The Kimberley Cruise

All three of our purpose-built expedition ships are currently in action exploring the vast wilderness of Australia’s Kimberley Coast right now. The Kimberley’s raw, rugged beauty is best seen from the deck of a small expedition ship. Here, in one of the world’s most remote and beautiful wilderness regions, Indigenous nations have recorded their connection to country through exquisite Wandjina and Gwion Gwion rock art galleries many thousands of years old.  The wet and dry seasons dominate the landscape and waterfalls are generally at their peak in April and May after seasonal rain. Later in the season, witness Humpback Whales on their migration north to breeding grounds along the Kimberley coast.

As the Kimberley Expedition pioneers, we have perfected our itinerary over 25 years. You will explore this rugged land carved by powerful forces of nature, on a thrilling adventure as you enjoy a zodiac ride through Horizontal Falls, shower underneath King Cascade, marvel at 60,000-year-old rock art, and spot crocodiles basking on the shoreline. Join our knowledgeable expedition team as they share insightful interpretation and warm Australian hospitality. 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.
