Itinerary Description:

Days 1 – 3
The Kimberley
The Kimberley Region is vast, covering an expanse of nearly 423,000 square kilometres. With an estimated population of just 30,000 it has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on Earth. It’s known for its mighty rivers, huge ranges and lush – almost magical – waterholes.
This coastal Kimberley location is authentic and very Australian; the Bush Camp sits on a rocky hilltop overlooking a protected bay near Cape Londonderry, a refuge of astonishing natural beauty that you can only access by sea or air.

Catch a trophyWind down or wind up, whatever you choose, you will never be short of things to do at this stunning location:

  • Try your hand at ocean sports fishing and land yourself a trophy.
  • Experienced guides are available to help you explore this pristine slice of wilderness. Regular bush walking trips take you to meet the wildlife – 140 species of birds, rare plants, flowers and animals.
  • Take a picnic lunch to a secluded beach where you can marvel at the shells and coral, or just lay back and soak up the solitude.
  • Head overland by 4WD to bathe in lily-lined billabongs, while birds and butterflies flit overhead.
  • The Faraway Bay area is home to spectacular Ice Age rock art, offering some of the most diverse examples of the mysterious Bradshaw rock art in Australia. Knowledgeable guides lead the way.
  • The 13-metre Diamond Lass will cruise to the King George Falls, nearby islands and bays; it can also be used for fishing. The cruises take you past awe-inspiring coves and red rock gorges; dugongs, dolphins, turtles and manta rays play in the jade blue waters whilst small fish dart in and out of the waves.

Whilst in the Kimberley, 3 night’s accommodation has been included at The Bush Camp Faraway Bay

The Bush Camp at Faraway Bay is a 12-guest escape where clocks are superfluous: castaway at the very edge of the Kimberley, your days move only to the rhythms of tides and sunsets.

As the north closes down for the wet season, the best time for travel is the dry season from April to October, with warm sunny days and cool nights.

Days 4 – 7
The Kimberley
The Kimberley Region is known for its mighty rivers, huge ranges and lush – almost magical – waterholes. Probably the most well-known landmark is the Bungle Bungle Range – striking sandstone domes, striped with orange and grey bands – located in Purnululu National Park, they are estimated to be 360 million years old.

El Questro HomesteadIncluded in your 3 night stay at El Questro Homestead is:

  • A guided boating tour through the spectacular Chamberlain Gorge or a guided walking gorge tour might be more your style.
  • With an abundance of wildlife in this region, you can take a bird-watching tour or even learn about bush culture and the history of this amazing land.
  • Visit the Zebedee Springs which is only offered to El Questro Homestead guests on an exclusive basis.
  • If you are feeling active you can go horse riding through the bush or try your hand at local freshwater fishing at Branco’s Waterhole.
  • If relaxing is more your style, you can enjoy a gourmet lunch on a private cliff top verandah or maybe take a gourmet picnic hamper to enjoy in an intimate setting of your choice.

Whilst in the Kimberley, 3 night’s accommodation has been included at El Questro Homestead

Located in the heart of the beautiful, forbidding Kimberley, El Questro Homestead is an exclusive retreat open to just 12 guests.
As the north closes down for the wet season, the best time for travel is the dry season from April to October, with warm sunny days and cool nights
