Day 1 - Kununurra to Bullo River Station
Rise early today to enjoy the fresh Kimberley morning. Your HeliSpirit pilot will meet and transfer you to the airport helipad. Lift off from Kununurra and soar over the Ord River Irrigation Area past the huge oasis of farms creating a maze of colours. View the mini bungles in the township of Kununurra, Mirima National Park. Fly low across the border into the Northern Territory, past the Keep River National Park. You may be lucky enough to spot a large estuarine crocodile lazing on the muddy banks of the Keep River. Land at a remote waterfall for a swim and morning tea.
Enjoy the serenity and picturesque surroundings before re-boarding your helicopter for your short flight to your destination, Bullo River Station. View some spectacular pastoral land & grazing cattle before landing on the lawn at the Station homestead. Meet your Bullo River hosts who will help you choose your activities for the day, maybe a day filled with dust, sweat and the exhilaration of station life. Or spend the day exploring stunning landscapes, waterfalls, swimming in remote waterholes or discovering Aboriginal rock art and wildlife.
‘There’s never a boring moment on a station, and there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved and dusty with the team as they care for our cattle’ Sarah Cooper, Station Host.
Join the team as they tackle the day’s activities.

Overnight: Bullo River Station
Day 2 - Bullo River Station
Your days can be filled with dust, sweat and the exhilaration of station life or by simply enjoying a gorgeous lunch by a billabong, taking a sneaky quick dip at a beautiful swimming hole or discovering Aboriginal Rock Art, all in this stunning outback country that Bullo River Station is situated on. The station has a 4,000 strong herd of Brahman-cross cattle, spread across half a million acres and managing them is included in the list of daily tasks to do. You can get out on the station in a 4WD, all terrain vehicle or on horseback.
Activities include bore checks, lick runs and cattle yard work. There are poddy calves to be fed and muster training to do. Or just decide to take a farm tour to learn about everything they do. When two feet is your best way to explore, well trodden trails by cattle or wallabies will take you to billabongs, water holes and river pools where you can watch (and listen) to the wildlife. Take in the breathtaking views as you traverse along the gorges & ridgelines.
The iconic Bullo River Station homestead is situated on the convergence of the Victoria and Bullo Rivers. The generous and comfortable rooms, tasty wholesome meals and cold drinks at the end of the day will revive you after spending a day enjoying the stations activities. Breakfast is served outside on the verandah. Lunch can be a picnic basket filled with goodies to enjoy by a waterhole. Dinner is best enjoyed under the stars in the light of a campfire with new friends.
Spirits and Reserve list wines, are at your own expense.
Overnight: Bullo River Station
Day 3 - Bullo River Station to El Questro via Bungle Bungle
Our destination is Purnululu National Park, a World Heritage Listed area. The Bungle Bungle Range is a 350 million year old sandstone massif. Flying south from Bullo toward Lake Argyle, view the biggest man made lake in the southern hemisphere. Its volume is said to be over 21 times that of Sydney Harbour. Continue over the Ord & Bow rivers, cattle stations and the Osmand Ranges before landing at Purnululu National Park home of the Bungle Bungle.
Here you will join a private overland tour that comprises a drive to the massif and a guided walk through the striped sandstone domes and into Cathedral Gorge, named due to its excellent acoustics. Morning tea, cold drinks and a picnic lunch are included. In the afternoon we depart Purnululu, flying north over the Argyle Diamond Mine where rare pink diamonds were once mined. Continue past the ragged ranges and marvel at this amazing formation, view the Cockburn Range in the afternoon sun before landing at El Questro Homestead in time for sunset drinks.
