Coral Adventurer's Sacred Kimberley (Darwin to Broome)
DURATION:11 Days/ 10 NightsREGION:The KimberleySHIP:Coral Adventurer
From 2019, cruise the Kimberley coast aboard the new, state-of-the-art expedition ship Coral Adventurer. Covering more than 400,000 square kilometres (an area three times larger than England) in North West Australia, yet it is home to just 30,000 people. It is a place universally acknowledged as one of the world’s last - and possibly most beautiful - wilderness areas. And, Kimberley cruises are the best way to discover it all!
The Kimberley is a place of magnificent vistas created by towering rock ridges, silent secluded gorges, wide savannah plains and plunging waterfalls which defy both nature and belief. This is a land steeped in ancient Aboriginal culture and adorned with the world’s oldest known indigenous art, the mysterious Bradshaw (Gwion Gwion) paintings. Experience the heartland of Australia’s northernmost unspoilt outback. Kimberley Cruising is a completely unique experience.

Modern and rugged, the latest addition to the Coral Expeditions fleet will accommodate a maximum of just 120 guests in 60 spacious staterooms and suites, more than half featuring a private balcony. Care has been taken with the design of the ship to preserve Coral Expeditions’ traditionally relaxed and intimate onboard atmosphere. She will be Australian flagged and conform to the highest standards of build quality, operational redundancy, environmental compliance, and safety. Design features include spacious communal areas, a light-filled lecture room, open seat dining room, open bridge policy and a flexible fleet of excursion tenders.
Coral Adventurer will join the Coral Expeditions fleet exploring the Kimberley region, Cape York and Arnhem Land (The Top of Australia), Papua New Guinea, the Spice Islands, Indonesia and the South Pacific.

Special Notice : Since release of our 2019 Kimberley programs, the Traditional Owners of the Kimberley and their representatives have advised that a permit/fee for guests accessing traditional lands when cruising the Kimberley region will be imposed for 2019 and beyond. Our cruise line partners are working with the Traditional Owners to integrate into a sustainable cultural tourism management plan however given the late introduction and enforcement of this fee, the listed 2019 fare excludes traditional owner visitor access fees.
