Kimberley Snapshot

For those pressed for time – here is the flagship Kimberley Ultimate itinerary condensed into a single week voyage! The Snapshot itinerary features several Kimberley icons including the King George Falls, the Hunter River, the Prince Regent River, Montgomery Reef and the Horizontal Waterfalls.

This itinerary is provided as example only – prevailing conditions and local arrangements may cause variation. Helicopter flights can be purchased additional to the cruise tariff as a package or individually.

Itinerary 
Night 1: Your ‘Welcome Aboard’ the magnificent TRUE NORTH is in the pearling port of Broome. Embarkation is at 1700 – time for a cocktail with your fellow adventurers before departing at approximately 1830. Dinner is served shortly after leaving port for the overnight cruise to Yampi Sound.
Day 1: Awake to the majestic Kimberley and savour an irresistible True North breakfast as we glide past Cockatoo and Koolan Islands – our attentive crew will be happy to introduce the colourful histories of both! Then it’s time to ‘personally’ introduce you to a Kimberley icon – The Horizontal Falls. Experience the awesome power of the region’s huge tidal range in an exhilarating tender ride and then climb aboard your air conditioned helicopter for a view of the falls that very few experience! Then – you will have hardly had a chance to catch your breath when, for those who can’t wait one minute longer, Leadline Creek will be the first opportunity to ‘land a barra’! Before you know it, your first day onboard will be coming to an end – but there’s still time to select a fine wine and to enjoy a leisurely evening meal as we cruise to Doubtful Bay.
Day 2: This morning is devoted to exploring the Sale River. Fish the mouth for barra and then join naturalists and adventurers alike as we ‘ride the tide’ on a classic river expedition! Enjoy a swim in your very own billabong before returning to the ultimate comfort of the True North. Then, you’ll probably be enjoying lunch as we weigh anchor and cruise for another Kimberley icon – Montgomery Reef! Montgomery is a unique eco-system that must be seen to be believed – and see it you will – as 140 square miles of coral reef rises out of the ocean right before your very eyes! Water cascades from the reef as the tide falls exposing a privileged glimpse of another world! Turtles, dugong, manta rays and every imaginable sea creature abound and the helicopter puts all in perspective!
Day 3:The scenery will astound and there are some not to be missed fishing spots as the True North graces the majestic Prince Regent River. At Kings Cascades we manoeuvre the True North right under the falls. Then it’s time for more ‘adventure in the tender’ – a chance to stretch the laces on your hiking boots and an opportunity to swim in yet another picture perfect billabong. The helicopter will be popular again when the first group of intrepid explorers returns from Jurassic Park!
Day 4:If you think the Regent was good – wait till ya see the Hunter! With stunning red cliffs set behind rainforest and mangroves – the Hunter River is yet another awesome setting for fishing, mud crabbing, bird watching and just simply exploring! Enjoy an exhilarating hike to the hidden Jackson Falls and there’s even more splendour from the helicopter! Hopefully we’ll have time for a sunset drink on Naturaliste Island and then it’s an overnight cruise to Vansittart Bay.
Day 5:Today there will be an opportunity to see the “Bradshaws” – possibly the oldest art known to man. The heli-picnic at Eagle Falls is always a ‘big hit’- enjoy a sumptuous picnic lunch amidst breathtaking scenery. The tenders will also be busy exploring local beaches and creeks. Overnight we cruise to Koolama Bay.
Day 6:Yet another mighty Kimberley river – The King George! As soon as the tide is high enough, we’ll cross the sand bars at the mouth to reveal even more breathtaking river vista. Then our journey upstream will take us to the very ‘jewel in the crown’ – The King George Falls. Here we anchor at the base of the Twin Falls and you will find endless places to explore. Climb, or take the helicopter, to the top of the falls for a cruise highlight. Just the thought of leaving this magnificence will inspire mutiny! Learn about the bombing of a state-ship during WWII, then take a stroll at Tranquil Bay before we continue onto the frontier port of Wyndham.
Day 7: Your courtesy coach will arrive at approximately 0800 hours for transfer to Kununurra and your crew will already be looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the mighty TRUE NORTH!

  

Kimberley Ultimate

For 30 years True North Adventure Cruises’ flagship adventure has been the Kimberley Ultimate! During this time the Kimberley Ultimate has also become known as one of Australia’s most exclusive holiday experiences – and for good reason! The Ultimate is simply 2 weeks of lavish indulgence. All of the Kimberley coast’s iconic attractions are included plus much, much, more and, all is enjoyed at a leisurely pace that ends with guests frequently remarking “that’s the best holiday I have ever had!” If you want not one heli-picnic but two – if you want more time for exploring, more time for fishing and, twice as many mouth-watering dining experiences – then the Kimberley Ultimate is the right TRUE NORTH cruise for you!

This itinerary is provided as example only – prevailing conditions and local arrangements may cause variation. Helicopter flights can be purchased additional to the cruise tariff as a package or individually.

Itinerary 
Night 1: Join our coach transfer in Kununurra – your “welcome aboard” the magnificent TRUE NORTH will be in the frontier town of Wyndham. Embarkation is at 1700 – time for a cocktail with your fellow adventurers before departing at approximately 1830. Dinner is served shortly after leaving port and then it’s an overnight cruise to the King George River.
Day 1: As soon as the tide is high enough, we’ll cross the sand bar at the mouth of the mighty King George to reveal a breathtaking river vista. Our journey upstream will take us to the very ‘jewel in the crown’ – The King George Falls. Here we anchor at the base of the Twin Falls and you will find endless places to explore. Climb or take the helicopter to the top of the falls for a cruise highlight. In the afternoon learn about the history of the wreck of the Koolama and take a stroll at Tranquil Bay.
Day 2: Explore the Drysdale and catch one of our favourite fish, the impressive mangrove jack! The expedition boats will head ‘up-river’ on a barra expedition complete with scones and billy tea! There will also be opportunities to indulge in some beachcombing and in the afternoon, join a scenic flight to Cape Londonderry – the northern most point of Western Australia!
Day 3:Today you will have an opportunity to see the “Bradshaws” – ancient rock art that pre-dates other examples of Aboriginal culture. In fact, they are possibly the oldest ‘paintings’ known to man. The heli-picnic at Eagle Falls is always a ‘big hit’ – another breathtaking helicopter flight and, TRUE NORTH’s mouth-watering fare alongside a picture-perfect waterfall in remote far-north Western Australia! The tenders will be busy exploring local beaches and rivers and, we also visit an isolated site in the rainforest where a lone bomber crashed during WWII.
Day 4:The Mitchell River is renowned for big barra and even bigger crocs! The expedition boats will head up river to the scenic Surveyors Creek – a great place for a swim (no crocs here!) The fishermen will again join the hunt for the elusive barramundi and, there will be more opportunities for helicopter flights over an ancient land including the spectacular Mitchell Falls! Then, join the crew for cocktail hour before experiencing another unique dining experience.
Day 5:No time to dally – after an early morning breakfast it’s time to join the ‘hunt for the black-lip oyster’. In fact – their much-talked about proportions render them not hard to find at all! Savour their unique taste direct from the rock – aside from some freshly squeezed lemon, you can’t get much more a la naturale than that! There are also some excellent examples of both Wandjina and Bradshaw art nearby and the waters are alive with light game species such as queenfish, giant trevally and mackerel. In the afternoon we will explore Voltaire Passage and the many surrounding islands. Back on board, the crew will explain the intriguing process of pearl farming. Then join us for our pearl party! Enjoy a glass of bubbly and a taste of pearl meat, whilst trying on exquisite pieces created by the artistes at Linneys, Jewels of the Kimberley and Kimberley Fine Diamonds.
Day 6:The Roe River – another great opportunity to catch a barra as we explore a river that boasts one of the highest crocodile counts in the Kimberley! The Roe was named after the Surveyor-General of Western Australia – John Septimus Roe conducted numerous expeditions along the Kimberley coast between 1829 & 1849 and the ship’s helicopter will dramatically demonstrate the maze of creeks and endless coast that the early explorers encountered! In the afternoon we will sail into Prince Frederick Harbour and enjoy sunset drinks on Art Island.
Day 7: Wake this morning in the magnificent Hunter River. The Hunter is about as far away as you can get in Australia – a stunning river system that is lined with dense mangrove forests, surrounded by rainforest encrusted mountains and home to man-eating crocodiles. And, the Hunter has it all – fishing, mud crabbing, bird-watching and simply exploring “where few have been before!” Join one of our expedition boats, it’s only a short hike to Jackson Falls and there’s even more splendour from the helicopter!
Day 8:Our first stop this morning is one of the Kimberley’s most historic sites – Phillip Parker King’s boab tree. And then it’s onto the mighty Prince Regent!

At Kings Cascades we manoeuvre the TRUE NORTH right under the falls before another breathtaking helicopter flight to a picnic that you’ll never forget – TRUE NORTH’s mouth- watering cuisine alongside a crystal clear billabong – in one of the most remote places on earth! The helicopter will also be popular when the first group of intrepid explorers returns from Jurassic Park! Then we’ll rejoin the TRUE NORTH for an overnight anchorage off Camp Creek.
Day 9:The early-risers will be treated to a heli-flight with a difference – a champagne sunrise on the top of a mountain! Then it’s time for more ‘adventure in the tenders’ – a chance to stretch the laces on your hiking boots and an opportunity to swim in yet another picture perfect billabong. The more adventurous will use the helicopter to fish our most secret billabongs and everyone will find their own special place in the mighty Regent.
Day 10: This morning is devoted to exploring the Sale River. Fish the mouth for barra and then join naturalists and adventurers alike as we ‘ride the tide’ on a classic river expedition! Enjoy a swim in your very own billabong before returning to the ultimate comfort of the TRUE NORTH. You will probably be enjoying lunch as we weigh anchor and set sail for Montgomery Reef!

Water cascades from the reef as the tide falls exposing a privileged glimpse of another world! Turtles, dugong, manta rays and every imaginable sea creature abound and the helicopter puts all in perspective!
Day 11:Start the day with some more hot fishing action – this time at “Three Ways”. A short lunchtime cruise will deliver all aboard to the impressive silhouette of Raft Point. Here, join crew and guest alike for a moderate climb to an art gallery with a difference and, the well-preserved Raft Point Wandjina paintings.

A Kimberley Wilderness Cruise with more time for fishing! Stalk elusive barramundi when conditions are at their best. Arm-wrestle giant trevally, lure smashing mackerel and ‘fine-eaters’ such as mangrove jack and fingermark. And, at the same time keep everyone in the gang happy with stunning sojourns to many of the Kimberley coast’s iconic destinations.

This itinerary is provided as example only – prevailing conditions and local arrangements may cause variation. Helicopter flights can be purchased additional to the cruise tariff as a package or individually.

Barra Bonanza North Itinerary

Itinerary 
Night 1: Your “welcome aboard” the magnificent True North is in the frontier port of Wyndham. Embarkation is at 1700 – time for a cocktail with your fellow adventurers before departing at approximately 1730. Then introduce yourself to the delights of TRUE NORTH’s revered dining saloon as we begin an overnight cruise to Cape Domett.
Day 1:

Let the action begin! The expedition boats will be away early for our first ‘crack at the fish!’ Your guides will take the expedition boats deep into the mangroves on this eastern side of the Cambridge Gulf where hopefully it will be time for an early introduction to one of the Kimberley’s most famous residents – the mighty barramundi! Fingers crossed we can lure some of these prized fish into the expedition boats for some even more-prized photo opportunities!

After lunch trolling in the Cape Domett area is likely to produce hefty pelagics such as arm-wrenching trevally and lure smacking mackerel. A couple of good-sized goldens and some leaping queenfish will open the sashimi account!
Day 2:

In the morning we’ll target barramundi, golden trevally and reef species in Jade Creek and Atlantis Bay.

Then as soon as the tide is high enough we’ll cross the sand bars at the mouth of the mighty King George! Our journey upstream will thereafter reveal a breathtaking river vista and, the very ‘jewel in the crown’ – The King George Falls! Here we anchor at the base of the falls and you will find endless places to explore. Climb, or take the helicopter to the top of the falls for a cruise highlight.

If time and tide permit, a heli-fish in the revered waters of Nulla Nulla can sometimes produce once in a lifetime encounters with ravenous barramundi. And after all the day’s action is complete – relax with a much-deserved beverage as a blazing Kimberley sun slowly sinks into the sea!
Day 3:

Wake this morn to find the TRUE NORTH at anchor in Vansittart Bay and join an early morning expedition to see the “Bradshaws” – possibly the oldest art known to man. The expedition boats will also visit Rocky Cove and Wade Creek in search of barramundi, fingermark bream and mangrove jack.

The heli-picnic at Eagle Falls is always a ‘big hit’ – enjoy a sumptuous picnic lunch amidst breathtaking scenery.

Whilst you are away the TRUE NORTH will move to the Osborn Islands and after a ‘day at the falls’ the keenest on-board can head back-out for a late afternoon session with the mackies!
Day 4:

There’s so much to see and do in the Mitchell River – we have allocated 2 days to explore this icon of the Kimberley!

The ‘Mitchell’ is renowned for big barra and even bigger crocs! The expedition boats will head up-stream to scenic Surveyors Creek – a great place for a swim (no crocs here!) The fishers will continue the hunt for the barra as well as ‘great to eat’ threadfin salmon and, the helicopter will offer spectacular flights over the Mitchell Falls! At the end of each day – join the crew for cocktails and other delights in the ship’s bar before revelling in more unique dining experiences in the TRUE NORTH’s ‘marri inspired’ dining saloon.

There will also be more ‘Mackie sessions’ at Cape Voltaire and the Montalivet Islands and, the opportunity to go heli-camping to Cherubin Falls promises to be yet another cruise highlight.

Day 6:

The Roe River is yet another opportunity to catch a barra as we explore a river that boats one of the highest crocodile counts in the Kimberley!

The Roe was named after the first Surveyor-General of Western Australia – John Septimus Roe who conducted numerous expeditions along the Kimberley coast between 1829 & 1849 and, the ship’s helicopter will dramatically demonstrate the maze of creeks and endless coast that the early explorers encountered!

The mouth of the Roe River is another ‘hotpot’ for threadfin salmon and in the afternoon we’ll sail into Prince Frederick Harbour and the mouth of the Hunter River for sunset drinks in Art Island.

Barra Bonanza South Itinerary

Itinerary 
Night 1:

Your “welcome aboard” the magnificent True North begins with a light-aircraft flight from Broome to the Mitchell Plateau. Then join a scenic heli-transfer to your floating boutique hotel in the spectacular Hunter River.

Once on-board, settle into your cabin and enjoy a welcome aboard refreshment before heading off in search of the mighty barramundi and equally revered mangrove jack! Yes, that’s right – no time to dally – the fishing action waits for no man, or woman!

With time on our side we’ll retain the history theme with a visit to Phillip Parker King’s boab tree in Careening Bay.

The mouth of The Roe is a ‘hotpot’ for threadfin salmon and in the afternoon we’ll sail into Prince Frederick Harbour for sunset drinks on Art Island.
Day 3:

The scenery will astound and there will be more ‘not to be missed’ fishing action as the TRUE NORTH graces the majestic Prince Regent River. At King Cascades we manoeuvre the bow under the falls and swim in the billabong above. But enough of that – it’s picnic day!

Another breathtaking helicopter flight this time to the picnic that you’ll never forget – the TRUE NORTH’s mouth-watering cuisine prepared alongside a crystal clear billabong – in one of the most remote places on earth!

Those with an interest in indigenous rock art might also take advantage of a dedicated rock art flight.
Day 4:

This morning the expedition boats will ply St George Basin and Rothsay Water – more discovery and, more fishing action!

Perhaps there will be opportunity to visit the ruins of an ill-fated first settlement and the graves of the most unfortunate. Then join ‘the hunt for the giant black-lip oyster’. In fact – their much-talked about proportions render them not that hard to find at all! Savour their unique taste direct from the rock – aside freshly squeezed lemon; you can’t get much more au naturel than that!
Day 5:

The George Water is very highly regarded as a fishing destination – and that is saying something in the fish-rich waters of the Kimberley.

The ‘George’ is a vast area of creeks and estuaries known to be stalked by hungry barramundi! A large mulloway or ‘threadie’ will also give you a run for your money and other target species include ‘fine eaters’ such as mangrove jack and fingermark.

Then it’s onto the Barlee Impediment – a huge bank of mud surrounded by intriguing mangroves. The mangroves always prove to be a bird-watchers delight and the area is another favoured barra habitat!

We’ll also explore the Glenelg River.

Any chance to explore the ‘Glenelg’ is a chance not to be missed – the river is remote, not often visited and well known for crocs! No fear in the ship’s helicopter though – those keen for a swim can fly well beyond the reach of even the most determined saltie!

A short cruise will then deliver all aboard to the impressive silhouette of Raft Point. Here, join a moderate hike to an art gallery with a difference and Raft Point’s well-preserved Wandjina paintings.

In the late afternoon the expedition boats will be away again – this time in search of the Kimberley mud crab. Mud-crabbing is definitely a favoured activity on-board the TRUE NORTH but it might be a good idea to let your guide wrangle these feisty critters – as you keep equally busy with a chilled beverage in hand!
Day 6:

It’s time to introduce a Kimberley icon – Montgomery Reef! Montgomery is a unique eco-system that must be seen to be believed – and see it you will – as 140 square miles of coral rises out of the ocean right before your very eyes! Water cascades from the reef as the falling tide exposes a privileged glimpse of another world! Turtles, dugong, manta rays and every imaginable sea creature abound whilst the ship’s helicopter puts all in perspective!

And even more high adventure today! The ‘Walcott’ is renowned for big barra and even bigger crocs!

And the opportunity to ‘ride the tide’ through the spectacular Charnley Gorge, to where the salt meets the fresh – is one of the Kimberley’s most hand-picked experiences! This is especially so if you then get a chance to sight-cast ravenous barra as they wait for the tide to spill into their billabong home away from home!

Jacks, fingermark and threadfin will also be on today’s ‘list’.
Day 7:

Today we encounter yet another Kimberley icon – The Horizontal Falls! Experience the awesome power of the region’s huge tidal range in an exhilarating expedition boat ride and then climb aboard the helicopter for a view of the falls that few experience! The fishing action continues too with impressive soirees into the local creek systems.

Secure Bay and Leadline Creek offer one last opportunity to land a barra and the waters around Cockatoo and Irvine Islands conclude the blue-water action before we enjoy a leisurely evening cruise around Cape Leveque.
Day 8:Your courtesy coach will arrive at approximately 0800 hours for transfer to the Broome airport or your accommodation and, our crew will already be looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the mighty TRUE NORTH.
