The Kimberley & The Pilbara (10 days)
The Kimberley and The Pilbara. Names that evoke images of red rocks, blue skies and pioneering spirits.
Travelling in style in our Beechcraft King Air, with comfortable leather seats, room to stretch out, no more than nine fellow travellers, a window for each passenger, yet still with the ability to land on small airstrips, you’ll visit some incredible spots off the beaten track.
Stay in fabulous resorts in unbelievable settings – Kings Canyon, Purnululu National Park, the Kimberley coast, Ningaloo Reef and Karijini National Park. You may be a long way from the city, but the bush luxury offered has its own particular charm and comfort to help make this a holiday to remember.

Itinerary: The Kimberley & The Pilbara (10 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Kings Canyon (L,D)
Depart Moorabbin Airport at 7.30am. Fly over South Australia and into the Northern Territory. Have a quick lunch in Alice Springs while your pilot refuels, then fly on to Kings Creek Station.
A short road journey brings you to Kings Canyon Resort and your glamping tent. Each of the six premium canvas tents, designed to blend in with the beautiful Northern Territory landscape, features quality linen, lounge area, dining space, outdoor deck with seating, air-conditioning and ensuite.
You’ll know you’ve reached the outback when you soak up the quiet of the desert on your deck before a wonderful Karrke Aboriginal Cultural Experience tour.
Travel out to a local indigenous community for an immersion experience with a journey through their ancient culture and connectedness to the land via their weapons, musical instruments, bush tucker and medicines and the evolution and meaning of their language.
Dine out under the clear desert sky with Under a Desert Moon dining experience. Begin with canapés and a glass of sparkling at the resort, then head out to a hidden location where tables are set under a canopy of stars in the great Southern sky. An open fire lights a five course dinner created from seasonal, locally sourced produce with paired wines.
Overnight: Kings Canyon Resort, glamping tent
Absolutely fabulous experience. A private tour like this is the only way to see the outback properly. Six of us on the tour, with plenty of room, and the windows of the plane were so large we didn't miss anything. Can't recommend Kirkhope highly enough.
