The Kimberley Ultimate Guide

The Ultimate Guide to your Great Escape Kimberley Cruise!

Can you imagine....towering red rocky gorges, pristine clear water, thundering waterfalls, invigorating hikes to unimaginable natural scenic gems, hidden from most....

You are surrounded by a real energy, we call it the spirit of the Kimberley and you can feel it. It’s certainly a privilege to experience Australia’s “last frontier”.

You will need to be travelling with locals – they always know best. The owners / skippers and crew of The Great Escape Charter Company understand the Kimberley coast nuances intimately, they understand the tides, the sandbars that only skilled navigators can negotiate to enter the river estuaries.

“Feeling like part of a big happy family” this is what our guests regularly report when they describe their adventure cruise with us. With only 14 guests and 6 crew it’s personable and bespoke.

Seeing the Kimberley coast from water is one thing, combine this with an aerial perspective will give you goose bumps. Travelling with a Bell Jet Ranger Helicopter gives you a distinct advantage and yes you will have bragging rights! Visit hidden rock art sites, discover land locked heli fishing locations or fly to the top of the word for sunset drinks. You can simply do more with a heli on board.

The ideal adventure cruise is one where you will revel in all the iconic landscapes and destinations. You may have to spilt the coast in 2 halves, the north and the south or you can do it all at once on a 13 night Kimberley Classic Adventure. Each have their own unique pride of place.
