Fitzroy River Fishing Adventure
The mighty Fitzroy River offers awesome fishing opportunities ranging from taking your chance at the salt water estuary at the mouth of the King Sound to the deep fresh water pools as the river meanders its way across the West Kimberley. Try your hand at catching the elusive Barramundi in pristine waters with a guide that knows the best of locations in all situations.
Kimberley Pastoral Station Visit
Drive through open range bull paddocks and stop to hear some yarns of one of the Kimberley’s first industries – the pastoral industry. Hear first hand about the Aboriginal contribution to the industry. Visit an old out camp and see how the outback stockman lived on the stations of old. Take an outing to a working cattle station and see how the beef cattle industry has emerged over the years.
Aboriginal Community Experience
Many communities have emerged along the Fitzroy River to provide for local Aboriginal people to return to their traditional country and practice cultural ways away from the influences of busy town life. The communities and outstations provide a mix of traditional and contemporary lifestyle choices for Aboriginal people. Visit an Aboriginal community and spend time to develop cultural awareness insights and share experiences with Aboriginal people in an authentic way.
