The region known simply as The Kimberley takes its evocative name from its most imposing landmark; an ancient mountain range visible from the rugged sea coast. Covering more than 400,000 square kilometres (an area three times larger than England) in North West Australia, it is a place universally acknowledged as the world’s last - and possibly most beautiful - wilderness.

Oceanic Discovery Gorge

The Kimberley yields images to fill the frames of a lifetime. It is a place of magnificent vistas created by towering rock ridges, silent secluded gorges, wide savannah plains and waterfalls which defy both nature and belief.

Discover Broome with Coral Princess Cruises, the still exotic capital of The Kimberley that was once the pearling capital of the world and is clawing back its claim by once again delivering the bounty of the seas to visitors from around the globe.

Discover the heartland of Australia’s northernmost unspoilt outback. The Kimberley is a completely unique experience.


Map

A 10-night exploration voyage to the Kimberley has so many highlights, it's hard to know where to begin. Your expedition cruise begins from either Darwin - the capital city of The Northern Territory, or Broome - famous for its beauty and cultured pearls. Both are unique frontier centres and are the gateways to the magnificent Kimberley wilderness.

Experienced, highly informative Expedition Leaders and Guest Lecturers will supervise the expedition itinerary maximising the experiences offered on their shore excursions. Sensitive arrangements are also made allowing guests to absorb the cultural remnants of one of the world's most ancient people, the Australian Aborigine.

A specially designed excursion vessel allows you to explore the gorges of the Mitchell, King George, Prince Regent and Hunter Rivers. For the more adventurous, optional helicopter flights to the Mitchell Plateau are also available. The abundance of bird life and native wildlife including the salt-water crocodile make every moment of the expedition unique. The hundreds of islands in The Buccaneer Archipelago, the tidal phenomena at Montgomery Reef and the extraordinary horizontal waterfalls near Talbot Bay ...The Kimberley has it all.

You access The Kimberley, one of the world's most remote areas, aboard one of their expedition cruise vessels, Coral Princess or Oceanic Discoverer. Shallow draft and manoeuverability make these ships ideal to safely navigate the mighty rivers and scenic inlets of The Kimberley.

Both vessels offer facilities you would expect of larger ships. A choice of room grade and bedding configuration, all air-conditioned with en-suites, cocktail bars, spa pool, sundeck, resource library, lecture lounge, telephone/fax, Internet booth and more.

They offer the choice - the preference is yours.

Join Coral Princess Cruises on your Kimberley expedition cruise to the remote Australian Outback.

Once discovered, never forgotten - "Dream, Explore, Discover".
