Cruising Australia's Kimberley Coastline
The Kimberley Ultimate blends adventure, luxury and service on a thousand nautical mile voyage from Wyndham to Broome. Witness the might and power of the King George Falls only meters from the bow of the ship, and then marvel at ancient rock paintings in the caves of Jar Island the following day. Soar in our helicopter up to stunning Eagle Falls, and tussle with barramundi, mangrove jack, and giant gold-spot snapper on a daily basis. The Kimberley captivates the traveller with its rugged landscape and billion-year old sandstone gorges, while its delightful freshwater pools and streams offer many private oases. Experience a trip of a lifetime exploring the stunning Australian wilderness.
