Definitive Kimberley (Darwin to Broome)
DURATION:11 Days/ 10 NightsREGION:The KimberleySHIP:Coral Geographer
From 2021, cruise the Kimberley coast aboard the new, state-of-the-art expedition ship Coral Geographer. Covering more than 400,000 square kilometres (an area three times larger than England) in North West Australia, yet it home to just 30,000 people, the Kimberley 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.

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 that allow access to even the most hard to reach locations.
