    “Day one in the Kimberley: L’Austral’s day starts early with Zodiacs readied, expedition team primed, guests settled onboard and we are away heading between the stunning gorges up the King George River towards the massive cliffs that mark the highest single drop waterfall in the Kimberley region. King George Falls. The temperature is milder than usual, with scattered cloud, stark white gum trees with bright green foliage line the edge of the the precipitous cliffs - nature at her magnificent best - this feels like an expedition into the unknown. Some of us climb to the top of the falls, rewarded with a cooling swim in the freshwater pools, others enjoy a refreshing shower as their Zodiac nudges beneath the waterfalls, cool in the heat of the day. And this is just the start.”
