The Kimberley, Kakadu and Katherine are three of Australia's most iconic landscapes, and this tour from The Senior and Travelrite will take you there... and more.
This simply magic tour, timed for July 15-26, 2024, begins in the Western Australian town of Broome.
There's a full day to take in the Broome sights, including Chinatown, the Pearl Luggers Museum, the old courthouse and Broome Cemetery, and the must-see dinosaur footprints preserved in rock at Gantheaume Point.
Then the magic really begins - in the form of the amazing Horizontal Falls. The group will first see the sight from the sky and then at closer quarters on a fast boat cruise.
Later there's time for a visit a pearl farm to get a feel for the history of the industry in WA.
A plane trip to Kununurra is followed by sightseeing of the surrounding agricultural region.
Kununurra is the base to access the World Heritage listed Bungle Bungles - and the plane gives a birds eye view. After touchdown, a 4WD bus gives tour members a closer look at the black and orange banded dome structures, a main feature of Purnululu National Park. There's an opportunity to trek the 3km Domes Walk, which takes in Cathedral Gorge and its soaring cliffs.
A scenic flight back to Kununurra gives an aerial look at the Argyle Diamond Mine, the home of the pink sparkler.
Back on terra firma, the next day is spent on a journey by coach through Durack country to Lake Argyle. Travellers will check out the Argyle Downs Homestead Museum before being driven to a spectacular location to view the lake.
Boating company Triple J tours escorts the group back to Kununurra on a 55km cruise. You might spot some of the local flora and fauna including a croc if you're lucky.
The following morning it's time to board a flight to Darwin.

The park is home an environmental wonderland with terrain encompassing wetlands, rivers and sandstone escarpments, abundant wildlife and some of the country's best Aboriginal rock art. A World Heritage site, it covers nearly 20,000 square kilometres.
Before leaving Kakadu and travelling to Katherine, there's time to visit the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre, Nourlangie Rock for some Aboriginal art, and then on to Kakadu's Yellow Water billabong.
