Lady M: Kimberley Cruise Highlights & Fly

Lady M: Kimberley Cruise Highlights & Fly

/ per person
(0 Reviews)

Accommodating only 12 / 13 guests in en-suite air-conditioned cabins, your Kimberley adventure promises to be an intimate and personal journey.  Itineraries are adapted daily to suit tides/weather and to avoid the larger passenger vessels arriving at destinations at the same time.  Guests’ comfort and the experience of the “remoteness” of the Kimberley is our priority.

The Lady M, a family owned and operated vessel, was designed specifically for the Kimberley to ensure your cruise is as comfortable as possible.

Tour Plan

1

A set itinerary is difficult to follow due to the large tidal movements of the Kimberley coast. So in the best interest and comfort of passengers, we set our itineraries on a day by day basis. We travel mainly during daylight hours, ensuring you will not miss any of the spectacular scenery along the way. Cruise Broome to Hunter River (or reverse, depending on cruise direction). Transfer from the Hunter River to Mitchell Plateau airstrip with a Scenic helicopter flight over Mitchell Falls & surrounds. Transfer from Mitchell Plateau airstrip to Broome on a Scenic fixed-wing 2 hour flight.
2

Silica Beach

Enjoy a dip in the pristine turquoise water or a barefoot walk on the pure white sand of Silica Beach. Treat yourself to a body scrub as you sit on the water's edge. Enjoy the peace and remoteness of this area as you take in the view of the colourful surrounding sandstone rocks.
3

Crocodile Creek

Take a short ride in the tenders along the creek to the waterfall for a relaxing or invigorating swim surrounded by nature. The Koolan Island mine workers made this their own playground and swimming pool many years ago but now happily share it with those of us fortunate enough to be passing by.
4

Horizontal Falls

Be amazed at the tidal power of this natural phenomenon. Balance the fast pace of the Falls with a relaxing boat tour floating past the unusual and colourful lines to the ancient cliffs of Cyclone Creek. Observe the gentle lemon sharks surround the boat and feed the fish.
5

Montgomery Reef

Arriving on a lowering tide, we anchor in the centre of the "jewel" of the Kimberley coast. Enjoy an up-close tour in the tenders as the cascading water exposes the more than 400 sq km of coral reef rising from the sea. Spot the turtles as they poke their heads up for a quick look at their visitors. Keep and eye out for dugong, sharks, manta rays and the colourful fish visible in the clear water. A uniquely tranquil experience you will always remember.
6

Raft Point

A 30 minute climb up the red sandstone bluff rewards you with a exceptional and well-preserved Wandjina Aboriginal art site. On your way back down the bluff enjoy the spectacular view of Steep Island and the amazing colours of this area from under the huge boab tree.
7

Ruby Falls

When anchoring in Red Cone Creek we are often visited by the local ever-watchful crocodiles. Here we travel upstream in the dinghies for about 8 km for a fresh water swim at Ruby Falls, a chilly but refreshing dip under the falls and perhaps a mud pack for the ladies.
8

Camden Harbour and Sheep Island

The site chosen for settlement in 1864 by the Camden Harbour Pastoral Association, a decision which cost the lives of many, their sheep and horses. Under the boab tree on Sheep Island lays the grave site of the first white woman buried in the Kimberley. Remnants of the settlement and memorial plaques still remain today. This tragic story is revealed in the book, "There were Three Ships" (by Christopher Richard).
9

Careening Bay

One of the Kimberley’s most historic sites; the large boab tree carved in 1820 marking the time Phillip Parker King careened his ship in the bay for repairs on his third voyage of the Australian coastline. The bay is usually a good spot for fishing, so a good chance of fresh fish for dinner during our stay.
10

Prince Regent River & King Cascades

Cruise up the mighty Prince Regent through the many tidal whirlpools to the famous and picturesque King Cascades. The Lady M gently manoeuvres into the small gap in the riverbank directly under the falls for a refreshing shower and an opportunity for many photos.
11

Mitchell Falls

Board the helicopter from Naturalist Beach in the Hunter River for a scenic flight over the spectacular Mitchell Falls and Mitchell Plateau. Cascading over the Mitchell Plateau, these four-tiered falls are amongst the most photographed with an impressive overall drop of nearly 80 metres.
12

Whale Watching

The best months to view the Humpback whales is from July to November as they make their way to calving grounds on the Kimberley Coast, just north of Broome. The whales stay for four months with their new calves in the warm waters of the Kimberley before returning to the Antarctic for their the annual feeding area.
13

Fishing & Mud crabbing

Fishing and mud crabbing is enjoyed throughout the cruise and the catch is cooked on the barbecue while you enjoy a drink and chat around the bar.
