The most astounding and vivid colours on earth, sky and sea that Australia is so renowned for, not to mention the indigenous involvement and artwork, which relays the stories of their dreamtime past.
The Kimberley on Australia’s North West Coast exhibits the oldest history of rock and life on our planet.
It is hard to imagine that our country, so new to the modern civilised world has been on this planet for so long and displays an exhilarating variety in geological displays. From rock formations, horizontal and vertical waterfalls, extraordinary tidal reefs, amazing rock layers, to abundant wildlife, both land and marine. The most astounding and vivid colours on earth, sky and sea that Australia is so renowned for, not to mention the indigenous involvement and artwork, which relays the stories of their dreamtime past.
It is hard to comprehend where we stand in the history of our planet, however this enlightening experience will certainly give you a great appreciation of our land and a thirst for more.
The only way to really appreciate and get a true experience of the Kimberley is to travel by small ship. Set sail between Darwin, Kununurra and Broome on an expedition cruise, escorted by experts in their field who crave to share their stories and history. Vessels vary in size, but whatever ship size you take, you won’t be disappointed.
The Kimberley cruising season usually starts in April, after the wet season when the waterfalls are at their best. The season then continues through to September and October, when the water levels are at their lowest, but still explorable by foot. June to October is the world’s largest annual humpback whale migration. If you are lucky like I was, you may experience their calves in tow, certainly a sight to behold.
I can assure you that you will not be disappointed, and you will certainly return enriched from this true ‘Australian Expedition’.
This is our country, my country, your country! You owe it to yourself to enjoy what is here waiting for you on our very own doorstep!
