Travel Chat – Highlights of the Kimberley – Wednesday 13 July 2022

Last month, seventeen Probus members travelled to the Kimberley region in Western Australia (organised by Jane Elliot, our travel expert extraordinaire).

They enjoyed it so much, they want to share the highlights of this vast wilderness area.  Different members will showcase the parts of the trip they enjoyed the most, including:

  • The unique striped Bungles Bungles
  • Argyle mine which produced the famous pink diamonds with a personal story
  • Lake Argyle (the largest man made fresh water lake in the southern hemisphere) and cruises along the Ord river and Geikie Gorge on the Fitzroy River
  • Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek Cave walk
  • Beagle Bay with its beautiful mother of pearl decorated Sacred Heart church and Cygnet Bay pearl farm

As well, they met incredible First Nation people who shared their connection to Country, their history, tales, poems and artworks.

There is a Kimberley trip offered next year, so if you are considering joining this trip or have already signed up or want to learn more about this spectacular area, come along.  You will receive tips on how to travel again with travelling tips such as packing to a 15kg limit, how to prepare for the unexpected and more.

Come along on Wednesday 13 July at 11:00 am – 1:00 pm in the Breakfast Point Admin Building and enjoy highlights of the Kimberley, Western Australia.
