Amazing Flora and Fauna

 

Australia’s North West is home to an amazing array of mammals, from wallabies, possums, dingoes, euros, flying foxes and quolls to nocturnal species like sugar gliders and the endangered bilby and bandicoot.

Many species of small carnivorous marsupials also exist here, including dunnarts and the pebble mound mouse. Fortunately, many of these species have been saved from extinction because the introduced European fox cannot live in the warm northern climate.

We grew together as a group and formed friendships.  We learned about the aboriginal dreamtime, the rainbows and sunsets.

Amanda S

A wonderful exciting adventure, The scenery was truly amazing. our guide was informative ,caring and very knowledgeable about the area

Morza

Every day we travelled through the scenic Kimberley ranges on roads that you wouldn’t want to take your own car on, to beautiful places that you wouldn’t find on your own. Most days, this involved a bushwalk to a river or a lake, with a swim or boat trip. A highlight was a challenging 1 hour walk up a dry river bed, for a welcome swim in a deep pool under a 60 metre droplet waterfall at Emma Gorge in El Questro Wilderness Park.
