Australia's Wild North
1 x 52'
Ben Cropp and his sons, Dean and Adam, explore the vast and remote coastline of Australia’s far north from their Vessel, Freedom II. It’s an adventure along the top end - Cape York, the Gulf of Carpentaria, Arnhem Land, and the Kimberley coast. Very few road tracks lead to this remote area, but by boat, Ben and his family can explore it all.
They meet aborigines in the wild on out-stations, still harvesting their food using their forefathers ways, by primitive spear. The Aboriginal rock art is spectacular, magnificent Wandjina paintings depicting ancient legends and even the early explorers that visited Australia.
The fishing is fantastic, prolific wildlife and crocodiles abound in this region. Ben also visits his dream place: a six-mile deep water inlet at King George River which terminates at Twin Waterfalls, tumbling 100 metres from the river above to the gorge below. This inlet is alive with fish, mud crabs, dugong and crocodiles.
It’s an adventure expedition – to a great wilderness of rugged beauty, devoid of civilization and the impact of man. Download the Ben Cropp Collection Flyer
