Expedition cruise company Heritage Expeditions sets sail for Australia’s world-famous Kimberley Coast with the addition of two exciting new itineraries to its 2023.
The new adventures are scheduled aboard the line’s luxurious expedition flagship Heritage Adventurer, which will offer two new 11-day, expertly-led expedition cruises: Kimberley Explorer: Expedition Cruising Australia’s Iconic Kimberley Coast and Kimberley Coast & Beyond: Expedition Cruising Australia’s Kimberley Coast and Indonesia.
The new adventures showcase Western Australia’s wild and remote Kimberley coast, where towering, fractured iron-tinged red cliffs meet torrential waterfalls, hidden coves and caves, secluded white sand beaches, ancient rock art, magnificent reefs and rare and endangered wildlife. The Kimberley’s ancient landscape, epic scale and incredible natural attractions and indigenous culture made it the perfect addition to Heritage Expeditions’ impressive catalogue of intrepid destinations.
Guests have the option to experience this incredible landscape ship cruising poolside aboard Heritage Adventurer, by a fleet of 14 Zodiacs, ensuring no guest is left on board, and by foot on special landings.
Kimberley Explorer, departing July 11 and 21, and August 10 2023, showcases the Kimberley’s finest, including ancient Aboriginal rock art, natural wonders Horizontal Falls, Montgomery Reef and King George Falls; World War II history at Vansittart Bay, early explorer history at Colonial Bay, the Lacepede Islands and more.
Alternatively, Kimberley Coast & Beyond, departing July 31 and August 20, 2023, sails well off the typical tourist route to the powdery white sand shores and crystal-clear waters of Indonesia’s tiny tropical outpost and snorkelling paradise, Matakus Island, and includes iconic Kimberley outback town Wyndham, gateway to the Bungle Bungle Range and Ord River; ancient Aboriginal rock art, the Horizontal Falls, Montgomery Reef and King George Falls; and both Vansittart Bay and the Lacepede Islands.
Travel is aboard 140-guest expedition Heritage Adventurer; built in Finland, she brings an impressive history of polar exploration having held records for the most northern and southern Arctic and Antarctic navigations. Guests onboard will still enjoy the intimate and experiential expedition voyages synonymous with Heritage Expeditions, which have been foremost in planning, albeit now in more spacious, stylish and comfortable surrounds including an onboard pool, while a fleet of Zodiacs ensures the maximum expedition adventure. Guests aboard this luxury vessel will also enjoy all-suite cabins with private facilities and an Observation Deck with 360-degree views
