Living in Perth, we definitely have no right to complain about the Winter but as the cooler months really start kicking in, many of us start dreaming of chasing the sun and what better time to chase it than right now.
If you’re used to jumping on a plane for a Bali break or maybe you’ve even been lucky enough to get away for a European summer, then I’m here to tell you not to fret. You may not have yet experienced the incredible sights in our own backyard but get ready to have your mind blown and best of all, this year, with the borders closed we have it all to ourselves.
The Kimberley region is home to some of the most iconic and breathtaking Western Australian sights spoken about. There’s Lake Argyle, The Ord River, numerous stunning Gorges and secret waterfalls just to mention a few. Not sure where to start? Kingfisher Tours will have you covered.
Kingfisher Tours is a small family run business specialising in showcasing the most extraordinarily iconic Kimberley locations including Kununurra, Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungle Range), Punamii- Uunpu (Mitchell Falls), and the Kalumburu Coast.
They boast the ‘dream team’ of tour guides using only local staff and Aboriginal guides that have a long history with the Kimberley.
What can you do and see with Kingfisher Tours:
