Your aeroplane will land at the remote and unsealed Bellburn Airstrip in Purnululu National Park, where you will be met by your guide.
From here, you will be driven in an air-conditioned 4WD bus to the beginning of your walk. Your guide will lead you on a moderate 3km walk throughout the famous eroded towers and beehive-shaped domes on the Domes Walk. Head towards Cathedral Gorge, where you can walk alongside towering cliffs which create phenomenal natural acoustics within the gorge.
Refuel with your pre-made picnic lunch after a morning of exploring. You will then head out along the rocky creek bed of Piccaninny Creek, which only flows during periods of high rainfall.

Day 4 - 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.
