118 reviews
This Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek 4WD tour from Broome explores two of the Kimberley region’s most popular attractions. After morning tea at a roadhouse along the Fitzroy River, see the historical Boab Prison Tree in Derby, then traverse the 4x4 Gibb River Road to Windjana Gorge National Park. Search for freshwater crocodiles and look for fossils in the ancient reef, part of the Napier Range. After a picnic lunch, follow your guide on foot through an underground labyrinth at Tunnel Creek, with the option to swim in a refreshing watering hole.

You visit a culturally significant Aboriginal site with a guide who explains the meaning and evolution of some rock engravings done along centuries (it includes an explanation of which of the engravings are authentic and which of them are new versions done by disrespectful and surely stupid racist visitors). The site is fantastic and it is a shame that it had to be closed to the public due to the behaviour of certain people who decided that they could add their narcissistic engraving art to the rocks of this sacred place. Said that, I think the price for visiting it is an absolute scam (and thus my low review). You pay 85AUD per person to: - go in a 4WD to the site (it is an about 20 minutes drive) - walk the 10 minutes distance to the Sacred Canyon with the guide, who explains it in a slightly detached way (I had the feeling he was doing it just for the money and rushing a little bit) - come back. Honestly, I paying 85AUD per person for this makes me feel scammed. I think this is the most unreasonable price for a visited tour I have ever paid. We were a group of 10, which means they made around 850AUD in just one hour, with no effort whatsoever. The worse thing is the person in the reception sold it to us as a 3 hour cultural walk. I think there are more affordable things to do in Wilpena Pound and the Flinders Ranges (which is an amazing place).

Recently took the Sacred Canyon tour whilst staying in Wilpena Pound. Whilst a tad pricey at $250 for 2 adults and 2 children, we found the experience to be both entertaining and educational. Mick, our guide was brilliant with my two young children and included them throughout the tour. He has a very proud heritage and connection to the land which shows in his delivery. The tour starts at the visitor information centre, going by bus to the site. The road can get a bit bumpy however the bus is made for it. Once there we were given an introduction to the land and shown some basic symbols to look out for. As we progressed into the canyon, Mick explained and demonstrated the ways of his ancestors, showing how they communicated and told others of what was available to hunt and where to seek shelter. It was disappointing to see that some of this historical work had been subject to vandalism. So all in all, recommended but a bit pricey.

A very informative tour host by Mick. The Sacred Canyon was an eye opener and well worth the money. If considering, don’t hesitate doing this tour. Theropod much history that the average AUS doesn’t know about this area.

Very calming, beautiful place. The tour guide was absolutely awsome. The family loved the stories. We will definitely do it again in the future.

$85 per person now to visit, enough said. Firmly padlocked off to public. Tours only, money grabbing
