The North Western area of Australia is home to the Kimberley region, famed for its wide open plains, rugged coastline and dramatic gorges and the perfect backdrop for an expedition cruise.
Your vessel for this itinerary, Silver Discoverer, is one of the finest ships operating in the region and boasts a shallow draft which allows her to get close to the shore for numerous landings by Zodiac.
Embarking in Broome, home of the famous Cable Beach, a 22km stretch of white sand, your cruise will head northwards to the Buccaneer Archipelago Region. This impressive collection of 800 islands, home to a thriving pearl industry in the 19th century, is virtually uninhabited except for the many varieties of snakes, lizards and crocodiles.
Day three is spent exploring the Hunter River region where you can view impressive mangroves and red sandstone cliffs which are home to many birds, fiddler crabs, mudskippers and the saltwater crocodile. You can also view Mitchell falls, a four tier waterfall flowing into the Mitchell River. If you find waterfalls a thing of beauty, you will not be disappointed with the next stop on this cruise, the King George River region where you can view the 260ft high King George falls, amongst the highest falls in Australia.
Next your cruise takes you to Wyndham which is a small settlement of just 900 people, which was founded during the Gold Rush of 1886. From here you can visit the Bungle Bungle Mountains, a World Heritage site in the Purnululu National Park. After a day at sea you will arrive on Jaco Island on the eastern point of Timor in Southeast Asia.The island is uninhabited and considered sacred by the locals and is the home to many varieties of dove, pigeons as well as a native deer which drinks salt water, due to the lack of fresh water on the island.
After a day at sea you then arrive into Darwin where your cruise will end. It is well worth extending you stay by a couple of days to explore Darwin and the nearby Kakadu National Park, home of the saltwater crocodile and abundance of wild birds as well as a wealth of aboriginal history.Contact Us
