Explore ancient landscapes in WAKimberley, Western Australia
Explore remote, ancient landscapes in Western Australia with Kingfisher Tours, with one day and multi-day expeditions of the Kimberley region with local Aboriginal guides.
Travellers can fly over the Bungle Bungles, walk in a World-Heritage listed landscape and visit remote communities with guides, who share stories of friends and families, and impart cultural knowledge. Learn about bush medicine, native plant identification, and be immersed in Indigenous storytelling by the Traditional Owners of these lands.
One of the most stunning tours is a Bungles Day Trek, flying over Lake Kununurra, Lake Argyle and the Osmond Ranges, and a Welcome to Country ceremony by a local Aboriginal guide. Visitors walk up the Echidna lookout, and hear stories of native animals, and then explore the spectacular chasm.
Guides sing traditional songs of the gorges that are thousands of years old and explain the cultural and geological history of the area. The stunning dome-like rock formations are estimated to be around 350 million years old. Aboriginal people have inhabited the area for 40,000 years and bring this stunning UNESCO Natural World Heritage site to life.
There are direct flights to Kununurra from Perth, Broome and Darwin.
Scenic and ground tours from AUD$690 per adult.
