Geraldton to Broome

Geraldton to Broome Cruise is your once-a-year chance to explore the little-explored islands and celebrated archipelagos of northern Western Australia on board Starsand.

In previous years we’ve departed from Fremantle for this 18-day odyssey. This year sees us leave from Geraldton, so we’re right into the good stuff – first stop the gorgeous Abrolhos Islands – much sooner, leaving us more time to explore.

We’ll sail to the Abrolhos – one of WA’s hidden jewels for snorkelling, fishing and historical significance – before heading up to Shark Bay, Coral Bay, the spectacular Ningaloo Reef, Exmouth and the Montebello Islands. The trip finishes on a high as we sail through the Dampier Archipelago to the coastal pearl that is Broome.
