  • While this is a walking tour you do not need to be an elite athlete to complete our tours. The walks in the Kimberley are not particularly difficult. Some are quite rocky underfoot however none are particularly long, so we can afford to take our time. Most of the walks include an opportunity to swim in a beautiful water hole.
  • Each person will be given their own tent but they are big enough to share with a travel companion also
  • May to August is the best time in the Kimberley. There is still lots of water in the swimming holes and waterfalls, but the chance of getting rain is much reduced. The days will be warm and evenings mild.
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Near public transportation
