Tour the very best of the Kimberley
Explore the Kimberley with the outback’s leading small-group tour operator, Outback Spirit.
From humble beginnings in the late 1990s, Outback Spirit has grown to become one of the largest tourism operators in the Kimberley.
On Outback Spirit’s most popular tour of the Kimberley, guests travel in a small group aboard five-star all-terrain Mercedes-Benz vehicles and stay in the region’s best wilderness lodges, including the company’s very own Ngauwudu Safari Camp, the most luxurious tented accommodation on the Mitchell Plateau. Built exclusively for Outback Spirit guests, Ngauwudu (pronounced Nar-woo-doo) features 14 deluxe Safari Suites with ensuite bathrooms and allows for an in-depth exploration of the Mitchell Plateau, including the four-tiered Mitchell Falls. Here you can view Gwion Gwion and Wandjina rock art galleries on a guided walk with Indigenous interpreters.
Journey along the Gibb River Road and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of spectacular gorges, waterfalls and swimming holes, including Windjana Gorge, Bell Gorge and Galvans Gorge. Enjoy a stay at El Questro Wilderness Park and an exclusive visit to Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary, a 312,000-hectare naturalist’s paradise on the upper Fitzroy River.
Discover the massive tides of the Kimberley Coast with an adventure to the Horizontal Falls. This intriguing natural phenomenon, located within Talbot Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago, occurs when the second-largest tides in the world hurtle through two narrow coastal gorges, creating a ‘horizontal waterfall effect’.
For a completely different perspective, Outback Spirit also offers guests the opportunity to visit the Kimberley in the Wet, the region’s most dramatic season. See this landscape in its full glory with swollen rivers, flowing waterfalls and famous Kimberley thunderstorms. With roads unpassable, you’ll take to the air in chartered helicopters for a unique view of the region.
