The King George River has carved a gorge through towering weathered sandstone cliffs. Travel up the gorge and finally see the King George Falls. This magnificent falls, plunging 80 metres, is the highest waterfall in Western Australia. Visit and explore secluded Tranquil Bay.
Walk across the salt flats to view the wreckage of a US Air Force DC3 that crash landed on the beach during WWII. Visit Jar Island and discover the island’s stunning rock art. With the Guest lecturers, see fine examples of the Kimberley’s mysterious Bradshaw rock paintings, some 20,000 years old.
Anchor in Winyalkin Bay, and go ashore in the Xplorer to explore the maze of sandstone caves known as Hathaway’s Hideaway. Consider an optional scenic helicopter flight over the Mitchell Plateau for close up views of the majestic Mitchell Falls (additional costs apply).
Visit fine examples of both Wandjina and Bradshaw rock art at Bigge Island, and hear about the ancient myths that inspired them. Explore Careening Bay, where Phillip Parker King repaired the HMC Mermaid in 1820, memorialised in the remarkable boab tree carved by his crew.
Meander through the almost 1,000 islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago, and visit Talbot Bay. Experience what David Attenborough names as “one of the greatest natural wonders in the world”, the Horizontal Falls. Ride the power of the tide as it rushes through the narrow cliff openings. Explore the stunning white sand of Silica Beach.
Visiting the Lacepede Islands is dependant on weather and tides. This series of low islands consist of coarse sand and coral rubble lying atop a platform reef, and supports up to 18,000 breeding pairs of Brown Boobies and Roseate Terns. Explore the island’s lagoon, and observe the myriad other creatures often seen here, such as the frigate birds, egrets, and the nesting areas of the Green Turtle.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
