An Old Skool Tour Of The Karijini

Karijini tours

A remote part of Western Australia, the Karijini has increased in popularity in the last 10 years, with more tour companies than ever before exploring the gorges, rock pools and vast landscape of the national park. If you want to go back to basics and get to the true heart of the Karijini, you have to go old school.
An exclusive tour between Integrity Coach Lines and The Flying Sandgroper, the Old Skool Karijini Experience is full of activity and adventure in just two days, visiting the best in the west and the best in the east of northern Karijini. This includes Kermits Pool, Hancock Gorge, Knox Gorge, Dales Gorge, Circular Pool and Fortescue Falls – spots that are both too good to miss and a little harder to get to. Spend two days swimming, hiking, eating BBQ lunches and sleeping under the stars in a swag. There’s also a visit to the Karijini Visitor’s Centre to learn more about the park from its traditional owners – because it’s important to let them know of your presence in the park.

There’s an emphasis on raw, independent travel on the Old Skool Karijini Experience, which was precisely the intention. As a two-day tour, passengers don’t have to stay in the park for too long, and can be back on the road safely with Integrity Coach Lines, whether taking the night coach north to Broome or down south toward Perth. There’s no phone reception, which can be weird at first, but once you embrace the peace, serenity and natural beauty, you soon realise that you don’t really need it.

The Old Skool Karijini Experience fits hand-in-hand with the hop-on hop-off travel of Integrity Coach Lines. You have the freedom of deciding where to go and how long for, but can travel safely with a professional driver – a great way to avoid self-driving the incredibly long and treacherous distances of Western Australia. You can also end up saving a bundle on accommodation with overnight drives to your next destination, and at $365 per pass from Perth to Broome or vice versa, is cheaper than many alternatives.

The Old Skool Karijni Experience is $385pp when you have an Integrity hop-on hop-off pass, and includes meals, water, national park fees, a local guide, pick-up from Tom Price (where Integrity will drop you off) and swag hire. Due to the intense temperatures that the Karijini can get up to, this tour can only run from April to October, the region’s dry season.
