Overview

Hike deep into Bungle Bungles, and explore The Kimberley with us. Come and get amongst the magnificent cone shaped sandstone mountains,
Imagine yourself in a wilderness expanse, exploring rivers and ancient gorges, swimming holes and thermal springs. Our Kimberley trip will encompass the majestic Bungle Bungles, and the renowned El Questro, a Cattle Station with stunning natural beauty.
In the Bungle Bungles we will climb hills to watch the sun set over the ancient landscape, and hike into gorges at sunrise, which allows us to beat the crowds and the heat of the day, and have the vast, quiet Cathedral Gorge all to ourselves. There will be an opportunity to further experience the Bungles from the air, with an early morning helicopter flight.
El Questro will see us having a dip in hot springs and swimming holes, relaxing by the river, and completing a hike through El Questro Gorge- this hike is an adventure in itself! It is a challenging but achievable trek through a narrow gorge, with swimming and pack floats at points along the way. Our guides will be there along the way to support and encourage you, and you will be able to look back on your achievement with pride!

Food

Delicious and nutritious dinner, lunches, all snacks and breakfast will be prepared by our awesome guides. We love our food so be prepared to have freshly ground coffee, yummy snacks, beautiful vegetable based salads, wraps and cheeses. All this food is energy filled to sustain you on the track – oh! and lets not forget a sneaky dessert or two and a glass of wine. We can cater for a range of intolerances and dietary requirements. Contact us if you have any particular requests, however please note that due to the isolated nature of the trip and limitations with food transport on the trail, we will do our best to cater for you. Because we will be away from power and refrigeration, dinners will be high carbohydrate, vegetable-based.
