An unspoilt coast is ripe for exploration

Late spring is the ideal time to explore the unspoilt Kimberley coast of Australia, replete with cinematic inlets and waterfalls such as the King George Falls (pictured) accessible only by boat: Orion Cruises, Oz’s own small-ship luxury specialist, is now taking bookings for all Kimberley expeditions (www.orionexpeditions.com; from £5,200 per person, seven nights all-inclusive). Frequent land incursions to visit the region’s plentiful Aboriginal rock art sites are par for every itinerary.
