9-Day Broome to Darwin Multi-Day Camping Adventure Including Gibb River Road, Bungle Bungles and Lake Argyle
US$1,481.68
Overview
Rather than driving or taking a bus from Broome to Darwin, get up close to the landscape by hiking and camping your way there. This 9-day adventure allows you the time to really soak up the atmosphere as you camp at private wilderness camps, including one on a private island; swim in creeks and rivers, explore gorges, jump off waterfalls, and visit hidden Aboriginal art galleries. Includes all camping equipment (except sleeping bags) and fees, as well as food.
What to Expect

Day 1: Broome to Tunnel Creek
Depart Broome at 6am and head east into the Kimberley and onto the Gibb River Road. Visit Windjana Gorge, Derby and the Boab Prison tree before making this your exclusive bush camp under the stars.

Day 2: Tunnel Creek To Bush Camp
Break camp early and head for Tunnel Creek. Getting there nice and early normally ensures you'll have the place to yourself and are able to explore the 0.4-mile (700-meter) long cave and it's amazing features. From Tunnel Creek head for Bell Gorge, one of the nicest in the Kimberley where you'll do a short hike and have plenty of time for swimming and exploring. From Bell Gorge push onto another bush camp.

Day 3: Bush Camp to Manning Gorge
Today you'll spend most of the day exploring the amazing Manning Gorge. Having the whole day allows you to relax and take some of the less conventional routes which take you to lost gorges and ancient rock art. Camp tonight is on the banks of the Manning River. If time permits you may also see Adcock and Galvan's Gorges.

Day 4: Manning Gorge to Pentecost River
Today, push east toward the Pentecost River and Cockburn Range country. There are a few nice spots to visit today including waterholes and art sites.

Day 5: Pentecost River to Purnululu National Park/Bungle Bungles
From your amazing camp site, drive a short distance to Emma falls at El Questro Station. Here there is great 3km long hike ending at a beautiful waterhole. Next, push onto Purnululu National Park, ideally arriving in time for sunset.

Day 6: Purnululu National Park to Bush Camp
Spend the day at Purnululu exploring all there is on offer including the Picaninny creek area, Cathedral Gorge and Echidna Chasm. There is also time for a scenic flight for those interested (payable direct). Your camp tonight is by a waterhole.

Day 7: Bush Camp to Lake Argyle
Today head for Lake Argyle where you'll jump on a boat and camp on an island (boat cruise is payable direct on the day of travel), an activity that is regularly voted as a highlight of the trip. Waking up with the sun on your private island is a great experience.

Day 8: Lake Argyle to Victoria River
From Lake Argyle, cross into the Northern Territory and head for the Victoria River region to another private campsite on the banks of the Victoria River.

Day 9: Victoria River to Darwin
Your last day allows plenty of time to explore Edith Falls in Nitmiluk National Park where there is a variety of hikes from a couple of kilometers up to 10-km depending on how enthusiastic you're feeling. There will also be plenty of time to spend in the last perfect waterfall of the trip. Arrive into Darwin at approximately 6pm.
