EXPERIENCE THE KIMBERLEY AS AN ADVENTURER, NOT A TOURIST

Kingfisher Tours embraces the adventure of the Kimberley region with our luxurious and exciting tour experiences from the sub-Saharan landscapes of the Bungle Bungle Range to the sub-tropical oases found between grand gorges in hues of red and orange, right out to the exquisite turquoise waters of the Northern Kimberley coast. With Kingfisher Tours, you have the opportunity to experience the uncommon beauty of these landscapes by Air, 4WD and on foot.

Kingfisher Tours have been operating for 9 years in the Kimberley and we have created unique products that allow our guests to submerge themselves in the landscape, soaking in the ancient knowledge of the region with our knowledgeable guides who share the rich and diverse history of the Kimberley Region; the stories of the land and the Dreamtime are lessons that are not forgotten.

Our ground tours boast local produce and some bush tucker for lunches, or our fresh Mango jams and chutneys from the local farms. Your guides will also point out local bush tucker and medicinal flora in the area. For those of our guests indulging in our overnight packages, your accommodation will be in APT’s Wilderness Lodges in Purnululu and the Mitchell Falls. Being Kimberley locals, we have great relationships with local accommodation providers across the Kimberley and are always happy to organise bespoke journeys for our guests.

Kingfisher tours are very conscious of our pristine wilderness that we live and tour in. As such we have introduced several initiatives to minimise the single-use plastic in the business and continue to encourage other tour operators, in particular our partners to do the same. We also aim to employ local staff from Custodian for Country tour guides to our reservation team, so our guests will be received by a local Kimberley resident.

Our guests always have a window seat when flying so as not to miss any elements of the immersive landscape and our 4WD’s on the ground are air-conditioned Toyota Prado’s.

We look forwarding to welcoming you on board an enriching Kimberley experience with us!
