Sometimes the most beautiful sites are sliding by as you travel by boat, particularly when you are on board a cruise in a place as full of photo opportunities as the Kimberley. Capturing those moments while you’re moving isn’t always easy, and it may be frustrating when the subjects of your photos are blurred with the background sharp. But with the right shutter speed and a few tips, you can control the effect of your snaps. You can even purposefully go for some artistic blurring for unique effects. Here’s a handy guide to help you take control of your photos, and take snaps that will make your memories last a lifetime. Follow these simple instructions, and you’ll be recording the rugged beauty of the Kimberley landscapes from the deck of your cruise ship with ease.

Birdwatchers from Australia and all around the world travel to Western Australia to view the diverse and abundant birdlife found in this vast land, which encompasses an area larger than Western Europe. In Western Australia, more than five hundred species of bird have been chronicled and if you are planning to birdwatch, there are a number of essential destinations to have on your list. Most birdwatcher enthusiasts will initially fly into Perth where there are a number of bird watching sites. The best place to bird watch, however, is in the north of the state in what is known as the Kimberley. The following list will help you decide where best to observe the magnificent birdlife Western Australia has to offer.

The Kimberley is a truly unique travel destination - one which is hard to imagine unless you have witnessed it for yourself. Our Senior Cruise Specialist, Ross Quigly, recounts his experience of this magical place. “I wonder what the rest of the world is doing on their Tuesday afternoon?” one of the passengers in our helicopter Skyped through their headset. “Is it Tuesday?” was another response. “And exactly what ‘rest of the world’ is that anyway?” she joked. Our group of flight-seeing enthusiasts gazed to the west from a thousand or so feet up to soak in the vista of the sunset - now deep blood orange - closing yet another spectacular Kimberley day. So if you’re thinking of really getting ‘a world away’ from it all, the border to another world starts in Western Australia.

The Kimberley is located on the northernmost part of Western Australia, spanning an area three times the size of England, or almost 421,451 square kilometres. With a population of 40,000 people, there are fewer people per kilometre in the Kimberley than almost any other place on Earth. The Kimberley is as diverse as its visitors, and offers rugged forges, powerful waterways, and a clear, luminous ocean. Enjoy a sunset camel ride in Broome, take a 4WD along the Gibb River Road to Kununurra, or visit the Bungle Bungles of Purnululu National Park. Broome, the main town in the Kimberley, is also gateway to the remote and beautiful Dampier Peninsula. If you stay long enough, you may be tempted to experience it all. If you don’t have time for that, here are 5 must dos for your time in the Kimberley.
