Welcome aboard in Broome
You may wish to stroll around the decks, enjoy the fresh sea air or just sit back and relax while observing the amazing colours of our northern coastal beaches drift by as we head north passing Cape Leveque and King Sound.
Buccaneer Archipelago, Talbot Bay – Silica Beach-Crocodile Creek- Horizontal Falls
After a scrumptious lunch we’ll head to Talbot Bay and experience the Kimberley’s most amazing natural phenomenon, the Horizontal Falls, an intense tidal current that hurtles through two narrow coastal gorges, the massive tidal movement creates a waterfall effect as water squeezes through the narrow cliff passages. Tonight we will anchor in Talbot Bay and enjoy one of many spectacular Kimberley sunsets.
Red Cone Creek – Ruby Falls- Raft Point
After lunch we will head back towards the mainland, motor past Raft Point and make our way to Red Cone Creek. We may have an opportunity to catch some Mud Crabs before we head upstream to Ruby Falls for a fresh water swim. We will spend the evening anchored in Red Cone Creek.
Montgomery Reef – Sale River
Camden Sound – Sheep Island
As you survey the landscape our guide will tell of the hardships endured by these early settlers.
Heading out past Augustus Island we will make our way to Hanover Bay for a leisurely swim and beach walk before heading towards the Prince Regent River.
Prince Regent River, King Cascades Bradshaw Art
For the adventurous there is an opportunity to climb to the top of the falls for a fresh water swim. After exploring Kings Cascade we will then travel a small way upstream to visit a Bradshaw art site situated high above the water on the northern bank of the river before making our way to safe anchorage and an overnight stay in the river.
Prince Regent River – Camp Creek
Another spot we will visit today is Camp Creek. A small trek across sand and rock will take us to a wide flowing water hole, no crocs to worry about here just fresh, clear water with small eddies and tumbling currents. After a refreshing swim we will make our way to St George Basin passing Mt Waterloo and Mt Trafalgar then heading north once again to Careening Bay where we will anchor overnight.
After a cooked breakfast back on board Odyssey we will depart for Prince Frederick Harbour, the mouth of the Hunter and Roe Rivers. Once anchored at the mouth of the Roe River we will board Homer for a scenic cruise upstream to a secluded freshwater swimming hole. Here at the headwaters we will stop for a picnic lunch and spend some time swimming, exploring Bradshaw Art and perhaps some Barra fishing.
Bigge Island and Mudge Bay
This afternoon brings exploring on the beach walk on one of the remote beaches there. Anchored securely for the evening we can enjoy pre dinner drinks whist watching another spectacular Kimberley Sunset.
Beautiful cruising as we navigate our way through the many Islands to an anchorage close to Jar Island for the evening.
East Vansittart Bay – DC3 wreckage – Drysdale River
Before lunch we will depart Vansittart Bay our next destination, the Drysdale River in Napier Broome Bay. Once at the mouth of the river we will board Homer and explore further up this river system. We have a late steam to Glycosmis Bay, our anchorage for the night.
Koolama Bay – King George Falls
The view from the top of these falls is spectacular to say the least. A visit to Batman Cave is next to follow on what has been a memorable day for us all before departing Koolama Bay for the Berkeley River.
Berkeley River – Cambridge Gulf
At the Berkeley we will head upstream viewing magnificent waterfalls along the way before a refreshing swim.
We’ll have lunch back on board Odyssey before departing the Berkeley River and head towards Cambridge Gulf. It’s a nonstop journey as we make our way south east towards Wyndham.
Ord River – Wyndham
This is only a suggested itinerary. Because the Kimberley region has vast tidal movements we may be unable to venture into all the sights mentioned above, however, there are many more spectacular sights not mentioned all along the Kimberley coast and Odyssey Expedition will endeavour to visit as many fascinating sights as possible.
