I have just discovered Australia’s own luxury adventure- cruise ship, The TRUE NORTH.
The Kimberley is one of the last true wildernesses: it has not been spoilt by tourism or pollution and the best way to explore this ancient region is by cruising along its coast.
The True North is a small luxury liner with just 18 cabins – serving delicious gourmet food and wine with a staff of 20 young, attractive and extremely efficient crew members. It is a top class operation whether you enjoy hiking through wilderness with their biologists, admiring the plants and birds or fishing for giant barramundi.
Offering activity-based itineraries all around the Australian coastline and adjacent to the remote jungles of West Papua and Papua New Guineat he ship allows discerning guests to experience wilderness in surroundings more akin to one of the world’s most exclusive hotels.
However, the appeal of The TRUE NORTH complete with helicopter and multiple expedition boats was always bound to attract the attention of discerning overseas travellers and, according to North Star Cruises’ general manager, Peter Trembath, the tide has begun to turn.
