Australia's last frontier
An expedition cruise in the marvelous Kimberley region
Australia's last frontier is a wild land of remote, spectacular scenery spread over huge distances, with a severe climate, a sparse population, and minimal infrastructure. Larger than 75% of the world's countries, the Kimberley is hemmed by coastline and deserts, making travel here a true adventure.
On this A&K expedition voyage, you’ll first assemble in the former pearling city of Broome. Then, join A&K’s world-renowned Expedition Team aboard Le Laperouse, embarking on an 11-day exploration of northwestern Australia’s rarely glimpsed Kimberley region. Discover a vast, untouched wilderness of far-flung islands, stunning tidal waterfalls, biodiverse reefs, riverine mangrove forests, historic aboriginal sites, cavernous coastal gorges, towering mountain ranges, and exotic wildlife.
