Piccaninny Gorge

Broome & The Kimberley

This 30km return trek (two to three days) from the southern car park to a remote and pristine gorge is best suited for experienced hikers. There are plenty of opportunities for further exploration in the upper gorge. Take plenty of water and go early in the season. You must register at the visitor centre first.
