With dramatic waterfalls, plunging gorges,
Aboriginal rock art, deserted beaches,
indigenous wildlife and fewer people per
square mile than almost any other place on
Earth, the Kimberley is one of Australia’s
hidden treasures. This vast area, located in
Australia’s north-west, is three times the size
of England, and much of it is only accessible
by boat. This cruise itinerary is available in
both directions between Darwin and Broome,
with departures in April and May 2017.
