Circumnavigation of Australia – 35th Anniversary Expedition

59 Nights | Departing Darwin 7 November 2020 | Arriving Darwin 05 January 2021

Sailing aboard Coral Adventurer, our voyage will commence from Darwin on the 7th of November 2020 and undertake a full circumnavigation of the Australian Coastline over 60 days (59 nights) returning on 5th January 2021. With only 60 staterooms available for this voyage, this is an intimate and personal journey of discovery. Senior Master Gary Wilson has designed a voyage that will be a celebration of history, culture, nature and Australian Maritime history.

With our unique Xplorer tenders, explore hard-to-reach locations of historic significance or natural beauty. Visit famous places and share stories of historic maritime events that shaped our nation from ancient times to early explorers and more modern wartime.  Be immersed in the arts and cultures of the people and communities of Australia on your travels. Whether it be coastal walks, snorkelling the reef, sharing amazing wildlife encounters or just taking in the scenery, you will enjoy a unique perspective of the greatest coastline in the world. Our experienced Expedition Team, along with guest lecturers and special guests, accompany and guide our voyage. Their commentary and skill at storytelling will immerse you in the culture, history and nature of the Australian coastline.
