Accommodation on tour

APT Wilderness Lodges

Boasting the best locations and offering ‘a touch of luxury’, APT’s network of intimate wilderness lodges continues to lead the way for remote accommodation.

APT ran its first tour into the vast and rugged frontier of the Kimberley over 40 years ago. In those days, accommodation didn’t exist. Since then, APT has built unique partnerships with the Traditional Owners and created a network of exclusive wilderness lodges in key locations, many of which are in enviable positions on prime Indigenous-owned sites.

Today, this commitment to quality and innovation continues. Completed in 2015, the Ungolan Pavilion at Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge raises the bar for remote accommodation once again.

Architecturally designed, it fuses modern Australian and Indigenous influences, creating a sophisticated sanctuary in this rugged frontier. New features include a lounge, bar, library and dining areas. A new commercial kitchen will enable us to provide an even higher standard of gourmet cuisine.

APT together with the local Kandiwal Community, invite you to be one of the first adventures to experience the ancient landscapes and rich indigenous culture combined with this new sophisticated sanctuary on the Mitchell Plateau.
