After you’ve ridden a camel along Cable Beach at sunset and got a taste for Broome’s rich colonial and pearling history, take to the road in an all-terrain 4x4 to explore the Kimberley’s red desert splendor. Road trips head out to the remote white-sand beaches of Cape Leveque, fringed by terracotta cliffs. To see this ancient landscape from the air, scenic flights return to Broome with a photogenic dip over the Dampier Peninsula islands.
Inland, the waterways and limestone cliffs of Geikie Gorge have been carved over the millennia by the mighty Fitzroy River. Transforming from a stream in the dry season to a gushing waterway in the wet, the Kimberley’s most accessible national park has tranquil, safe swimming holes, fossilized reefs and plenty of wildlife, including waterbirds and freshwater crocodiles. Follow the waterway on an easy riverbank walk, or take an Aboriginal-guided boat tour to hear the Dreamtime legends of the Kimberley and Geikie Gorge, share bush tucker and follow animal tracks.
Around 355 km (220 miles) east of Broome, Windjana Gorge is part of an ancient barrier reef, formed more than 300 million years ago. Rugged cliffs border a lushly treed valley dotted with pools and waterways, ideal for hiking and photography. The freshwater crocodiles aren’t so friendly, so swimming isn’t encouraged, but they’re fascinating critters to watch from the riverbank.
En route to Windjana Gorge, make sure to stop off at Tunnel Creek. The underground flooded tunnel is part of an ancient limestone reef system, carpeted with sand, protected by a narrow entrance of massive boulders and roofed with surreal formations of stalactites.
