View ancient Aboriginal rock art, swim in pristine waterholes and enjoy an unforgettable sunset Yellow Waters wetlands cruise to see the famous saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitat. 

In the Katherine region, we take in the grandeur of rugged sandstone cliffs, dramatic waterfalls and lush rainforest at the spectacular Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park. We cruise the gorges carved over millions of years and learn its secrets through the eyes of the traditional Aboriginal owners, the Jawoyn people. 

Then on to the vast, remote Kimberley region in Western Australia, where we cruise huge Lake Argyle, walk through the towering orange and black domes of the Bungle Bungle Range in World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park, marvel at the fiery red Cockburn Ranges at El Questro Wilderness Park and take easy walks and swim in the turquoise waterhole at Emma Gorge. 

In the west Kimberley, at Geikie Gorge National Park, we cruise the Fitzroy River. We walk through Western Australia’s oldest cave system at Tunnel Creek and visit Windjana Gorge National Park with waterstreaked walls that rise to heights of 100 metres.

To be advised

To be advised

Moderate

This program includes places which can only be explored on foot and where walking tours may be a little longer and not always on the flat. Accommodation may have some stairs and or have some rooms which may involve some walking to access.
All our programs naturally involve some walking in order to discover bet­ter the places visited and, although we arrange porterage where this is available, participants are expected to be able to handle their own bags. Our program leaders will always try to make as much of the program as possible available for those who find walking longer distances, uphill or down steps difficult but, in same places, this cannot always be avoided.
If you have any concerns at all about your level of fitness, please do not hesitate to talk to us and discuss further with the experts who know the particular demands of each program.
