Into the wild: Continue the Kimberley adventure in Australia

16 October 2017

Just one week of exploring the Kimberley isn’t enough.

Having discovered the greatest show on Earth by journeying from Cygnet Bay to the majestic Mitchell Falls on board 42 metre ANDA, Boat International’s travel editor Sophia Wilson feels that just one week of exploring the Kimberley isn’t enough.

Here ANDA guide Grant Streeters reveals the best way to continue the journey up this 7,000 mile coastline, taking in the waterfalls and wildlife between Mitchell River and Wyndham. ANDA is available to charter with Ocean Alliance.

After returning from an exhilarating helicopter ride over Mitchell Falls, take  ANDA’s tenders to explore the Mitchell River – renowned for big barramundi and even bigger crocodiles. Enjoy a dip in the elevated emerald waters of Surveyors Creek, which are thankfully crocodile free. Back on board, ANDA will make her way north to an overnight anchorage in Vansittart Bay.

Before the heat gets up, discover new frontiers and walk across the salt flat on the eastern side of Vansittart Bay to view the wreckage of a Douglas DC-3 aircraft. In the afternoon take the tenders to visit Bradshaw rock art sites in the cliffs.

Awake off the stunning landscape of the mouth of the Drysdale River. After breakfast enjoy a tender excursion to witness crocodiles and flying foxes and later watch the sunset from a deserted beach.

An early morning cruise past Cape Londonderry, the northernmost point of mainland Western Australia, to Glycosmis Falls, where water thunders into the sea. Then you can explore the Lost City with its stunning art sites.

At sunrise head out on tenders at high tide for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure along the majestic, cathedral-like gorge of the King George River. Approach the twin King George Falls, which have an uninterrupted vertical drop of more than 80 metres, and head underneath for a refreshing shower, Kimberley style.

In the early morning ANDA will head up to the mouth of the Berkeley River. Depart on tenders to take in waterfalls and ancient sandstone escarpments or fish off the flat rocks for barramundi. Savour a last night under the Kimberley’s carpet of stars while you cruise down the Cambridge Gulf towards Wyndham.

Arrive into the port in the early morning, say farewell to the crew and take a private flight from Wyndham to Darwin International Airport.

ANDA is available for charter in The Kimberley from May to September from AUD$175,000 per week.  Those interested in chartering M/Y ANDA should contact their preferred broker or her central agents, Ocean Alliance, on the details below.
