Silversea Expeditions will highlight one of the world’s ancient territories when the all-suite Silver Explorer ventures into the waters of the Kimberley for the first time in mid 2021.
A destination renowned for its thundering waterfalls, spectacular gorges, ancient Aboriginal rock art and amazing wildlife, the Kimberly’s remote destinations are often accessible only by ship.
Guests will cruise by Zodiac through an untamed wilderness to spot wallabies, crocodiles, and osprey nests ashore, and listen to expert interpretations of ancient rock paintings drawn by the traditional land owners eons ago. Explore narrow channels, searching for white-bellied sea-eagles, black-necked storks, kingfishers, kites, and other birds in the mangroves and mud flats.
Throughout the expedition guests will get a better understanding of the history, geology, wildlife and botany of this spectacular area from presentations offered by their knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team. The flexible itineraries will include explorations of attractions such as the King George River and Falls, Talbot Bay (home to the Horizontal Falls), the Hunter River that is teaming with saltwater crocodiles and Montgomery Reef to witness the tidal changes that reveal a fascinating semi-submerged waterscape.
Cruise the wild and untamed North West coast of Australia, to the remote Kimberley region aboard the elegant 144-passenger Silver Explorer – the perfect platform for viewing these untamed landscapes.
Silversea Expedition offers six 10-day cruise departures between late June and mid-August 2021, operating one-way between Broome and Darwin (or vice versa). The 2021 Kimberley season is bookended with a 17-day sailing from Singapore to Broome on 7 June, and an 18-day voyage from Broome to Cairns on 23 August.
Guests aboard Silver Explorer will enjoy butler service, complimentary champagne, spirits, beers and fine wines, world-class cuisine, included Wi-Fi throughout the ship and gratuities.
