Visit the Kimberley in all its glory ‑ from the spectacular gorges and swimming holes to the abundant wildlife, all in 15 fun filled days while supporting Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens.
On this exclusive itinerary for the active Foundation & Friend, we take 15 fun filled days to explore the best that the Kimberley region has to offer. From the Gibb River Road gorges, El Questro Wilderness Park to the Purnululu National Park (the Bungle Bungles) – you will see an abundant array of wildlife, stunning views and historic sites. You will travel for the entire trip in air‑conditioned comfort in a well appointed 4WD coach, and enjoy fully guided walks along the way.
You will spend a little time each day to walk, swim, relax, and soak up the surrounding beauty – all the while journeying into the untouched unparalleled beauty that is the Kimberley.
We hope you can join us to travel the world while supporting Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens.
