The leaders in luxury travel, APT and the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley, in conjunction with Tourism WA, Alliance Airlines and Virgin Australia, are proud to announce that from 18 May 2020 until 31 August 2020, direct flights will be available between Melbourne and Kununurra three times a week. An official announcement was made this weekend at the Kimberley Moon Experience, as part of the region’s Ord Valley Muster.

APT is delighted to partner with Alliance Airlines and Virgin Australia on this initiative, as these flights will perfectly support APT’s Kimberley Coast Cruising program in 2020. Flights from Melbourne to Kununurra will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while return journeys will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. And great news for Travel Agents, all flights can be booked via your GDS.

“At APT, we look forward to welcoming many guests to the region and Kununurra is the perfect gateway. We pride ourselves as the Kimberley experts and paving the way for accessibility in this remote region, and this partnership with Virgin Australia allows our guests a far more convenient and stress-free journey to this epic part of Australia,” explained Head of APT Kimberley & Outback Wilderness Adventures, Angus Tandy.

“Kununurra is the gateway to the East Kimberley. This new and improved access allows immediate exploration of Bungle Bungle Range and Ord River, and as a result, we are excited to introduce more short breaks in the area. Also being accessible to Wyndham, guests embarking on our 10-day Grand Kimberley Coast expedition cruise are able to delve right into the remote region’s wonders without having to endure long, uneventful days at sea,” he continued.

10-day Grand Kimberley Coast
Starting at the special price of $11,195 per person, twin share, which includes free return economy airfare – offer strictly limited for sale until 30 June 2019 unless sold out prior. What better way to explore the secluded gorges and sprawling reefs of the Kimberley’s rugged coastline, than aboard your very own intimate small ship? Venture out on daily Zodiac excursions to remote locations that are typically inaccessible to most travellers and explore coastal areas teeming with marine life.
