The Kimberley coastline is known as one of the least accessible, yet most desirable destinations in Australia. Perhaps the world. There are parts of the Kimberley that can only be reached by boat, tender, or helicopter.
And this unforgettable private helicopter and hiking safari will ensure you see more of the stunning East Kimberley than possible by car, boat or on foot.
Heli-hiking pushes remote luxury to new heights. And on the Crooked Compass tour, you’ll soar over breathtaking sunburnt ranges, hike through gorges to swim in secret waterfalls, and discover the oldest Indigenous rock art on earth.
It could well be the ultimate explorer’s luxury adventure by air and foot.
You’ll start your journey on a private plane flight to Bullo River Station. Here you can embrace life on this remote outback cattle station and learn about their commitment to Australian-first conservation projects.
Legendary outback hospitality and authentic experiences abound, including a scenic sunrise helicopter flight, a spectacular night sleeping under the stars, and Aboriginal rock art sites hidden in the station’s rugged red cliffs.
Next, you’ll travel by helicopter to Kununurra, flying low across the border to see Mirima National Park’s Hidden Valley, best known as the ‘Mini Bungle Bungle’, and Lake Kununurra to view the ‘Sleeping Buddha’ rock formation.
You’ll get a bird’s eye view of the World Heritage listed, Bungle Bungle Range – a 35-million-year-old marvel situated in Purnululu National Park. You’ll visit Piccaninny Gorge for a hike with a local guide who will share stories of the area’s significance to the Aboriginal people.
Next, soar above the famous orange and black striped sandstone domes of Cathedral Gorge on your return helicopter flight. Spend the night at the Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge to enjoy a chef-prepared dinner and one of the best stargazing spots in Australia.
Your next flight takes you to El Questro Station. Cool off at Miri Miri Falls, hidden in a remote corner of El Questro Wilderness Park. Visit the ancient cave formations and unique terrain in a guided trekking tour of the Lost City.
The nine-day itinerary is $15,250* per person and can be organised for private departures, or join a small group tour departing 23 July and 12 August, 2022 (minimum four, maximum eight people) and is recommended for the fit and adventurous.
