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. 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 swim at Crocodile Creek and a walk on Silica Beach. All too soon your adventure on the True Northis coming to an end – enjoy a farewell dinner to remember as the True North glides past Cockatoo & Koolan Islands, Cape Leveque and down the Dampier Peninsula to Broome.

Day 14: Broome

Our arrival in Broome is in time for an early morning coach transfer to your accommodation or connecting flights – our crew are already looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the True North.

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.

True North – Kimberley Snapshot

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

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: Cockatoo and Koolan Island, Horizontal Falls, Leadline Creek, Doutful Bay

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 3: 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. 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 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 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 5: Hunter River, Jackson Falls,, Vansittart Bay

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 6: Bradshaw Rock Art, Eagle Falls, Koolama Bay

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 7: King George Falls, Tranquil Bay

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 8: 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.

True North – Kimberley Barra Bonanza

A True North 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.

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

Day 1: Wyndham – Welcome Aboard the True North

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 Norths’s revered dining saloon as we begin an overnight cruise to Cape Domett.

Day 2: Cambridge Gulf – Cape Comett

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 3: Jade Creek – Atlantis Bay – King George Falls – Nulla Nulla

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 4: Vansittart Bay

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 5 & 6: Mitchell River

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 7: Roe River

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.

Day 8: Broome

One last chance to land a barra or maybe the biggest ‘jack’ of the trip as we explore the spectacular ‘Hunter’. Then it’s time for your scenic heli-transfer to the Mitchell Plateau and light-aircraft flight to Broome. Our crew will already be looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the mighty True North.

True North – West Coast Explorer

The deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean lap the red sands of the ‘north’ as the True North winds its way north on its West Coast Explorer Cruise from Fremantle to Dampier. The Abrolhos are steeped in history; Ningaloo boasts world-acclaimed marine life and the Montes offer fishing paradise – the ‘West Coaster’ is a sojourn that tames Australia’s still-wild western shores! A must for snorkelers and divers, a must for fishers, a must for the adventurer at heart!

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

Day 1: Perth – Welcome Aboard the True North

Your adventure begins in the Perth – capital of the sprawling state of Western Australia.

Occupying the entire western third of the Australian continent, Western Australia is Australia’s largest state but despite its vastness, the state has just 2.3 million inhabitants representing only 10% of the nation’s population.

The capital is a modern and vibrant city featuring many attractions; in fact Perth was ranked eighth in The Economist’s 2010 list of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. Not a bad starting point for your adventure on the ‘still wild west coast’.

Join your fellow adventurers on-board the magnificent True North for a welcome aboard cocktail party and the first of many sumptuous dining experiences as we begin the overnight cruise to the Abrolhos Islands.

Day 2: Abrolhos Islands

The Houtman Abrolhos are a chain of 122 islands and associated coral reefs lying some eighty kilometres due west of Geraldton. They are the southernmost true coral reef in the Indian Ocean and one of the highest latitude reef systems in the world. They are also one of the world’s most important seabird rookeries and the centre of Western Australia’s largest single species fishery, the Western Rock Lobster Fishery. The islands have a small seasonal population of fishermen and they are well known as the site of numerous shipwrecks, the most famous being the Dutch ships Batavia, which was wrecked in 1629, and Zeewijk, wrecked in 1727.

Stretch your wings early and join a heli-flight featuring stunning reef formations and intriguing island communities. Or join a snorkelling tender – shallow inshore lagoons provide comfortable snorkelling midst colourful coral and a myriad of fish species. Curious sea lions frequently join in the fun.

Or perhaps wet line! As well as being the ‘home’ of Western Australia’s delectable rock lobster – the Abrolhos is also renowned for its fishing. Fine eating species such as Westralian jewfish, groper, snapper, and coral trout are commonly caught and, with your assistance, will likely adorn the ship’s menu.

Another alternative might be a scenic cruise in one of our comfortable adventure boats. Step ashore and find a bird-watching paradise. On the beach the honeymooning oyster catchers are hard to miss – they never leave each other’s side. In the dunes button quails and crakes nest under the dry vegetation and unique to the Abrolhos are the lesser noddys – beyond the shores of Australia, their only other nesting location is in the Seychelles. Thousands of migratory birds use the islands as a pit stop on their arduous journey across the globe.

Greenshanks, godwits, sandpipers, knots and stints decorate sparkling white beaches, roseate, crested and sooty terns fish the blue water and ospreys build giant nests wherever they can.

Then enjoy a leisurely cruise to the Easter Group. Upon arrival the snorkelling and fishing boats will be away again, dive the “Anemone Patch” and walk amongst the intriguing shacks on Rat Island.

Day 3: Abrolhos Islands

The Houtman Abrolhos – so named to warn mariners to “keep a sharp look-out”, but the fate of the Dutch East-Indian merchantman Batavia was sealed long before her hapless crew could take heed. In the dark of night the Batavia struck an unforgiving Abrolhos reef and so began a terrifying sequence of events overshadowed by desertion, betrayal, murder and revenge!

In 1628 the newly built Batavia sailed from Holland bound for the Dutch East Indies. It sailed under the command of Francisco Pelsaert, with Ariaen Jacobsz serving as skipper. Also on board was junior merchantman Jeronimus Cornelisz, a bankrupt pharmacist from Haarlem who was fleeing the Netherlands in fear of arrest because of his heretical beliefs.

During the voyage, Jacobsz and Cornelisz conceived a plan to take the ship and after leaving Cape Town, Jacobsz deliberately steered the ship off course.

On 4 June 1629 the ship struck a reef near Beacon Island. Of the 322 aboard, most of the passengers and crew managed to get ashore, although 40 people drowned. An initial survey of the islands found no fresh water and only limited food (sea lions and birds). Pelsaert realised the dire situation and decided to search for water on the mainland.

A group comprising Captain Jacobsz and Pelsaert left the wreck site in a 9m longboat in search of drinking water. After a fruitless search, they abandoned the other survivors and headed north in a danger- fraught voyage to the city of Batavia (now known as Jakarta). This journey, which ranks as one of the greatest feats of open-boat navigation, took 33 days and, extraordinarily, all aboard survived.
After their arrival in Batavia, Jacobsz was arrested for negligence, although his position in the potential mutiny was not guessed by Pelsaert.

In order to rescue the others and, to salvage the Batavia’s valuable cargo, Batavia’s Governor General immediately gave Pelsaert command of the Sardam. He arrived at the islands two months after leaving Batavia, only to discover that a bloody mutiny had taken place amongst the survivors.

Jeronimus Cornelisz, who had been left in charge of the survivors, was well aware that if the water party ever reached the port of Batavia, Pelsaert would report the impending mutiny. Therefore, he made plans to hijack any rescue ship. Cornelisz’s first deliberate act was to have all weapons and food supplies commandeered and placed under his control. He then moved a group of soldiers, led by Wiebbe Hayes, to nearby West Wallabi Island, under the false pretence of searching for water. They were told to light signal fires when they found water and they would then be rescued. Convinced that they would be unsuccessful, he then left them to die.

Cornelisz then had complete control and the remaining survivors faced two months of unrelenting butchery and savagery. Between them, his followers murdered at least 110 men, women, and children.

Although Cornelisz had left the soldiers to die, they had in fact found good sources of water and food on their islands. Initially, they did not know of the barbarity taking place on the other islands and sent the pre-arranged smoke signals. However, they soon learned of the massacres from survivors who managed to flee Cornelisz’ island. The soldiers put together makeshift weapons made from materials washed up from the wreck and, they built two small forts out of limestone and coral blocks.
Cornelisz seized on the news of water on the other island – his own supply was dwindling and the continued survival of the soldiers threatened his own success. He went with his men to try and defeat the soldiers marooned on West Wallabi Island. However, the trained soldiers were by now much better fed than the mutineers and easily defeated them in several battles before Pelsaert returned.

Pelsaert seized the mutineers – the worst offenders were executed. Some were abandoned on the mainland and the rest were taken to Batavia.

A board of inquiry later decided that Pelsaert had exercised a lack of authority and was therefore partly responsible for what had happened. His financial assets were seized and he died a broken man within a year.

On the other hand, the common soldier Wiebbe Hayes was hailed a hero. The Dutch East India Company promoted him to sergeant, and later to lieutenant, which increased his salary fivefold.

Of the original 341 people on board Batavia, only 68 made it to the port of Batavia. In circumstance that could not be more contrasting – discover for yourself the fate of the Batavia. Snorkel and dive in the crystal clear waters of the wreck site. Go ashore at Beacon Island and see a remarkably preserved canon lying in shallow water. Visit Long Island where mutineers were hanged.

At the end of the day it will be hard not to reflect on such tragic circumstance!

Day 4: Abrolhos Islands

Join the adventure boats for a day of fishing, snorkelling and diving.

Nearby Fish Point has been known to produce coral trout in shallow water and we know some spots out- wide that are pretty reliable when it comes to fine eating species such as jewfish.

Fish Point and the Turtle Bay shallows are also perfect for an easy snorkel and dive sites in the area include “Planet Channel” and other spots that feature some excellent overhangs and caves.

Step ashore at West Wallaby Island for a glimpse of the reclusive tamar wallaby and join our guides for a scenic walk amongst the ruins of Wiebbe Hayes’ rudimentary ‘forts’.

Day 5: Shark Bay

Start the day with an exhilarating hike to Steep Point – the western most edge of the Australian continent.

Steep Point is part of the Shark Bay World Heritage area and is widely regarded as one of the finest land- based game fishing locations in the world. With the Zuytdorp Cliffs to the south, and spectacular views of South Passage to the North and East, Steep Point is also surrounded by some of the most breathtaking Western Australian scenery. The cliffs rise vertically from sea level to 170 metres and the photographers on-board will cherish opportunity to capture the drama of the Indian Ocean crashing against the Australian continent.

Heli-flights over the Zuytdorps will provide stunning views of this spectacular coast.
South Passage is another hot-spot for those keen on fishing and hopefully the divers will see the giant gropers that frequent “Monkey Rock”.

And nearby Dirk Hartog Island is the site of the first ever European landing on Australian soil.

This 80 kilometre long island was discovered on the 25th of October 1616 by the Dutch sea captain Dirk Hartog, who was blown off course while sailing in the Dutch East Indies Trading Company ship Eendracht from Cape Town to Batavia. Hartog inscribed a pewter plate with his name and the date and left it nailed to a tree.

In 1697 the Dutch captain Willem de Vlamingh landed on the island and discovered Hartog’s plate. He replaced it with one of his own, which included a copy of Hartog’s inscription, and took the original plate home to Amsterdam, where it is still kept in the Rijksmuseum.

In 1801 the island was visited by a French expedition led by Captain Emmanuel Hamelin aboard the Naturaliste. This expedition found de Vlamingh’s plate almost buried in the sand, its post having rotted away. The Captain ordered that it be re-erected in its original position. Then, in 1818 the French explorer Louis de Freycinet, who had been an officer in Hamelin’s crew, visited in the Uranie. He sent a boat ashore to recover de Vlamingh’s plate. It eventually arrived in Paris, only to be lost for over a century. It was found in 1940 and returned to Australia in 1947, where it can now be seen in the Western Australian Maritime Museum in Fremantle, Western Australia.

In 1869, Francis Louis von Bibra established sheep on the island and traded guano from its bays.

Perth Lord Mayor Sir Thomas Wardle purchased the island as a private retreat for his family in 1969 and later retired there, becoming a semi-recluse with his wife. With the exception of the pastoral homestead, the island later returned to government ownership and became part of the Shark Bay Marine Park. It is now run as an eco-tourism resort and maintained by Wardle’s grandson, Kieran Wardle.

All will be unable to resist the pristine beaches that skirt the island’s southern end. Swim, snorkel or just take a relaxing stroll along a coast that likely still looks and feels as it did in 1616!

Day 6: Cape Inscription

This morning the True North will cruise to Cape Inscription on the northern tip of Dirk Hartog Island.

The fishing and snorkelling tenders will be away again and there will also be an opportunity for a dive on the western side of the Cape.

Those interested in history might prefer to join the shore parties. Tide permitting, our guides will lead you to the very spot where Hartog left his pewter plate.

The ship’s helicopter will explore Hartog from the air and the sheltered waters off Turtle Bay will provide another opportunity for a dive. There will also be ample opportunity for leisurely swims and island beachcombing.

Day 7: Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef is one of West Australia’s most popular tourist destinations and as soon as you step onto one of its brilliant white beaches you will see why! Stunning fish and corals occur within metres of the shoreline – no special skills needed here – just a mask will reveal all in swimming pool like conditions!

The reef is 260 km long and is Australia’s largest fringing coral reef and the only large reef positioned very close to a landmass. The reef is less than half a kilometre offshore in some areas.

In 1987 the reef and surrounding waters were designated as a marine park. Although most famed for its whale sharks, the reef is also rich in coral and other marine life. The reef is included in the migratory routes of dolphins, dugongs, manta rays and humpback whales. The adjacent beaches are also important rookeries for loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles. They also depend on the reef for nesting and food. Ningaloo supports an abundance of fish (500 species), corals (300 species), molluscs (600 species) and many other marine invertebrate. In 2006, researchers discovered gardens of sponges that are thought to be species completely new to science.

The day will be spent discovering the many bays and shallow inner reef areas of this acclaimed coral habitat. We’ll also squeeze in some light game fishing for the tenacious mackerel and visit the settlement at Coral Bay.

Day 8: Montebello Islands

Wake this morning somewhere completely different – the intriguing Montebello Islands.

The Montes are an archipelago of 174 small islands lying 130 kilometres off the Pilbara coast of north Western Australia.

The islands have a collective area of about 22 square kilometres. They consist of limestone rock and sand and they are predominantly covered in hummock grasses and scattered shrubs. Patches of mangrove grow in the sheltered bays and channels of the archipelago.

The two main islands, Hermite and Trimouille were discovered by the French explorer Nicolas Baudin in 1801 and the group attained economic significance for pearl fishing from the end of the nineteenth century until the outbreak of the Second World War.

But real infamy came more recently in October 1952 when Trimouille Island was the site of Operation Hurricane, the first British nuclear weapons test. There were two further tests on Alpha and Trimouille Islands in 1956. The second of these, codenamed G2, was the largest device ever detonated in Australia, with a yield of 98 kiloton. Contamination from this test reached Queensland on the other side of the Australian continent.

Even more recently the Montes have developed a reputation as island paradise with seemingly endless opportunities for fishing, snorkelling and diving.

Day 9: Montebello Islands

Day two at the Montes. Commence proceedings with an early morning fish or join the ship’s naturalist when the adventure boats head ashore for beachcombing and bird-watching – the islands have been identified by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) because they support over 1% of the world populations of Fairy Terns, Roseate Terns, and Sooty Oystercatchers. Greater Crested Terns also breed, sometimes in large numbers and other breeding species include ospreys, white-bellied sea-eagles, pied oystercatchers, caspian terns and bridled terns. The islands also support a small number of breeding beach stone-curlews.

The ship’s helicopter will again provide a unique perspective whilst the snorkellers and divers hunt for giant crayfish.

After lunch perhaps there will be an opportunity to stalk the mangroves for a Montes mud crab and not forgetting an island favourite – the delectable whiting might also make it to the menu.

Spend the afternoon on the beach or head out for another dive – the Montes will live up to its reputation as island paradise!

Day 10: Dampier Archipelago

Today we cruise the magnificent Dampier Archipelago.

The Archipelago was formed 6000 years ago when coastal plains were flooded by rising sea levels. The area’s rock formations where formed in the Archaean period and are thought to be amongst the oldest on earth.

It is a significant place for Indigenous Australians and is well known for rock art and other cultural and ceremonial sites.

It is also a place where the endeavours of tens of thousands of years collide with a multi-billion dollar resource industry! Nearby are rich reserves of natural gas, petroleum and iron ore. And our last opportunity for ‘fun in the sun’ lies in this strange twist of bedfellows – such is the interest in this area that much has been done to preserve the conservation and recreation values of the Archipelago.

Despite proximity to one of Australia’s largest ports we will find stunning prospects for our now familiar West Coast agenda.

Make the most of your last day onboard with nonstop fishing, snorkelling, diving, beachcombing and scenic tender rides!

Day 11: Karratha

With a vast and remarkable coast now discovered in style, it’s time for your early-morning disembarkation and transfer to Karratha.
