Windjana Gorge

4WD Gibb River Road Stopoff

The Windjana Gorge was created over 350 million years ago. Around this time, a sea blanketed the area and a whole heap of barrier reefs popped up for around 1000km, eventually forming the Napier Range as we know it today.

The awesome Windjana Gorge has been shaped through the Napier Range, over millions of years by the Lennard river. Its name is believed to be a variant of the word "Wandjina" - aboriginal spirit who causes the notorious Kimberley wet seasons. At over 3.5km long, Windjana Gorge reaches a depth of 80 metres. The Lennard River winds through the gorge - a very long sexy river surrounded by steep, ancient reef cliffs & a massive variety of vegetation, some of which include Coolamon Trees, Leichardt Pine, figs, Mellaluecas and grevillias.

A whole tonne of Fresh water crocs sun themselves on sand & in water (parrticularly in the later dry season months - August to November). They won't attempt to hurt you unless they're cornered or threatened. Also visible are Ancient sea fossil imprints and various deposits, which adorn the cliff walls.

Access: It's a pretty gentle 10 min stroll into the gorge with a great view of cliffs, fossils, river & crocs. Swimming is not particularly recommended because of the vast amount of fresh water crocs in the area. Situated in the Napier Range, North East of Derby. The Exit for the road to access Windjana/Tunnel creek is situated around 120km along the Gibb River Road coming from Derby, or 590km from Kununurra. This particular road is also known as the "Fairfield or Leopold Road" and continues through to ‘Highway 1’.

Overnight Camping is permitted at campsite. Toilets/Showers/Subbish bins available for use. A Ranger is in residence, so be sure to pay your camping fees. No pets permitted. Public phone available. Drinking water facilities. No powered sites.

Tunnel Creek

4WD Gibb River Road Stopoff

Tunnel Creek is a deep, weaving cave network, filled with fresh water. Carved around 1km into the Oscar Range by the waters of Tunnel Creek, some ancient Aboriginal rock art is still visible today.

Access: To access the tunnel you'll have to climb over two fairly large boulders (a little under water). There's sandy banks to walk across through most parts of the cave system. You may have to wade through knee-deep waters in some sections of the cave, depending on the time of year you decide to go. It's very dark in certian parts so remember a torch! A Return adventure through Tunnel Creek and its cave networks will take 1 - 2 hours.

Turn onto Windjana/Tunnel Creek road - around 120km along the Gibb River Road if you're accessing it from Derby. The turn-off to the Windjina/Tunnel Creek road is around 590km if you're coming from Kununurra. Tunnel Creek is located about an hours drive along the Windjana/Tunnel Creek road.

Lennard Gorge

4WD Gibb River Road Stopoff

Discovered by Alexander Forrest in 1879, the awesome Lennard River was named after his Gorg-ess (hah get it!) fiancee, Amy Barret Lennard. Lennard River winds through the centre of a most magnificent narrow gorge, before dropping around 30 metres into a very deep, wide and unbelievable swimming hole. This beautiful swimming hole is featured at the bottom of some super high, steep, ancient cliffs. This waterhole is shadowed by the cliff faces throughout the day - a great place for a picnic and a chill!

Access: The Walk to the view of the gorge from the car park will take you about 30 minutes. It's a fairly long, rough & rocky walking track to the summit of the cliffs - so maybe best to plan your hike for the morning hours when it's a bit cooler. To get to the swimming hole for a lovely dip, it's a very steep climb downwards for around 15 minutes. The pools just above the waterfall can also be a nice place to swim, if you can't make it down to the waterhole. Access road is located around 200km if you're coming from Derby along the Gibb River Road. The exit is around 510km if you're driving your 4WD from Kununurra. The road from Gibb River Road to Gorge Carpark will take you around 15 mins to drive.
