Southern Australia Coastal Discovery

Embrace your inner explorer and island-hop from South Australia’s Spencer Gulf, to a treasure trove of natural beauty in Tasmania. Discover the striking coastline of the Jussieu Peninsula, or take to the waters to snorkel with playful Australian sea lions at nearby Hopkins Island. Explore secluded waterways of Kangaroo Island to contemplate its incredible bushfire recovery, before setting sail for the remote Hunter Island Group in north-western Tasmania and its bounty of natural and human history. Along the east coast, pristine white beaches peppered with orange lichen-covered boulders, iridescent blue waters, and towering pink granite peaks set a striking stage for your adventures on the Freycinet Peninsula. Meander through the tall eucalypt forests of Maria Island, Zodiac-cruise its crystal waters, marvel at ‘painted’ cliffs, or seek out some of the wildlife that calls it home – from Bennett’s wallabies and wombats, to potoroos, pademelons and penguins. Collate a treasured set of memories from your adventures amongst these spectacular southern isles.

This expedition is subject to regulatory approval and only open to Australian and New Zealand residents.
