Australian Specialist when planning your west coast adventure to make sure you maximise your holiday experience. Book early: West Australia has very limited availability and often books out well in advance. It is recommended to book early to avoid disappointment.

Modern Roads West Australia is connected by a network of modern and efficient highways that lack the volumes of traffic experienced in eastern Australia and other parts of the world. Often great distances can be covered and only a hand full of cars pass on the other carriageway. Roads pass through some very dramatic and varied scenery making self-driving a pleasure and personal adventure.

Camper Vans Perhaps you prefer to take your accommodation with you in the form of a fully equipped Motor Home. Camper hire is available from Perth, Broome and Darwin. One way hires are also available between these centres.

4WD Vehicles If you are exploring national parks in the south west or travelling north of Perth a 4WD is recommended to enable you to fully access these spectacular areas. The heart of the real scenery is often a ‘fun’ 4WD off the main roads.

Climate Western Australia is the sunniest state in the driest continent. The sun can shine day after day for most of the year with significant rainfall limited only to certain months. While no one can guarantee the weather, West Australians happily plan ahead in the knowledge that it will be another monotonous blue sky day. West Australia is blessed with warm but dry weather. Unlike humid areas, the west coast of Australia is mostly arid and very comfortable even at high temperatures. South from Perth tends to become cooler and more green. North from Perth tends to be hotter and more red. Broome experiences sunny dry conditions in the winter months and tropical ‘green’ summers. Whatever the time of year, West Australia offers a varied climate from north to south. Remember the sun can be harsh if due care and protection is not taken, always apply sun block & drink plenty of fluids.

Wildflowers Prolific wildflowers abound West Australia - thousands of unique local varieties are yet to be named. Wildflowers can appear almost anywhere - seasons vary depending on the areas visited and time of year. Discover West coach tours, safari tours and self-drive holidays will take you through areas world renowned for massive expanses of carpeted landscapes. The wildflower symbol in the holiday maps indicate the seasons that can be good times to experience the kaleidoscope of colours and thousands of varieties in that area. See discoverWest.com for details of specific wildflowers and regions.

Touring West Australia Coach Holidays

LUXURY Luxury COACH Coach

Sit back and admire West Australia’s magnificent scenery from the comfort of a fully escorted coach holiday. The informative tours are conducted with local West Australian coach captains and tour hosts who are intimate with our unique botany, geology, geography, mining and farming techniques. They will share with you their experiences of our great State and make you feel completely at home here. Their professionalism is second to none. There are no hidden extras. All meals, entry fees, accommodation, cruises and most morning and afternoon teas are included in the price.

The Larger Luxury Coaches have seatbelts, power steering, full air suspension and safety braking to ensure your wellbeing. Country accommodation is often of the highest standard available at that location and tends to be in 3 to 4 star motel or hotel accommodation. Passengers find the modern vehicles remarkably comfortable. They have cosy coach seats with arm and headrests, climate control air-conditioning with individual vent controls.

BUDGET

Budget COACHCoach Modern Five Star luxury touring coaches offer passengers many creature comforts, including deluxe fabric covered reclining seats with arm and head rests, climate control air-conditioning with individual vent controls and individual reading lights. The larger vehicles have television/video, sophisticated sound system, chilled drinking fountain, tea/coffee making facilities, a kneeling device to assist boarding and a toilet/ rest room on-board.

The dining experiences are memorable. Mouth-watering meals made with local produce, often with local wines available for purchase with your evening meal.

Wide tinted windows give unobstructed visibility and smart curtains afford that feeling of comfort and luxury. The Budget Coaches do not have features such as onboard toilets, however, this is compensated for by the smaller group size for the tours. The tours stop frequently, where the small group size allows for speedy passenger embarkation/disembarkation. The Budget Coach tours tend to include light activities during the day such as cave tours, beach swimming, and short bush walks. The activities are not strenuous and but require a general level of fitness. The vehicles used in these more budget tours are rated as 3 or 4 Star Coaches.

Each itinerary indicates all of the meals you will receive, as follows: [B] Breakfast [L] Lunch [D] Dinner For people travelling on their own - this could be a wonderful chance to meet many new friends in a friendly environment. The single supplement – “Single Supp” enables single passengers to guarantee their own room throughout. Otherwise for that tour, single passengers can choose to pay the twin share rate and possibly share with another same-sex passenger (if you can not be matched you will have your own room at no extra cost). A large range of coach tours are available throughout the South West and North West. Often there are several individual tours following similar itineraries, each tour offering something different. All coach tour accommodation comes with your own private en-suite bathroom, unless otherwise specified in the tour description. Coach tours are either conducted in “Luxury Coaches” or “Budget Coaches”.

The height of the larger coaches give you a magnificent panorama not available to smaller vehicles. As tours are rarely full, it is likely that passengers can spread out on the Luxury Coach. Porterage of your luggage is included – so there are no worries about carrying luggage. Elderly and disabled and passengers are taken very good care of.

4WD Safari Tours

4WD 4WD SAFARISafari

Get off the beaten track and into the scenery with these 4WD-fun adventures in specially converted, modern offroad vehicles with luxury coach seats and air-conditioning. Often the heart of the real scenery is a fun 4WD off the main roads, making an “off road” vehicle absolutely necessary. Safari tours are an excellent way to fully experience all that the vast west coast has to offer.

Age is no barrier, the safari will suit anyone who is fit and adventurous. Great camaraderie is built during the tour as passengers lend a hand and become part of a ‘team’. There are no hidden extras. All equipment necessary for your safari is provided. All meals, entry fees, accommodation and cruises are included in the price. Safari tours in this brochure tend to be upmarket with a variety of accommodation, depending on availability at these awesome scenic locations. Accommodation options include Cattle Station or Sheep Station stays, purpose built

perth Our highly cosmopolitan metropolis, set between the white fringed beaches of the sparkling Indian Ocean to the west and the lush Darling Ranges to the east, with the Swan River “water playground” winding through its heart. The abundance of world class entertainment, sporting events and cultural festivals, along with its phenomenal growth, belies its status as the most isolated capital city in the world. Its friendly multi-cultural diversity is no better reflected than in the colourful and lively dining experiences; from ultra-sophisticated southern European alfresco cafes to a complete array of Asian cuisines - all offering unsurpassed value for money. A place where beef sirloin, rock lobsters, mangoes and world class wines are just a part of daily life. Renowned for its beauty and the friendly smiling faces of its residents, no other city has a more perfect climate or life-style.

Attractions

Swan River

Perth city attractions include: Kings Park (400 hectares of virgin bushland plus beautifully manicured gardens) and offers the most spectacular view of Perth’s skyline, the sunset reflecting off the glass skyscrapers is not to be missed. Perth Zoo, Burswood Casino, Perth Mint - Australia’s precious metal refinery, Adventure World, The Swan Bells, wildlife parks such as Caversham. Scitech discovery centre. Perth’s many Museums. Perth Institute of Contemporary Art. Numerous world class sports and recreational facilities.

Ride the worlds best cycling trail along the foreshores of the vibrant Swan River. Perhaps see dolphins at play, colourful sail boats skim the waters and boats cruise to the Swan Valley wineries or to fabulous Fremantle. Visit the Bell Tower, then catch a ferry boat to the south shore for a great view of the city and Kings Park; see the wetlands, bustling with vegetation and birdlife; walk to Heirrison Island and see the mob of wild kangaroos in the CBD. Or simply dip your toes in and enjoy!

Shopping

Beaches

Central Perth is the main shopping district; Subiaco, Claremont, Leederville, Cottesloe and Fremantle all have boutiques, galleries and cafes lining their leafy main streets. Ultra chic King Street is the centre of Perth’s sophisticated West End. Numerous suburban shopping centres offer a wide variety of stores. With late night and seven day shopping, Perth has become a shopping mecca for its northern Asian neighbours, who take advantage of the local designs and value for money.

Acclaimed as having Australia’s best city beaches, Cottesloe Beach, City Beach and Scarborough Beach are Perth’s most popular seaside spots. Deserted beaches close to the city, however, are never hard to find.

Kings Park Sweeping skyward from the river foreshore and covering 400 hectares of Mount Eliza, Kings Park is Perth’s splendid land based playground. Wildflowers, wildlife and native bush walk trails; viewing towers and platforms for great views across the Swan to the city and hills beyond. Get a birds eye view from the tree top walk, visit the Aboriginal Art Gallery to see hand crafted work of master artisans at “Aspects”.

Scarborough Beach The long Scarborough Beach is home to one of Perth’s major Surf Life Saving Clubs that patrol the city’s many beaches. Indian Ocean rollers lap soft white sand and the wide ocean view reaches from Fremantle to Hillarys. Scarborough is young and energetic; grassed picnic and barbecue areas make up the streetscape and the relaxed seaside atmosphere, drawing people to breakfast, brunch and fabulous sunset dinners in alfresco restaurants, cafes and pubs.

Average Daily Hours of Sunshine

After the sunset over the Indian Ocean, Northbridge, a district one block back from the city, springs to life. Several streets of restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and night-clubs. The night’s last revellers make their way home as the sun rises over the Darling Ranges. Classical concerts, ballet, contemporary performances, touring west-end shows, touring blockbuster rock/pop concerts, cinema in deck chairs under the stars, various restaurant and cafe districts, Burswood Casino, and a host of other night thrills are regular temptations.


Fremantle

Cottesloe Beach

The maritime centre of the west boasts spectacular colonial architecture, vibrant restaurant and cafe lined streets plus an energetically colourful market. It is famed for a somewhat bohemian atmosphere and a rich history. Cappucino strip and the new Maritime Museum are not to be missed.

Cottesloe Beach is in Perth’s exclusive ‘western suburbs’ between the city and Fremantle. Watch the world go by; fish off the breakwater, play volley ball, swim, surf, dine in a chic cafe, or celebrate the view from one of the iconic beachside restaurants or Aussie hotels and watch perfect sunsets over the Indian Ocean. Perth often celebrates life at Cottesloe with its streetscape of Norfolk Island Pines; wide tiers of the esplanade form a natural amphitheatre for world class bands or symphony orchestras.

Rottnest Island Our island in the sun; coral reefs in gin-clear water and soft white sandy beaches; secluded bays where dolphins play and deserted cycle paths are rolled out to explore them. Where private cars and spear guns are banned and the surrounding sea is a marine sanctuary protecting fish and other marine creatures. Hire a bike and tour the island, or take a bus tour. See quokkas, tiny kangaroo like marsupials and trees native to the Island; hike woodlands and scattered salt lakes or walk boardwalks and see unique lizards and birdlife. Dive a wrecksite or snorkel the 20 species of coral and 360 species of fish; surf or body board, or take a fishing trip. Visit the museum; the lighthouse and Oliver Hill. Dine at the hotel, the pub and the few restaurants and cafes and other shops permitted in this most uncommercial of islands. Enjoy the peacocks as they parade through the tiny settlement.

Subiaco Chic, cosmopolitan ‘Subi’ has two characters; old Subi is lined with elegant buildings, desirable colonial homes with pretty gardens in gentile streets; its alter ego - ‘Centro’ is modern apartments and townhouses, set around the new Subi-Centro train station. Subi is lively fashion and style; chic restaurants and bars sit cheek by jowl with trendy designer label and homeware boutiques; vibrant weekend markets have fresh produce, arts and crafts. Subi Oval (stadium) hosts international sports tournaments and bands and singers.

Perth Hills Thirty minutes from Perth experience wineries, fruit orchards and Michelin star restaurants; native fauna and flora John Forrest and Mundaring National Parks. See the genius of engineer CY O’Connor; historic inns come alive to lamb spit lunches and bush bands on weekends and the Bibbulmun Track begins at Mundaring. Characterful townships, glorious scenery, craft or antique shops, hospitable cafes and wine-tastings add extra spice to the Hills experience.

Indian Ocean Sunsets

With 12,500kms of camera perfect coastline and clean, clear air, Western Australia is the perfect place to be at sunset. Enjoy coffee or delicious seafood and other local produce at beachside cafes and restaurants throughout the metro area and beyond as you watch the sun slide beyond the horizon. Be amazed at the colours of the sunset as it changes through pink, vibrant orange to a deep purple glow.

Swan Valley Nestled between the Darling Range and the Swan Coastal plain, you feel as though you could be a world away from the city in this highly awarded wine growing region. But at only 20 minutes away, the Swan Valley makes a great base from which to explore Perth or to get away for the day.

Red Bull Air Race Take your vantage point along Perth’s foreshore to witness the world’s most exciting air race take place over central Perth waters in November. See Top Gun pilots from around the globe competing to navigate a challenging low-level obstacle course - the Formula 1 of the skies (2010).

Country Areas Places not to be missed include Swan Valley, Darling Range, John Forrest National Park, Mundaring, Yanchep National Park and the Avon Valley. Mundaring Weir is the start of C.Y.O’Connor’s ambitious Goldfields ‘Golden Pipeline’ Scheme; operating 550km for 100 years, it’s still the world’s largest movement of drinking water. All between 20 minutes and a couple of hours from the city centre and each offering differing vistas.

These ancient rocks are among the oldest in the world and are home to an extremely impressive variety of both flora and fauna. The unusual rocky peaks and brilliant displays of wildflowers of the National Park afford visitors some of the best scenery in Australia’s South West.

Margaret River Region - Bridgetown - Augusta Well away from the bustling town, yet close enough (16km) to enjoy its delights, Harmony Forest offers the only true forest accommodation experience in Margaret River. The smooth white trunks of thirty metre tall Karri trees rise through the dense understorey to towering leafy green canopies, home to many species of bird life including the elusive red-tailed black cockatoos. Completely shielding you from your neighbours is 100m of verdant understorey which shelters a myriad of small bird species. Magically this is the view from your twin spa – a spa filled with pure fresh natural water every time. Unlimited hot water makes for cosy winter spas especially with music from the CD player available on extension speakers in the spa room. Bathrobes, which are provided, are the preferred clothing for after spa relaxation.

Harmony Forest MARGARET RIVER

Harmony Forest cottages reflect their environment with soft floral motifs creating a soothing and tranquil ambience. Each cottage is equipped with almost everything necessary for your stay including a fully equipped kitchen and all cooking utensils and cutlery provided. A private gas barbecue offers al fresco cooking. Sun lounges on the cool green lawn invite you to simply turn up the silence and watch nature dance: natural stress relief in an unspoilt ecosystem.

north west

Drama unfolds travelling north. Landscapes become increasingly amazing, taking on hues of ochre red in contrast to pristine white beaches; the ocean becomes more tropical with untouched coral reefs, atolls and exotic flora and fauna. The ancient gorges and bizarre land formations rival any on earth, and handsome scenery is unsurpassed. The west boasts 12,500km of spectacular coastline, most of it is north from Perth and much with World Heritage protected status. The North West is a living adventure with towns few and far between, but full of character, as you venture into the remote outback. Allow us to help you discover the North West for yourself.

Pinnacles Desert

Kalbarri

The moonscape scenery is made by thousands of pillars rising up to 4m out of the stark desert landscape of yellow quartz sand. Located in the Nambung National Park, it is a favourite subject for photographers.

Wild Australian beauty is unsurpassed at Kalbarri National Park, which encompasses the lower reaches of the mighty Murchison River, as it winds its way through spectacular red gorges to the Indian Ocean. The Z Bend, The Loop and Hawks Head look-outs are easily accessible and each offer a superb panorama. Calm waters of the Murchison allow for a refreshing dip. Many spots along the Kalbarri coast afford breathtaking views. Precipitous sea cliffs in layers of multi-coloured sandstone loom over the crashing white foam.

New Norcia Complete with olive trees, it is a real piece of old Spain in the outback. Established as an Aboriginal mission by Benedictine monks in 1846, the settlement is still owned and operated by a community of monks. The Spanish style buildings are listed by the National Trust. The museum and art gallery houses priceless art collections, including paintings by 17th and 18th century masters and gifts from the Queen of Spain.

Wildflowers The North West is best known for the endless carpets of amazing everlastings, but is home to a huge variety of spectacular coastal and inland wildflowers. See everlastings, spider orchids, leschenaultia, fringe lilies, kangaroo paws and banksias. The further north the more profuse the display; wax flowers, starflowers, smokebushes, eucalypts and grevilleas. (northern season Jul - Sept).

Shark Bay The abundance of natural wonders, unique flora and unique fauna has caused the area to be gazetted as World Heritage. It is famous for many rare species and is home to around a tenth of the world’s dugong population. The first European to set foot on Australian soil was Dirk Hartog. The Island where this took place is named after him, and is located in Shark Bay.

Shell Beach Billions of tiny white ‘coquina bivalve’ sea shells form a 60km long beach. The deposits are many metres deep and go right out into the calm bay - it is easy to walk out to sea through the clear waters for many, many metres. Several buildings in Denham and on surrounding stations were built from blocks of the compacted shells.

Monkey Mia Numerous bottlenose dolphins decide to visit the humans at the beach here and are part of a pod of around 500 wild dolphins that live in the bay. In 1964 a lady from one of the near-by fishing camps befriended the dolphins, regularly feeding them. Generations of wild dolphins have enjoyed the regular human contact which has now become a part of their daily lives.

Hamelin Pool The massive occurrence of stromatolites - the world’s oldest organisms - has lead to the erection of an educational boardwalk at Hamelin Bay. Stromatolites are the result of primitive life forms that first existed on earth 3 1/2 million years ago. The dome shaped structures reach up to 60cm in height and are formed by single celled organisms called cyanobacteria. The process continues today.

Cape Range A contrasting experience from range to reef. Pass from high plateau and canyons to deep ocean within just a few kilometres. Walk through eucalypt woodlands or climb up deep rocky gorges, explore the white sand beaches and turquoise coral waters or just laze in the year round sunshine.Take a cruise through Yardie Creek Gorge. Unsealed roads and red dirt tracks make four wheel driving a fun part of this National Park experience.


Ningaloo Reef

Coral Bay

A virtually untouched 260km long barrier reef protecting shallow, brilliant white sandy lagoons of gin clear tropical waters all along its great length. Walk from pristine deserted beaches straight on to a dazzling coral reef. More than 500 species of tropical fish and 220 species of hard and soft corals make up this protected marine park. With the sea only up to your knees, allow the many coloured fish to swim and feed around your legs. From eighteen months to eighty years of age - enjoy the thrill of snorkelling amid the dazzling display of tropical species and colours of fish and coral in the shallows - ‘like swimming through the stars’. This is the closest point of Australia to the continental shelf - producing a prolific abundance of tropical marine life. Dolphins, dugongs, graceful manta rays and coral spawning can regularly be seen. Turtles nest on the beaches in summer. The waters beyond the reef are the migratory route of humpback whales. The area is best known for the ‘gentle giant’ whale sharks that gather near Tantabiddi in huge numbers to feed on plankton. It is regarded as the best place in the world to take a trip to swim with the world’s largest fish.

Coral Bay is the southern gateway to the warm, lively waters of world-famous Ningaloo Reef. A small settlement of a few houses, stores, restaurants and beachfront accommodation. Coral Bay is the place where the reef meets the beach and the wonders of Australia’s largest fringing coral reef are accessible within metres of the shore.

Exmouth This once US Navy town now provides easy access to Cape Range and the many spectacular beaches and coral lagoons, including pristine Turquoise Bay. Coral Bay, at the southern end of the reef, is an increasingly popular holiday destination and provides a great brief introduction to the Ningaloo Reef.

Mt. Augustus The world’s largest rock. Twice the size of Ayers Rock, it abruptly rises 2354ft above the surrounding plains, and at 1750 million years old, it has long been an outstanding landmark. It constantly changes colour from bright red at sunrise through shades of green, to hues of blue then through orange to gold at sunset.

The Pilbara Rugged, exciting country, it is enticing and often exceptionally beautiful. White gums form a stark contrast against the red earth. Words such as massive and enormous are not taken lightly here. The area is one of the oldest parts in the world, yet it is still not ‘opened up’. It’s a 4WD adventure wonderworld, where modern mining towns provide a comfortable base to explore the surrounding treasures.

Millstream An enchanting tropical oasis amongst the red dust of the Pilbara. Thousands of birds flock to this delightful spot, where ferns, lilies, palms and rushes grow in abundance. There are two long, deep, natural pools. The springs produce over 36 million litres of water a day, and provide the opportunity for swimming. The adjacent Chichester Ranges contain sediment-capped basalt ranges. It has rolling hills, hummocks of spinifex, white barked snappy gums on the uplands, and pale coolibahs along the water course.

Karijini The Hamersley Ranges stretch for more than 400km through the Pilbara, forming wild and magnificent panoramas. Spectacular gorges have been carved by the waters of the Fortescue and other rivers. Sheer walls of rock are layered in colours from red to green and blue to pink in the changing sunlight. The gorges are up to 100m deep, with the waterflow at their bases sometimes only one metre wide. Others have wide crystal-clear pools reflecting the blue skies. Lush green vegetation thrives and the cool gorges offer refuge from the brilliant sunshine. Within the huge Karijini National Park there are many well known gorges, including Dales Gorge, its strata in horizontal stripes of blue, mauve, red and brown and dating back 2000 million years.

All of the 120 dolphins here have names and your crew can introduce them to you.

kimberley It doesn’t get any more real than in the Kimberley. A vast region of incredible landscapes thrown up from ancient Devonian Reef; mountain ranges and colossal gorges created by mighty rivers; fantastic flora and fauna and vast Savannah lands. Unique formations seemingly defy reason or logic, with some boasting World Heritage protected status; and the warm tropical waters of the Kimberley coast form picture perfect beaches. A real pioneering spirit still pervades here, with cattle stations the size of small countries and remote townships providing lifelines to surrounding remote Aboriginal Communities and cattlemen. The Kimberley is a life-changing experience. Allow us to help you discover the Kimberley for yourself.

Broome

Cape Leveque

The balmy air is filled with the scent of frangipani. Vibrant colours of bougainvillea amid the unique Broome style buildings that nestle amongst the palms. The special blend of colonial Australian and Asian cultures has, through many generations, created a style and ambience that is particular to Broome. A romantic vision come true. Here, nothing is more important than the present, you can but slip into ‘Broome Time’.

An oasis of white sands, red earth and thick bush in the extreme Kimberley wilderness, Cape Leveque on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, richly rewards the traveller. Accessed only air or large 4WD, the Peninsula has fabulous coastal, cliff top and lighthouse views, bush tucker and wilderness tours of their lands with remote local Aboriginal people, secluded beaches, historical churches and settlements.

Cable Beach 22km of purest white swimming beach where Broome meets the Indian Ocean; palm trees, stunning colours and spectacular sunsets. Enjoy a sundowner at a beachside cafe or restaurant. The long, flat beach, punctuated with rock pools where sea creatures wait for the tide to take them back to the deep and where warm tropic waters wash away the cares of living in paradise.

Gantheaume Point Along a dirt track, beyond Riddell Beach with its millions of tiny sand crabs and excellent fishing is Gantheaume Point. Here, high above the ocean, fragile cliffs change colour, reflecting stark red against the Indian Ocean sunset. Ancient dinosaur footprints, 130 million years old, can be seen off the reef at exceptionally low tide. Also nearby is Anastasia’s Pool, lovingly carved in rock by the lighthouse keeper for his arthritic wife.

Derby Historic Derby is the western gateway to the Gibb River Road and ‘the gateway to the gorges’. Visit the Flying Doctor Base of the Kimberley. See the Boab Prison Tree; the 14m wide transit gaol used in the infamous 1890’s and nearby Myall’s Bore with the longest cattle trough in the southern hemisphere. See Circular Wharf: at low tide walk a jetty on huge stilts, high above the mud flats - spotting huge saltwater crocodiles - or if the massive 11m tides are in, be close to the rapid waters stirred up by Australia’s highest tides.

Geikie Gorge Towering gorge walls of an ancient limestone barrier reef carved by the might Fitzroy River. The permanent fresh water supports sawfish, stingrays, freshwater crocodiles and many other varieties of fish, birdlife and animals. The national park rangers operate a nature cruise.

Fitzroy Crossing

Windjana Gorge & Tunnel Creek

The old Crossing Hotel sits at the safest crossing for early settlers to wade the mighty Fitzroy River. Today, remotely situated between Broome to the west and Kununurra to the east, Fitzroy Crossing services million acre cattle stations, Aboriginal Communities and explorers of the rugged Kimberley outback and the attractions of Geikie Gorge, Tunnel Creek, Windjana Gorge and another full days drive away, the Bungle Bungles.

Windjana Gorge National Park features a 3.5km gorge formed by the Lennard River. Freshwater crocodiles can often be seen sunning themselves on the river banks in late afternoon. Tunnel Creek National Park features a creek which tunnels its way 750m through the Napier Range. Wade through the refreshingly cool waters by torch-light to the other entrance. Nearby Pigeon Cave was the hideout of Aboriginal freedom fighter, Jandamarra.


Gibb River Road

Kununurra

Gorge country is found along the rugged 667km long ‘bush track’ that connects the remote Kimberley cattle stations to Derby and Kununurra. It allows superb access to the virtually untouched natural assets of the awesome Kimberley wilderness. Some of the most spectacular scenery on earth, and so recently ‘discovered’ that it is yet to be made into national parks.

Kununurra, the man made oasis of the outback, is the springboard for the natural wonders of the East Kimberley; the Bungle Bungles and Purnululu National Park; the Argyle Diamond Mine; Lake Argyle - up to 18 times the size of Sydney Harbour; the Ord River Irrigation Scheme; Lake Kununurra and both the Keep River and the Mirima Valley National Parks. See the forest of boab trees, massive trees full of fruit bats, the “shooting skills” of the archer fish, the well named Jesus birds and visit the Zebra Rock Gallery; you may even spot a crocodile; all on the Ord River.

The road cuts through King Leopold Range, Phillips Range, Barnett Range, Gibb Range, Mosquito Hills, Pentecost Range and Cockburn Range. Wildlife concentrates around the densely vegetated waterholes, creeks and numerous gorges, including fresh water crocodiles, green tree frogs, green tree snakes, tortoise and archer fish. However you ‘do’ the Gibb River Road - it is an outback 4WD adventure never to be forgotten.

Buccaneer Archipelago North from Derby, the thousands of islands are truely spectacular. A cruise or scenic flight in this area will live forever in your memory. ‘Horizontal Waterfall’ experiences a 6m tidal difference between the narrow rocks of Walcott Inlet which creates a massive rush of water. Beautiful and remote Cockatoo Island has a rich history and a splendid resort atop a cliff top overlooking hundreds of other islands.

Halls Creek Historic Halls Creek, site of the State’s first big gold rush for a few years from 1885; see the pioneer cemetery and mineshafts. On the edge of the Great Sandy Desert and the closest airport to Purnululu (Bungle Bungle) National Park, it is now a service town for million acre cattle stations and Aboriginal communities. See Caroline Pool and Palm Springs oasis, the China Wall and 500 km to the south, the second biggest meteorite crater in the world at Wolf Creek Crater National Park.

Lake Argyle & Ord River Australia’s only inland sea and largest man-made reservoir; storing water up to eighteen times greater than Sydney Harbour, Argyle Dam is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme, started in 1958. “Islands” in the sea were once the tops of ancient mountains of the historic Argyle Station that was flooded to create Lake Argyle. The alluvial soils of the once arid region now grows melons, sugar, bananas, mangoes, and supports vast flora and fauna.

Bungle Bungles The massif is located within the Purnululu National Park and was created at the same time as most of the Kimberley scenery, around 350 million years ago. A scenic flight is the best way to gain a perspective of its massive size. The venture in by 4WD is well rewarded with gorges and caverns filled with flora and fauna unique to this part of the world. Echinda Chasm, Mini Palms, Frog Hole and Cathedral Gorge are enchanting.

Mitchell Falls & Plateau Truely one of the worlds last frontiers.

Kimberley The IBIS Aerial Highway links a host of magnificent scenic attractions throughout the Kimberley, to bring you intimately close to nature. The State Government has appointed DISCOVER WEST HOLIDAYS to develop and market tours under the IBIS Aerial Highway brand world-wide. This significant State Government initiative has involved the construction of a network of air strips in remote areas of outstanding interest. DISCOVER WEST has many tours that connect local safaris and accommodation in those remote areas with access by light aircraft. These tours carry the "IBIS" logo.

Cape Bougainville

There are few sealed roads in the area, and fewer people per square kilometre than just about anywhere on earth. The Kimberley's scenic attractions are separated by vast distances - the area's splendid isolation is one of its great drawcards. The Kimberley is unlike any where else on earth.

Admiralty Gulf Kalumburu

The IBIS Aerial Highway enables you to experience more of the Kimberley in less time; as well as affording the opportunity to view the Kimberley's grandeur from the air and truly appreciate its scale.

Kimberley Cruising True North Wilderness Cruise

AIr SAFArI

LIVe ABOArD

6 & 13 NIGHT LUXURY LIVE-ABOARD CRUISES

INCLUDeS  Wilderness Cruise with professional crew  13 nights live-aboard accommodation  All meals  Scenic helicopter & light airport transfers (6 night option only)  Use of ships’ 6 tender vessels, fishing gear is provided Adventure Cruising The exquisite True North, endowed with superb décor and a complement of 20 professional Australian crew members ready to pamper 36 special passengers (maximum number).

Kimberley cruises are conducted in the tropical “winter months” between March and September when you can expect warm days, mild nights and little chance of rain. The activities are almost exclusively confined to calm water and protected anchorages. A relatively low-moderate level of exertion is required and crew members are always on hand to assist. Kimberley Wilderness Cruises A typical day ... might involve exploring an unknown estuary, trying to land the evening meal, or swimming in rock pools beneath towering cascades. See the Horizontal Waterfalls and explore the Sale River. Take the opportunity perhaps to see ancient aboriginal cave paintings - but who was responsible for the very different, recently discovered ‘Bradshaw figures’ that precede traditional paintings by thousands of years? The region is steeped in curious stories of legendary human endeavor - of shipwreck, survival and tragedy. Experience the power of the largest tidal range in the world. Like everything in the Kimberley the contrasts are extreme.

The original True North pioneered luxury live-aboard cruising in the gin clear waters of the remote Kimberley. Today, the True North is the only Kimberley cruise ship sailing with her own helicopter docked into its heli-pad, thus continuing the pioneering tradition of ultimate excellence! Transporting guests in air-conditioned comfort, the ship’s helicopter provides exquisite opportunities to witness the grandeur of the Kimberley; to fish remote billabongs that have never been fished; or to simply discover the splendour of your very own wilderness! Perhaps even to enjoy a heli-picnic where no man has walked before. Holiday experiences designed for the most discerning adventurer!

Rowley Shoals are home to over 600 species of fish and two thirds of Australia’s tropical species are found here. Maori wrasse, barracuda, coral trout, angelfish, morays and turtles are in abundance. The cave and night dives add an extraordinary dimension to an already surreal coralscape. With the most advanced diving systems available on-board the True North, passengers are offered fast air refills on demand, and with guided dives conducted by on-board dive masters and instructors you will experience the finest coral atoll dive destination in the world. Includes cylinders, weight belts and unlimited airfills, bring your own personal dive equipment. Non divers welcome on all cruises - snorkel or take advantage of on-board instruction.
