            Day-by-Day Itinerary

            Day 1

            You'll embark on your True North Kimberley cruise in beautiful Broome*, boarding around 5.00 pm in time for a sunset drink before setting sail at 6.30 pm. Get to know your fellow adventurers over a special dinner served shortly after leaving port for the overnight cruise to Yampi Sound.

            *This itinerary also operates in reverse from Wyndham, Kununurra to Broome.

            Included: D


            Day 2

            The day begins passing Koolan and Cockatoo Island as you enjoy breakfast with new friends. From here you'll be introduced to your first Kimberley icon, the Horizontal Falls. Experience the awesome power of the region’s huge tidal range in an exhilarating tender ride and then climb aboard your air-conditioned helicopter for a view of the falls that very few experience. Later on, venture out for a walk along white sand Silica Beach, before setting sail for Doubtful Bay as the day draws to a close.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day 3

            A different but equally magical day awaits with True North cruising the Sale River and guests enjoying their first chance to catch a 'barra' in the tender boats. After lunch you'll arrive at the impressive Montgomery Reef. The reef is a unique eco-system that must be seen to be believed with its 140 square miles of coral reef rising out of the ocean with the ebb and flow of the tide. Water cascades from the reef as the tide falls exposing a glimpse of the world beneath the glassy surface. Turtles, dugong, manta rays and other marine life call this special ecosystem home. Helicopter and tender boat adventures are options today or just take in the views of the reef from the deck with a wine in hand.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day6 True North Kimberley Montgomery Reef

            Day 4

            The scenery will capture you today as you cruise along the Prince Regent River before pulling up at the base of the King Cascades waterfall. View the falls as they rain down from above, and later explore by tender boat and on foot with the chance to hike to a swimming hole. The helicopter is another option to experience the pristine Prince Regent National Park by air.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day5 True North Kimberley King Cascade

            Day 5

            A day of choice, whether it be joining an early morning fishing expedition, or one of the adventure boats with the ship’s naturalist, or seeing some rock art – and all before another helicopter flight to a remote spot that you’ll never forget; land alongside a crystal clear billabong for a picnic lunch.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day4 TRUE NORTH Tender Vessels

            Day 6

            Journey along the magnificent Hunter River today, a river system lined with red cliffs and rainforest beyond. The Hunter is about as far away from civilisation as you can get in Australia, and the area is known for its large crocodile population and mud-crabs nesting in the dense mangroves. Activities today include fishing, bird-watching, mud-crabbing and simply exploring where few have been before. Join one of the expedition boats for a closer look, and we highly recommend the hike to Jackson Falls.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day 7

            Wake up to views over the turquoise waters of Swift Bay and an early breakfast before a search for the black-lip oyster. Savour their unique taste direct from the rock before heading to some Wandjina galleries nearby. Keep watch over the waters to spot some light game species that inhabit this area such as queenfish, giant trevally and mackerel. Next is a unique opportunity to sip a glass of sparkling trying on exquisite pieces of diamond and pearl jewellery, created by the artistes at Allure, Jewels of the Kimberley and Kimberley Fine Diamonds.

            Day 8

            The Mitchell River is the destination of the day, where the adventure boats head up to the scenic Surveyors Creek – a great place for a swim. We'll join the fishermen to hunt for the elusive barramundi and there will be more opportunities for helicopter flights over ancient land including the spectacular Mitchell Falls. Join the crew for cocktail hour before experiencing another unique dining experience.
