One of the seven wonders of the world, a World Heritage listed area and the largest marine park in the world, the Great Barrier Reef offers unsurpassed beauty in the waters off the coast of Townsville and Cairns. Small enough to access the reefs but large enough for all the comforts, your vessel showcases the vibrant contrast of the outer lying islands and the spectacular reef.

Past the Great Barrier Reef and its fringing coral reefs are the breathtaking Whitsunday Islands. A popular holiday spot in Northern Queensland, you can choose to cruise among them or stay on the islands themselves and enjoy a day cruise from there. Offering an intimate atmosphere and some of the most amazing diving and snorkelling in the world, Whitsunday Island cruises are an unforgettable experience.

Heading south Australia’s most beautiful harbour, Sydney Harbour, is one of the most popular cruising holiday destinations in the world. A fantastic way to experience the highlights of Sydney, a harbour cruise takes in the eastern suburbs’ high end residents, the upper reaches of the Lane Cove and Parramatta Rivers and of course the amazing Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

Across to South Australia, the Murray River is one of the country’s most famous bodies of water and offers a range of leisurely cruises including the iconic paddle wheeler, the Murray Princess. Murray River cruises take in the region’s spectacular landscapes, the biodiversity of the wetlands, a unique range of wildlife and the ancient Aboriginal culture.

Although not particularly well known as a cruising destination, Australia's Top End offers some unbelievable cruising options including Arnhem Land, the Coburg Peninsula and the Cape York Peninsula. With the opportunity to follow Captain Cook’s journey, this is a fantastic way to appreciate the remoteness of this region and the rich Aboriginal, Tiwi Islander and Torres Strait Islander culture.
