            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.

            Included: D

            Note: all cruise itineraries are subject to conditions and changes as determined by the Ship's Captain; this is an example itinerary only.

            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 there's the option to visit the white sand Silica Beach or venture out in a tender boat, before setting sail for Doubtful Bay as the day draws to a close.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day7 True North The Kimberley Excursion 1

            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

            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

            Day4 TRUE NORTH Tender Vessels

            Day 6

            Today you will have an opportunity to see the ‘Bradshaws’ ancient rock art site featuring some of the oldest paintings known to man. Opt to heli-hike the Kimberley iconic Eagle Falls for breathtaking aerial views and a delicious destination lunch. The tenders will be busy exploring local beaches and rivers today before the group meets up to share tales over drinks on the deck. Tonight you'll set sail for Koolama Bay.

            Included: B - L - D

            Day3 True North eagle falls

            Day 7

            On your last full day you will encounter one of the Kimberley's must-see attractions, the mighty King George River and Twin Falls. Here you'll anchor at the base of the Twin Falls and find endless places to explore. Climb the gorge walls or take the helicopter to the top of the falls for a cruise highlight. A walk at Tranquil Bay is also an option this afternoon. Enjoy sunset drinks and dinner as the stars light up the Kimberley night sky.

            Included: B - L - D
