Australia's North West and Kimberley: Broome, Barramundi and pearls

Multiple Journeys 2005-present

Since 2005, expedition cruise specialist, Roderick (Rod) Eime has been visiting Broome, the Kimberley and the famed Australia's North West, completing numerous voyages including working as an expedition guide for major cruise companies.

The Kimberley earned iconic status after Baz Luhrmann's 2008 blockbuster 'Australia' and, love the movie or not, has ensured the ancient landscape is never far from the tourism spotlight.

Great Escape in the Kimberley

Rod has stayed at the newly renovated and Gold Award-winning Mangrove Hotel in Broome before boarding Great Escape for an intimate 4-night adventure cruise. He has also stayed at the modest Kimberley Travellers Lodge as well as the much-lauded Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa and Pinctada McAlpine House.

He has also voyaged aboard Kimberley Pearl, Reef Prince and Ponant's plush Le Laperouse. In 2024, he will board Seabourn Venture for their debut Kimberley season.

This was backed up by one of the most unusual cruise offerings in the Australian market. True North spent a week in the amazing Rowley Shoals, a little-known marine reserve 260 kilometres offshore from Broome and effectively an ‘aquarium’ in the open ocean with some of the best diving and fishing in Australia.

Rod would be delighted to discuss editorial commissions with high-end print publications or websites. Few contemporary travel writers can boast Rod's experience in this region.
