Highlights of this cruise:
The stunning harbour city, Sydney, is Australia’s oldest and largest urban centre. Its fascinating modern history began in the year 1788 with the arrival of the ‘First Fleet’ of 760 British convicts.
Gold mining and sheep breeding propelled Sydney’s development, and today it’s the largest port in the entire South Pacific. Mark Twain called it “the wonder of the world”.
Sitting on a beautiful stretch of Tasmania's North West Coast, port city Burnie may have industrial roots, but it has since reinvented itself as a creative enclave and the state's fourth largest city.
With about 40 per cent of Tasmania designated as a World Heritage Area of national parks and reserves, you can enjoy a wide range of wilderness experiences available from this laid-back market town.
Port Vila is the capital of Vanuatu, and has plenty of rambling streets and cafés to wander and appreciate. As you explore, every now and then you’ll catch yet another glimpse of the stunning harbour.
The tropical paradise of Luganville hosts some of the most beautiful beaches in the archipelago. Inland there are stunning, iridescent blue holes to discover, while offshore the diving is incredible.
Luganville, the second city of Vanuatu, lies on the largest island in the Vanuatu archipelago, Espiritu Santo. The indescribable beauty of this land of iridescent blue holes and champagne beaches, was the perfect inspiration for James A Michener when he wrote the Tales of the South Pacific.
Santo, as it’s called by the locals, is enveloped in dense verdant jungles that creep down the rugged mountain slopes to powdery white beaches. Idyllic swathes of sand such as the gorgeous Champagne Beach and Lonnoc Beach, then give way to some of the best diving in the world.
The crystal waters and spectacular reefs offer dive sites and attractions for all skill levels. There is plenty of dumped WWII memorabilia to dive over, like Million Dollar Point, and one of the most famous sites, the SS President Coolidge – the largest wreck dive in the world. It sank in 1942 after striking a friendly mine. Today, guns and helmets can still be seen lying on the deck of the ship, while deeper down you can see trucks, cannons, and ‘the Lady’, a statue of a lady riding a unicorn.
For a bit of adventure, explore Vanuatu’s largest cave, the Millennium Cave, on an action-packed journey through tropical forest. Scramble over boulders and rocks, cool off in the river, and soak up the pristine beauty of this unspoilt island paradise.
If you prefer something more serene, yet just as spectacular, visit one of the island’s inland blue holes. These stunning blue oases, surrounded by magnificent jungle, get their impressive colour from the purity of the water and the minerals they contain. Although they are beautiful to look at, the best way to really appreciate them is to jump in and enjoy them first hand.
This South Seas ‘Riveria’ has a distinctive French flavour among its boutiques and cafés. Noumea enjoys more sunshine than any other Pacific island, and beach lovers will fall for its string of bays.
