APR - OCT
A Coastal and in-land Kimberley adventure, this tour showcases the majestic islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago, the Horizontal Falls and Cape Leveque. Also the in-land beauty of the Fitzroy river and Geikie Gorge with a stop over at Mt Hart station.
We created the Kimberley Explorer Tour to coincide with the opening of the Cable Beach Club and we acknowledge the good grace of the Murray Family who were the then owners of Mt Hart Station.
The tour gives a good overview of the highlights of the West Kimberley.
Whilst enjoying your freshly cooked breakfast your pilot will guide you through a comprehensive safety video and give you a short briefing on your flight before you board the aircraft for your full day of exploring the Kimberley.
Departing Broome across the Roebuck Plains the historic cattle country of the Kimberley will unfold before you as will the Fitzroy River flood plain before we land at the town of Fitzroy Crossing which was a cattle staging town in the late 1800’s and sits on the banks of the Fitzroy River .
You will be transported by bus to Geikie Gorge which was formed as an ancient reef system in the Devonian Period. Parks and Wildlife provide a boat cruise where commentary by the rangers will give valuable knowledge of the great cultural significance of the area and also highlighting the diverse wildlife that may be found here, be it freshwater crocodiles, bird species and even freshwater swordfish.
Once airborne we virtually follow the remnants of the Devonian Reef passing overhead Windjana Gorge prior to landing at Mt Hart Station now part of a West Kimberley National Park for a delicious lunch.
The afternoon takes us over, the tidal Horizontal Waterfalls, the mining islands of Koolan and Cockatoo in the Yampi Sound before taking in some 900 uninhabited islands in the Buccaneer Archipelago. A stopover at Cape Leveque allows you to stretch your legs, have afternoon tea and see pindan red cliffs contrasting with the crystal blue waters at the beginning of an extensive offshore trench that continues down the coast of Western Australia.
Homeward bound as we track down the Dampier Peninsula you can see the communities of Lombadina, in the distance Beagle Bay, Carnot Bay, Willie Creek and of course Cable Beach prior to sunset.
