Australia’s Pacific Passage : Hobart to Cairns

Hobart to Cairns8 nightsAll InclusiveFrom $3,990.00* PP

Settle into the rhythm of the ocean on our voyage sailing from Hobart to Cairns. After completing a season exploring Tasmania’s pristine wilderness, this voyage will position Coral Discoverer for an expedition through Cape York & Arnhem Land and the start of the 2023 Kimberley season.

Mingle with crew aboard a working expedition ship, share like-minded company with fellow travellers and take time to relax with a good book on the deck. Fill your days with fresh air, a rolling ocean and valuable time to yourself as you find solitude amidst migratory seabirds, marine life, open horizons and star-filled dark sky nights.

If you relish the adventure of an ocean crossing, we invite you to join us and take the opportunity to disconnect with 8 nights at sea.


  • Find peace and solitude with time to disconnect
  • Mingle with our seafaring crew and learn the basics of life at sea
  • Learn from our onboard expedition crew delivering a series of themed presentations
  • Relax on deck and take in wide-open skies and rolling ocean
  • Stargaze at night, free from light pollution
  • Enjoy the convivial company of fellow passengers and maritime crew as we share meals and stories together along the way



Board Coral Discoverer in Hobart this morning as we cast off for Cairns. Settle into your stateroom, meet our crew and enjoy time getting to know your fellow travellers at the Captain’s Welcome Drinks.
