For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

SAIL AWAY: Ponant releases Kimberley 2023 cruises

Early birds could save up to 30 per cent on Ponant’s 2023 Kimberly Expedition season.

A Ponant Kimberley cruise is high on the bucket list for most luxury travellers. Think red soil, ochre cliffs, feisty inlets, roaring waterfalls and saltwater crocodiles.

This is a region that is popular both for beauty and adventure. And its rugged landscapes are best approached by sea.

In 2023, Ponant will offer multiple Kimberley cruise departures between April and October 2023 on Le Lapérouse or Le Soléal.

The most popular being the 10-night Australia’s Iconic Kimberley cruise which journeys between Broome and Darwin.

This Ponant Kimberley cruise is expected to sell out fast. Ponant General Manager Sales and Marketing Asia Pacific Deb Corbett said the company had already taken several pre-registrations.

“Australia’s Kimberley is one of the greatest wonders of our country, with such grandeur and majestic beauty; it’s certainly an absolute bucket list destination for both Australians and international tourists,” Corbett said.

Guests will explore the King George River on a Zodiac excursion; discover the majestic Twin Falls, the highest in Western Australia and visit the Hunter River to view the estuarine crocodiles. They will also visit Collier Bay to explore Montgomery reef.
