Overview

The Kimberley is one of Australia’s lesser explored regions, and with it spanning an area three times the size of England it can seem quite overwhelming trying to plan a trip here. However this is one part of Western Australia not to be missed; The Kimberley is a place where fiery red landscapes and emerald flora are set off against cobalt skies. There are secluded gorges hiding ancient rock art and welcoming waterholes to be discovered not to mention a plethora of indigenous flora and fauna to uncover.

The Essence of the Kimberley is a small group 4WD adventure tour that departs from Broome and takes clients on a journey through spectacular national parks and stays at some exclusive wilderness lodges. Spend time exploring the Bungle Bungle Range and see the iconic domes that formed from natural erosion over millions of years. Relax in the thermal pools at Zebedee Springs and head out on a wildlife cruise. With a variety of activities this immersive tour will give you a real insight into the regions rich aboriginal history and culture as well as showcasing the spectacular scenery which is unlike anywhere else in Australia. 

Travel with like-minded companions and rest safe in the knowledge that all your transport and accommodation is looked after.
