Expedition cruise holidays to Australasia & the Pacific
Australasia and the South Pacific are ideal destinations for an expedition cruises, with plenty of opportunity for discovering wild coastlines, remote islands, unique tribal cultures and kaleidoscopic coral reefs teeming with life.
In Australia cruise around northern Queensland to see the wild beauty of the region and the Great Barrier Reef, drift along the dramatic coast of the remote Kimberley or set sail for Tasmania to discover a pristine wilderness and untouched coast. Alternatively, cruise around New Zealand's rugged shores, perhaps spending time in the sun-kissed Bay of Islands or exploring fragile, sub-Antarctic islands home to thousands-strong colonies of sea birds. Then, sail out into the Pacific's deep blue to hop between idyllic islands, taking in the Melanesian Ring of Fire or uncovering the cultural diversity of Papua New Guinea, dropping anchor in tropical fjords and flooded craters.
