Off on True North for another Kimberley Adventure!

From this Saturday, I will be once again on True North with Christian Fletcher leading other keen Photog’s around to all the cool photographic locations to be had in this untouched wilderness.

I am expecting a great start to the season as there has been regular top ups in the Kimberley recently with Thunderstorms etc, so I look fwd to seeing what the Kimberley has up her sleeve for me this time round.

I have done this trip now, more times than I can remember and what never ceases to amaze me is just how different it is every single time!

When Flemming Bo Jensen, Dave Bettini and myself did a similar trip last year we did not see one other vessel or person for 2 weeks and 1100 NM! There are not too many places on this planet where you can cover such distances and not see anything other than raw and untouched beauty.

I will be posting live off the boat again on a daily basis if possible, so stay tuned to the blog for regular updates on our adventures!

News hot off the press is that Tom Putt is also going us for the second week and will be flying in from the Mitchell Plateau by way of the True North helicopter.

I look fwd to catching up with you soon Tom!

 

There are still cabins available on the True North with Christian Fletcher next year


Christian Fletcher is joining True North again next year on our second Kimberley cruise which is when the season is just turning and when the Kimberley is at its best. Thunderstorms most evenings and waterfalls just going nuts. The Barra are biting well at that time of year as well, so there is plenty of activities to keep yourself amused!

Xmas is coming up, so why not spoil someone close to you with the trip of a lifetime that should be on the top of everyone’s bucket list, with the bonus of being tutored by the current winner of the Australian APPA awards in the landscape category?

Christian will be on True North with myself to teach everything he knows about photography and how to get stunning landscape images of what is probably Australia’s most untouched paradise. On this years trip we cruised from Broome to Wyndham and did not see one other vessel, or one other person until we were nearly at Wyndham! Not one other soul over 1100nm!

I will be assisting Christian as need be and will also act as the guide having done 10 or more Kimberley cruises now. As you will see with my Kimberley posts from this year, the early Kimberley cruises can produce some amazing results and this cruise is still on the shoulder whereby we can be guaranteed some amazing storms, sunsets and awesome light, together with raging waterfalls and the Kimberley after the wet.

See below for the trip details.

Kimberley Gorges From 07 April 2012 To 14 April 2012
Wyndham – Hunter River/Broome, 7 Nights

The Kimberley Gorges itinerary features the northern half of the Kimberley
Ultimate cruise. Here the landscape is dominated by the Kimberley’s
stunning gorge country including the Berkeley River, the King George Falls
and the Mitchell River. Includes helicopter/aircraft transfer to Broome.

Kimberley Islands From 14 April 2012 To 20 April 2012
Broome/Hunter River – Broome, 6 Nights

The Kimberley Islands itinerary features the southern half of the Kimberley
Ultimate cruise. A totally different Kimberley experience featuring the
mighty Prince Regent, intriguing Montgomery Reef and the exhilarating
Horizontal Waterfalls. Includes helicopter/aircraft transfer from Broome.

The beauty of this trip is that you can either do the first half from Wyndham to the Hunter, or the second half from the Hunter to Broome, or both!

We are working on some incentives for this trip, so stay tuned to both Christian’s and my blog for further updates on proceedings!
