Get the full experience...

Fly to Darwin in the Northern Territory, gateway to some of Australia’s most fascinating areas of untamed beauty. With a three night hotel stay you’ll get to explore some of the area’s major attractions, from its busy markets to sprawling national parks. Explore the city on a guided tour and take a cruise along the Adelaide River to witness the remarkable spectacle of the ‘jumping crocs’. Seeing these formidable saltwater creatures rise vertically out of the water is an exhilarating experience. You’ll also take in the breathtaking sights of the Litchfield National Park, home to cascading waterfalls, diverse wildlife and lush forests.

Embarking Silver Explorer, settle in for an unforgettable voyage on this purpose-built expedition ship, which is designed to enhance your adventure. Your first stop is Matakus Island in eastern Indonesia. This tiny speck of land has a population of around a hundred people and is a tropical paradise, with dazzling blue waters and freshly caught fish to dine on beside the beach.

Wyndham, where you’ll sail next, is the gateway to the Bungle Bungle range, a remarkable area of striped beehive-shaped towers. Australia’s indigenous people have lived in this region for over 20,000 years and it’s one of the country’s natural wonders. In the town of Wyndham itself you could learn about its past in the Historical Society Museum, or see the Big Crocodile statue, a famous local landmark.

After exploring the King George River and its spectacular 80-metre waterfalls you’ll head for the Hunter River region in Kimberley, home to Mitchell Falls and a vast mangrove system where crocodiles lurk. Next you’ll head to the Buccaneer Archipelago off the coast of Kimberley, an area comprising around 800 islands and home to Horizontal Falls, a rare and curious marine phenomenon.

Disembarking in Broome for a two night hotel stay, delve into the handful of attractions dotted around this former pearling town. Now a popular resort, it’s a place where you’ll find camel processions along Cable beach at sunset, flying fox colonies in the trees and ancient dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point.

Darwin - Hotel Stay & Tour

After a city tour exploring the delights of Darwin, you’ll embark on a private boat for a cruise along the Adelaide River, the location of the famous Jumping Crocodiles. Here you’ll have the opportunity to see these incredible creatures at close range in their natural habitat, accompanied by an experienced guide. These huge saltwater crocodiles were almost hunted to extinction by European settlers until the intervention of conservation groups in the early 1970s and have now recovered to sustainable numbers.

Matakus Island

Matakus Island is one of the specks of land that make up the Tanimbar Islands of Indonesia. A population of just a hundred people live here, and at just over two miles in length and less than a mile across, it really is tiny. With minimal tourist infrastructure, make the most of the freshly caught and grilled fish along the shore, and discover staghorn coral fields and cardinalfish in its crystal-clear waters.

Wyndham

The small settlement of Wyndham was established in 1886 at the height of the Halls Creek gold rush and sits on the Cambridge Gulf where several rivers meet. These days its known as a port from which cattle are exported, and as the gateway to the breathtaking Bungle Bungle Range, a vast area of cone-like mountains that have been carved by wind and rain over millions of years. They’re one of the country’s most striking natural wonders, while the area has been home to aboriginal people for millennia.

King George River

With its torrents of water plummeting down a sheer 80-metre high cliff – one of the highest in the country - King George Falls is one of Kimberley’s most celebrated natural wonders. The river itself winds through an enthralling landscape of dizzyingly steep red-rock formations and an impressive range of wildlife. Among other creatures, you’ll find saltwater crocodiles and a range of birdlife, including giant raptors and the Brahminy Kite.

DAY 10 | 30 Jul 2021
Hunter River Region

The Hunter River is said to have the biggest population of saltwater crocodiles in the whole of the Kimberley region and is also home to a vast, maze-like mangrove system surrounded by red sandstone cliffs. Look out for the striking rock formations around the mouth of the river. Numerous bird species can be found here as well as fiddler crabs, known for having one pincer bigger than the other.

DAY 11 | 31 Jul 2021
Hunter River Region

Among the highlights further inland is the famous Mitchell Falls where four tiers of waterfalls drop into deep pools that flow out into the mighty Mitchell River. A cooling dip in the fresh water brings a welcome respite from the heat and the Mitchell Plateau provides a stunning backdrop. It’s an idyllic setting in an otherwise harsh and arid landscape.

DAY 12 | 1 Aug 2021
Buccaneer Archipelago Region (Horizontal Falls)

The archipelago was once a notorious place for pearling vessels that struggled to navigate these waters and rocky islands and even today some of the islands are difficult to access. One feature of the area, Horizontal Falls, is a rare natural phenomenon and makes for a breathtaking sight. The ‘falls’ are actually tidal whirlpools caused by the manner in which seawater passes through a gap in two rock formations. Viewed from above the effect resembles a waterfall.

DAY 13 | 2 Aug 2021
Buccaneer Archipelago Region

The Buccaneer Archipelago off the coast of Western Australia is one of Kimberley’s best-loved natural attractions. It’s made up of around 800 islands - most of them uninhabited - and helps buffer the mainland from the turbulent tides. Sail through these scattered and rugged slivers of land that seem to stretch out from the coast and appreciate some of the best scenery Kimberley has to offer

Broome - Disembark Silver Explorer & Hotel Stay

With its colonies of flying foxes and camels walking along Cable Beach at sunset, Broome, where you’ll disembark today, is an intriguing town. Once known for its pearling industry, it’s now a popular destination during tourist season when the number of residents grows by thousands. Nearby Roebuck Bay is well known for its ‘Staircase to the Moon’, a rare natural optical illusion that sometimes occurs when the tide is receding.

DAY 15 | 4 Aug 2021
Broome - Hotel Stay

With a day at leisure in Broome, you could check out the town’s highlights on a tour or enjoy them independently. As well as Cable Beach, you could visit Gantheaume Point where dinosaur footprints can be seen at low tide in the red rocks and fossils are preserved in the sandstone. The Japanese Cemetery is the resting place of the pearl divers who once worked here, many of whom died from decompression sickness, while the Pearling Master’s high tea at Pearl Luggers in the heart of Chinatown is another treat.
