About Kingfisher Tours
EXPERIENCE THE AUTHENTIC KIMBERLEY WITH THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE
Kingfisher Tours embraces the adventure of the Kimberley region with our authentic and exciting tour experiences from the Bungle Bungle Range to the grand gorges in hues of red and orange, right out to the exquisite turquoise waters of the Northern Kimberley coast and the ancient landscapes at the Mitchell Plateau. With Kingfisher Tours, you have the opportunity to experience the uncommon beauty of these landscapes by Air, 4WD and on foot, with our local Aboriginal Custodian for country guides.
Kingfisher Tours is a local family company ; we have lived here for 30 years and have been operating Kingfisher tours as one of our businesses for the last 11 years in the Northeast Kimberley.
We have created unique products in partnership with the custodians of the country, you are submerged in the landscape, soaking in the ancient knowledge of the region with our knowledgeable Aboriginal guides who share the rich and diverse history of the Kimberley Region; the stories of the land and the Dreamtime are conversations that you will take with you.
Our ground tours boast local produce and some bush tucker for lunches, or our fresh Mango jams and chutneys from the local farms. Your guides will also point out local bush tucker and bush botanicals in the area. For those of our guests on our overnight tours and the Iconic Air Safari, your accommodation will be in APT’s Wilderness Lodges in Purnululu and the Mitchell Falls.
Kingfisher tours are very conscious of our pristine wilderness that we live and tour in. As such we have introduced several initiatives to minimise the single-use plastic in the business and continue to encourage other tour operators, in particular our partners to do the same.
We also aim to employ local staff from Custodian for Country tour guides to our reservation team, so our guests will be received by a local Kimberley resident.
Our guests always have a window seat when flying so as not to miss any elements of the immersive landscape and our 4WD’s on the ground are air-conditioned Toyota Prado’s.
We look forwarding to welcoming you on board an enriching Kimberley experience with us!
OUR ETHOS + SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

We are all about LOCAL in everything we do.
Kingfisher Tours are very conscious of our pristine wilderness that we live and tour in. As such we have introduced a number of initiatives to minimise the single-use plastic in the business, and continue to encourage other tour operators and our partners in particular to do the same. This includes our partnership with Project Pargo to supply high quality water bottles and keep cups for our tours.
Kingfisher Tours also have a probono program to help local Aboriginal Business development in the region. If as a guest you have skills that you are happy to share, legal, financial, management or marketing please let us know and we can link you with a number of local projects we support . Having professional links into the major cities is of enormous benefit.
Kingfisher Tours are committed to supporting the development of micro business within our Kingfisher tours family and are so proud of our Head Guide’s Purnululu Bush medicine label ‘Garingbaar Products’.
