Hotel Overview


Along the wild and wonderful Kimberley coastline in Western Australia.

Rooms on the True North

The True North boats offer rooms that range in size and are located on different decks. Choose between Explorer Class Staterooms on the upper deck, River Class Doubles with panormic vistas on the middle level, or Ocean class Twins on the lower deck.

Food and Facilities

Dining onboard the boat is a stylish but casual affair to be enjoyed as a group.  The evening begins with hors d’oeuvres served in the ship’s lounge and is followed by a menu of modern Australian dishes. Signature dishes include freshly caught oysters, sashimi and barramundi, but meat lovers will enjoy the lamb, Angus or delicate Wagyu beef dishes. Other facilities include a sundeck, observation lounge, and sports deck. Your cruise will also come complete with a specialist guide and a naturalist who will keep you entertained and informed as you explore the wilderness areas of Kimberley.

Activities at the True North

The Kimberley coastline is truly one of the world’s last great wilderness areas where you can see spectacular waterfalls and awe inspiring gorges, ancient cultural history and indigenous rock art. Explore secluded beaches and river inlets – waters which are famous for having an abundance of wildlife – not to mention the iconic King George and Prince Regent Falls, Hunter River and Montgomery Reef.
