What You Can Expect

Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek 4WD Tour from Broome

Tunnel Creek

Start your Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek 4WD tour with early morning pickup from your hotel. Departing Broome for the Kimberley, hear informative commentary from your guide on the geography of the region.

You'll stop at the Willare Roadhouse for morning tea beside the Fitzroy River, then continue on to the Boab Prison Tree, rumored to have been used in the 1890s to imprison indigenous Australians en route to nearby Derby for sentencing.

After a look, continue along the Gibb River Road, a former cattle route accessible by 4WD vehicles. You'll arrive at Windjana Gorge, an ancient reef oasis of the Napier Range, made of soaring limestone walls rising more than 300 feet (90 meters). Search for fossils of shells and tiny marine creatures as your guide points out any wildlife, including birds and freshwater crocodiles that stealthily inhabit the Lennard River.

After a picnic lunch, depart Windjana Gorge for Tunnel Creek in the afternoon. Disembark your vehicle for a guided walking tour of subterranean tunnels that form an underground labyrinth beneath the Napier Range. Your guide reveals the history of white settlement in the Kimberley region and shares the legendary tale of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal tracker who led an insurrection against colonizing pastoralists and hid out in the gorge in the late 19th century.

Reward your walk with a refreshing dip in a swimming hole before a last stop at the ruins of Lillimooloora Station to view the sunset. Your 15-hour day trip includes afternoon tea and an optional dinner (own expense), before arriving back in Broome at night.

Long journey but the best way to see so much. Walk through the gorge was definitely a highlight. Loved seeing the crocodiles.

A long day but we saw everything advertised. Even came carefully close to crocodiles. Great guide who was knowledgeable and informative. Food was good for an outback experience. Worth the trip.

The tour was a long day and much to see most of the time. Our driver, Ross, kept the commentary flowing when it needed to be and gave us some breaks to concentrate on the scenery and wildlife. The knowledge displayed by Ross of the country, its stories, the indigenous people of the area kept us all entertained and informed. We would recommend that, for the tunnel walk, specialist boating shoes would make it easier. I know that the instruction given was for shoes that could get wet, but more than that is needed. The food was tasty and adequate well served and kept cold. Drinks were plentiful and again cold. Thanks Ross for being a great host and great company.

Great day Windjana Gorge was great and a swim at Tunnel Creek was refreshing after all the driving. Had a vehicle breakdown on the way but just added to the adventure.

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.

Highly recommended.
