Kimberley Luxury Cruise

Trackless and extremely rugged, the coast and hinterland of the West Kimberley is one of Australia's last true wilderness regions which is most easily accessed by boat. This ultimate highlights itinerary condenses several Kimberley icons into a single voyage including the King George Falls, the Hunter River, the Prince Regent River, Montgomery Reef and the Horizontal Waterfalls. These places feature stunning scenery including gorges cut through the ancient sandstone and offer access into a beautiful and wild world. Tranquil pools, rapids and waterfalls, terraces of rock, white beaches, ancient rock art, stately stands of tropical paperbarks, patches of monsoon rainforest and always a backdrop, the red rocky ramparts. During the trip you'll have the opportunity to 'land a barra', enjoy gentle walks, try mud crabbing, swim in idyllic billabongs or even view many of the sites during a helicopter flight (purchased additionally onboard). There is also an opportunity to see the "Bradshaws" - possibly the oldest art known to man. Each evening you will relax to fine wine and food on your luxury vessel, the True North, which carries only 36 guests.

Day 1
Your 'Welcome Aboard' the magnificent TRUE NORTH is in the pearling port of Broome. Embarkation is at 1700 time for a cocktail with your fellow adventurers before departing at approximately 1830. Dinner is served shortly after leaving port for the overnight cruise to Yampi Sound.
Day 2
Awake to the majestic Kimberley and savour an irresistible True North breakfast as we glide past Cockatoo and Koolan Islands our attentive crew will be happy to introduce the colourful histories of both! Then it's time to 'personally' introduce you to a Kimberley icon The Horizontal Falls. Experience the awesome power of the region's huge tidal range in an exhilarating tender ride and then climb aboard your air conditioned helicopter for a view of the falls that very few experience! Then you will have hardly had a chance to catch your breath when, for those who can't wait one minute longer, Leadline Creek will be the first opportunity to 'land a barra'! Before you know it, your first day onboard will be coming to an end but there's still time to select a fine wine and to enjoy a leisurely evening meal as we cruise to Doubtful Bay.
Day 3
This morning is devoted to exploring the Sale River. Fish the mouth for barra and then join naturalists and adventurers alike as we 'ride the tide' on a classic river expedition! Enjoy a swim in your very own billabong before returning to the ultimate comfort of the True North. Then, you'll probably be enjoying lunch as we weigh anchor and cruise for another Kimberley icon Montgomery Reef! Montgomery is a unique eco-system that must be seen to be believed and see it you will as 140 square miles of coral reef rises out of the ocean right before your very eyes! Water cascades from the reef as the tide falls exposing a privileged glimpse of another world! Turtles, dugong, manta rays and every imaginable sea creature abound and the helicopter puts all in perspective!
Day 4
The scenery will astound and there are some not to be missed fishing spots as the True North graces the majestic Prince Regent River. At Kings Cascades we manuvre the True North right under the falls. Then it's time for more 'adventure in the tender' a chance to stretch the laces on your hiking boots and an opportunity to swim in yet another picture perfect billabong. The helicopter will be popular again when the first group of intrepid explorers returns from Jurassic Park!
Day 5
If you think the Regent was good wait till ya see the Hunter! With stunning red cliffs set behind rainforest and mangroves the Hunter River is yet another awesome setting for fishing, mud crabbing, bird watching and just simply exploring! Enjoy an exhilarating hike to the hidden Jackson Falls and there's even more splendour from the helicopter! Hopefully we'll have time for a sunset drink on Naturaliste Island and then it's an overnight cruise to Vansittart Bay.
Day 6
Today there will be an opportunity to see the "Bradshaws" possibly the oldest art known to man. The heli-picnic at Eagle Falls is always a 'big hit'- enjoy a sumptuous picnic lunch amidst breathtaking scenery. The tenders will also be busy exploring local beaches and creeks. Overnight we cruise to Koolama Bay.
Day 7
Yet another mighty Kimberley river The King George! As soon as the tide is high enough, we'll cross the sand bars at the mouth to reveal even more breathtaking river vista. Then our journey upstream will take us to the very 'jewel in the crown' The King George Falls. Here we anchor at the base of the Twin Falls and you will find endless places to explore. Climb, or take the helicopter, to the top of the falls for a cruise highlight. Just the thought of leaving this magnificence will inspire mutiny! Learn about the bombing of a state-ship during WWII, then take a stroll at Tranquil Bay before we continue onto the frontier port of Wyndham.
Day 8
Your courtesy coach will arrive at approximately 0800 hours for transfer to Kununurra and your crew will already be looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the mighty TRUE NORTH!
