For tourists looking for a unique Australian experience, a Kimberley Cruise offers a fantastic way to explore one of Australia’s most magnificent wilderness areas.
The Kimberley region in Western Australia is a treasure due to its wilderness areas and its amazing flora and fauna. Some of the parks and natural attractions that you can visit while on a Kimberley cruise include:
- The Bungle Bungle Range. This is part of Western Australia’s Pumululu National Park. This is a major destination because of its sandstones and canyons. In particular, this area has what is called the Ord Basin.
With 74 islands off Queensland’s coast, the Whitsunday Islands are situated at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. The warm waters and great scenery have to make a Whitsunday Islands cruise one of the most relaxing cruising experiences available.
There are two options for cruising in the area; the first is to take one of the larger cruises ships departing from Sydney or Newcastle which make their way up to Port Douglas, or secondly take one of the smaller yachts or schooners that concentrate between 3 and 6 days sailing around these beautiful islands.
Antarctic cruises from Australia and New Zealand are not dissimilar to the experience that you would have on a cruise departing from South America. Some say that this eastern side of the continent is more extreme and that the journeys here take longer to complete. Perhaps they are right but you will still see the same kinds of wildlife and still have some fantastic opportunities to follow in the footsteps of the great explorers in their race to become the first to reach the South Pole.
