East Kimberley 6 Day Photography Tour

Bungle Bungles | Ord River | El Questro

Kununurra | Western Australia

26th July 2020

This is a fully accommodated 6 day photography experience includes eco wilderness lodges and a private river lodge, world heritage areas, national parks, wildlife reserves and wetlands.

Join us in Kununurra and travel by 4WD to outback locations. 

Visit El Questro Wilderness Park and soak in a Kimberley hot spring, visit nature reserves and wetlands and walk in the Bungle Bungle world heritage park.

Photograph the domes of the Bungle Bungles under the Milky Way and be part of our Ord River wildlife photography cruise in search of crocodiles and birdlife.

Two nights in Purnululu World Heritage area photographing the amazing Kimberley landscapes and the Bungle Bungle Range.  On the first day we arrive in time to photograph the rich red escarpment of the Bungle Bungle Range as it lights up at sunset.

For the next two nights we make ourselves comfortable at our private wilderness lodge only minutes from the best photographic locations.   We explore Piccaninny Creek and the stunning Cathedral Gorge. Whatever you wish to photograph we can cater for.  Sunrise, sunset, blue hour and Astro photography sessions are all available. We have the bonus of great bird photography back at our safari camp. 

On day three we explore the northern section of the massif and Echidna Chasm. This gorge is a spectacular long, narrow chasm. It has striking colour variations, depending on the angle of the sun beaming into the chasm, with Livistonia palms waving from the 200 m high ridges above.

In the afternoon light we leave the Bungle Bungles and make our way north to the Ord River where we will spend the night in a private lodge.   Along the way we will capture some sunset Boab Tree shots.

The following morning it’s time to go out on the Ord River in purpose-built dinghies photographing the tropical river-life.  We capture abundant birdlife in its native habitat and it’s one of the few places in Australia where you can photograph freshwater and saltwater crocodiles’ side by side.

From there there is a great hide at Marglu Billabong in Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve, a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention, visit Wyndham the oldest town in WA and/or organise an optional helicopter flight over the amazing Cambridge Gulf tidal flats.   It is one of the best places in Australia to get this type of images. 

Late arvo we drive the famous Gibb River Road and drive to El Questro Wilderness Park. 

At El Questro Wilderness Park we visit the series of thermal pools that make up Zebedee Springs. We can laze our time away soaking up the beautiful views and relaxing warm waters surrounded by palm trees. If you can be bothered reaching for the camera we have landscape, macro and bird photography options here.

This afternoon we can join a scenic cruise along the stunning Chamberlain Gorge or the optional Explosion gorge & Branco’s Lookout sunset tour.  Overnight again at El Questro Wilderness Park.

On our last day we visit Emma Gorge.  An hour picturesque walk over rocky terrain rewards you with a cool oasis and a 65 metre droplet waterfall, surrounded by cliffs adorned with greenery.  Refresh and relax by the waterholes shady edge or swim to the waterfall in the deep pool of bracing, fresh water.

In the afternoon we return to Kununurra and have our farewell dinner.
