Cruise the wild west

MONT­GOMERY REEF KIM­BER­LEY COAST

Cruise Passenger - - PUBLISHER’S LETTER -

Ex­plore Western Aus­tralia’s Kim­ber­ley coast with a cruise to suit any bud­get.

Mont­gomery Reef is one of the won­ders of the Kim­ber­ley coast. It ap­pears to rise from the ocean like a gi­ant whale on a fall­ing tide, with wa­ter cas­cad­ing from the struc­ture as it emerges. Tur­tles, manta rays, black-tipped reef sharks and dugongs con­gre­gate around the wa­ter falls to feed. It cov­ers 400 square kilo­me­tres, mak­ing it Aus­tralia’s largest in­shore reef. Zo­di­acs are a great way to see this spec­ta­cle.
