The Definitive Kimberley Expedition Cruise

Coral Expeditions’ Kimberley cruises explore a rugged land carved by powerful forces of nature, where engorged rivers overflowing with seasonal rains cut a swathe through sandstone cliffs. Natural highlights of a Kimberley expedition include waterfalls, wildlife, and mammoth tidal streams that conceal and reveal this ancient landscape twice daily. Experience a thrilling nature-based adventure riding horizontal tidal waterfalls, splashing beneath cascading falls or swimming in freshwater rock pools, when conditions allow.

A precious wilderness region almost twice the size of the United Kingdom, the Kimberley’s raw, rugged beauty is best seen from the deck of a small expedition ship. Coral Expeditions’ Kimberley cruise season runs between April and September with waterfalls generally at their peak in April and May.

Australian Aboriginals, the world’s oldest living culture, have recorded their connection to country through exquisite rock art galleries many thousands of years old. Wandjina style artworks etched into rock depict creation stories, mythical creatures and wildlife along with centuries-old European contact.

Coral Expeditions has 25 years’ experience cruising the Kimberley with a knowledgeable expedition team providing insightful interpretation. Explore Australia’s Kimberley region on an unforgettable small ship expedition cruise through an ancient landscape where nature takes centre stage and indigenous connections and exploration history abound.
