Broome - Derby (L)
Day 1
Broome - Derby (L)
In the pristine and warm water of the Indian Ocean around Broome you’ll find pearls which are among the most sought worldwide. Up until 1930 this small fishing town has met three quarters of the world’s pearling supplies and has become Australia’s pearling metropolis. By visiting the only pearl farm open to tourists in the Kimberley, you are given an insight into the pearling industry and its history. We then leave Broome heading north. At Derby we visit its main attraction with a dark past, the Prison Tree. Aboriginal convicts used to be locked up the hollow trunk of the old Boab Tree. Nowadyas, the bulbous giant is protected and should no longer be entered out of respect for this place and history.

Derby - Halls Creek(B)
Day 2
Derby - Halls Creek(B)
The journey is the reward and as reward along the way there is the breathtaking beauty of the Kimberley region. We drive a section of the legendary Gibb River Road. It is one of the most famous roads in the north-west Australia. This legendary cattle track, the so-called “Beef Road”, was originally constructed to enable the farmers of the isolated north-western part of Western Australia to drive their cattle to the ports of Derby and Wyndham. The approach to Windjana Gorge National Park is very impressive. The vertical rock faces of the Napier Range look like an insuperable wall. Dating back approximately 350 million years ago a shallow tropical sea covered a large proportion of this area and formed a coral reef over 1,000 km in length. Fossils can still be found embedded in the walls of Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek. We have a very special surprise for you waiting in Tunnel Creek National Park: We will not walk across the creek but we will wade through it. The track follows the streambed of Tunnel Creek along a 750 m long cave system - the oldest in Western Australia - below Napier Range. In Halls Creek we take a short detour to the so-called China Wall. The vertical, up to 5 m high wall of bright quartz is the result of erosion and looks like being built by humans.
Kimberley Hotel, Halls Creek

Day 3
Halls Creek - Wyndham - Kununurra (B)
Along the Great Northern Highway, between the Durack Range and the Carr Boyd Range, we continue to Wyndham. The Grotto is the name of an idyllic swimming pool located at the beginning of a short but pitoresque gorge. The pool, enclosed by steep rock walls, is fed by a 15-meter waterfall during the rainy season. Telegraph Hill is located in the Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve. Here we enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the dramatic and rugged landscape of Wyndham and the surrounding area, as well as Marglu Billabong, which is a bird sanctuary for over 20,000 birds. Five Rivers Lookout in Wyndham, the northernmost town in Western Australia, offers spectacular views of the Ord, Forrest, King, Durack and Pentecost Rivers, the Gulf of Cambridge, and surrounding mangrove swamps and tidal flats. Molly Springs is a beautiful small spring fed pool with a waterfall. It is a great and shady place to sit in the water and watch the fish, goannas and birds. Short drive to Kununurra.
