    Day 1 Welcome to Darwin
    Life in cosmopolitan Darwin, Australia’s only tropical capital, is vibrant but unhurried. Take an afternoon tour of the city, then enjoy a Welcome Reception and dinner this evening with your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a restaurant that affords spectacular waterfront views.

    Day 2 Darwin - Katherine
    Travel south along the Stuart Highway today, stopping at Adelaide River’s poignant War Cemetery. This afternoon, travel on via Katherine to Nitmiluk National Park, where a tranquil cruise along the spectacular Katherine Gorge will allow you to sense the spirituality of the land. Catch glimpses of wildlife and learn about the history and culture of the local traditional owners, the Jawoyn people. Later on you’ll meet Tom Curtain during his entertaining show at the Katherine Outback Experience.

    Day 3 Katherine - Kununurra
    Watch the landscape transform dramatically as you journey across vast pastoral leases and Aboriginal homelands into Western Australia. Pause at the historic Durack Homestead, built in 1895. Later, cruise along the Ord River, which supports an abundance of native fish, birds and marsupials. Experience a magical sunset over the water before your arrival in Kununurra.

    Day 4 Kununurra
    Today you may choose between an optional experience early-morning scenic flight over the spectacular beehive-shaped towers of the Bungle Bungle Range or a full-day 4WD tour of the Bungle Bungles. Otherwise tour Kununurra with your Travel Director. This evening, dine on locally-grown produce at a privately-hosted Be My Guest dinner in the heart of Kununurra’s sandalwood plantations.

    Day 5 Kununurra - Emma Gorge
    This morning, take a guided tour of an Ord River rum distillery before travelling on to Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve (weather permitting) to see egrets, herons, ibis, magpie geese and perhaps even a jabiru or lurking crocodile. Continue to the Gibb River Road to your safari-style tented cabin nestled in an oasis of native pandanus and palms at the foot of the red-hued Cockburn Ranges in the El Questro Wilderness Park.

    Day 6 El Questro
    Awake to the calls of native birds, and after a hearty breakfast, take a cruise on Chamberlain Gorge, an extensive waterhole fringed by tropical vegetation and soaring escarpments. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure, perhaps taking a dip in the pool, relaxing with a good book on your cabin’s veranda, or joining your Travel Director for a hike to Emma Gorge and a dip in its crystal-clear waterhole.

    Day 7 Emma Gorge - Halls Creek
    Today join a local Indigenous guide for a tour of the famous Argyle Diamond Mine, the world’s largest source of coloured diamonds. Continue south to the historic town of Halls Creek.

    Day 8 Halls Creek - Fitzroy Crossing
    Travel on to the remote township of Fitzroy Crossing this morning, stopping en route at Halls Creek to visit an art gallery with a chance to meet Indigenous artists. This afternoon, cruise with a local guide through magnificent Geikie Gorge, watching for freshwater crocodiles, fruit-bats and wallabies as the 30-metre walls of the gorge tower above you.

    Day 9 Fitzroy Crossing - Broome
    Travel through spectacular landscapes today en route to the former pearling outpost of Broome. Enjoy a town tour with your Travel Director, visiting the fascinating Japanese Cemetery and nearby Gantheaume Point, whose rugged red cliffs rise in stark contrast to the cobalt blue waters. Relax with a drink while the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.

    Day 10 Broome Free Time
    Today is yours to explore this tropical hideaway. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the pristine sands of Cable Beach and swim in its turquoise waters, or wander through Chinatown and shop for pearls. Tonight, join your fellow travellers for a Farewell Dinner.

    Day 11 Farewell from Broome
    Say farewell to your fellow travellers when your holiday comes to an end this morning after breakfast.
