Itinerary:

Fly over the spectacular pindan cliffs and turquoise waters of Roebuck Bay as we then track over the vast mangroves and wetlands of Roebuck Plains. Flying over the Fitzroy River and approach the Napier Range, mostly made from heavily eroded limestone, or karst, with the ridges composed of an ancient Devonian reef system. As you approach Windjana Gorge, enjoy a scenic flight from above before landing at the remote Windjana airstrip. On arrival, meet your guide for the day and jump onboard your air-conditioned 4WD bus. Enjoy a walking tour through Windjana Gorge and learn about the spiritual significance of the gorge and closely observe freshwater crocodiles in their natural habitat. After lunch served beneath the shady bloodwood trees, explore the 750m long Tunnel Creek that runs beneath the 350-million year old Devonian Reef system. Whilst in the tunnel, you will negotiate pools of water (up to knee-deep), flashlights will be provided. Learn about the Banuba people and hear the story of Jandamarra the Aborginal Warrior who hid out in the tunnel and led the Banuba resistance against the opression of the local Aboriginal people during the late 1800's. Visit the historic ruins of Lillimooloora Police Station en-route back to the airstrip for your afternoon sunset flight back to Broome.
