you undertook just one four-wheel drive tag-along trip in your lifetime
this would be it.|
We begin or adventure in the
centre of Australia at Alice Springs. Once comfortable at the MacDonnel
Caravan Park we have a brief introductory session before heading north
west up the Tanami track. Along the way we explore the grazing
and mining history of this remote area of Australia. Our first camp is
a little known site along the Tanami road where we can watch the sunset
over the wide horizon of the Tanami desert.
across the West Australian border the track deteriorates as we move
away from the major gold mines and into the remoter areas. We
take you away from the Tanami track and onto a more remote track to
Balgo and then to Lake Gregory and the aboriginal community of
Bililuna (Mindibungu). Until recently, this track was inaccessable. The
following day we connect up with the northern end of the Canning Stock
Route before continuing to Wolfe Creek Meterorite Crater made famous in
the movie Wolf Creek.
Our next camp is adjacent
location of the
original township of Halls Creek (Old Halls Creek) on a small
where you can watch the colours of the sunset play on the
most amazing location in the Kimberley region has to be Purnululu
National Park and the Bungle Bungle Range. This ancient
consisting of beehive like mountains will have you totally awestuck. We
spend two days here so that you may explore the spectacular gorges and
chasms of this fascinating region. The access road to Purlululu
Park is deliberately kept unmaintained to a great extent, in order to
limit access to this wonderful site. Travelling with a tag-along
definitely makes the going safer.
From Punululu we
head for Kununurra
and our unspoiled campsite on the Ord River where 5 metre crocodiles
can be seen lazing in the sun (don't worry we camp out of reach of
them). Be sure to bring your fishing rod though, as this is prime
along little known historic tracks we explore the history of
the Wyndham region before camping on the banks of the King River. The
next day we travel over some rugged rocky sections of track and then
over some claypans before exploring the Pentecost River. Our campsite
is at the famous cattle station and resort know as El Questro.
El Questro is the
jewel of the
Kimberley, you will be amazed at the gorges, streams and hot springs
that abound in this remote and othewise barren region. Fish for
Barramundi, explore the 4wd trails and watch the sunset from the
mountain tops, This is truly God's country.
Questro we intitially make our way along the Gibb River Road,
then head north along the Kulumburu road. Here is where we encounter
some amazing aboriginal art. We are headed for Mitchell falls, then the
remote and and almost unexplored regions of the Kimberly coast, but
along the way we camp at a billabong where freshwater crocodiles and
sooty grunter abound. The fishing is something to behold.
Mitchell falls campground we walk into the spectacular falls and if you
out by helicopter. The view from the air confirms just how rugged the
travelling along the Gibb
river road to more spectacular gorges and remote campsites, we walk
750 metres underground at Tunnel Creek- a truly unique experience.
Experience some of the most spectacular scenery in Australia, and don't
forget to bring your camera.

Should you break down while travelling alone, vehicle recovery costs in
the very remote areas could amount to several thousands of dollars. A
