The Kimberley is the northernmost of the nine regions of Western Australia. This dramatic and majestic is an often overlooked corner of the Outback, bordered on the west by the Indian Ocean, on the north by the Timor Sea, on the south by the Great Sandy and Tanami deserts in the region of the Pilbara, and on the east by the Northern Territory. It was first settled by humans 65,000 years ago.
Rugged, remote, breathtakingly beautiful, and known to be a favorite holiday destination of the princess of pop, Kylie Minogue, it's the type of destination you need to have shown to you via a tour or cruise.
Kimberley Quest offers fishing expeditions, 4WD-cruise combo tours and extended wilderness cruises along the Kimberley coast in the remote corner of Western Australia – between Broome and Wyndham, way outback.
As a small vessel operator, the company specializes in small groups up to 18 guests, providing comfortable, well-appointed surroundings and intimate experiences aboard its purpose-built, 25 m, luxury expedition boat, Kimberley Quest II.
Its small size enables the ship to cruise where larger vessels struggle, allowing access to many remote and untouched places. The ship is equipped with three excursion tenders to explore, including a helipad used for optional scenic helicopter flights.
With a crew of six and only18 guests, passengers appreciate a supreme level of service and enjoy a more individualised experience.“We offer personalised service that only a small family company can. Our quest adventure itineraries will take you through the unforgettable Kimberley, and to some of its amazing icons like Horizontal Waterfall and Mitchell Falls. Guests swim in fresh water holes, visit historical art sites, fish for the elusive barramundi and wonder at untouched gorges.”
As you step aboard with a small number of like-minded travellers, you will be treated to a voyage of discovery tailored to match your interests and fulfil your wish list, says the Rainbow Tourism Accredited operator of 18 award-winning years of exploring.
