Coral Expeditions has launched its “Kimberley 2023 is Open Campaign” aimed to encourage Australian explorers to visit the Kimberley in 2023 and support the recovery of the region after the wet season, according to a press release.
Commercial Director Jeff Gillies said: “We strongly encourage Australians with a bucket list Kimberley expedition in mind to consider traveling this year. Exploring the Kimberley is a classic Australian adventure, and 2023 is set to have optimum conditions.
“Local industry have confirmed that Broome is open and ready to welcome visitors, however, they have been impacted by early season cancellations due to flood impact perceptions in the market. Now, after the big wet, we look forward to supporting the return to a sparkling Kimberley.”
This year Coral Expeditions celebrates 30 years of operating in the Kimberley region with over 50 sailings scheduled across the fleet from April to October. The classic ten-night “Kimberley Cruise” exploring the landscape between Broome and Darwin features expert guidance and navigation by an all-Australian crew.
Highlights of the 2023 season include:
- The tidal phenomenon of the Horizontal Falls and Montgomery Reef
- Native wildlife and birdwatching in the Lacapedes and Porosus Creek
- Admiring the waterfalls at King George River and Mitchell River
- Visiting ancient rock art galleries of Gwion Gwion and Wanjina art
- Follow in the wake of early explorer Philip Parker King and visit the historic HMAS Mermaid carved boab tree at Careening Bay

The promotion is applicable to new bookings across the 2023 season.
