From humble beginnings on the Great Barrier Reef forty years ago, we have taken our unique style of Australian expedition cruising to the far-flung lands of the Kimberley, Tasmania and the Small Islands of the Indian Ocean and the Pacific. Wherever we go, we have one purpose – taking small groups of like-minded explorers to the most remote parts of the world with expert guidance and warm Australian hospitality.

“After a day of touring the city and visiting the Larnach Castle, we made our way to the penguin reserve. We saw penguins in rehabilitation and learnt about the threats these adorable birds face.”

Kulhudhulfushi - school visit

Kulhudhuffushi, Kuburuhdoo

22 January 2023

“That afternoon we visited a local primary school where the teachers and the kids decided to give us an impromptu performance in the school hall of a traditional song and dance that the younger ones had been practising. The little kids were so sweet, and the performance was even more special knowing we were the first western people to visit the school.

Schouten Island Waterfall Walk

Schouten Island

20 January 2023

Today’s trail was along the Schouten Island waterfall walk. The walk started with an easy-to-moderate walk through the Casuarinas and Oyster Bay pines down to a creek where we crossed granite rock steps. At the top of the trail, we were rewarded with amazing views and enjoyed a dip in a rather unique single-person 6ft deep waterhole – this gave everyone a great laugh and spirits were high.”

Fed by the King George River draining across the Gardner Plateau, 80m tall King George Falls are the most impressive Kimberley waterfalls and the highest twin falls in Western Australia. Before reaching the mist-like spray rising from the base of King George Falls, we cruise through steep-sided gorges carved by a flooded river system that carved a swathe through the Kimberley landscape 400 million years ago.

Early in the waterfall season, we may cruise around the base of impressive King George Falls while in later months we take the opportunity to view the honeycomb erosion patterns of sandstone cliffs up close.

“Arriving in Sabang, we hopped aboard some small vans and drove the winding roads up the hill to the school. The school was excellent and the kids made a big effort to prepare for our arrival. The dances and music they put on were so lovely it touched us to see their efforts and friendliness. We then continued our journey driving along the jungle-clad roads, climbing higher over the steep hills, and passing betel nut palm, coconut palm, and colossal forest trees. The next stop was to see the Japanese bunker. This stop was quite historically interesting as well as beautiful. We walked up to a gun turret with an old cannon still bolted down there. One of our last stops before returning to the ship for an afternoon of snorkelling was a lovely walk through the forest at the geothermal springs. Here you can climb up to see the small sulphur-filled vents steaming from the boiling mud below.”

Hunter River is where turquoise waters contrast with steep ochre rock escarpments interspersed with pockets of lush green vegetation. Running 30 kilometres long, it is said to be home to the highest density of estuarine crocodiles in comparison to any other river in the vast Kimberley region.

Hunter River holds high cultural significance to the Wunambal Gaambera people as it houses the mythical Wunggurr, known as the creator snake. The Indigenous people of this land are the Wunambal people, and the Indigenous name for this area is Yirinni.

Our Fleet of Expedition Ships & Tenders

Our fleet of three expedition ships are Australian-flagged and crewed. With only 120 guests, there are no queues, long waits, or assigned meal slots. Instead, enjoy a relaxed, convivial atmosphere shared with like-minded explorers. The shallow draft and high manoeuvrability of our ships gets us closer to explore the sheltered bays, hidden inlets and fishing villages inaccessible to larger ships. All our ships feature our trademark Xplorer tenders, our open-sided safari boats that make excursions pleasant and safe.
