Day 1

Arrive onboard Phoenix One to afternoon canapés and a cocktail before we depart Broome to cruise along the iconic Cable Beach and pindan cliff faces, famous for views of the colourful Kimberley sunsets. Settle in for the evening as we venture up around the cape to the Buccaneer Archipelago, as your Chef prepares the first night’s gourmet cuisine and the crew prepare the beverages.

thumbnail

Day 2

Wake up amongst the stunning sandstone islands of Yampi Sound, welcoming you to the start of your Kimberley adventure. With the opportunity to explore Crocodile Creek waterhole by tender and a walk to the top waterhole for a swim before enjoying the diverse scenery and changing landscape from on board Phoenix One as we cruise to Horizontal Falls.

Described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest wonders of the natural world”; Horizontal Falls 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.

thumbnail

Day 3

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 tender to explore we will 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.

thumbnail

Day 4

Deception Bay is known for its fishing and Black Tip Kimberley Oysters. Heading out on a scenic excursion to explore and enjoy one of the many freshwater swimming holes you will get the opportunity to try your hand at catching and gathering dinner or if in luxk,an intimate viewing of Humpback Whales that frequent these waters in season.

thumbnail

Day 5

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; famous as the discoverer of the incredible Bradshaw rock art now more commonly referred to as Gwion Gwion. At Camp Creek head out for a spot of wildlife watching, drop a line in search of Barramundi and Mangrove Jack or a hike to Camp Creek waterhole.

thumbnail

Day 6

Named after Philip Parker King, a naval explorer, 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 the famous Gwion Gwion rock art on the northern banks before catching the tide to Careening Bay.

thumbnail

Day 7

In beautiful Careening Bay we visit the heritage-listed boab tree. 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.

The second largest island in the Bonaparte Archipelago; Biggie Island is composed of weathered sandstone and dolerites forming a rugged terrain. Named Wuyurru in the Wunambal language, the islands caves and cliffs are dotted with more indigenous rock art depicting examples of first contact between the Uunguu people and foreigners and Wandjina figures, illustrating cloud and rain spirits from Aboriginal ancestry.

thumbnail

Day 8

Cruising the Mitchell River to the Mitchell Falls with the opportunity to charter a helicopter for an incredible scenic flight over this dramatic terrain. Mitchell River offers the option to drop a line to land a big Barramundi or haul up the crab pot for a River to Plate feast. Further up Surveyors Creek take a dip in the refreshing tranquil pools.

thumbnail

Day 9

Picturesque Vansittart Bay is home to some of the world’s most prized pearls as well as the abandoned body of a World War II DC3 war plane, scuttled on the salt pan in 1942. Despite enduring the heat, fire and storms of the Kimberley, the wreckage is remarkably well preserved, and this piece of history makes for some great photography. Explore the many coves of Vansittart Bay where we will discover more Gwion Gwion drawings, some of which have been dated at over 17,000 years old.

thumbnail

Day 10

Cruising through the towering sandstone cliffs of King George River to the famous twin falls. We edge Phoenix One in for a closer look at the falls that put on a mighty display after the ‘wet season’ rains. An optional hike to the peak of the falls for a swim in the top pool and breathtaking vistas is well worth the effort.

Even during a ‘dry spell’ King George Falls also known as Twin falls offer spectacular scenery and photo opportunities.

thumbnail

Day 11

Your final day in the Kimberley will include a leisurely cruise up Berkley River taking in the impressive sandstone cliffs and wildlife. Before watching as your mallard float plane lands in the waters of Tranquil Bay.
