How active is the Kimberley Tour?
To get the most out of this trip you need to be prepared for walks of between 3-9 km on some days. This may be on rough ground and perhaps getting feet wet in rivers and creeks. From Oct to March in the Red Centre, West Coast, and South of Australia you will experience temperatures of over 35 degrees Celsius (and sometimes well into the 40’s) so be prepared to endure extra physical stress due to the heat at these times, especially while on walks. In the Top End of Australia (Kimberley and Kakadu) temperatures in the shoulder months of April, May and September, October humidity levels can be high and sometimes slightly uncomfortable.
This tour is only for fit, active, and capable travellers who can hike 3-9kms on consecutive days over uneven terrain, often having to climb or clamber over surfaces. Some hikes may require sections of walking/swimming through water. The temperatures can be extreme during the day, placing strain on the body. Due to the remote nature of the Kimberley region we use bush camps with limited facilities on some nights. This trip is swag camping. The operator reserves the right to assess the fitness capability of passengers prior to tour departure. Tour is not suitable for children.
These extreme outside temperatures can also place stress on the air-conditioning units within our vehicles which can make travelling uncomfortable. Your tour guide will assist with regular breaks and information to assist in keeping well hydrated.
