Our 6-star ultra-luxury ocean cruises in Australia will immerse you in lands of pristine beauty, breathtaking landscapes, and unique wildlife.
At Australia’s heart a red desert stretches to the turquoise ocean of the Kimberley Coast, a region blessed with ample natural wonders such as the Horizontal waterfalls. While the famed East Coast is an aquatic paradise, fringed by tropical and vibrant reefs. Hidden within the country’s diverse terrain is the story of Australia’s Indigenous people, told through sacred and enduring rock art, found throughout the Kimberley and Arnhem Land.
Enjoy the diverse Australian landscapes through a discovery lens, with ample experiences to delight thrill-seekers. Fly over remote waterfalls in one of Scenic Eclipse’s helicopters^, discover an exhilarating Zodiac journey down hard-to-reach waterways where crocodiles lurk, or hike along bush tracks past wildflowers and spot wildlife with your Discovery Team and expert local guides.
Australia’s Indigenous people have the oldest surviving culture in the world, one that you can gain a greater appreciation for through the local indigenous guide-led tours; rock art viewings at galleries such as Gwion Gwion, which dates back 12,000 years; and cultural immersive experiences such as a traditional smoking ceremony or bush food tasting.
Discover a verdant land comprising of one of the world’s most remarkable and precious environments –Australia’s Kimberley Coast. Marvel in the vivid contrasting colours and pristine wilderness boasting deep gorges, rainforests, and waterfalls. Discover more than 900 islands along the Queensland coastline, with swaying coconut palms, turquoise waters and white sand beaches from Fraser Island, Airlie Beach to Cairns. Or be immersed in ancient Indigenous cultures and explore the natural wonders of Australia’s national parks and stunning coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. Soak up the scenery in comfort on board your sophisticated Scenic Eclipse Discovery Yacht.
In the northern reaches of Australia, look for kangaroos bounding over open plains, wallabies hiding in rocky crevices, saltwater and freshwater crocodiles frequenting waterways, and maybe even monitor lizards, frilled neck lizards and echidna. The ocean, in particular the Great Barrier Reef, is thriving with marine life including the endangered green sea turtle, while twitchers will be in heaven with hundreds of species of bird to watch for.
