King George River
Number of Nights:
Set sail for the
wild and grandiose landscapes of Kimberley, following a brand new Ponant itinerary.
From Broome to Darwin, embark aboard L’Austral for an
11-day expedition cruise.
At around two-thirds the size of France, Kimberley is
one of the last unspoiled regions on the planet.
In one of the most picturesque parts of the region, the
Hunter River, you will see wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds.
The highpoint of this cruise will undoubtedly be the discovery of the
King George River and the majestic Twin Falls, the highest falls in Western Australia.
You will also visit Collier Bay, where you will be able to admire the Montgomery Reef, home to vast expanses of lagoons and immense coral reefs.
L’Austral will take you along the most spectacular coasts in the entire region.
With their falls, abrupt gorges, savannah, calm waters and desolate mountain chains, the wild lands of Kimberley are the promise of
an exceptional adventure.
Join our highly qualified
local expedition team Enjoy
regular Zodiac® outings & shore visits to get close to Kimberley nature Discover
billions of years-old landscapes & ancient rock art Listen to stories of the dreamtime from the
oldest continuous culture on the planet Explore

This superb mega-yacht with 132 cabins is the result of the expertise of the Italian Fincantieri shipyard and French sophistication, as interpreted by designer Jean-Philippe Nuel.
L'Austral remains faithful to our philosophy - to create a unique atmosphere, a subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being.
A sleek silhouette softened by elegantly smooth contours and large, arched windows opening up to the sea and the light: so many features come together to give L'Austral her distinctive shape. Precious materials, discreet elegance and a perfect balance between chic and casual, combine to make you feel as if you are on your own private yacht. A design blending tradition and innovation, where a nautical mood has been subtly recreated. Precious materials in smoothing neutral tones are brought to life with splashes of cheerful reds. So many personal touches create the spirit of a "private yacht".
You will encounter unique itineraries, calls inaccessible to large ships, chic and elegant yacht-like ambiance, raffined and personnalized service as well as gastronomic cuisine.
