After just under 4 weeks exploring Broome, Cape Leveque and the Gibb River road, we pressed on to Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungles.
If you want a guide that covers literally everything you’d want to know about the Kimberley, you’ll find it here – the ultimate guide to the Kimberley.

Well worth the drive in

Which was a huge highlight of our trip

After 5 weeks, it was a bit of a shock to head back to Perth. Nonetheless, that’s life, and we had a holiday that was so jammed full of amazing experiences. You can’t put a price on a holiday like that, and we now have memories that will last forever.
