Iconic Kimberley: 10 nights Darwin to Broome or vice versa
Embark aboard Le Bellot for an 11-day expedition cruise along the Kimberley Coast between Darwin and Broome. At around two-thirds the size of France, The Kimberley region is one of the last unspoiled regions on the planet.
In one of the most picturesque parts of the region, the Hunter River, you will see wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds. The highpoint of this cruise will undoubtedly be the discovery of the King George River and the majestic Twin Falls, the highest falls in Western Australia. You will also visit Collier Bay, where you will be able to admire the Montgomery Reef, home to vast expanses of lagoons and immense coral reefs.
