FAQs

Can I request any additional experiences be added to one of your itineraries?

You most definitely can.  The majority of the itineraries on our website are suggested itineraries so these can be tailored to suit.

All you have to do is contact us through our website form and let us know what you would like to do.  We can take it from there.

How do I get to the Kimberley?

The short answer is to drive, ride or fly!

If you are flying in to visit the Kimberley and live on the Eastern side of Australia,  you would generally arrive via Darwin.  We recommend flying with Western Australian owned and operated Nexus Airlines for your Darwin to Kununurra/Broome domestic flights.

If arriving from South Australia or Western Australia you can fly direct from Perth to both Broome and Kununurra.

When we create an itinerary for you, we will include the details of the domestic flights that would work best with your itinerary.

How long would you recommend I need to see the highlights of the Kimberley?

This is a tough question to answer and really comes down to how much time you have and what your budget will allow.  We recommend at least 7-14 nights if you would like to get the most out of your visit to the Kimberley.  There is so much to see and do.

We have a number of suggested itineraries on our website that cater to all timeframes.  Make sure you have a look.

 

What clothing and footwear would you recommend?

Shoes: Sturdy rubber soled walking shoes, ones that can get wet and will dry out quickly. Some slip on casual “thongs” or sandals for getting to and from bathrooms or swimming pools. A pair of “going out” shoes/sandals – no heels please ladies!

When is the best time of year to visit the Kimberley?

Pending how big the wet season has been, roads are generally open from mid-April onwards.  Most destinations and experiences are operating until mid-late September.  As the weather starts to warm up and visitor numbers ease off, various attractions will close for the ‘build up’ to the wet season.

The waterfall season in February and March is amazing, but you need to be flexible with your time as storms can often close roads.  Check out our suggested Wet Season Itinerary

Should I be concerned about insects or wildlife when I’m travelling through The Kimberley?

Not concerned, but be aware.

Do NOT swim in rivers or any bodies of water unless advised it is safe to do so.  Saltwater crocodiles are prevalent throughout the Kimberley.  They also live in fresh water so don’t be fooled by their name.

Always walk with a torch at night and shake out your shoes before you put them on if you’ve left them for a while.

I’m interested in the ancestral history and heritage of the area. Can you connect me with an indigenous guide?

Absolutely yes! It’s a wonderful experience to connect with the traditional owners and there are lots of opportunities to do so.

When travelling by car through the Outback, what do I need to be mindful of?

Don’t drive fast, take your time. Move off the road for large roadtrains, they can’t get off the sealed parts. Be aware that animals stray onto the road especially at the ends of the day and at night. Carry an extra spare tyre, plan your refueling stops, carry emergency food and water (some cans of food and muesli bars is sufficient).

What essential items should I bring on my Kimberley adventure?

A small day pack for hands free walking, broad brimmed hat, water bottle/s, sunscreen, light weight cotton clothing, walking shoes, bathers, sarong, camera, torch.

Are there any prohibited or restricted items I am unable to bring into Western Australia (eg. Fruit or vegetables).

No fruit, vegetables, honey, flowers or plant materials are permitted into WA.
