    I’m planning a trip from Brisbane to the Kimberley’s for 2019 or more likely 2020. I have the WA Guide which is fantastic reading (available free now from <span class=”skimlinks-unlinked”></span>) and all the brilliant information here (thanks by the way, really gets the enthusiasm going).

    I have great guides for Qld coast up to Cairns, which leaves a gap from Cairns to Darwin. I’d like to run down through the gulf as well to below and around Groote Eylandt.

    I’m just wondering which guide is considered the best. I looked at one site which measures in cables, probably very good but a bit old school for me.

    Any other info, sailing/wind tips, pictures or destinations from Cairns to Darwin worth a visit would be great.

    We prefer the more out of the way places.

    Also any advice on travelling out to Rowley Shoals

    Hi Dave,
    We sailed WA/ Kimberley to Mooloolaba in 2017. Our travels included some time at Groote Eytland. We followed the coast around the Gulf. Our blog can be found at (search ‘Sojourn’) – crew Janie and Kevin. The guide by John Knight was helpful. We are heading back west in 2018 for our fifth season in the Kimberley – totally hooked on cruising and the Kimberley.
