(11 a.m. AEST) -- A Kimberley coastal cruise aboard Coral Discoverer will be featured in a unique ‘broadcast event’ this weekend. ‘The Kimberley Cruise: Australia’s last great wilderness’ is part of the new ‘slow TV’ craze -- programs that involve watching long activities for several hours. The show will be condensed to three hours on SBS on Sunday night but runs for 17 hours on SBS Viceland next Saturday, 19 January.

The groundbreaking forum was a perfect fit for Coral Expeditions’ approach to travel, said the company’s commercial director, Jeff Gillies. “To go slow, immerse yourself and take the time to explore the lesser known parts of Australia.”

Gary Wilson, Coral Expeditions’ Senior Master added: “The footage captured by the film crew really highlighted the best of our Kimberley expedition. From hungry crocodiles to frolicking humpbacks, and rushing tides to islands emerging from the sea, this trip had it all. The film makers have captured a unique insight into life at sea with a range of challenging camera angles and capturing crew behind the scenes and in action in a truly authentic manner.”

The pioneering Australian cruise line has offered to mail viewers a free Kimberley cruise map to follow the chart of Coral Discoverer.
