What You Can Expect

Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek 4WD Tour from Broome

Tunnel Creek

Your tour begins with an early morning departure from Broome as you travel east into the Kimberley gorges by 4WD. Listen to your guide's expert commentary on the history and geography of the countryside you're traveling through, and stop for morning tea at the Willare Roadhouse beside the Fitzroy River. Visit the historic Boab Prison Tree, measuring more than 50 feet (15 meters) and believed to be more than 1,500 years old.

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.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2013

Great trip, take a podcast or two for the trip home. Good commentary although a strain to hear as quite muffled at times. Guide was ok but found his manner a bit unprofessional and sarcastic at times. He did respond well to some inappropriate questions asked of him, it can't be an easy job. The drive was a long day, over 900kms in all. The stops for morning tea, lunch , afternoon tea and dinner were perfect timing and well supplied. Good to have ordered dinner (extra cost) at morning tea stop and well catered by the roadhouse at the end of the day. Fresh fruit for afternoon tea was fantastic. Views, tunnel caves and Windjana gorge were a real treat. Loved the swim after the walk through the tunnels; It would have been better all up to only
wear swimmers for the walk as our clothes were wet through when we returned to the bus.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2013

It was a great tour. Very detailed and informative commentary by the guide. Quality refreshments during tour.
Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek are must-see sites. Best place to see the fresh water crocs.
