Australian Geographic & Coral Expeditions Partnership
An All-Australian Alliance
Our partnership with Australian Geographic established in 2018, is an alliance that brings together over 65 years of shared passion and experience for education, discovery, travel, and science. Together we develop a series of annual expeditions with a curated program of scientific, cultural, historic, and nature expertise that come to life onboard. Our partnership also supports the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year and the Australian Geographic Adventure Awards, inspirational pathways through which Australian photographers and adventurers are nurtured.
Join us and be a part of this series and help contribute to the ongoing funding of the Australian Geographic Society to deliver their programs, advocacy, conservation projects, and scientific endeavours.
Australian Geographic Partnered Expeditions
Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year Competition 2024
The Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition, run by South Australian Museum, continues to be a brilliant showcase for the unique flora, fauna and landscapes of this part of the world. Coral Expeditions are thankful and grateful to be a partner of the awards in what is now our 7th year. Every year we are inspired by the striking photography that is entered across all categories. We, along with our guest community of over 60,000 past passengers, have a shared love and curiosity of nature. We are lucky to be able to explore some of the most remote natural places in our region year-round. This partnership with the South Australian Museum and Australian Geographic is such a natural fit for us and one we look forward to continuing long into the future.
It’s always a pleasure to welcome the overall winner onboard to see what we do and to share stories and insights with our guests – whether it’s to explore the iconic Kimberley or to venture further afield to remote Papua New Guinea. We had 2020 winner Matt Beetson join our 10-night Kimberley cruise, and 2021 winner Scott Portelli joined our “Solar Eclipse” voyage. We look forward to welcoming 2022 winner Ashlee Jensen and 2023 winner Samual Markham onboard to explore with us in the near future too!
The 2024 competition opened 08 Nov 2023 and will close 06 Feb 2024. We encourage adventurous photographers to enter! View more competition details HERE >
