Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Bungle Bungles Piccaninny Gorge Trek

The Bungle Bungles - Purnululu - have legendary status as one of the most unique and remote natural wonders in Australia, if not the world. The splendid isolation of the Bungles is a great attraction to trekkers. Using specially chartered flights, this tour avoids the long hard drive to get to the Bungles, allowing you to delve deep into the heart of this world heritage wonder. Exploring the Piccaninny Gorge, this trip offers you an achievable expedition style bushwalk. The walk follows the gorge as it winds its way between the red and black beehive domes. We'll establish a base camp for a few nights, freeing you to make lightweight exploratory walks high into the upper gorge. stopping at waterholes and caves, soaking in the wild seclusion. Your ultimate destination is "The Fingers", five sandstone chasms made for rock-hopping and sun-soaking, looking to discover the mysteries held within this ancient and weathered land. On the final day you will trek out to Cathedral Gorge before a short transfer to the airstrip to board a stunning scenic flight over the Bungle Bungles and the Kimberley back to Kununurra.
