I have been meaning to send you a note since our return home from our wonderful trip. Family caring and life seems to take up a lot of time!
We cannot thank you all enough for arranging the wonderful experience and adventure on the Coral Discoverer, then on to Broome, El Questro and Kununurra. We are so grateful that you encouraged us with the itinerary you organised, it far exceeded all our expectations.
A little hiccup you wouldn’t believe the day after we arrived in Darwin I smashed my foot on a paver that was sticking up, and damaged my foot which I thought was a bad sprain as I could weight bear. I kept it up for the few days and iced every two hours before joining the trip. More about that later.
The Coral Discoverer ship, crew, catering, and passengers were all a delight. We sat with everyone on the voyage and made a few friends that we will keep for life. We were all like a big family by the end of the trip and there was much bonhomie and laughter. Everyone was so kind to me with my foot and as passengers and crew found out, they would arrive at the next meal or expedition with sticks, sprays creams bandages, I was very cared for. I joined all the experiences and loved the thrilling helicopter flight to the Mitchell falls and exhilarating zodiac ride to the horizontal falls. Jamie and Ian were the most wonderful guides and we are so blessed to have been able to do this trip. We learned so much about the history of the Kimberley and far west and truly was a trip of a lifetime. I could write much more but every second was amazing.
We had the most fabulous time at El Questro and then in Kununurra and were blown away by the Bungle Bungles, Cathedral Gorge and the Ord River. Thank you again for convincing us to experience the bungle bungle flight and Ord river cruise. El Questro was amazing with our cabin overlooking that wonderful gorge and the whole week was full of wildlife that couldn’t be counted. (wildlife was probably the one thing that all the cruise passengers agreed we thought we would see more, but the Ord more than made up for it). We would love to plan a driving trip back to the area and spend more time exploring and do the Gibb River Road. The El Questro camp site also looks fabulous and we spoke to lots of campers/ caravaners who were loving their stay.
We would be interested in the Cairns to Arnhem trip in the future.
So again thankyou so much for arranging the trip for us we have not stopped talking about it and sharing the adventure and encouraging our friends to do the same.
