The Original Kimberley Cruise

April to Sep
11 days/10 nights

Day 1


Board your vessel. Spend a luxuriant sea day at leisure as you cruise across Joseph Bonaparte Gulf and sail into Western Australian waters.

Day 2

King George Falls (Oomari Falls)

Visit King George Falls, the Kimberley’s most impressive water falls and the highest in Western Australia. Cruise through the steep gorge carved out by the river over 400 million years ago. Early in the waterfall season, you may cruise around the base of King George Falls while in later months you have the opportunity to view the honeycomb erosion patterns of sandstone cliffs up close.

Day 3

Vansittart Bay (Banjal)

Vansittart Bay is home to many cultural and historically significant sites like the remarkable Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) Aboriginal rock art galleries estimated to be up to 20,000 years old. Jar Island is so-named after the pot shards found here, brought to the island by Macassan fisherman harvesting sea cucumbers (also known as trepang).

Day 4

Mitchell Falls

The Mitchell River National Park is inhabited by significant numbers of animals lured by the year round water source. The tumbling Mitchell Falls and ancient rock art are a photographer’s heaven. Explore the plateau on foot or take a scenic helicopter flight (additional cost) to explore the region.

Day 5

Prince Frederick Harbour

Prince Frederick Harbour is one of the Kimberley’s most spectacular locations at the southern end of York Sound. The harbour is dotted with islands lined with mangroves and monsoon rainforests, set against a backdrop of ochre-hued escarpment. Explore the marine and birlife here as well as some striking rock formations.

Day 6

Prince Regent River

Cruise down the Prince Regent River to the King Cascade, a classically beautiful terraced waterfall and one of the most photographed waterfalls in the Kimberley.

Day 7

Montgomery Reef

Montgomery Reef is a biologically diverse area covering over 300 sq km. Twice daily, as the sea recedes in mammoth 11m tides, Montgomery Reef rises from the Indian Ocean in a cascade of rushing water revealing a flat-topped reef pockmarked with rock pools and rivulets. As the reef emerges, get up close to witness the spectacle.

Day 8

Doubtful Bay & Raft Point

Raft Point guards the entrance to Doubtful Bay, a vast body of sheltered water which harbours significant sites such as the ancient Wandjina rock art galleries located a short walk from the beach. Considered some of the finest in the Kimberley, you will visit the rock art galleries when Traditional Owners are available to guide us. Doubtful Bay is the traditional country of the Worrora people who follow the god Wandjina. Images of Wandjina are found throughout the Kimberley, recording their stories, knowledge and culture in stone.

Day 9

Horizontal Falls

The Horizontal Falls are one of the Kimberley’s biggest attractions and are a result of the mammoth 11m tides the Kimberley is renowned for. Water builds up on one side and is forcibly pushed through the bottleneck, creating a rushing horizontal waterfall of swiftly flowing seawater. Riding the rapids on inflatable Zodiacs is one of the trip’s many highlights.

Day 10

Lacepede Islands

The Lacepede Islands are a protected class-A nature reserve and are significant as a seabird nesting rookery for brown boobies and roseate terns. Other species often sighted at the Lacepedes include Australian Pelicans, frigate birds, egrets and gulls. If weather and tide conditions are suitable, explore the lagoons by Xplorer and Zodiac tender vessels.

Day 11

Tour Ends, Broome

Transfer to Broome CBD or Airport. Tour ends
