Kimberley Cruises - Full Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Darwin to Prince Frederick Harbour

Your adventure starts on board your Mallard Float Plane transfer in the morning from Darwin as you fly over the rugged terrain of the Kimberley. Landing in Prince Frederick Harbour on the water, your superyacht crew will greet you and assist to transfer your luggage onto Phoenix One, where your journey will start cruising through Hunter River viewing stunning scenery with vibrant sandstone cliffs, ancient rock art and impressive crocodiles.

Day 2

Hunter River – Careening Bay

Waking up in the beautiful Careening Bay landscape to explore onshore, we visit the heritage-listed boab tree, originally blazed in 1820 which still grows today. This was once the site of beach explorer vessel HMS Mermaid, captained by Phillip Parker King. During the ten days at Careening Bay before the crew managed to refloat the vessel, a crew member found the boab tree where he carved the famous graffiti “HMC Mermaid 1820” into the corky bark.

Day 3

Prince Regent – King Cascade

Named after Philip Parker King, King Cascade waterfalls are a spectacular sight in full flow with cascading water surrounded by lush ferns. After a climb to the top of the falls to soak in the beautiful freshwater pools we can explore the river finding more famous Gwion Gwion rock art on the Northern banks before catching the tide to Camden Harbour.

Day 4

Camden Harbour

Historic Camden Harbour settlement was once promised as the next Sydney Harbour to the first European settlers in the Kimberley; documented in “The Three Ships” available in the onboard library. We will enjoy a scenic cruise through to Port George and Treachery Passage to Saint George’s Basin. We pass Mount Trafalgar and Waterloo Basin, home of Sir Joseph Bradshaw’s pastural lease; the first European to document the Gwion Gwion rock drawings in 1891.

Day 5

Montgomery Reef-

The largest inland reef formation in Australia, Montgomery Reef is a must-see feature of the Kimberley. This amazing living reef system spanning 80km was once home to the local Yawijibaya Tribe. Each day multitudes of turtles, dugongs and rays can be spotted feeding alongside the reef as it peeks up some 5 meters allowing water to cascade down its channels back into the ocean. After a trip up Trevally Alley in the tenders to explore we have the chance for a swim at Deception Bay.

Day 6

Doubtful Bay

Wake to the phenomenon of Horizontal Falls, described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest wonders of the natural world”. Experience incredible tidal movements up to 10m creating a ‘horizontal’ waterfall between the cliffs as water surges through the narrow gap creating vast tidal whirlpools.

After the thrill of the falls, we cruise to Doubtful Bay. Exploring Red Cone Creek by tender, we will adventure to either Ruby or Sapphire Falls; hidden gems nestled between the mangroves to enjoy a dip, with the opportunity to drop in a crab pot to catch our dinner.

Day 7

Buccaneer Archipelago – Talbot Bay – Broome

Exploring Talbot Bay and exploring Crock Creek by tender in the morning with the opportunity for a last swim before we cruise to Cygnet Bay for a private tour of the oldest operating pearl farm, offering insight into some of the world’s most sought-after pearls. Finally you will experience this stunning archipelago from the air as you wave goodbye to the Kimberley flying over Cape Leveque to Broome by light plane to continue your journey home.
