Overview

Special Offer! Experience the best of The Kimberley and the Top End with a 3 day AAT Kings Kakadu & Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) Short Break followed by a 9 night expedition cruise from Darwin to Broome aboard Heritage Adventurer. One departure date only at this price!

Begin your Northern Territory adventure with a 4 day AAT Kings Short Break.  From jumping crocodiles to Aboriginal Art Galleries, spectacular rock art sites, billabongs and National Parks, this is a great snapshot into an incredible, ancient region.  Wonderful birdlife and amazing scenery greet you at every turn as you cruise the billabongs and gorge.  On completion of the 4 day tour, you'll overnight in Darwin.

Then, discover Australia’s world-famous Kimberley Coast, one of the world’s most pristine and untouched wildernesses in all-inclusive luxury aboard purpose-built 140-guest expedition ship Heritage Adventurer.

Forged by nature and spanning more than 400,000 square kilometres, Western Australia’s wild and remote coastline marries a treasure trove of towering, fractured iron-tinged red cliffs, torrential waterfalls, azure waters, hidden coves and caves, secluded white sand beaches, magnificent reefs and rare and endangered wildlife with indigenous customs and connections to an
ancient land, and rich history.

Best explored by expedition vessel, this Kimberley cruise allows an up close and intimate exploration and immersion of this rugged wilderness dwarfed by nature on an unfathomable scale. Highlights of this voyage include the unforgettable spectacle of King George Falls cascading 80-metres down 2,000 million-year-old towering cliffs, the outdoor galleries showcasing the
ancient Aboriginal rock art of the Gwion Gwion and Wandjina people, World War II relics, early explorer history and an optional helicopter excursion to Mitchell Falls.

At Talbot Bay experience the power of the region’s massive tidal movements and the world’s only Horizontal Falls described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest wonders of the natural world”, and marvel as the world’s largest inshore reef system at nearby Montgomery Reef ‘rises’ out of the water with the falling tide.

Hidden among jagged sandstone monoliths, the final resting place of the remarkably preserved skeleton of a WWII Douglas DC-3 Aircraft awaits discovery at Vansittart Bay, while a glimpse into Australian colonial history can be found carved into the trunk of the centuries old Mermaid Boab Tree at Careening Bay.

Enjoy astounding wildlife encounters and observations from the region’s iconic saltwater crocodiles through to the birding  paradise of the Lacepede Islands and one of the world’s largest and most pristine mangrove systems along the Hunter River home to White-bellied Sea Eagle, Osprey, Red-headed Honeyeater, Blue-spotted Mudskippers, Fiddler Crabs and more.

Discover an ancient landscape like no other as you expedition cruise the untouched beauty of Australia’s iconic Kimberley and experience the truly epic scale of this magnificent region by ship, Zodiac and on foot on this unforgettable Australian adventure.
