About the Trek

Remote, sparsely populated
and unparalleled biodiversity

Remote, sparsely populated and unparalleled biodiversity

Occupying an immense area of the North West part of Australia, the Kimberley is remote, sparsely populated and contains unparalleled biodiversity.

It is a hidden world of deep gorges, rugged escarpments and plateaus, interspersed with cascading waterfalls and breathtaking scenery. Your experience will take you into the heart of this most magnificent of remote areas.

After an awe-inspiring helicopter ride to the start point, we walk through ancient river beds and swim in the crystal-clear waterholes; you will marvel at the ruggedness of the surrounding landscape.

Our 10-day trek takes us
through areas seldom seen

We are picked up on the shores of Lake Argyle and taken to a special place for an overnight camp.

The sunset is breathtaking as we sit around our camp and take in the panoramic view of the surrounding Kimberley.

An early boat pick up the next morning and an exhilarating ride to our canoeing start point below the Argyle Dam wall on the Ord river. A paddle along the waters of the Ord with overnight camps on sandy beaches, will take us back to Kununurra. There will be approximately 4 – 6 hours of walking each day.
