    Set sail for the wild and grandiose landscapes of Kimberley, following a brand new PONANT itinerary.  

    From Darwin to Broome, embark aboard Le Lapérouse for an 11-day expedition cruise.

    At around two-thirds the size of France, Kimberley is one of the last unspoiled regions on the planet.

    In one of the most picturesque parts of the region, the Hunter River, you will see wild mangrove forests wheresaltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds.

    The highpoint of this cruise will undoubtedly be the discovery of the King George River and the majestic Twin Falls, the highest falls in Western Australia.

    You will also visit Collier Bay, where you will be able to admire the Montgomery Reef, home to vast expanses of lagoons and immense coral reefs.

    Le Lapérouse will take you along one of the most spectacular coasts in the entire region.

    With their falls, abrupt gorges, savannah, calm waters and desolate mountain chains, the wild lands of Kimberley are the promise of an exceptional adventure.
