A Kimberley cruise is an adventure of a lifetime. The breathtaking coastline of Western Australiaâ€™s north is like no other place. Barely touched for centuries, its dramatic limestone cliffs, calm turquoise waters, picturesque archipelagos and stunning waterfalls provide a miraculous backdrop to a cruise holiday. Only a Kimberley cruise can get you this close to the untamed wildlife, remote swimming holes, secret fishing spots and Indigenous rock art sites that are inaccessible by any other means. Broome & The Kimberley Holidays offers cruise holidays that will stay with you forever. We live and breathe the Kimberley, and weâ€™re proud to share our local knowledge with you. Let us show you our favourite places. The Kimberley is our home, and with decades of experience in the region, we can tailor an adventure just for you.
Welcome to Broome & The Kimberley Holidays itt gives me a great deal of pleasure to present to you our Kimberley Cruising and rail expedition programme for 2011-12. in the pages that follow, we have presented what we deem to be, some of the best holiday experiences in our region. When i began Broome & the Kimberley holidays some 14 years ago, our intention was to bring the spectacular colours and majestic images of our home, to adventure thirsty travellers in the south. outh. it was relatively difficult for travellers to communicate with individual owner operators of smaller vessels at that time. however, being based in Broome, our specialised, local expertise in itinerary planning, allowed us to bring the two parties together and i’m delighted that our programme has now grown to not only include cruising, but also iconic rail expeditions, including the ghan, and 4Wd adventures throughout the magnificent Kimberley. New to our programme are the papua New guinea cruises and having experienced them myself, i’m confident you will find pNg an amazing destination. thank you for choosing Broome & the Kimberley holidays to plan your next cruise adventure. our team and i wish you a very happy holiday.

Papua New Guinea Cultural Highlights
Amazing, courageous and opportunistic explorers they were. Until you have been to Orion’s Papua New Guinea it is hard to fathom how anyone got here – a lost paradise of excitable, sincere welcomes. “Remote” is an understatement as we witness completely mysterious ceremonies blended with the hues of a thousand cultures from islands and archipelagos that stretch from Cairns to the Solomons. Rainforests blanket the mountains and hills that flow down ancient volcanic peaks to the sea. Our ship morphs into this backdrop of coastal villages and lush vegetation. You are reminded of how to live with nothing more than the skill and knowledge of a sustainable culture. We swim in waters so clear they induce vertigo. Each day of these expeditions will reveal much of the recent history of Papua New Guinea including the major heroic events from WWll. The first land victory against the Japanese in 1942 at Milne Bay was hailed as destroying the legend of Japanese ‘invincibility’. WWII relics are everywhere, from abandoned airfields to landing barges
overgrown by jungle. This land of 800 languages, the cultural diversity will take your breath away. Whether it is the mysterious art of the Sepik or the feathered headdresses of a Tufi tribesman, it never fails to astonish. From volcanic tropical fiords, flooded craters like Rabaul’s Simpson Harbour, to pristine white sand beaches, the beauty of Papua New Guinea is wonderfully varied. Experience PNG for 11 nights departing from Cairns or Rabaul with the option of the exclusive charter flight leaving from Cairns to embark or disembark from Rabaul. One way charter flight between Cairns and Rabaul is available for an additional $600.
Spice Island Adventure
Remote, exotic and aromatic, the Spice Islands evoke visions of 17th century Dutch explorers building a wealthy trading empire, far from their European home. The history of this region is as rich and pungent as the spices it produced. Explorers and world wars have traversed this isolated line of islands, and yet their culture remains unique and intact. Centuries of artisan’s creations are expressed in colourful and unique artworks. Naturalists will marvel at the diversity of flora and fauna demarked by the Wallace Line. Further to the west, the pre-historic dragons of Komodo remind us how short our human history is. Wallacea is the epitome of Orion’s raison d’être. This voyage promises the excitement of old places and traditions captured anew. History and customs, long forgotten, rediscovered as you visit exotic Kisar, Alor, Maumere, Komodo, Sumba and Rote. This voyage embarks and disembarks in Darwin allowing convenient air connections.
