Kimberley Off-Road Adventure Tours: 9-day Kimberley Darwin to Broome tour

Details

Kimberley Off-Road Adventure Tours pride ourselves on offering the ultimate off-road tour to anyone who wants to experience a non-stop adventure in some of the best parts of the Australian outback.  

We offer a 9-day small group Kimberley tour from Darwin to Broome.  We hike, swim, explore and bush camp along the Gibb River Road, venturing into places such as Edith Falls, the Bungle Bungles, El Questro, Manning Gorge and Tunnel Creek.  We spend time spotting native wildlife, exploring the land, discovering ancient rock art and hiking in to some of the most pristine waterfalls in all of Australia. 

These tours are suited to anyone who is fit and active; they're not luxury tours, passengers will often be wild camping with little or no facilities.  It's all about embracing adventure, forgetting about home-comforts and getting to grips with the Australian outback experience. 

Our guides are experienced at taking people all over the Top End of Australia and have an excellent reputation.

The difference between the 9-day Darwin to Broome and the 10-day Broome to Darwin is the pace, the 10-day is slightly slower and you spend a couple of nights at each campsite as opposed to one night on the 9-day.

We’ll explore the islands and bays in search of wildlife including the Short-eared rock-wallaby, wallaroo, Freshwater crocodile, and numerous fish species and bird-life. We’ll also have the opportunity to plunge into the cool waters and take a refreshing swim before we head to the island to set-up camp. We will enjoy the welcomed solitude and sunset with a campfire meal, before resting for the night ready to be woken by the sound of water, wildlife and an unmissable sunrise.
