What You Can Expect
Your tour continues along the Gibb River Road, traveling towards the ancient Napier Range and Windjana Gorge. Experience the tranquil beauty of this remote oasis, where the limestone walls rise more than 300 feet (90 meters). Keep an eye out for freshwater crocodiles and birds hiding in the Lennard River that runs through Windjana Gorge, and look for fossils of shells and sea creatures on the soaring rock walls.
After enjoying a picnic lunch at Windjana Gorge, spend the afternoon exploring Tunnel Creek on a guided walking tour. Discover secret caves in the network of underground tunnels that run for half a mile beneath the Napier Range, and take a refreshing swim in a picturesque waterhole. Hear legends from the past, including the tale of Jandamarra, a local Aborigine who led an insurrection against the settlers and hid out in the gorge in the 1890s.
The last stop on your tour is a sunset visit to the ruins of Lillimooloora Station, revealing the history of white settlement in this area more than a century ago.
Your return trip by 4WD includes an optional dinner (own expense), arriving back in Broome at around 10:30pm.
We had a great time on the tour. The guide was very informative and clearly passionate about his role and sharing his experiences.
The coach was comfortable and well equipped and the stops were well planned and evenly spaced.
The highlight would have been Tunnel Creek. Brighter torches would have been a plus - note to bring your own ultrabright torch and batteries!!
Would have been nice to have caught the sunset over the black soil planes but due to one participant's difficulty getting out of the cave, this delayed our arrival at the site. Nonetheless, post sunset views were spectacular.
The drive was long but the parks were breathtaking.
