Itinerary Details

Day 1 - Lake Kununurra Sunset Dinner Cruise

Once you climb on board the MV Jabiru, a purpose built vessel for your cruise, you will wind through Lily Creek and the picturesque lagoon. Great photographic opportunities will be endless during the afternoon. When you reach into the open water of Lake Kununurra, you will cruise upstream toward the Sleeping Buddha, a rock formation that can resemble a person lying down bathing in the afternoon sun. You will turn back toward the Diversion Dam Wall, a major project completed back in 1967. Appetisers will be served once you reach the sunset dinner location in Packsaddle Lagoon. Here you will soak up the tranquility of nature as you enjoy your Kimberley inspired dinner with a complimentary drink. Additional drinks can be purchased from the licensed bar.

Day 2 - Mitchell Falls Discoverer

Departing Kununurra, this tour begins with a scenic aeroplane flight over the Ord River, Carlton Hill Station, Wyndham and the Cambridge Gulf, before reaching the coast. Along the way, you will witness stunning views of beautifully patterned mud flats, as well as the magnificent Berkeley River, King George Falls, and Kalumburu. This flight lands at the remote Mitchell Plateau Airstrip, where you will disembark and board a pristine HeliSpirit helicopter. The helicopter will transfer you from the airstrip to the beginning of the walk at the campground. You will follow your tour guide on a beautiful 4.5 kilometre hike viewing some indigenous art along the way into the stunning Mitchell Falls. This hike can be challenging at points, with uneven tracks and river crossings, so there is an option to take a helicopter transfer straight from the campground to the falls (additional $160 per person – min 2 may be required). Once arriving at the falls, you will have time to marvel at their beauty, take a swim in the Mitchell River and admire the fascinating flora and fauna of this area while enjoying a fresh picnic-style lunch. You will transfer via helicopter from the top of the falls including an orbit or two and then onto the airstrip. You will board the aeroplane for your return scenic flight to Kununurra passing over El Questro and the Cockburn Range.

What to bring: Camera fully charged & memory space, day pack, swimwear, towel,
refillable water bottle, sturdy walking/hiking shoes that can get wet, sun protective
cool clothing, hat, sunscreen, and spare pair of socks.

Departs Kununurra | May to August | Thursday and Saturday | 6:00am
