On the water

Kimberley cruising

A room with an ever-changing and mind-blowing view of pristine wilderness.

Cruising the coastal wilderness of the Kimberley brings some of the most awe-inspiring and pristine scenery on Earth right outside the window of your luxury cabin, every single day. Sheer pindan cliffs, rising dramatically out of a crystal clear ocean. Dramatic gorges carved by the forces of nature over millions of years. Ancient Aboriginal rock art hidden from the western world for thousands of years. Cascading waterfalls, horizontal waterfalls and inviting rock pools. A thousand untouched islands, stretching to the horizon. A network of creeks with an abundance of wildlife and unrivalled fishing opportunities. Ocean sunsets and a feast of fine Kimberley produce.

How to get there

Cruises depart from Broome and Wyndham, with longer Kimberley cruise itineraries also arriving into and departing from Darwin. See below for a list of Kimberley expedition cruise companies.

Best time to travel

Kimberley expedition cruises operate during the cooler months, from April to October. Cruises early in the season may capture the Kimberley Coast’s waterfalls in full flow after the heavy rains of the wet season. Booking a year in advance is recommended.
