your eyes peeled for freshwater crocodiles. You’ll then have two nights to discover Kununurra, gateway to the Bungle Bungles, and enjoy the convivial company of Tom Curtain with his Katherine Outback Experience.

After learning about the traditions of the Jawoyn people at the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre in Katherine, you’ll reach the north coast city of Darwin where you’ll visit the Adelaide River War Cemetery and enjoy a farewell waterfront dinner beside the Indian Ocean with your fellow travellers.
