From Purnululu get onto the famous Gibb River Road for the next 4 days as you travel the full length of the Gibb and camp at private wilderness camps, swim in amazing creeks and rivers, explore gorges, jump off waterfalls and see secret aboriginal art galleries containing examples of both Wadjina and Bradshaw art. Highlights include Tunnel Creek, Windjana, Bell, Manning, Emma and Barnet River Gorges, the Pentecost River & El Questro Station.

There will also be plenty of time for swanning around the waterhole and waterfall of Edith Falls. Finally, make it to your exclusive bush camp under the stars. Day 2: Victoria River to Lake ArgyleToday head for Lake Argyle where you can jump on a boat and camp on an island, an activity that is regularly voted as a highlight of the trip. Wake up with the sun on the private island. Day 3: Lake Argyle to Purnululu National Park/Bungle BunglesFrom your amazing camp, drive a short distance to Kununurra to replenish supplies. From here, push onto Purnululu National Park, ideally arriving in time for sunset.
