8 Day Itinerary

  1. Day 1 - Broome

    Your “welcome aboard” the magnificent True North is in the pearling port of Broome. Embarkation is at 1700 – time for a cocktail with your fellow adventurers before departing at approximately 1830.
    Dinner is served shortly after leaving port for the overnight cruise to Yampi Sound.

    Meals Included: Dinner

  2. Day 2 - Doubtful Bay

    Awake to the majestic Kimberley and savour an irresistible True North breakfast as we glide past Cockatoo and Koolan Islands – our attentive crew will be happy to introduce the colourful histories of both!

    Then it’s time to ‘personally’ introduce you to a Kimberley icon – The Horizontal Falls.

    Experience the awesome power of the region’s huge tidal range in an exhilarating tender ride.

    Take a refreshing swim and then walk on the squeaky white sands of Silica Beach. Or join one of the adventure boats on a sightseeing expedition to Whirlpool Pass, an aptly named further demonstration of the Kimberley’s powerful tides.

    Before you know it, your first day onboard will be coming to an end– but there’s still time to select a fine wine and to enjoy a leisurely evening meal as we cruise to Doubtful Bay.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  3. Day 3 - Montgomery Reef

    This morning is devoted to exploring the Sale River. Join naturalists and adventurers alike as we ‘ride the tide’ on a classic river expedition. For those who can’t wait one minute longer, the mouth of the Sale offers the first opportunity to ‘land a Barra’.

    Enjoy lunch as we weigh anchor and cruise for another Kimberley icon– Montgomery Reef! Montgomery is a unique eco-system that must be seen to be believed – and see it you will – as 140 square miles of coral reef rises out of the ocean right before your very eyes! Water cascades from the reef as the tide falls exposing a privileged glimpse of another world! Turtles, dugong, crocodiles and every imaginable sea creature abounds.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  4. Day 4 - Prince Regent River

    The scenery will astound and there are some not-to-be-missed fishing spots as the True North graces the majestic Prince Regent River. This morning’s target species include delectable mangrove jack and fingermark bream. At King Cascade we will manoeuvre the True North right under the falls. Then it’s time for more ‘adventure in the tender’ – a chance to stretch the laces on your hiking boots and an opportunity to swim in yet another picture perfect billabong, or perhaps you’d like to venture further upriver to visit the spectacular ‘Amphitheatre’ waterfall.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  5. Day 5 - Hunter River

    If you think the Regent was good – wait till you see the Hunter! With stunning red cliffs set behind rainforest and mangroves - the Hunter River is yet another awesome setting for fishing, mud crabbing, bird watching and just simply exploring. Enjoy an exhilarating hike to the hidden Jackson Falls and there’s even more splendour from the helicopter! Hopefully we’ll have time for a sunset drink on Naturaliste Island before an overnight cruise to Vansittart Bay.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  6. Day 6 - Vansittart Bay

    Today there will be an opportunity to see the “Bradshaws” – ancient rock art that pre-dates other examples of Aboriginal culture. In fact, they are possibly the oldest ‘paintings’ known to man. Vansittart Bay also has a reputation for producing monster mackerel the tenders will also be busy exploring the local beaches and creeks. Overnight we cruise to Koolama Bay.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  7. Day 7 - King George River

    Yet another mighty Kimberley river – The King George. As soon as the tide is high enough, we’ll cross the sand bars at the mouth to reveal even more breathtaking river vista. Then our journey upstream will take us to the very ‘jewel in the crown’ – The King George Falls. Here we anchor at the base of the Twin Falls and you will find endless places to explore. Climb, or take the helicopter, to the top of the falls for a cruise highlight. Just the thought of leaving this magnificence will inspire mutiny! Learn about the bombing of a state-ship during WWII, then take a stroll at Tranquil Bay before we continue onto the frontier port of Wyndham.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  8. Day 8 - Wyndam

    Your courtesy coach will arrive at approximately 0800 hours for transfer to Kununurra and your crew will already be looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the mighty True North.

    Meals Included: Breakfast
