Chasing waterfalls in the Kimberley with North Star Cruises

#expeditioncruising


How does the song go...'don't go chasing waterfalls...'?

Maybe not the best advice when it comes to visiting the spectacular Kimberley region.

And if seeing the region’s many waterfalls is something that interests you - then a Kimberley Waterfalls itinerary is sure to please.

A Waterfalls itinerary can also be a bit of a bonus when it comes to catching an elusive barramundi – the much-desired quarry often bites well early in the Kimberley season although the most determined fisher might be tempted to postpone his or her Kimberley experience until later in the year – barra also ‘come to notice’ towards the end of our Kimberley season and this is when the Kimberley Barra Bonanza is scheduled to depart.


The maiden Bonanza sailed in 2015 and produced some pretty solid results – our guests managed to land more than 40 barramundi plus a swag of other good eaters including coral trout, mangrove jack and fingermark bream. The 2016 Kimberley Barra Bonanza (7 nights) is scheduled to depart on 3 September.

But it doesn’t matter when you plan your Kimberley adventure – the earlier and later departures might be good for barra fishing but the middle months also bring distinct advantage. May-August are peak visitation months throughout the Kimberley – the weather is mild, it’s the best time of the year to visit the region’s many national parks and, not forgetting that Broome’s fabulous race-round, also provides a very entertaining interlude at this time of the year.

Regardless of the time of year - Kimberley cabins are always in demand and booking early is the best way to ensure your preferred departure date and cabin style.
