Australia Cruises

Discover Australia’s beautiful coastal waters, islands and river scenery that few get the opportunity to see. Relax in good company with plenty of activities and on-shore excursions to add to the enjoyment.

The Small Ship Experience

Our intimate small ships are the perfect way to explore Australia’s nature filled rivers, reefs and coastal waters. Each day begins with a freshly cooked breakfast before a well-planned programme of activities – from snorkelling to guided shore walks or simply relaxing on the sundeck.

The ships are small with a limited number of window or balcony cabins, an attentive and knowledgeable crew and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Evening is the time for dining, a leisurely cocktail and, hopefully, a beautiful sunset.

Activities and Excursions

Our river and coastal cruises are land as well as water experiences. Much of the remote shoreline is only accessible by boat and there are plenty of nature walks, barbeques and beach activities to enjoy. On board there can be informative sessions on local marine life and landscapes or, on our coastal cruises, you can get up close with a spot of swimming or coral viewing.

Your Accommodation

All our cabins and staterooms can be upgraded to sea or river view. All are en suite with shower and toilet and are well fitted with wardrobe, dressing table and double or twin beds.

Each ship has a relaxing sundeck, dining room and lounge, where guests can chat about their day’s experiences.

On-board Dining

All meals, tea and coffee, as well as shore barbeques are included.

Breakfast, lunches and dinners are freshly prepared and cooked by an on-board chef. Served in the dining room, they are often the chance to share stories and get to know your fellow guests.

Australia small ship cruises last from 4 to 11 days and can be fitted into any Australia holiday.
