Mimbi Caves Tour


The tour begins with a fascinating walk between towering Karst cliffs to the caves entrance. Along the way your guide will share traditional knowledge of local bush tucker, bush medicine and the native flora and fauna found around the cave system.

After a quick check of torches you enter the caves. The walls of the cave are abundant with marine fossils, layers of sedimentary limestone and richly coloured ochres that stain the walls. Natural light enters the cave system through holes in the cave roof making it possible to navigate through the cave and casting light on ancient rock paintings, each of which has its own unique connection to the caves and local people.

During the tour enjoy traditional Billie Tea and damper, made the traditional way using native seeds, around the campfire while Ronnie shares a song or two on the guitar and tells the Gooniyandi Dreaming story of the Blue Tongue Lizard and the Mud Lark.

Experience the acoustics of the natural amphitheatre and see the deserted German squatters camp, complete with intricate carvings and stone shelter.

After the tour, you will have the opportunity cool off in one of the many permanent, freshwater pools near the caves campsite.

Description

Jandamarra’s hideout

Western Australia's oldest cave system, in Tunnel Creek National Park, is famous as a hideout used late last century by the Aboriginal leader Jandamarra. He was killed outside its entrance in 1897.

Tunnel through the reef

You can walk through the tunnel to the other side of the Napier Range. The trek runs underground for 750 metres and you have to wade through several permanent pools and return the same way. At least five species of bats live in the cave, including ghost bats and fruit bats, and stalactites descend from the roof in many places.  The roof has collapsed through to the top of the range near the centre of the tunnel. Take a torch, wear sneakers and be prepared to get wet and possibly cold.

Take a day trip to the tunnel

Day trips to Tunnel Creek operate from Derby, Fitzroy Crossing and Broome and usually include a visit to Windjana Gorge. Fees apply to visit the national park.

You need a four-wheel-drive to access the park, which is generally inaccessible during the wet season.
Tunnel Creek is a day use area, with facilities limited to toilets, picnic tables and an information shelter. You are welcome to camp at nearby Windjana Gorge National Park (camping fees apply).
