Set sail for the wild and vast landscapes of Australia’s Kimberley coast on a luxury expedition! In one of the most picturesque parts of the region, the Hunter River, you will see wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds. One of the highlights of this expedition is undoubtedly the time spent on the King George River where you’ll reach the majestic Twin Falls, the highest falls in Western Australia. In Collier Bay, you will be able to admire Montgomery Reef, home to vast expanses of lagoons and immense coral reefs. Jar Island will reveal the 12,000-year-old Gwion Gwion Rock style art; you’ll enjoy the large migration of Humpback Whales from your ship’s deck or Zodiac®, and birdwatching will reach a completely new level on the Lacepede Islands. Welcome to the Kimberley!
