Kimberley Outback Adventure Trek

Trek Details

The Kimberley Outback Experience is an eight day wilderness adventure in the magnificent Kimberley Region of north-west Australia involving canoeing, trekking, helicopter transfers, barramundi fishing, abseiling, horseback and survival.

It is a customised specific program we have designed, developed and improved upon continuously since first implemented in 2002/3.

An immense amount of time and effort went into the itinerary over the years to ensure our clients maximise their time in this wonderful area of Australia.

This is an itinerary we at EE are proud of due to its content, multitude of experiences and magnificent landscapes.

Starting out of El Questro station, a one million acre working cattle station, we commence the adventure with a walk to the Pentecost River system, rendezvousing with our canoes for a two day paddle. The days are then spent walking through breathtaking gorges, before an exhilarating helicopter ride takes you to a remote maze of gorges, which prior to our first trip the Kimberley had never been completed by a non-indigenous trekking party.

The adventure culminates with an exhilarating abseil from the top of the spectacular Emma Gorge and a celebratory team dinner.
