Orion’s 10 night Kimberley Expeditions in 2008 will undertake an in-depth exploration of this remote coastline, one way from Darwin to Broome. This voyage also operates in reverse. Nothing can fully prepare you for the dramatic contrasts of Australia’s north-west, rich in Aboriginal culture and galleries of ancient artwork. Towards the west, in the historic pearling town of Broome, the colours of nature are vibrant and intense - rich red earth, azure blue seas and brilliant white sand beaches. North of Broome lies the ragged Kimberley coast, a place you can only comprehend from the sea. Rugged gorges, inlets, waterfalls plunging 100 metres all combine for an awe-inspiring experience you simply can’t have by travelling overland. Orion is a new purpose built expedition vessel and has opened Australia to ‘chic adventure’ cruising, where the comforts of a floating resort are combined with excursions to unspoilt nature reserves, pristine beaches, and tropical reefs. Discover in style, the hidden secrets of the Kimberley coast accessible only by water. The vessel itself is sleek, modern and luxurious. With less than a hundred guests and seventy five crew, service is beyond compare. Choose from staterooms and suites, all with ocean views, TV/DVD, wireless internet connection, sitting areas, marble ensuite bathrooms and twenty four hour room service. Dining is in the elegant restaurant or the open deck with signature menus from the award winning chef “Serge Dansereau”. View the scenic beauty of the Kimberley from the panoramic observation lounge’s wrap around deck. Vessel facilities include an outdoor jacuzzi, gymnasium, sauna, beauty salon and boutique shop. When you want to go ashore, ten heavy duty Zodiacs will whisk you away to experience an array of shore side expeditions. Highlights include Mitchell Falls, pearling farms, the spectacular Horizontal Falls, Aboriginal rock art, and King George Falls. Perfectly proportioned, Orion is small enough to be intimate and large enough to be safe. It can reach smaller ports and inlets inaccessible to other ships but brave the greatest seas. A perfect way to experience the Kimberley in style. Operated by: Orion Expedition Cruises
