Days 1-3 Broome
The beaches and bays of sunny Broome are the perfect starting point for your adventure. Relax on the sweeping sands of Cable Beach and on your second day learn of Broome’s pearling history on an informative tour, culminating in an atmospheric camel ride along the beach at sunset.
Day 4 Broome to Yeeda Station
Enjoy your first taste of the outback with an overnight stay at a historic working cattle station. Try your hand at fishing in the creek for the local delicacy, barramundi, and taste a hearty meal of delicious local beef, reared on the vast plains of the station.
Day 5 Yeeda Station to Bell Gorge
Stretching over 400 miles in length, your first stop along on the legendary ‘Gibb’ is the rising black cliffs of Windjana Gorge, where you’ll discover ancient fossil swirls imprinted in the rocks and freshwater crocodiles sunbathing by the waterholes.
Day 6 Bell Gorge
Nestled within the King Leopold Ranges, Bell Gorge is one of the most famous along the route. Spend a the day hiking along the creek, swimming in refreshing pools and admiring the majestic waterfalls.
Day 7 Bell Gorge to Mount Elizabeth Station
Venture deeper into the heart of the Kimberley to Mount Elizabeth Station, an authentic cattle station home to more misty falls and gorges – and where if you look carefully you can discover beautiful, ancient Aboriginal art depicted on the rocks.
Days 8-9 Mount Elizabeth Station to El Questro Wilderness Park
El Questro Wilderness Park awaits at the tail end of the road. Here you’ll stay close to striking Emma Gorge, known for its deep pools and thermal waters.
Days 10-11 El Questro Wilderness Park to Kununurra
Enjoy the relative civilisation of Kununurra and perhaps visit immense Lake Argyle, the largest expanse of water in Australia.
Day 12 Kununurra to Timber Creek
It’s time to leave the Western territory to explore the lush, tropical Top End. Break this longer drive overnight in Timber Creek, a sleepy pastoral town.
Days 13-14 Timber Creek to Katherine
Poised on the banks of the Katherine River, this outback town is ideally placed for your cruise through the imposing cliff walls of wondrous Nitmiluk Gorge.
Days 15-16 Katherine to Kakadu NP
Australia’s largest national park is vast, varied and brimming with Aboriginal culture, thundering falls and abundant birdlife. Enjoy bush walks, cruise through the wetlands and discover the outdoor rock art galleries at Nourlangie and Ubirr.
Days 17-18 Kakadu NP to Darwin
Leave Kakadu behind and time permitting, stop by the Mary River wetlands, known for its huge population of saltwater crocodiles. On arrival in Darwin enjoy dinner at one of the beach restaurants as the sun sets.
