Roughly 15,000 people live year-round in Broome perched on the edge of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The population swells to over 45,000 during the tourist season as people from all over the world are drawn to the natural splendors of the Dampier Peninsula. Broome is surrounded by lush green mangroves and mudflats along Roebuck Bay, but the interior is dry and rugged like much of the Kimberley coast. The town of Broome started up around a nascent pearling industry that attracted Japanese, Chinese, Malay and Aboriginal divers to the area in an interesting mix of cultures.

Roughly 800 islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago surround and shelter the impressive spread of Yampi Sound (from the aboriginal word for water, “Yampee”). The area was named in 1821 by Captain Phillip Parker King, in commemoration of William Dampier’s visit in 1688. Pearlers began visiting the area in the late 1800s, and more recently mining operators established open-cut mines on Koolan Island on the east side of the Sound. Some of the richest iron ore in the world is extracted here to this day. The coastline of Yampi shows rock layers wildly twisted and contorted into great folds.
The Hunter River is home to an immense mangrove system surrounded by soaring red sandstone cliffs. Narrow mangrove channels shelter numerous bird species, mudskippers, fiddler crabs and the infamous saltwater crocodile; the most aggressive crocodile species known to man. Naturalist Island at the mouth of the river has a stunning stretch of sandy beach that makes a perfect landing site for small helicopters that can pick up visitors wishing to explore some of the Kimberley’s vast interior.
The King George Falls is one of the Kimberley’s most magnificent natural wonders. At 80 meters (260 feet), the thundering spectacle of twin cascades are among the highest in Australia. The river weaves through an amazing landscape of near vertical red rock formations and a parade of wildlife — carnivorous saltwater crocodiles and amazing birdlife, including giant raptors and the Brahminy Kite.
Wyndham is a small settlement with the spirit of a Kimberley outback township. It was established in 1886 with the Halls Creek gold rush and sits on the Cambridge Gulf where several rivers converge. Today Wyndham has a population of roughly 900 people and operates largely as a port exporting cattle, servicing the mining industry and hosting a few small ships. For these vessels Wyndham is a gateway to the breathtaking Bungle Bungle mountain range and the nearby Ord River. The Bungle Bungle Mountains in Purnululu National Park are now a World Heritage Site.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Saumlaki is a regional capital city on the island of Yamdena, the main island of the unique Tanimbar archipelago, located in Indonesia between Papua New Guinea and the northern coast of Australia. The Tanimbar Islands have a distinct culture with still-vibrant traditions. They actively produce traditional crafts such as richly-colored ikat cloth and carved wooden statutes, and local residents still carry on their own centuries-old forms of music and dance.

Darwin is Australia's most colorful, and exotic, capital city. Surrounded on three sides by the turquoise waters of the Timor Sea, the streets are lined with tropical flowers and trees. Warm and dry in winter, hot and steamy in summer, it's a relaxed and casual place, as well as a beguiling blend of tropical frontier outpost and Outback hardiness. Thanks to its close proximity to Southeast Asia and its multicultural population it also seems more like Asia than the rest of Australia. Darwin is a city that has always had to fight for its survival.

Temps forts du Voyage

Feel the thunder of waterfalls, explore spectacular gorges, witness variations of Aboriginal rock art, and look for West Australia’s wildlife in destinations that in many cases are accessible only by ship. Cruise by Zodiac through an untamed wilderness to spot wallabies, crocodiles, and osprey nests ashore, and listen to expert interpretations of ancient rock paintings first drawn by the traditional land owners eons ago. Explore narrow channels, searching for White-bellied Sea-Eagles, Black-necked Storks, kingfishers, kites, and other regal birds in the mangroves and mud flats. Throughout the voyage learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable on board Expedition Team. 

Voyage Highlights: 

Buccaneer Archipelago, Australia – 
The Buccaneer Archipelago has of over 800 islands and was created millions of years ago by erosion-causing tidal changes. The region’s tides present amazing spectacles that can create seemingly horizontal waterfalls at Talbot Bay. Watch reefs and islands come out of the ocean, only to have them disappear before your eyes again.

Hunter River, Australia – 
Hunter River is home to an immense mangrove system and soaring red sandstone cliffs. Narrow mangrove channels serve as shelter to numerous bird species, mudskippers, fiddler crabs and the enigmatic saltwater crocodile. Close by is the lovely stretch of beach at Naturalist Island, from where optional helicopter flights to Mitchell Falls launch. This incredible four-tiered waterfall is worth the ride!

King George River, Australia – 
Arrive by Zodiac to the impressive King George Falls, West Australia’s highest twin waterfalls considered some of the top waterfalls in the world. These magnificent falls drop 80 meters straight down ancient sandstone cliffs into a dramatic gorge, a sight that makes the King George Falls a highlight of visiting the Kimberley Coast.

Wyndham is the oldest and northernmost town in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, serving as a key port in the 1886 gold rush. From Wyndham, see the incredible natural sandstone towers of the Bungle Bungle Range from the air, or cruise up the scenic, winding Ord River by local boat. Land at Kununurra, the largest town in the area (population just over 4,500) that is nestled between scenic hills and ranges for which the Kimberley Region is known.
