Kimberley and Pilbara Trip List 2017-18

Latest update: 8 June 2017.

Note. To see which trips are already definite departures and which other trips already have bookings, please see our Availability and Specials page.

Prices. We offer advance purchase discounts of up to 20% on all trips. Details of these and our other discounts are in our Booking form and General Information sheet.
Please note. Some of our costs, especially charter transport, are subject to change without notice. Where we are forced to raise prices because of this, we will honour the old price for anyone who has already booked and paid a deposit on a trip where we provide all the transport and a price midway between the old and the new on a trip where we charter transport.

All our Kimberley tours depart from Kununurra. Our getting here page explains how to get to Kununurra. Our accommodation and things to do page tells you where you can stay and explains other things you can do in town.

Our Karijini Pilbara tours depart from Tom Price. For information about getting to Tom Price and where to stay when you arrive, see our getting here and accommodation pages.

Details of Kimberley trips may need to be changed to fit park and station management needs that arise from time to time.

See full abbreviations, levels of difficulty or pass mouse over code to see short descriptions.
