Lady M: Rowley Shoals

Lady M: Rowley Shoals

$12000 / 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’s Rowley Shoals is our priority.

The Lady M, a family owned and operated vessel, was designed specifically for the Kimberley Expedition Cruises 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 our passengers, we set our itinerary 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. Your itinerary includes some or all of the following highlights:
2

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.
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

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.
5

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.
6

Camden Harbour & 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).
7

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.
8

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.
9

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.
10

11

King Cascades Waterfall in Prince Regent River

Explore the Prince Regent River before heading to King Cascades to anchor. This is a tranquil, scenic spot with a beautiful swimming hole at the top.
12

King George River Gorges & Waterfalls

The 12km journey up the King George River reveals some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and a wealth of bird species. The almost vertical sheer canyon walls have been eroded and looks like stacks of sandstone reminiscent of a child’s building blocks. The King George River drains the Gardner Plateau and the falls are the highest single-drop falls in the whole of the Kimberley (80m).
13

Berkeley River

Entry to this river is quite challenging as the sands at the mouth shift constantly. Our expert skipper will carefully manoeuvre through the entrance and meander upstream this glorious river. Even though this river is only 5 hours from the King George, the cliffs and colours are quite different. Lady M will anchor upstream as far as possible and then take the dinghies further up for an easy walk over flat rocks to a most delightful little pool to cool off. From a different anchorage point, another tender excursion takes us to Casuarina Falls.
