Best Australian Adventure ExperienceThe TRUE NORTH is the first ever three category winner at the prestigious Gold List Awards.  The Gold List Awards are one of the most comprehensive luxury travel surveys undertaken by any Australian publication, with this year’s Gold List celebrating its 9th .

The awards are the result of a survey in which thousands of Luxury Travel Magazine readers and Virtuoso travellers are asked to nominate their favourite hotels, spas, cruise lines, airlines and destinations in over 34 individual categories.

Australia’s premier adventure-cruise ship, True North, scooped 2013 Gold Awards in three categories:

  • Best Small Luxury Cruise Ship
  • Best Luxury Cruise Company
  • Best Australian Adventure Experience

Peter Trembath, General Manager at True North Adventure Cruises is delighted with the results. “The fact that the Gold List is voted for by a large database of consumers and end-users  gives the Gold List that extra credibility and we are very excited  to be the first-ever winner of three Gold List awards in the one year.”
Best Luxury Cruise ShipTRUE NORTH pioneered luxury adventure cruising along the Kimberley coast over 25 years ago. Sailings are activity based and access some of the most remote and unspoilt coastal areas of Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.  TRUE NORTH’s flagship ‘Kimberley Wildness Cruise’ departs between April and September and features 7 to 13-day itineraries which include  the Kimberley’s spectacular gorges, waterfalls, islands and rugged coastline.

Daily activities include scenic walks, fishing, snorkelling, diving, picnics and helicopter flights. Shore excursions are accessed via TRUE NORTH’s fleet of 6 dedicated expedition boats and state-of-the-art ship’s helicopter. An extremely knowledgeable and all-Australian crew of 20 including an on-board naturalist ensure that the TRUE NORTH experience is unparalleled.

Style, comfort and exceptional food and wine are at the heart of a TRUE NORTH experience. All cabins feature modern décor, en-suites and entertainment facilities, while other onboard facilities include an observation lounge, sundeck and alfresco bar. Modern Australian cuisine prepared with locally sourced seasonal ingredients is complimented by TRUE NORTH’s outstanding West Australian wine selection.Best Luxury Cruise Company
