2022 Darwin > Broome

Big sky country

The west coast of this wide, brown land features some of the most spectacular and rare landscapes in the world. Big skies, deep gorges, plains that stretch to the horizon and all the colours of the rainbow. It is country tied deeply to ancient lore and generations of stories, and a place that will lay claim to your heart.
From sultry Darwin, you’ll make your way down the coast. The prehistoric and incredibly beautiful Katherine Gorge will astound with its sparkling waters and deep sandstone cliffs, before you find yourself in rich farming country and the stunning El Questro Wilderness Park. Meet a traditional landowner and discover traditional culture and storytelling before arriving in Broome.
