Cruises from Hunter River
Hunter River has its headwaters in the Kimberley region of Western Australia and flows into the NE corner of the beautiful Prince Frederick Harbour and York Sound. The river was named in 1820 by the explorer Philip Parker King, after the surgeon, James Hunter, on the ship the Mermaid. Lined with green rainforest, mangroves and soaring red cliffs, the scenery is truly spectacular. The river is noted for a distinctive rock formation at its mouth, with cliffs reaching some 200m in height.
To the north, Mt Anderson rises to an impressive 480 m.
