True North - At a Glance

A cruise on the True North has long been regarded as one of Australia’s outstanding and most revered adventure tourism experiences. All itineraries are activity based and designed for the discerning traveller who truly wants to 'experience the destination' in some of Australia’s most remote and hard to access coastal regions.

The True North offers 'flagship' Kimberley cruises as well as several other Australian cruises

True North Luxury Kimberley Cruises

“Every day, we are exposed to new experiences and rich local history that give our family a renewed appreciation for the beauty of our home country.” - Signature Luxury Travel

The “Kimberley Wilderness Cruise” is a 7 or 13 night panorama of spectacular gorges, majestic waterfalls, islands and rugged coastline. Other cruise options include the “West Coast Explorer” which features the Abrolhos Islands, Ningaloo Reef and the Monte Bello Islands; the “Coral Atoll Cruise” to the magnificent Rowley Shoals; “Sydney Rocks”, an opportunity to discover wilderness on the doorstep of Australia’s largest city and the “Southern Safari”, a safari at sea along the stunning South Australian coast including must-see Kangaroo Island.

The True North has been designed to access wilderness, to go where no other ship can go. Spacious cabins feature modern décor with en-suites. Daily activities can include scenic walks, helicopter flights, fishing, snorkelling, cultural visits, picnics, wildflowers, bird and wildlife watching, diving, exploring and much more…

Multiple expedition vessels take guests in small groups to experience wilderness ‘up close’. The luxury of having numerous tenders also means that everyone on-board has greater opportunity to do “what they want, when they want”. Most cruise options feature a ship’s helicopter opening-up a range of options from scenic flights and heli-picnics to overnight camping adventures. Discover virtually unseen and untouched parts of Australia.
