Depart Broome after breakfast, heading east towards the Kimberley gorges. Travel through the remote and beautiful landscape, your personal guide will share stories of local history, people and the environment.
Enjoy a break at Willare Roadhouse on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River and visit the notorious Derby 'Boab Prison Tree', a significant historical site of the West Kimberley. This tree, believed to be over 1500 years old and measuring almost 15 metres in girth, is a relic of some cultural sensitivity due to its use as a prison for local Aboriginals during the era of Kimberley pioneers. Make a short detour into the remote outback town of Derby and visit the wharf precinct - known for some of the highest tidal movements in the world.

Travel the Gibb River Road and enjoy a short visit to Mowanjum Aboriginal Community Art Centre and  learn about the important Wandjina spirit prior to traveling towards the picturesque Napier Range. Once a Devonian reef, these mountains are over 350 million years old and home to a diverse array of animals and plants. The perfect place to experience stunning natural beauty of an outback oasis is the 3.5km geological wonder of Windjana Gorge. Beneath gorge walls rising 90m, search for freshwater crocodiles, local birdlife and bush tucker.

After a picnic lunch inside the gorge,explore Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre cave system carved through the Napier Range and discover secret caves and subterranean wildlife. It is here you will hear the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hideout in the late 1800's.

As dusk approaches, it’s time to depart this fascinating and spectacular area of the west Kimberley.  Sit back, relax and enjoy the sunset that silhouettes the majestic boab trees on your journey back to Broome.
