    What to Expect
    Start your Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek 4WD tour with early morning pickup from your hotel. Departing Broome for the Kimberley, hear informative commentary from your guide on the geography of the region.

    You'll stop at the Willare Roadhouse for morning tea beside the Fitzroy River, then continue on to the Boab Prison Tree, rumored to have been used in the 1890s to imprison indigenous Australians en route to nearby Derby for sentencing.

    After a look, continue along the Gibb River Road, a former cattle route accessible by 4WD vehicles. You'll arrive at Windjana Gorge, an ancient reef oasis of the Napier Range, made of soaring limestone walls rising more than 300 feet (90 meters). Search for fossils of shells and tiny marine creatures as your guide points out any wildlife, including birds and freshwater crocodiles that stealthily inhabit the Lennard River.

    After a picnic lunch, depart Windjana Gorge for Tunnel Creek in the afternoon. Disembark your vehicle for a guided walking tour of subterranean tunnels that form an underground labyrinth beneath the Napier Range. Your guide reveals the history of white settlement in the Kimberley region and shares the legendary tale of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal tracker who led an insurrection against colonizing pastoralists and hid out in the gorge in the late 19th century.

    Reward your walk with a refreshing dip in a swimming hole before a last stop at the ruins of Lillimooloora Station to view the sunset. Your 15-hour day trip includes afternoon tea and an optional dinner (own expense), before arriving back in Broome at night.

    I went on a day trip to the Windjana Gorge. It was a long day as we have to drive 4-5 hours to the site each way but our guide Oli did a great job, telling us stories about the aboriginal people who lived in the area and the sad stories about early colonisation in the Kimberley.

    Great review, thank you ChristopheD1391. It sure is a long day but worth it for a glimpse into the Kimberley gorge country. Hopefully you can return one day for a longer adventure.

    Thank you for your review Des H. The diesel incident was regrettable - human error and one of the KWE team has a little egg on his face! - but we are so pleased we were able to rectify the situation so quickly and make amends, while still delivering a fantastic day out.

    We experienced this tour yesterday and by far has been one of the best tours so far we have had in Broome. The tour went for roughly 15 hours and within that time we learnt so much about the aboriginal culture. Our tour guide Jodie was so passionate in the way she explained
