When you rsvp, please provide your full name, contact no,  email address and bedding configuration.  A few members from NPA did this walking tour of Kimberley last winter and the feedbacks were positive.  For your comfort level, I’’m quoting  the insight from Graham. “The walks are no problem for NPA grade 3 walkers. Lots of river stone/rock walking cause they are mostly in gorges. Not long walks. 30 to 34 Deg every day. Down to 10-12 deg some nights so camping gets cool. Campfires. Coolest nights July. Purnalulu is coolest cause no fires allowed." Please see below link to itinerary and prices.
