Venture into the Kimberley wilderness with Black Tracks to explore the richness in country, culture and history. From the scenic Gibb River Rd, we drive into an isolated part of the West Kimberley, where hidden amongst some of the most spectacular gorges and escarpment we will explore the ancient rock art that lines natural mazes and traditional campsites. Along the way we gain insight into the rugged and remote landscape while learning about its cultural and historical significance.

 

The art in this area is known as Bradshaw's or the Gwion Gwion, as it is known locally; and their younger relative, the Wandjina. For more information on art in the region, please see Kimberley Rock Art.

 

A typical day includes a combination of 4WDing and walking in remote countryside, swimming in rockholes and waterfalls and learning the ancient history and culture of the places we discover each day. 

 

Customised and flexible arrangements can be made to suit private group needs and different levels of activity.

 

Travel is in 4WDs and accommodation is ‘camping in comfort and style’. Good food and good company are a definite as we gather around the fire at night to watch the magnificent sun set over this remote and ageless country. 

 

For more information on camping and what to bring and what is provided. Please see What to Bring.
