Kimberley - Western Australia
2 weeks in the far Kimberley
16 to 29 June 2024
8 to 21 June 2025
14-Day Exploration of the Drysdale River in the Solea Falls area.
Drysdale River National Park is one of the least accessible national parks in Australia. There are no public roads, no airstrips and no tracks so it is a really appealing environment for the Notraces philosophy. The park is located in the North West corner of the remote West Kimberley. The Drysdale River flows through a pristine landscape of untouched landscape, this is the kingdom of nature. The Park showcases vast tracts of Kimberley wilderness, and features open woodland, gorges, cliffs, waterfalls and the creeks of the Drysdale River.
Hidden in space and the past are the hypnotic Gwion Gwion figures, an ancient Aboriginal painting style describing a forgotten time of dancing and ceremonies.
We will walk along the Drysdale River, exploring some wet season side creeks, swimming as much as possible, fishing sometimes and camping in dream sites.
We will then meet our sea plane for our return journey to Kununurra.
