The Kimberley is an ancient land shaped by the powerful forces of nature. And the best way to explore it is with Coral Expeditions. Covering more than 150,000 square miles, which is larger than Sweden and about the size of California, yet home to just 30,000 people, the Kimberley is truly one of the world’s last and most beautiful wilderness areas.
Australian cruise company Coral Expeditions has been taking guests to some of the most stunning, undiscovered regions of Australasia for more than 30 years. Small vessels are key to the Coral Expedition experience. As well as a more intimate experience, guests benefit from tailor-made itineraries inaccessible to larger vessels, encouraging the adventurous spirit of a Coral Expeditions’ cruise.
Coral Expeditions’ 10-night Kimberley itinerary captures the magic of the region’s towering rock ridges, silent gorges and plunging waterfalls. Experience the thrill of the unique tidal phenomenon of the Horizontal Waterfalls; marvel at the plunging 262-foot King George Falls while weaving between spectacular cliffs in a trademark ‘Xplorer’ tender; learn about the ancient cultures of the Indigenous people; and keep an eye out for native wildlife such as crocodiles, humpback whales, rock wallabies, sea turtles and birdlife.
In 2019 Coral Expeditions will welcome a third ship to the Kimberley experience. Joining 46-passenger catamaran Coral Expeditions I and Coral Discoverer, the modern monohull with a private-yacht feel, the brand-new Coral Adventurer will raise the bar with two tenders and six zodiacs taking you even closer to unspoilt Australia.
Once the Kimberley sparks your passion for remote destinations, Coral Expeditions can help with itineraries throughout Australasia including Cape York, Arnhem Land, Tasmania, Great Barrier Reef, Torres Strait Islands and the South Pacific.
