Aboriginal culture and rock art along with a variety of wildlife is all part of the Kakadu experience. (cruise incl)

    • Soak in the Thermal Springs at Mataranka
    • Be amazed by the ever changing landscape of Australia’s largest body of fresh water, Lake Argyle. You’ll enjoy a sunset cruise which ends with ‘happy hour’ on the water. (incl)
    • Everyone talks about the Bungle Bungles and you’ll be going there! We’ve organised a full 4WD day trip for you to experience another jewel in the Kimberley crown. Some may also like to do a helicopter ride (not incl) for a different perspective. We’d suggest pre-booking this with us to avoid disappointment if this is on your bucket list.
    • Enjoy a boat cruise at the Geike Gorge (incl)
    • Explore Derby and a 4WD day tour of Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek
    • Three nights in Broome to have plenty of time to experience this popular resort town. Please note we don’t include the any attractions in Broome as a large variety of flights, 4WD trips, camels and Pearl Farm Tours which don’t necessarily appeal to all. The cost for flights, including the #1 Pick the Horizontal Waterfall is costly and not for everyone. We’ll provide separate details on the Broome attractions and would highly suggest we pre-book this for you to avoid disappointment. We feel this gives you the greatest flexibility and value for money – there are plenty of free and low cost ways to explore and learn about the history/culture of Broome, which we let you know about.  Sundowns at Cable Beach are included.
    • We’ve included Karijini National Park tour so you can see the beauty of these deep red gorges that are hidden away on an unsealed road, plus check out the iron ore mining in this area (incl)

    • Before arriving in Perth head north along the stunning coastline and turquoise waters of WA stopping to explore the wildflowers, Kalbarri National Park, the Pinnacles and the interesting coastal towns
