THE KIM­BER­LEY,WA

Australian Traveller - - The 100 -

Ah, the Kim­ber­ley. So out of reach is this myth­i­cal land, in terms of both dis­tance and fi­nan­cial means, that it may as well be Aus­tralia’s Shangri-la. To re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the re­gion’s many trea­sures – its boab tree-dot­ted coast of strik­ing red rock, the won­drously im­pos­si­ble Hor­i­zon­tal Falls, the mys­ti­cal hu­man forms de­picted in the rock art at Wary Bay, and such spec­tac­u­lar wa­ter­falls as Kings Cas­cades – you need to get to it all quickly by boat. Cruises up this way tend to start north of $10,000, but there is hope for those of us who didn’t make it big on cryp­tocur­ren­cies this year; you can al­ways roll out a swag on the deck of Ahoy Buc­ca­neers’ yacht (ahoy­buc­ca­neers.com.au), or book a cabin, for a more rea­son­able ticket to this far-flung cor­ner of ours.
