WHAT’S THIS ADVENTURE ABOUT?
Tour 1 is fully booked, so we have added a second great Kimberley adventure. We are offering you one of the greatest photographic adventures in Australia! The Kimberley is a wild region of Australia that offers incredible landscapes, nature and very unique creative photography and experiences. This is a special adventure! We include all accommodation, the best photo guides and the chance to explore a special part of Australia. Our experience will help you to maximise this world class region.
We have three bases for this exciting tour – El Questro Station, Home Valley Station and Purnululu – all three offer comfortable accommodation. From safari style rooms with a normal bed and en-suite, to traditional hotel rooms. This mix offers a more authentic outback experience and is perfect for your photographic interests.
Land transport for this event is included. We base transport on our tried and true system of vehicle pooling and self driving, using 4WD hire vehicles booked by us as a travel operator. You do not need to drive if you do not want to. The key reason for self drive, is to allow us to start early and finish late for the best light. This flexibility also offers you a better price and the chance to meet new friends.
A great land package! All your accommodation, meals and services as per itinerary, share 4WD. You simply need to organise flights and to get yourself to the start of the tour and for the departure. Julia is happy to help you.
