ABOUT THIS TOUR
This tour covers some of the the most scenic and rugged country that Western Australia and the Northern Territory have to offer. From the lush tropical jungles of the Northern Territory, through remote cattle grazing country to the rugged Kimberleys and Broome, we have it all covered. If you are shy of water crossings stay at home, but if you like incredible scenery, amazing fishing and a joke in one of the many Outback pubs, this tour has your name on it.

Day 3. Grove Hill to Victoria River (Campground)
Day 4. Victoria River to Fig Tree Yard (Bush Camp)
Day 5. Fig Tree Yard to Kalkarinji (Campground)
Todays drive is something else. The whole day is spent on tight 4wd tracks. It’s rocky, sandy and muddy with heaps of river crossings. Today’s travel is first class. We usually catch a Barra or 2 at our lunch spot so more than likely it will be fresh Barra on the BBQ tonight. As we continue south after lunch we are still driving some of the best tracks the NT has to offer before we get to our overnight camp at Kalkarinji and Barra for dinner.
Day 6. Kalkarinji to Nicholson River (Bush Camp)
After a morning stop for fuel and supplies at the Kalkarindji Community store we turn west on the Buntine Highway. The Buntine is one of the North’s great ‘Cattle Roads’. The driving today is very similar to day 3. We travel through vast tracts of grasslands. We are deep into the NT’s best Cattle Country. The driving today is a big change from yesterday. We get a chance to relax as we head into the afternoon sun, cross into Western Australia and our camp on the Nicholson River.
Day 7. Nicholson River to Lake Argyle Village (Campground)
Day 8. Lake Argyle Village to El Questro (Campground)
The destination today is the famous El Questro Station. We leave Lake Argyle and into Kununurra where you have some time to look around and provision with fresh produce and restock the beer. After a refuel we cross the massive Ord River and continue west on the blacktop for half an hour then hit the eastern end of Gibb River Road. A short blast on the corrugations and we arrive at El Questro.
Day 9. El Questro Free Day (Campground)
Day 10. El Questro to Barnett River (Campground)
After a sleep in and breakfast we continue deep into the Kimberleys. The views are stunning and the river crossings are great fun. You will find yourself stopping all morning to take photo’s. The Kimberley region of Western Australia is breathtaking. We spend all day on the Gibb River Road before arriving at our camp spot on the banks of the Barnett River.
Day 11. Barnett River to Windjarna Gorge (Campground)
Continuing west on the Gibb River road the King Leopold Ranges for some of the best views WA has to offer.
Day 12. Windjarna Gorge to Camballin (Bush Camp)
We coinuent south and head for Tunnel Creek. The creek has made a tunnel through the hill and if there isn’t to much water in the creek we can walk / swim from one end to the other.
Day 13. Camballin to Banana Well (Campground)
Day 14. Banana Well to Broome
