Testimonial for Adventure Wild

Lynne & John Matthews

Year of Tour: 2017

I am sitting here at home and reflecting on our  adventure, and words that come to mind are amazing, wonderful and exciting.  Our tour was something we have never experienced before (and probably never will again) as far as scenery, colour, raw Australia and sharing it with a wonderful group of people.  This tour will stay forever in our hearts and indelibly etched in our minds.

Our tour leaders, Carmel and Mark were wonderful.  Their knowledge of the whole of the Kimberley area hugely impressive – they managed to store so much in their heads!!  Their communication skills were excellent, yet they were very caring.

Following our tour with Adventure Wild, we did a boat cruise down from Mitchell Plateau to Broome.  Comparing the two, we both feel that Carmel and Mark looked after us exceedingly well; their  sumptious meals – both in quantity and quality by far exceeded the boat cruise. Their friendly personable nature was also something that stood out.

Disappointingly I was unable to do most of the walks due to a knee injury, but having said that, the wonderful places that I could get to, more than made up for it.  It was an early start most days, but we all soon got used to this.

For both of us, the highlights of the trip were many – but a few that were top of the list were:-

  • Sitting and having a chat and drink around the camp fire.
  • Flight over the Bungle Bungles.
  • Galvan Gorge
  • Moonshine Gorge
  • Pigeonhole Lookout sunset
  • Geikie Gorge cruise

Thank you all – it was indeed an experience of a lifetime!
