1 Darwin
Welcome on board ultra-luxurious Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yacht™.  Settle into your spacious suite and enjoy the first destination of this incredible journey.  Darwin is the tropical capital city of the Northern Territory.  It has a vast, diverse and captivating history, from its World War II survival stories, to the bombing of Darwin and Cyclone Tracy, set against the backdrop of its sparkling harbour. (D)
2 Day at sea - Pulau Meatimiarang (Technical Stop)
Enjoy a leisurely day at sea to take advantage of the luxurious on board facilities. Relax on your private terrace or verandah and enjoy personalised butler service, revitalise your mind, body and soul in the luxurious 550m2 Senses Spa with a massage, take a class at the POWER: Yoga and Pilates Studio, or learn about Australia’s history, flora and fauna from your expert Discovery Team who will be sharing their unrivalled expertise through enrichment programs. (B/L/D)
3 At Sea
Today is another day at sea. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with new friends at one of the many bars, soak in one of the Scandinavian-inspired outdoor vitality pools, take in the view through the on board Swarovski telescopes in the Observation Lounge, and savour culinary delights with up to 10 truly all-inclusive world-class dining experiences. (B/L/D)
4 King George River
At 112 kilometres long, time spent at King George River and its thundering twin falls is an unforgettable experience. Make your way along the river’s tranquil waters, through towering gorges – home to Brahminy kites, egrets, and kingfishers – and marvel at the sheer 100-metre drop of King George Falls. Discovery: If tides are favourable, a Zodiac discovery excursion of the river may be available. (B/L/D)
5 Hunter River & Mitchell Falls
Located in Prince Regent National Park, the Hunter River is an aqua blue highway flanked by pockets of emerald rainforests, vast swathes of mangroves and soaring red cliffs. Explore this magical waterway, which is said to have the highest proportion of saltwater crocodiles in the Kimberley. Later you’ll have the opportunity to venture further into the Kimberley outback to Mitchell Falls, a dramatic four-tiered waterfall that has been carved out over millennia. Its deep emerald pools contrast with the rugged red sandstone of the Mitchell Plateau, creating a mesmerising oasis. View the breathtaking Mitchell Falls from the air during a ride in one of our two on board helicopters^. (B/L/D)
6 Bigge Island & Low Rocks
Bigge Island is a haunting place of great silence where you’ll gain a true sense of the antiquity of our country. Rise early this morning to see the renowned Wandjina (Kaiara or Sea Wandjina) spirit paintings whose origins remain shrouded in mystery and controversy. Time and weather permitting, you can walk to the far side of the island to view the unique Bradshaw (Gwion Gwion) paintings. Discovery: Immerse yourself in the local culture during a traditional smoking ceremony followed by tea with local indigenous artists. (B/L/D)
7 Montgomery Reef & Raft Point
Magically rising out of the sea at low tide, Montgomery Reef is a transient landscape of coral reef and waterfalls rich with marine life. Green turtles often swim in the narrow corridors of coral around the edge of the reef, so keep your eyes peeled. Discovery: Take a Zodiac cruise with your expert Discovery Team around the waterfalls and maybe even spot manta rays, dolphins, black-tipped reef sharks or dugongs. You will also visit Raft Point, an imposing bluff in the middle of Doubtful Bay, home to an impressive indigenous rock art gallery. (B/L/D)
8 Talbot Bay & Horizontal Falls
Talbot Bay’s spectacular Horizontal Waterfalls is a natural wonder to add to your Australian bucket list. This phenomenon – which, incredibly, is still relatively unknown – is caused by a combination of geology and tides. Discovery: If time and tides permit, your expert Discovery Team may be able to take you right through the fascinating falls and around the narrow waterways of Talbot Bay in the Zodiac. Later, choose to embark on a challenging 9.5 kilometre walk into the Kimberley’s remote wilderness. (B/L/D)
9 Buccaneer Archipelago
Overnight, your Discovery Yacht will cruise across the mouth of King Sound into the famous Buccaneer Archipelago. This spectacular maze of more than 800 islands is jaw-dropping for its vivid colours: iron-rich red rock, lush green pockets of rainforest, striking turquoise ocean and pristine white beaches. Enjoy the picturesque scenery while you relax on board in ultra-luxury. (B/L/D)
10 Lacepede Islands Nature Reserve
The stunning coast of Lacepede Islands Nature Reserve was named by French explorer Baudin in 1801 to commemorate his naturalist compatriot, Count Lacepede. In the past, Macassan boats used for fishing trepang (sea cucumbers) frequented these islands, but today they are an important nesting site for green turtles, and home to large colonies of lesser frigate birds and Brown Boobies. Discovery: Your expert Discovery Team will take you on an exhilarating Zodiac discovery excursion, weather permitting. (B/L/D)
