True North – Kimberley Ultimate

For 30 years True North 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.

Planning your holiday is easy, and speak to your friendly Consultant.

Day 1: Kununurra – Welcome Aboard the True North

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 2: King George River and Falls – Koolama Bay

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 3: Eagles Falls – Vansistart Bay

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 4: Vansistart Bay

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 5: Mitchell River

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 6: Prince Frederick Harbour – Swift River

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 7: Prince Frederick Harbour – Roe River

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 8: Hunter River

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 9: Prince Regent River – Melaleuca Falls

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. The scenery will astound and there will be some ‘not to be missed’ fishing action as the True North graces this majestic river. 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 10: Prince Regent River – King Cascades

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 11: Sale River – Montgomery Reef

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. 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 12: Raft Point

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.

Day 13: Horizontal Falls – Talbot Bay

It’s time to ‘personally’ introduce you to another Kimberley icon – The Horizontal Falls.

True North – Kimberley Waterfalls

A True North Kimberley Cruise with a difference. Experience the emotive beauty that accompanies the end of the wet season. Experience the Kimberley’s renowned summer storms and spectacular light shows. Experience thundering waterfalls and swollen billabongs. And, not forgetting unexplained rock-art, extraordinary wildlife and monster barramundi.

Planning your holiday is easy, and speak to your friendly Consultant.

Day 1: Broome – Welcome Aboard the True North

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 2: Horizontal Falls – Talbot Bay – Silica Beach

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. Enjoy a walk on Silica Beach.

Day 3: Raft Point – Wandjana Rock Art – Montgomery Reef

Start the day with some hot fishing action – this time at “Three Ways”. Then 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.

You will probably be enjoying lunch as we weigh anchor and set sail for Montgomery Reef. Montgomery is a unique eco-system that must been 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 it all in perspective!

Day 4: Prince Regent River – King Cascades

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 King 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 5: Melaleuca Falls

Be amongst the first on deck and join an early morning fishing expedition, or see some stunning rock art or join the ship’s naturalist in one of the expedition boats – and all before another breathtaking helicopter flight to a picnic that you’ll never forget. The True North’s mouth watering cuisine alongside a crystal clear billabong – in one of the most remote places on earth.

Day 6: Hunter River – Jackson Falls – Prince Frederick Harbour

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 for a closer look, it’s only a short hike to Jackson Falls, and, there’s even more splendour from the helicopter!

In the afternoon we will sail into Prince Frederick Harbour for another chance to catch a plump wet season barra, finishing the day with sunset drinks on your own secluded beach.

Day 7: Voltaire Passage

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 the 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 mackeral. In the afternoon we will explore Voltaire Passage and the many surrounding islands. Then join us for our pearl party. Enjoy a glass of bubbly whilst trying on exquisite pieces created by the artistes at Linneys, Jewels of the Kimberley and Kimberley Fine Diamonds.

Day 8: Surveyors Creek – Mitchell River – Mitchell Falls

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 9: Eagle Falls – Bradshaw Rock Art

Today you will have another 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 10: King George River and Falls – Tranquil Bay

Yet another mighty Kimberley river – the King George. As soon as the tide is high enough, we’ll cross the sand bar 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. In the afternoon learn the history of the wreck of the Koolama and take a stroll at Tranquil Bay before we continue onto the frontier port of Wyndham.

Day 11: Wyndham

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.
