North Star Cruises

North Star Cruises

There’s nothing more quintessentially Australian than the rugged terrain of the West Australian Kimberley coastline, and that’s where North Star Cruises started over 25 years ago. Now, this luxury adventure cruise line is an industry leader that offers itineraries throughout the Australian Coast, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, all while retaining a sense of adventure and focus on customer service.  

With unparalleled experience and cruising knowledge, North Star Cruises have designed their itineraries around exciting activities and purposefully avoid lengthy periods at sea. North Star Cruises’ flagship, True North, is a small expedition ship that holds just 36 guests. It is also the only adventure cruise ship in the Southern Hemisphere that features an air-conditioned Eurocopter which is utilised by the crew and guests to enhance their voyage.

The on shore activities arranged by North Star aim to let you experience the destination in full, whether it’s scenic walks, fishing, picnics, snorkelling or even helicopter flights. At the end of the day, you can enjoy the top-notch facilities of the True North and relax in luxurious accommodation.

Our friendly cruise consultants can be reached on 1300 769 228 if you have any questions about holidaying with North Star Cruises. We can help you arrange your cruise, flights, accommodation and travel insurance, so don’t hesitate to give us a call or email via the form below.

Cruise Ships


Life on board the True North is aimed at adults, meaning that it may not be the best option for a family holiday with young children. Check with your Cruiseabout consultant before booking as there are no dedicated kids’ facilities on board.


Passengers on board the True North will be treated to cuisine that embodies the multi-faceted flavours of Australia. The ship’s menus are inspired by each destination and incorporate local ingredients to create dishes that are organic and sustainable. What really makes North Star Cruises stand out though, is the line’s genuine openness. Guests will have the chance to accompany the head chef on a fishing trip to catch that evening’s meal. After watching the day’s catch be skilfully transformed in the Galley, passengers enjoy dinner on the lower deck dining room amongst panoramic views and stylish décor – it doesn't get much fresher than that!

Activities & Entertainment

North Star Cruises aims to get passengers out and about in the wilderness, but that doesn't mean the True North falls short when it comes to hospitality. On board guests can enjoy a forward observation lounge, an al fresco bar, a ship’s lounge, and a sports deck, as well as presentations from the ship’s resident naturalist. The accommodations are spacious and stylish, featuring modern décor and ensuite facilities. The True North also boasts 6 fully-equipped small expedition tinnies that guests can enjoy on daily basis. With so many boats available, you’ll be able to enjoy doing exactly what activities when you want to with a like-minded group. No one misses out on the True North, and that’s another one of the things that makes North Star Cruises stand out from the crowd.
