UK - Broome, Australia

Arrive in the city of Broome, poised at the western edge of the vast Kimberley and hemmed by the blue Indian Ocean. You will be met and transferred to your hotel near iconic Cable Beach by a member of the A&K team. The largest city in the Kimberley, Broome is home to over 14,000 residents, yet every bit as daring as its more sparsely populated counterparts. 

Broome

Spend today exploring at your leisure, taking in this swashbuckling treasure and its sweeping beaches, cinematic sunsets and relaxed atmosphere. Tonight, meet your fellow guests at a welcome cocktail reception and dinner.

Broome

A day of adventure awaits with A&K experts who take you beyond the surface in ever-splendid Broome. Join a city tour that reveals Broome’s historic pearling industry and rich multicultural past. Later, your adventure moves from the shore to sea when you board Le Laperouse, your luxury expedition cruiser for the next 10 nights. 

Kimberley’s Wild Coast

For the next five days, enjoy privileged insight and access to one of Australia’s least-visited regions. Each day, the expedition team will bring this vast wonderland into focus in a most enriching way. Grasp the tremendous benefit of exploring with our experts as Le Laperouse cruises through archipelagos and along the coast. The team will determine the best daily excursions, which may include these stunning regions: Lacepede Islands; Silica Beach; Horizontal Falls, described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest natural wonders of the world”; Montgomery Reef; Raft Point; Mitchell Falls; Hunter River.

Bigge Island

Sacred to the indigenous Wunambal people for more than 20,00 years, Bigge Island is home to an incredible array of indigenous rock art. Discover its well-preserved Wandjina paintings and visual recordings of the European entrance into this ancient way of life. With luck, you may also spot rock wallabies, the smallest of the wallabies, which are numerous on the island. 

King George River & Falls

Arrive in Kooloma Bay at the mouth of the King George River, named in honour of King George V. Our naturalist guides pilot Zodiacs upriver through a spectacular canyon, draped in sandstone cliffs, gorges and mangroves, where you may also spy impressive Aussie wildlife, such as the saltwater crocodile. Arrive before the awe-inspiring King George Falls, plummeting from an elevation of 84m. 

Wyndham

Beautifully poised between rugged hills and Cambridge Gulf in the northernmost region of the Kimberley, the former gold-rush town of Wyndham is the gateway to a bounty of photogenic wetlands. This includes the spectacular Ord River, where you may spot unique birds; the man-made Argyle Dam; and Purnululu National Park, home to the iconic Bungle Bungle range. During this stop, you may opt for a wildlife cruise on the thriving Ord River or a scenic flight over east Kimberley and the Bungle Bungles, one of Australia’s greatest natural wonders. 

Pulau Meatimiarang, Indonesia

Enjoy a day at sea and the opportunity to unwind with fellow guests and your Expedition Team, while Le Laperouse cruises to Pulau Meatimiarang, Indonesia, to clear customs. Take time to reflect on your adventures, share photos and attend another intriguing lecture. You may also choose to relax and enjoy the ship’s facilities, perhaps at the spa or in your room with views from your own private balcony. Later, join a special farewell reception and dinner, a celebration to mark the culmination of an unforgettable expedition. 

Darwin – UK

Bid farewell to your Expedition Team before disembarking Le Laperouse. Transfer to the airport to board your flight home.
