13 Jan, 2012 Exclusive tours with APT’s Kimberley Wilderness Adventures


When APT first began escorting travellers around the rugged beauty of the Kimberley, there was no permanent accommodation so they created a network of lodges, with minimal impact on the environment, and with respect for local communities.

Today, state-of-the-art four-wheel-drive vehicles take you to remote locations, while APT’s strong relationships with traditional landowners mean you’ll have exclusive special permission to enjoy unique accommodation experiences and extraordinary touring with experienced and passionate guides.

Your journey begins along the legendary Gibb River Road, an old stock route stretching for more than 660km between Broome and Kununurra. Here you can take a step back in time and get a feel for life on the land, discovering an arresting landscape of intensely coloured ranges, dramatic gorges and lush waterfalls – everything the Kimberley is famous for.

Heading north along the remote Kalumburu Road, you’ll discover the isolated Mitchell Plateau. Ford the Kind Edwards River and see a range of fascinating Aboriginal rock art sites. Experience the stunning four-tiered Mitchell Falls in depth, hike, a swim, and enjoy an included helicopter flight over the falls. At the end of your busy day of touring, relax at APT’s Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge, exclusive to APT guests.

APT’s private Wilderness Lodges are designed for you to enjoy experience some of the most remote regions of the Kimberley without compromising your comfort. Each Wilderness Lodge features stylish tented cabins with private ensuite bathrooms and comfortable beds with crisp linen, and you’re provided with hearty breakfasts and three course dinners with a complimentary glass of wine. With a two-night stay at each of APT’s Wilderness Lodges, you are perfectly situated to further explore each extraordinary wilderness location.

Our private Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge is located within the heart of Purnululu National Park, offering easy access to Echidna Chasm, Piccaninny Creek, the famous beehive-shaped domes of the Bungle Bungle Range and Cathedral Gorge. A local guide is available to take you on walks through this fascinating national park, to complement your stay in this World Heritage-listed location.

A recent addition to APT’s collection of lodges is APT’s Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge. Located in a restricted area of the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park, Hawk Dreaming’s unique location and tranquil atmosphere offers guests a truly inspiring insight into Aboriginal culture and heritage through the vast array of rock art sites in the vicinity of the lodge.

For those looking to take their Kimberley journey up a notch, or just short on time, APT’s Escorted and Independent Air Safaris enable you to see all the highlights of the Kimberley in a short period of time without undertaking an extended 4WD tour. Imagine a bird’s-eye view of the striped Bungle Bungle Range in Purnululu National Park, and gaining access to breathtaking gorges and gullies.

APT’s pioneering history in escorted touring, their unmatched local knowledge and expertise, their network of exclusive accommodation lodges as well as their Kimberley Based Operations team and dedicated staff can provide the ultimate Kimberley adventure.
