Tour the rugged Kim­ber­ley

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - THE BUCKET LIST -

THERE is the chance to jour­ney into the re­mote Kim­ber­ley with Out­back Spirit Tours .

Di­rec­tor An­dre El­lis said the com­pany’s 15-day Ex­quis­ite Kim­ber­ley Ad­ven­ture was one of the most com­pre­hen­sive and pop­u­lar tours to the re­gion.

“Pas­sen­gers en­joy un­sur­passed ac­cess thanks to a net­work of ex­cep­tional wilder­ness lodges and lo­cal part­ner­ships,” he said.

Strate­gi­cally lo­cated, these ac­com­mo­da­tion bases make it pos­si­ble to ex­plore the fur­thest corners of the Kim­ber­ley, in­clud­ing the Mitchell Plateau, Bun­gle Bun­gles and Morn­ing­ton Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary.

The tour in­cludes a half-day ad­ven­ture to the spec­tac­u­lar Hor­i­zon­tal Falls in the Buc­ca­neer Ar­chi­pel­ago where the sec­ond largest tides in the world hurtle through two nar­row coastal gorges and cre­ate a ‘hor­i­zon­tal wa­ter­fall’ ef­fect.

Pas­sen­gers travel from Broome to Tal­bot Bay by sea­plane be­fore board­ing a high pow­ered ad­ven­ture boat to take them through the in­cred­i­ble falls.

Mr El­lis said pas­sen­gers would find it hard to choose a favourite on this fully ac­com­mo­dated ad­ven­ture as there were so many high­lights.

There’s a he­li­copter flight over the Mitchell Falls, an­cient Gwion Gwion and Wand­jina art sites, the gorges of Gibb River Road and swimming in ther­mal pools at Zebedee Springs, just to name a few.

With pas­sen­ger com­fort and safety in mind, Out­back Spirit’s fleet of four-wheel drive coaches is made up ex­clu­sively of five-star Mercedes-Benz ve­hi­cles.

“Not only that, the guides who drive them must have a min­i­mum 10 years of ex­pe­ri­ence, giv­ing pas­sen­gers welcome peace of mind,” Mr El­lis said.

The Ex­quis­ite Kim­ber­ley Ad­ven­ture op­er­ates from Broome to Ku­nunurra via the Gibb River Road and Mitchell Plateau, and re­turns to Broome via the Bun­gle Bun­gles and Fitzroy Cross­ing. A 17-day tour in­clud­ing the Top End is also avail­able.

The tour de­parts fre­quently from May to Septem­ber 2016. Priced at $9995 per per­son twin share, the cost in­cludes all meals, at­trac­tions fees and a cus­tom made ex­plorer pack.

Any­one who books be­fore Novem­ber 23 could fly to Broome for only $99 each way in­clud­ing taxes. Con­di­tions ap­ply.

More in­for­ma­tion and a free brochure are avail­able from Out­back Spirit Tours.
