Explore the 700,000-acre El Questro Wilderness Park on horseback, on a 4WD guided adventure, or from the skies by helicopter.

Drive across the red sands of the outback and discover the mystical Purnululu National Park, an area that remained largely unknown until 1982. Here you will explore the distinctive bee-hive dome shaped Bungle Bungles and Cathedral Gorge.

Itinerary

Upon arrival, you will be transferred the short distance from the airport to your hotel by coach. The evening is at your leisure; we suggest taking a stroll to Cable Beach with a chilled bottle of wine or a frosty cold beer to witness its enchanting sunsets.
Broome has many fascinating natural attractions to discover, including the red ochre cliffs and dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point. Scenic flights can take you out over the Buccaneer Archipelago and Cape Leveque, where the contrasting colours of the red cliffs, snow-white sand and turquoise sea all meet. Broome was built on the pearling trade, so a visit isn’t complete without a cruise to Willie Creek Pearl Farm.
