A core base for adventures is the Oongkalkada Wilderness Camp established at Udialla Springs, a 3,000 acre Nyikina-Mangala property, situated between Broome and Derby and fronting the Fitzroy River.
Within 200 kilometres from Broome, or 100 kilometres from Derby, you will find this Aboriginal owned and operated base camp resting amongst a remarkable Kimberley wilderness setting, with the mighty Fitzroy River at your doorstep. Fresh mineral springs surrounding your camp base and an amazing array of indigenous fauna and flora as your backdrop.
Your tour will commence from this amazing location and from here you can choose to sit back and explore your surroundings, or embark on a new and exciting adventure from the heart of the Kimberley.
These Aboriginal owned and operated tours are based in Australia’s Kimberley region, one of the world’s last great wilderness areas. Remote and rugged, its landscape is spectacular with wide horizons, ancient gorges, crystal clear rock pools and pristine beaches, it is a special place for the indigenous people of the area.
The Kimberley has a tropical summer and dry winter and this diverse climate changes the landscape from season to season.
