Silversea Cruises has unveiled its 2022/23 Kimberley program aboard Silver Explorer. Voyages range from 10- to 32-days duration, operating roundtrip from Darwin, one-way between Darwin and Broome (and vice-versa) and Darwin to Fremantle.
“Silversea’s 2022 Kimberley season is now almost sold out, indicating just how eager travellers are to see this beautiful part of the country, and we can’t wait to set sail,” said Adam Radwanski, Silversea’s Managing Director Asia-Pacific.
“The remote Kimberley region is best accessed by ship, and these voyages – some of which are brand new for Silversea – unlock breathtaking natural wonders in places few people have been. Silversea’s signature brand of ultra-luxury elevates the experience, offering once-in-a-lifetime journeys for our guests.”
Onboard the 144-passenger Silver Explorer on the Kimberley Coast itineraries are a team of expedition experts – which includes marine biologists, ornithologists, naturalists, and other knowledgeable professionals – who will share their expertise with guests and lead excursions ashore to unlock Australia’s wilderness frontier.
Included experiences range from a Zodiac trip to the King George Falls, where guests will get close enough to feel the spray from the 80 metre twin cascades, to an introduction to Aboriginal rock art, which dates back more than 50,000 years.
Guests will enjoy regionally-inspired gastronomic experiences, from the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines of the Margaret River region to indigenous bush food – such as boab roots that feature in onboard cuisine, inspired by Executive Chef Alan Groom of El Questro Homestead in the Kimberley. As well as international favourites, guests can sample such dishes as citrus-cured salmon gravlax with green mango dressing; and grilled saltwater barramundi, shaved fennel salad, cherry tomato, and boab root salsa.
Silversea’s Kimberley voyages are priced from AU$13,600, with a 10% early booking bonus offered until 30 September 2021. Guests will enjoy a door-to-door service, with private executive transfers, round-trip flights, and transfers and luggage handling included, as well as the broad range of onboard inclusions for which Silversea is renowned.
