[K4-M1] Discover Mitchell Falls (2 days, 1 night at MF Wilderness Lodge)
Kimberley Wilderness Adventure and Luxury – An intimate, unhurried and complete coastal adventure over 2 full days.
0630 Kingfisher will collect you from your local accommodation
0700 After an extensive pre-flight briefing of the journey ahead, you will depart Kununurra Airport for a 1.5hr private aircraft flight to Mitchell Plateau. Enroute you will view the Ord River Diversion Dam and irrigated farmlands, and the spectacular Cockburn Ranges. Your journey continues across the vast expanse of the rarely visited Central Kimberley.
0830 We arrive at the natural bauxite rich airfield at Mitchell Plateau and are greeted by your Kimberley Wilderness Adventure hosts and guide, before heading out by 4WD and guided walk to the majestic Mitchell Falls.
Relax at the Falls and enjoy a picnic lunch before boarding a helicopter for your flight back to the ranger station, and return to the Lodge by 4WD. Take the opportunity to explore and enjoy the unique flora of your campsite in the dappled afternoon sunlight. After dinner, enjoy the quiet and convivial atmosphere of this very isolated retreat, before retiring to your very comfortable tented accommodation.
Awakened by songbirds in the crisp clean air, enjoy an unhurried breakfast, before transfer to Mitchell Plateau airfield.
0900 Depart Mitchell Plateau and re-join Kingfisher’s Wandjina Explorer Tour flight to the coast and to your next stop. Enroute you will view Port Warrender and the Kimberley Coastal Camp, the rich pearl farms of Vansittart Bay, the WWII Truscott airbase, and miles of exotic and pristine coastline.
1000 Arrive at the remote settlement of Kalumburu for a tour
of the Mission and the Community, including the Art Centre and the historic WWII aircraft graveyard. A picnic brunch is served on the Mission lawns.
1230 Depart Kalumburu for the remote Timor Sea coast, overflying Faraway Bay, King George Falls, Berkeley River, and the mighty Cambridge Gulf. At the mouth of the Ord River we track east following its meandering path and tidal floodplains where saltwater crocodiles are often seen soaking in the midday sun. You will pass by House Roof Hill, the very recognizable backdrop to Baz Luhman’s “Australia” movie. The Ord River Irrigation Area and its expanding farmlands will then be revealed as we set course for the green and vibrant townsite of Kununurra.
1400 Arrive at Kununurra and transfer to accommodation.
