APT's Australia film travel product examples

If you are looking for product examples of Kimberley experiences around the film Australia, below are details re APT which knows this country exceptionally well, having operated adventure tours there for 16 years.

APT is the only operator with access to permanent accommodation at Mitchell Falls, the biggest inland water falls in the Kimberley, where helicopter flights are part of some of APT's packages.

The region's rugged escarpments, deep gorges with their cool rock pools and waterfalls, expansive cattle land, tropical wetlands, wildlife and an association with local Aboriginal people are presented by APT, primarily through its range of small group 4WD wilderness adventures which include permanent tented wilderness camps, complete with the comforts of ensuite bathrooms and cooks on hand to dish up evening meals around the camp fire.

More than 300 departures are available for APT small group 4WD wilderness adventures – maximum 20 people -- all offering a high degree of discovery, made possible by 4WD vehicles custom-built for Kimberley terrain.

Key features of the APT holidays are Advanced EcoTourism certification for sustainable tours and camps, the 4WD vehicles, APT's own award-winning permanent, fully-hosted lodges and camps in The Kimberley and a unique partnership with the Wunan Foundation -- which represents the local indigenous people of the East Kimberley -- has allowed APT to build an exclusive lodge and network of permanent camps on remote Aboriginal land.

A good example is the 15-day Broome-Broome Kimberley Complete adventure, priced at $5495 per person twin share with departures from April 28 to October 8. Discounts of $400 per couple/$200 per person are offered on some early and late season departures.

The price includes touring, accommodation, 34 meals, cruises, sightseeing and park fees.
