In Katherine, guests can dine in one of the most incredible settings in the world, as they take a Scenic Enrich dinner cruise through the towering Katherine Gorge.
Lake Argyle marks our entry into the Kimberley region. Marvel at the value of the Ord Irrigation Scheme to the small town of Kununurra and hope for a ‘sample’ from the Rio Tinto owned and operated Argyle Diamond Mine. Or, perhaps our diamonds are the millions of stars visible in the night sky over El Questro, our home in the Kimberley wilderness.
Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing provide a glimpse of the gold mining history of the area and a chance to cruise part of the ancient limestone barrier reef carved by the Fitzroy River at Geikie Gorge.
The Kimberley adventure culminates in the pearling town of Broome, an oasis on the coast. The contrast of the Pindan soil, the beautiful beaches and the relaxing lifestyle – Broome time is a very real thing – this is a welcome stay in beautiful surrounds.
Guests can even enjoy camel ride on the beach or take a tour on a Harley-Davison while there.
Leaving the Kimberley behind, we make our way into the resource rich Pilbara, where Karijini National Park provides a naturally beautiful alternative to the hardworking towns of Port Hedland and Karratha.
Back on the coast at Exmouth, cruising the Ningaloo Reef, the maritime history of this coast seems so very real. The early traders, the famous explorers…Dirk Hartog, William Dampier, Willem de Vlamingh, Nicolas Baudin, Luis de Freycinet, they all sailed this ruggedly beautiful coastline.
A two night stay in Monkey Mia, where guests can see the dolphins under supervision of a national park ranger, allows you to unwind before the final run down the coast to Perth.
