Day 3: Napier Range, Tunnel Creek, Windjana Gorge, Fitzroy Crossing
In the morning, you’ll explore the Napier Range. Being so far inland, many are surprised to learn that it was once a coral reef, but today you can see the fossils amongst the gorges and landcape. Visit Windjana Gorge where the limestone cliffs tower over you in watercolours and freshwater crocodiles laze along the river bank. Next stop in Tunnel Creek, where you’ll wade through the water, spotting bats until you reach the tropical oasis at the end. End at Fitzroy Crossing, at the edge of the Fitzroy River.
Day 4: Mimbi Caves, Bungle Bungle Range
In the morning, head to the Mimbi Caves where you’ll learn about the Indiginous cultural significance of the caves, while seeing signs of the reef that once existed here. In the afternoon, reach Mabel Downs Station by Purnululu National Park, where you’ll be staying for the next two nights.

Walk along the dried pebbled riverbed surrounded by palms, then through a narrow gorge to the chasm.
Day 6: Halls Creek
Wave goodbye to Purnululu and head to the historic outback town, Halls Creek. The town is the site of Western Australia’s first gold discovery in 1887 and you’ll be able to explore some of the sites remaining from the gold rush era.
