Best for Adventure Award: TRUE NORTH

This one-ship line packs a lot of punch. North Star's True North is the only adventure vessel in the southern hemisphere, featuring an on-board helicopter and six expedition boats led by six Australian guides and catering for just 36 passengers. Expertly-run activities, from fishing and diving to heli-picnics, bring out the best of our west and south coasts, the Kimberley, Melanesia, West Papua and PNG.
