*NOTE: This tour is a variation of the DF2 Combo tour as advertised on our brochure. Changes were required due to COVID-19 restrictions impacting our partner.
On this 4WD tour you’ll spend a full day meandering along Parry's Creek Road visiting the springs, waterfalls, and lagoons that feed the Lower Ord River. We'll spot for crocs and birds in the rivers and billabongs, take in breathtaking views overlooking Wyndham and the Gulf, traverse mudflats and view Aboriginal rock art.
Pick-up from your accommodation or meeting point before tour commences.
7:00am: Leaving Kununurra you’ll learn about the Ord Irrigation areas as you pass by the varied crops. After Ivanhoe Crossing we’ll meander along Parry Creek Road ducking down to the Lower Ord River to spot for birds and crocs.
9:00am: Reaching the beautiful Spring Creek and its pristine waterfall after a fairly challenging 4WD track, you can take an easy walk, or a dip before enjoying a delicious morning tea. Leaving around 10:00
11:00am: Further west, we arrive at the thriving Marlgu Billabong in Parry Lagoon Nature Reserve and Ramsar Wetlands. Here you’ll witness a spectacular display of water lilies and a vast array of birdlife, with the occasional visiting saltwater crocodile.
12:00pm: After taking in the wetland views from the hilltop site of the old telegraph receiving station, we’ll stop for lunch at Parry Creek Farm where you can use the facilities (meals available), and even do some more bird watching.
1:00pm: Leaving our lunch stop, we’ll take a drive into the historic port of Wyndham on the edge of Cambridge Gulf, then head up The Bastion to the 330m-high Five-Rivers Lookout for boundless views over the Gulf’s glassy waters. We’ll then wind our way back down to traverse dry mudflats and the tree-lined King River Road, stopping in at some Aboriginal art sites and river viewpoints.
2:30pm: We’ll start making our way back to the highway where we’ll pass the northern edge of the Cockburn Ranges and later stop for afternoon tea at a pretty little waterfall at Molly Springs.
4:30pm: Our last stop is the new viewing platform on the southern side of the Ord River Diversion Dam where you learn a little more about its recent history, before we drop you off at your accommodation or meeting point by 5:00pm.
