North Star Cruises Australia pioneered luxury adventure-cruising along the Kimberley coast more than 25 years ago and the ship was in Sydney recently to showcase their cruises to a VIP crowd.

In True North style, guests were treated to Kimberley cuisine which included delicious barramundi with Broome mango, kangaroo with wild hibiscus, pearl meat with green ant infusion, and Kimberley honey with crème fraiche dip with focaccia prepared by head chef Andy Tonge.

Laidback music was provided by Broome’s Pigram Brothers as we cruised Sydney harbour at sunset. The ship also hosted a lunch event near the Sorrento Sailing Club for guests in Victoria.

Guests were taken on a tour of this magnificent purpose built ship that travels with a full-time helicopter before Craig Howson, Director of North Star Cruises Australia welcomed everyone aboard. Andy, their on board Naturalist, presented the variety of cruises on offer, showing guests some stunning footage of the True North cruising the spectacular Kimberley coast.

I enjoyed mingling with guests to talk about the region and what touring and accommodation options are available in Broome and Kununurra pre and post their cruise. At each of the events guests had the opportunity to win a beautiful Linneys pearl bracelet.

Representatives from Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa were also on hand to discuss their range of accommodation options, Chahoya Spa & Salon, the Buddha Sanctuary, and more.

Perth guests which included past passengers, potential passengers, media and tourism industry partners enjoyed a sunset cruise last Thursday night from Henderson where we sipped fine wine, ate delicious food as the sun sank into the Indian Ocean.
