What We Love...

With itineraries personally designed, tried and tested by our in-house travel experts, you can expect the very best from every Tour Created by LE.

“Sometimes, the most beautiful adventures are right under our noses – often overlooked by countries further away and perceived more ‘exotic’,” says Sonia Pilovska, Head of Tours at Luxury Escapes. “Western Australia’s The Kimberley is one of those magical parts of the country that proves that often, uncovering the beauty of our own backyard can exceed our expectations in every way. It’s a world where our rich Indigenous heritage and local people are intertwined with one of the most majestic landscapes, bursting with magical canyons and rugged national parks. It’s an authentic outback experience that is quintessentially Australian; an experience that should not be missed.”

The Scenery - Explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park and Bungle Bungle Ranges

Explore the World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park with local expert guides. Covering almost 240,00 hectares of wilderness, the park is a microcosm of abundant flora and fauna and boasts a sharply incised landscape of incredible rock formations.

A film director’s location dream, Bungle Bungle’s bizarrely shaped sandstone monoliths are blockbuster stars in their own right (cue Baz Luhrmann’s 'Australia'). Have your cameras ready as you visit the famed black and orange beehive striped domes, unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Rising 578 metres above sea level, the Bungle Bungle Range is one of the most extensive and impressive outcroppings of sandstone tower (or cone) karst terrain in the world.

Take a captivating hike to Echidna Chasm, a spectacular natural gorge characterised by striking colour variations, depending on the angle of the sun. Hike along The Escarpment trail that skirts the edge of the Bungle Bungle massif.

Enjoy a guided walk to Cathedral Gorge, a spacious cavern whose dramatic landscape was used in the 1920s as a natural amphitheatre boasting astounding acoustics. The site is a popular picnic spot.

Meet a local indigenous community (when available) - a fantastic way to learn more about the local history and cultural significance of this amazing part of the world.
