The Southern Kimberley Experience is a 7 night Kimberley cruise that explores the best of the Kimberley Coast from Broome to the Mitchell Plateau, essentially half our 13 night Kimberley Classic Adventure itinerary. You will fly over the most spectacular scenic wilderness in the Southern Kimberley in a 4 seater light aircraft, to arrive at Mitchell Plateau in the heart of the Kimberley, or if you take the opposite direction you will depart from the Mitchell Plateau to fly back to Broome. From Mitchell Plateau you will be met by our helicopter pilot who will fly you over the stunning Mitchell Falls on the way to land aboard MV Great Escape in the beautiful Hunter River wilderness.
Explore Careening Bay where the infamous Mermaid Boab tree stands. Phillip Parker King, one of the original explorers who mapped the Kimberley Coast, careened his vessel HMC Mermaid here and carved her initials into the tree. Cruise through the Prince Regent Nature Reserve and swim at the tranquil waterfalls at Camp Creek, surrounded by a captivating landscape. Then visit King Cascades with its exquisite rock pools and waterfalls. You will cruise through historic Camden Harbour and land at the site of one of the first European settlements to Australia back in 1864-1865. Explore the stunning expanse of Montgomerey Reef with its hundreds of turtles and extraordinary marine life, trek to picturesque Raft Point to view ancient Aboriginal rock-art galleries, swim at Ruby Falls, and have the opportunity to experience the famous Horizontal Waterfalls from the air.
This itinerary is also available in reverse – cruising from Broome to the Mitchell Plateau and then flying back to Broome.
Day 3 & 4
Montgomery Reef & Raft Point
The options include viewing a majestic waterfall and swimming at Ruby Falls, fishing at 3-Ways, taking a cruise down the spectacular Sale River, viewing Aboriginal art galleries and enjoying a barbeque lunch on the sandy beach under a rainforest canopy. One evening will be spent under the magnificent Raft Point before we encounter Montgomery Reef. Viewing the reef from the aerial perspective in the helicopter is also a highlight of this adventure.
Once back onboard, we’ll all enjoy a scenic cruise weaving past many islands and through the Koolan Island gap, before relaxing in one last freshwater pool before we head back to Broome, past Cape Leveque.
