The Kimberley is a beguiling wilderness of UNESCO World Heritage-listed rock formations rising skyward, weathered karst systems that have harbored ancient Aboriginal rock paintings for millennia and thousand-island archipelagos that spread out like confetti on water.
Seasonal rainfall flows from the outback and spills over the very crust of the Australian continent. It feeds some of the biggest tropical tides in the world, which in turn create the largest and most spectacular pearls on the planet.
Just as it exists in dreamtime stories, the Kimberley lingers in the minds of those yearning to discover Australia’s last true wilderness. A trip to the Kimberley is one of the world’s genuine, once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Combined with the accessibility and exclusivity of a cruise boat journey, it simply doesn’t get any better.
