Please select your location:

Australia is an island nation with an immense and diverse coastline — and as such, it’s an ideal country to explore by cruise. We work with a select number of operators, allowing you to unearth some of the country’s scenic and natural highlights from the comfort of your ship. We’re particularly knowledgeable about expedition vessels that can reach wilderness locations only accessible from the water — including stretches of Outback. On these voyages, the focus is very much on immersing yourself in the destination through a range of activities and tours, often offered on smaller tenders. Some of our preferred voyages include those that combine the highlights of Australia and New Zealand, and expedition voyages of the remote Kimberley region.
