Package Details

West Australia’s Kimberley region is one of those wild, raw, places the world needs more of. The sort of rugged landscape where sunbaked air is perfumed with the delicate scent of eucalypt and history is recorded through ancient art galleries on cave walls. Coral Expeditions has been unlocking Kimberley treasures and sharing this ancient land on small ship expedition cruises for over 23 years.

In 1820 British Naval Officer Lt. Philip Parker King left an indelible mark while charting Australia’s northwest coast. Beaching his leaking cutter HMC Mermaid at low tide, the crew remained stranded on this remote coastline for 17 days while affecting repairs. The cove where King’s crew set up camp was named Careening Bay after the Mermaid’s enforced stopover.

While completing repairs the Mermaid’s carpenter carved HMC Mermaid 1820 into the bottle-shaped trunk of a boab tree 60m back from the beach. Almost 200 years later, the Mermaid Boab Tree has since split into two trunks and sports a mammoth girth of 12m. Significantly, the bulbous tree is listed on the National Register of Big Trees and the carpenter’s careful inscription now stands almost as tall as a person.

  • 10 nights cruising the stunning Kimberly from Broome to Darwin aboard Coral  Adventurer
  • Plus 1 night complimentary pre-cruise at the Cable Beach Resort and Spa in Broome
