A journey along the Gibb River Road is one of the last
Aussie outback adventures. It was originally constructed
in the 1960s to transport cattle from outlying stations to
the ports of Derby and Wyndham.

3 Day guided 4WD
June - Aug every Tuesday & Friday
This tour is perfect for travellers who wish to visit the Bungle Bungles from Kununurra but do not wish to take a scenic flight.
Day 1. Kununurra, Purnululu National Park
Be met in Kununurra by your APT Driver-Guide and depart for the Bungle Bungle Range. After boarding a purpose-built 20 seat 4WD vehicle, head south on the Great Northern Highway stopping along the way for lunch. Visit a local Indigenous community (when available) then continue to Purnululu National Park, getting your first glimpse of the impressive Bungle Bungle Range, arriving at the exclusive Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge. This evening a delicious three course open-air dinner awaits.
Day 2. Purnululu National Park, Cathedral Gorge, Piccaninny Creek
After breakfast head to the southern end of Purnululu National Park. Walk along the dry riverbed of Piccaninny Creek for a closer inspection of the striped beehive domes arriving at The Window, a natural hole in the ancient rock formation. Marvel at the majesty of Cathedral Gorge and test out the acoustics of this natural amphitheatre. Perhaps take a helicopter sightseeing flight over the Bungle Bungle Range (own expense). Enjoy an impressive Kimberley sunset with drinks in hand, overlooking the Bungle Bungle escarpment as the colours of sandstone deepen to red.
Day 3. Purnululu National Park, Osmand Lookout, Echidna Chasm
Today, embark on an in-depth exploration of the northern section of the Bungle Bungle Range. Begin with a short walk to Osmand Lookout for spectacular views over the Osmand Range and surrounding landscape. Next, follow a dry creek bed to reveal the unique Echidna Chasm. Venture deep into this natural cleft in the rock, which in places is over 200 metres deep yet barely wide enough to pass through. Join a hike along a Livistona palm-fringed trail to see the spectacular natural wonder of Mini Palms. Walk along the dry creek bed for an unforgettable view into a subterranean oasis where hundreds of ancient palm species are surrounded by towering cliffs. Travel back to Kununurra, where your unforgettable Kimberley adventure concludes today.
