Western Australia skipper's secret

Captain Alan Martlew, Anda

Western Australia

Alan Martlew, captain of 42 metre explorerAnda, reveals the perfect anchorage by some of Australia’s most dramatic waterfalls to witness the greatest show on Earth

I’ve spent years travelling the world on various yachts to far-flung destinations, but there is so much to see in my own backyard of Australia. The King George Falls, hiding in the far north of Western Australia, is one of these highlights.

Superyachts can anchor on the sandy bottom half a mile from the shifting sandbars of the mouth of the King George River. From there we take one of Anda’s eight metre semi-rigid tenders upriver, speeding past prehistoric canyons and crocodiles basking on the riverbanks. Turning the last bend you are hit with a thunderous roar as water from the Ashton Range flows over the dramatic drop. The two falls are separated by a massive column of granite, and energetic guests can climb to the top via a track to enjoy a crocodile-free dip in the rock pools above. On return to Anda a nearby beach will have been set up with a barbecue complete with freshly harvested oysters.
