True North

North Star is one of the unique adventure-cruise operators globally and the winner of numerous excellence awards. The company offers cruise options all around the Australian coastline and in the stunning waters of Papua New Guinea. All cruises are activity-based and specifically designed for the most discerning adventurer.

They are also the only cruise operator who travels with a full-time onboard helicopter! Six full-sized expedition vessels allow passengers to experience this vast wilderness in small groups and to do ‘what they want, when they want.’ With this experience, it’s no wonder our guests consistently respond with “That’s the best holidays I have ever had”!

Cruise options include the flagship “Kimberley Wilderness Cruise” – a 6/7 or 13-night panorama of rugged mountains, spectacular gorges, and majestic waterfalls; the “West Coast Explorer” – a voyage of discovery including the Abrolhos Islands and Ningaloo Reef; “Coral Atoll” cruises to the Rowley Shoals – the world’s last great underwater wilderness; the “West Papua Discoverer” – an expedition for the true adventurer; the “Adventures in Paradise” cruise – an opportunity to explore untamed Papua New Guinea in absolute comfort; the “Adventures In Paradise Extended” – experience the rarely visited Louisiade Archipelago; “Sydney Rocks” – discover wilderness on the doorstep of Australia’s largest city and, the “Southern Safari” – a safari at sea from Adelaide to Ceduna including famed Kangaroo Island!

All cruises are designed to allow passengers the opportunity to ‘experience the destination’ – daily activities include scenic walks, helicopter flights, fishing, snorkeling, culture, picnics, nature, diving, exploring, and much more!

The True North features the ultimate in comfort and style! Guest numbers are limited (36), and an Australian crew (20) provides personalized service. The ship offers several lavish vantage points, including a sundeck, an observation lounge, and a ship’s lounge/bar. Multiple expedition vessels take guests away in small groups to experience wilderness ‘up close,’ and the luxury of numerous tenders also means that everybody onboard gets to do “what they want, when they want”! And to add yet another dimension to adventure, most cruise options feature an onboard helicopter! Carrying guests in air-conditioned comfort, the helicopter provides a unique opportunity to witness grandeur, a unique opportunity to fish billabongs that have never been fished, a unique opportunity to discover your own wilderness!

Cabins are spacious and feature modern décor, large en-suites, satellite telephones, and in-cabin entertainment. Fine dining is also featured onboard the True North.
