True North - At a Glance

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

True North’s flagship “Kimberley Wilderness Cruise” is a 6 or 13 night panorama of spectacular gorges and majestic waterfalls, islands and rugged coastline.

“THE CREW OF THE TRUE NORTH ARE PERHAPS THE COMPANY’S BEST ASSET. SLEEK LUXURY YACHTS ARE RATHER GENERIC, BUT THE PEOPLE TAKING CARE OF YOU ON THE TRUE NORTH ARE IN A CLASS OF THEIR OWN. THEY UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR METICULOUS DETAIL AND MAINTAINING A RESPECTFUL ATTITUDE, BUT NEVER ALLOW THIS TO INTERFERE WITH LARRIKIN HUMOUR”. LUXURY TRAVEL & STYLE.

Other trip options include the “West Coast Explorer” to the Abrolhos Islands and Ningaloo Reef; the “Coral Atoll Cruise” to the 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 Kangaroo Island.

The True North has been designed to go where no other ship can go, with high levels of comfort and style. All cabins are spacious and feature modern décor and en-suite facilities. Daily activities can include scenic walks, helicopter flights, fishing, snorkelling, cultural visits, picnics, flora, bird and wildlife watching, diving, exploring and much more…

Multiple expedition vessels or ‘tenders’ take guests in small groups to experience the wilderness ‘up close’ and, the luxury of having numerous tenders means that everyone onboard has greater opportunity to do “what they want, when they want”.

Most cruise options feature an onboard helicopter opening up a whole range of options from scenic flights and heli-picnics to overnight camping adventures. Discover virtually unseen and untouched parts of Australia.

"True North The most fantastic trip I have ever experienced."
Sir Peter Derham, former Chairman, See Australia
