THE KIMBERLEY

Join Constellation Journeys on our exclusive charter of the Coral Adventurer to explore the remote Kimberley region in Western Australia and experience some of the most expansive and magnificent landscapes on earth. Turn your eyes upwards to the jagged, deep red ochre cliffs. Ride the remarkable tidal flows. Discover wildlife belonging to another time. Feel the power of the Kimberley’s cascading waterfalls and surround yourself with the silence of secluded gorges.


This Kimberley adventure offers a powerful way to reset your soul and satisfy your urge to explore without leaving Australia. And by embarking on this adventure you’ll be travelling with two Australian companies – Constellation Journeys and Coral Expeditions.

At this time of year the waters surrounding The Lacepede island group often feature large pods of whales migrating south in preparation for warmer southern months. Keep your eyes out for these magnificent mammals as you cruise through this Class A nature reserve.

WEDNESDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER

Constellation Star CMYK.png

 

Horizontal Falls & Buccaneer Archipelago

The Horizontal Falls are created as the ocean thunders through a narrow gorge in the McLarty Ranges. As the tide changes water is forcibly pushed through the bottleneck, creating a rushing horizontal waterfall of swiftly flowing seawater.  

 

In the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago you’ll see evidence of massive geological forces in the ancient rock formations before concluding this remarkable day with sunset drinks at Nares Point.

THURSDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER

Constellation Star CMYK.png

 

Raft Point & Ruby Falls

Raft Point guards the entrance to sheltered Doubtful Bay, which harbours significant sites such as the ancient Wandjina rock art galleries.  Find wonder and history in the ancient stories contained within the rock art. Later, a visit to Red Cone Creek offers the active an opportunity to climb up to a freshwater swimming hole overlooking Ruby Falls.

 

Other sites we may visit in Doubtful Bay include the mighty Sale River and Steep Island.

 

FRIDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER

Montgomery Reef

Get ready for a thrilling experience at Montgomery Reef as the sea rapidly recedes in a mammoth tide. The reef rises from the ocean in a cascade of rushing water, revealing the flat topped reef and leaving you breathless with wonder and excitement.

 

Opportunistic birds take advantage of the marine life left exposed in rock pools, while turtles and larger marine life may also be spotted.

SATURDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER

Constellation Star CMYK.png

 

Prince Regent River & Kings Cascade

Running on a fault line the spectacular Prince Regent River is accessible only by sea. The area is a haven for native mammals and birds and is our access point for the magnificent King Cascade, a terraced waterfall. Falling from a considerable height and spanning a wide distance, the water tumbles down a staggered terrace of Kimberley sandstone, surrounded by grasses, mosses and ferns. It is an iconic Kimberley sight.

SUNDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER

Constellation Star CMYK.png

 

Bigge Island & Careening Bay

Picture a harbour, dotted with islands lined with mangroves and monsoon rainforests, set against a backdrop of ochre hued escarpments. This is a truly spectacular location. White-bellied sea eagles and other birds of prey are often seen here and, at low tide, expansive mudflats reveal large populations of mud-skippers, mangrove crabs and even a crocodile or two.

MONDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER

Constellation Star CMYK.png

 

Hathways's Hideaway & Mitchell Falls

Carved through layers of sandstone Mitchell Falls descends over four tiers, creating pools of emerald green on each level.  Stand and savour the serenity of this ancient landscape. Visiting Mitchell Falls is only possible by taking the optional helicopter flight (at additional cost).

 

Alternatively, explore the sandstone caves of Hathway’s Hideaway, a maze of weathered tunnels, arches and columns that was once an Aboriginal midden.

TUESDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER

Vansittart Bay & Jar Island

Vansittart Bay is home to many cultural and historically significant sites like the remarkable Jar Island Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) rock art galleries, estimated to be around 15,000 years old. Nearby, on the Anjo Peninsula, we explore the well preserved wreckage of a US Air Force C-53 Skytrooper aircraft.

WEDNESDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER
