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

Updated: Journey complete

In September 2016, expedition cruise specialist, Roderick (Rod) Eime revisited Broome and famed Australia's North West - his third trip to the region.

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.

Rod checked out the newly renovated and Gold Award-winning Mangrove Hotel in Broome before boarding Great Escape for an intimate 4-night adventure cruise.

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.
