There’s an X-factor about The Kimberley that defies explanation. Perhaps it has something to do with the Aboriginal history said to date back 50,000 years, or maybe it’s the remarkable landscape that stops your heart at every turn of the road. Whatever it is, visiting this country with Wundargoodie Aboriginal Safaris is taking the road less travelled.

Far from the usual tourist haunts, the 4WD attacks dusty tracks north from Broome to King Edward River and the amazing Mitchell Plateau, through the Kurrunbaru Aboriginal community where stories of the Dreaming explode with almost visual intensity around the evening campfire, and powers into the rarely seen King George Falls where the mystical Python Pool and its Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) rock art is guaranteed to astound.

Local Aboriginals Colin and Maria Morgan present an enlightened journey into the most inaccessible and spiritual pockets of the northern Kimberley, where each person is encouraged to connect with the heart and culture of this ancient land and its people.

Brag Factor // Walk alongside footprints dating back 7000 years and come away with a deep spiritual connection to The Kimberley and its people.
