Package Overview

Discover King George River, Twin Falls, Hunter River, Collier Bay, Montgomery Reef and the Buccaneer Archipelago whilst cruising in luxurious comfort onboard Le Laperouse in 2024.

One of the last unspoiled regions in the word, The Kimberley awaits your discovery. This spectacular region stretches from Darwin, along the north-western coast line to Broome and is approximately two-thirds the size of France. Remote and wild, some areas are only accessible by boat, allowing the region to remain uncommercialised and untouched.

Remnants of early civilisations dating back thousands of years can still be seen in the form of rock art in remote caves and the history of these early, isolated inhabitants is fascinating. The landscape is seriously spectacular with red, sunburnt cliffs plunging into abrupt ravines and rivers snaking through the scorched land to tumble over cliffs in dramatic waterfalls. Here you will find several of Mother Nature's works of art with the Horizontal Falls and Montgomery Reef, which seems to rise magically out of the ocean on an outgoing tide, exposing the reef in all her glory and any unfortunate marine life that didn't manage to make it off the rocks in time. With it's unexpected reefs and unpredictable tides, it's easy to see why so many early ships came to grief here. Shipwrecks and stories of early explorers abound!

Saltwater crocodiles, endemic birdlife and native flora and fauna can all be sighted on your travels and with the naturally stunning landscape for a backdrop, you won't be able to help reaching for your camera! For some truly amazing photo opportunities, scenic flights over the waterfalls and canyons are a great option as seeing the sheer size and majesty of The Kimberleys from the air will give you a whole new perspective.

This is the Australia that greeted the early intrepids. Unforgiving and robust, yet breath-takingly beautiful, The Kimberley will hold you spellbound. This is the Australia of yesterday... unspoilt, rugged, red and resplendent and incredibly resilient. You simply have to see it to fully appreciate it.
