Small ship cruise line Coral Expeditions has created two special departures “Across the Top” of Australia for early in the new year.
The new itineraries will operate between Broome and Cairns in January 2022 with only two 18-night voyages planned on the company’s state of the art 2019 expedition ship Coral Adventurer.
Inspired by the demand for existing Kimberley and Arnhem Land itineraries, the voyage takes a small number of like-minded guests through 4,000km of Australia’s great rivers, pristine outer reefs, and ancient traditional communities seen by very few in their lifetime. The expeditions will be hosted by Coral Expeditions‘ renowned guides who will share insights into the rich history, geology, and indigenous cultures of the region.
Highlights of the 18-night voyage include birdwatching at some of Australia’s most vibrant Important Bird Areas, such as the Lacepede Islands and Adele Island; the thrill of riding the tidal rapids through the Horizontal Falls aboard a Zodiac and the chance to feel the power of majestic King George Falls during the wet season; and an opportunity to stand at the tip of Australia on Cape York to enjoy a sunset or sunrise toast.
On the January 1 and January 20, 2022, departures, guests will also beachcomb and explore remote islands and sand cays of the outer reaches of the Coral Sea; dive with sharks and diverse marine species at Osprey and Holmes Reef – amongst the best dive sites in the world; and meet traditional elders visit sacred rock art sites at Stanley and Groote Eylandt.
