As I was putting together my photo book of the Kimberley trip I did back in August, the memories of just what a great trip it was came flooding back. Gools and Thommo were outstanding hosts and made it all so enjoyable. From the fantastic meals and cooking to Thommo’s unique way of telling you about the Kimberley’s through his stories, to the wonderful sights and scenery, it made every minute of the trip memorable.
I could not believe the efforts and enthusiasm Gools and Thommo brought to the trip. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and if there was an opportunity to squeeze a bit more in then they did.
Thanks for the opportunity to see the Kimberley’s in style especially when you have limited time.

I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that Adey and Mark couldn’t have been more kind and helpful (despite my shameless, many special requests). It was a truly wonderful tour and I want you to know how much I appreciate the care you and your employees took to give us the best possible time.

We had been to Broome about 6 years before.. we drove.. ourselves.. nearly insane.. we went via Marble Bar and back down the coast but never saw any of the magnificent country of the Kimberly. We were restricted where we could go with our rickety caravan and although it did hold together surprisingly well over the corrugations, it was frankly a pain in the backside and not much of a break from the cooking and driving side of life and we didn’t see much other than the road straight ahead.
We had never done an organised trip before and I was not sure how we would go with someone else doing all the organising.. farmers tend to be very self sufficient and do everything themselves… I am converted.. it was bliss. The scenery was to die for, the organization perfect, the balance between relaxing and ‘adventuring’ was just right for our age group and the company wonderful. The knowledge of Gools and Thommo was par excellence, be it birds, plants or local culture, as were Thommo’s gentle stories that made us think about history and cultural differences.
So not only did we see and hear.. we also thought and started to understand a bit more about what makes Australia what it is.
So back home to the animals and routine and meetings.. but I am pretty good about relaxing and going to bed early and getting up early.. and appreciating the sunrises and sunsets and the glass of wine.. ahhhh.
Thank you Adventure Wild.

1 week since returning from the awesome Kimberley and I can’t stop telling everyone about such a perfect experience.
From initial contact on planning this trip and throughout the 12 days away, I have never before dealt with a more professional organisation.
Thommo and Gools were exceptional hosts and guides with their knowledge and enthusiasm of the entire Kimberly region. The food was amazing. (I think I would do another trip with them just to again experience such great meals. Reality food shows have nothing on what they can produce and that is all while camping.)
The Gibb River is a trip that I had planned to do on my own. I am so glad now that I went with people that know the area and places of interest – and more, and have all the right equipment to tackle such a rugged area. I’m sure so many people miss ‘those special attractions’.
Thanks again to Simone, Rory, Karl, Thommo, Gools and all who made this trip so great, even the mottley bunch we travelled with. (We did all right).

Wow what a wonderful trip we did with Adey & Corf!
The Kimberley has always been an awesome place – but to have the company of a great bunch of people to experience the Gibb River Road with has made it a really special 12 days. We were completely spoilt – the attention to detail in which Adey and Corf plied their craft was a credit to them. The whole trip was brilliant, from the comfort to the awesome scenery and sunsets, the night sky the delicious food and the campfire yarns. I still can’t get the grin off my face.
