Indigenous wildlife, vibrant cities and aboriginal culture await you ‘down under’, while Singapore and Indonesia add the perfect twist to the end of your voyage. Start your adventure in one of the world’s most exciting, must-visit modern cities – Sydney. You’ll have the chance to climb the famous Harbour Bridge, tour the majestic Opera House, and explore the Royal Botanical Gardens before heading for the charming sights of Brisbane.

This is your opportunity to discover the sandy beaches of Australia’s famous Gold Coast, visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, or take a cruise along the charming Brisbane River. Next up is Hamilton Island. One of the 74 Whitsunday Islands it’s superbly situated in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef – which can be explored by catamaran, snorkelling or semi-submersible submarine. A tour to the Whitsunday’s stunning Whitehaven Beach is also not to be missed. Black Watch then takes you on a scenic cruise along the mesmerising Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Boasting 400 coral varieties, 1,500 species of tropical fish and crystalline blue water, you are sure to be inspired by the views of this spectacular sight. Your final port of call ‘down under’ is Darwin, one of Australia’s mustvisit destinations thanks to its tropical climate, diverse sights and extensive list of attractions to uncover. Whether you choose to wander the city’s pretty streets and charming avenues or head out into the famous Outback, you won’t be disappointed. You can also discover the history and culture of the Tiwi people on a visit to a modern day Aboriginal community, or go in search of crocodiles in the coastal wetlands. Komodo Island then kicks off the Asian leg of your cruise, and this is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to seek out Komodo Dragons – the largest living species of lizard on earth – on an organised Shore Tour to their natural habitat. Alternatively, visit the Pink Beach, which earned its name from sand that’s tinted by tiny fragments of red coral. Before disembarking your cruise in Port Klang, there’s ample time to see the highlights of Singapore, including the Merlion Park, Gardens by the Bay and the iconic Raffles Hotel.
