One week tonight before we leave on our Kimberley Trip, We will be taking the Tanami Rd from Alice, taking in Wolfe Creek Crater, Bungles & Lake Argyle, Maybe a flight over them before heading on to El Questro & then a couple of weeks on the Gibb River Rd , stopping off at various camps along the way including the Mitchell Plateau & Falls. A few more of the Gorges on the way out on to Derby & Broome.
Heart says to leave now................ but the head says one more week of work yet!
Well we have to pay for these trips somehow.

Hi Paul

When you get to Kunnunurra you have to take the flight over lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungles we did it this time last year it was fantastic well worth the money you should try and book it now before you go or you may miss out, also there are private camp sites at El Questro well worth staying for a few days and if you get a site next to the river you fish for that elusive Barramundi, but the one place you have to visit is Cape Leveque again book ahead or you might be dissapointed and not get to stay because believe me the rough track out there is well worth it i will go as far as to say it was paradise and we can not wait to go back but next time it will be for at least a week not two days like before. Anyway have a good time and safe travels.

Martin and Samantha

Hi Martin & Samantha,
Thanks for you reply. We are planning to do a flight over the Bungles & lake Argyle with a mob called Slingair. They Sound good from their brochure.
Your info will be a great help, Its just what we were after. The kind of personal experiences that you don't know about untill you get there.
It will give us a head start.

Thanks again,

Hi
A chopper ride over the bungles is breathtaking, and beats a fixed-wing flight hands-down. You can hire a ride from the heliport at the Bungles. This means that within a couple of minutes, you're actually over the bungles, and the whole 1/2 hr is sightseeing, not travelling. Not sure of the cost these days, did mine back in the mid-90's and it cost about $150ea for 1/2 hr. Worth every penny.
cheers,
Gerry
