The Top End of Australia provides opportunities for stunning scenery, fishing, camping and some wonderful adventures.
Colours of the Kimberley
With this Bundle we start in the west with the Kimberley. Here you will find all the scenic beauty of the gorges, ancient mountain ranges, waterfalls and massive beehive domes. We begin our adventure at Wolfe Creek Crater on the Tanamai Road before heading to Fitzroy Crossing for a boat cruise on Danggu-Geikie Gorge.
We visit Broome and watch the camel trains at sunset on Cable Beach. Next we ventured to Derby and the amazing Horizontal Waterfalls.
No trip in the Kimberley is complete without a rough ride along the Gibb River Road. But the rewards are great for taking this iconic Top End adventure. There is much to see along here, including Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek and the waterfalls of Bell Gorge and Manning Gorge.
Further along, you will find Home Valley and El Questro for some more exploring, before heading into Kununurra. The beehive formations of Purnululu National Park will complete your Kimberley adventure.
The Savannah Way
From Kununurra head east to follow the Savannah Way across Northern Territory and on into Queensland.
Again there is much to see in this Top End video, including side visits to Litchfield National Park, Darwin and back through Kakadu National Park.
From there we ventured to Limmen National Park and the private property of Lorella Springs on the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Now we head into Queensland for a special canoe ride through the beautiful Lawn Hill Gorge. Normanton is next, followed by a side trip to Chillagoe, its caves and huge, balancing rock. We complete our cross country ride at Undara National Park lava tubes.
A Top End adventure wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the northern most tip of Australia in Cape York.
In this video you can enjoy the 4 wheel drive challenge of the Old Telegraph Track, the original track to the tip. The creeks on this route are beautiful, but can prove treacherous as you try to cross.
Nowadays some of the route is bitumen as you travel from Lakeland Downs to Weipa, the main town on the peninsula where aluminium is mined. The main road north is a safe option, but only accesses Fruit Bat Falls and Elliot and Twin Falls on the Old Telegraph Track.
