Hi Simone John Phil and Liz.
I like to change the words to songs and sing to people to make them smile. I sang this around the table on our last night. Enjoy.
To the tune of “You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille ” by Kenny Rogers.
You picked the Gibb River road to take us on Phil and Liz.
5000 corrugations – nowhere to take a whiz.
We’ve had a Wild time – No not a mild time.
We took the tour choc full of fizz.
You picked the Kimberley to take us on Phil and Liz.
August 2016 – the tour group, it was 13.
They picked us up 6am from Broome.
We headed to Derby – the road was straight not curvy.
Count river crossings was our game.
First stop was Tunnel Creek.
Later met Moo who wasn’t meek – he slobbered his saliva over Liz.
Many crossings they were empty, Gorges there were plenty.
Where you from mate? Colleen had to play that quiz.
Sex kitten Sandra- known as Attenborough
Howard Priscilla – Sir Galahad
Mike was the quiet bloke, Linda she got heat stroke – lucky for her it wasn’t bad.
Bosom buddies Cheryl and Pam
One night they gobbled bush lamb
Gave each other as good as they got.
Sally – post natal nurse from Tammin- hubby John took pictures like a demon.
They brought along sweet swag roller Jim.
Lost towel Kununurra
Hearing aids Purnululu
Phone chargers, toothpaste and a hat.
Sunglasses and washing line
Coffee cups, but never wine
Sandra now 60 lost her youth.
Clean socks always dirty
And some feet did hurty
But somehow we found what was lost.
The team helped each other
Liz and Phil they played Mother
For many their bucket list crossed.
Neil he was not well
But the group treated him very well
The food was bloody great what can I say.
Most nights we had a fire – the bar it just got higher.
Briefings let us know what to expect next day.
Phil was a great driver, thanks to him we’re all survivors.
Liz, well she’s a kitchen whiz.
We’d just like to thankyou;
Some might even say knight you!
I dub you Sir Phil and Dame Liz.
With Last line sang twice – and changed to:
We had a great time -thanks to Phil and Liz.

We have been fortunate enough to have experienced most of the iconic places in our country.
However, Adventure Wild took us on a tour of The Kimberley which eclipses all else.
You must go there.
We are grateful to Adventure Wild and especially to our tour leaders, Gools & Tommo, for a remarkable 12 days

Just to say thanks for a wonderful holiday. Every day we thought it could not get better, but it certainly did.
Mark and Carmel were fantastic guides and very informative. The meals were superb. The atmosphere around the camp fire of an evening was great, again helped by the personalities of Mark and Carmel.
For us as newcomers to Australia and camping it has been an amazing experience, one we will never forget.
We will have no hesitation in recommending Adventure Wild, as we have already done so while in Broome.
Again many thanks for a wonderful holiday from two first time campers

A big THANK YOU to all of you! It was an awesome tour! Everything was planned and organized in an excellent manner. 100% preparation is already 90% of the success. This tour was really a 100% success. Mark and Carmel you were excellent guides and you surprised us every day again with fantastic meals. As a camping newbie I was really fascinated what you prepared every day.
You showed us lots of beautiful spots in the Kimberley. Frederik and I enjoyed swimming in all the wonderful gorges. We have taken hundreds of photos and we still have not managed to sort them out properly.
I sincerely hope that I have the chance to do this tour again. But then of course I would not cut the trip short and take the full tour in order to also see the Bungles. It is definitely worthwhile to fly half round the world from Germany to Australia to see this beautiful part of Australia. Some of my friends in Australia whom I told about this tour are keen to see the Kimberley too. And I will definitely recommend Adventure Wild to them.
I wish you the very best!

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour. Having grown up a country girl I just loved the scenery and landscapes which were spectacular in the Kimberley – I am still raving about it to anyone who dares to listen!!! Our guides Carmel and Mark, were fantastic and happy to share their knowledge and accommodate everyone’s needs during the trip. Having camped before privately, I was very comfortable in our swags and although the tents were clean and spacious, I chose to sleep under the stars each night bar the 2 colder nights when I retreated to the tent!!!
I loved exploring the gorges with our friendly caring group of adventurers and took advantage of the opportunity to fly up to the coast and Kalumburu, cruise the Ord River and fly by helicopter over the Bungle Bungles. I would thoroughly recommend all three to future adventurers. Thank you so much – every detail of the trip was taken care of and the choice of sites to visit and camp were wonderful. I have willingly recommended Adventure Wild to friends and family since returning.
Kind regards and sincere thanks
