WHY WE THINK YOU WILL LOVE IT:

  • You will enjoy the Aussie's summer - its beaches, its natural wonders its unique creatures and learning about Aboriginal culture and understanding their art form. (Aboriginals did not have a written language.)
  • You will enjoy the yawning landscapes, flora and fauna, rain forests and deep gorges
  • You will enjoy a cable car ride across the three sisters at Blue Mountain just outside Sydney. On the same tour say hello to kangaroos, wombats and emus. You can repeat this wildlife visit in Darwin where you can take a boat ride on the Adelaide River - observe sea crocodiles take their prey
  • You will hug yourself in excitement as you ride the Karunga raliway over the rainforest in Cairns 
  • Your side trip to Bali - favourite playground of the Aussies -- worthy of the extra night you will spend here - have a romantic evening at a beach restaurant with Balinese music in the background and waves lapping at your feet
  • Your return to Australia at Brome - a camel ride along the beach or a side trip to Kimberley
  • Along the way you may even see dinosaur footprints at low tide -- impressions from over 120 million years ago
  • You will enjoy the burgeoning cities of Australia -- the most iconic being Sydney harbour. Walk along its harbour to the Rocks, once prison cells converted to charming boutiques and bars. This all with a full view of the Sydney bridge and the Opera House. Bondi beach is in walking distance from there. 
  • You will enjoy the wines of Australia - differing in taste from acidy in New South Wales to mild in South Australia.
  • You will love the towns - all with modernity with its past kept in tact. You may enjoy the little trivia such as "Victoria Lace" in Melbourne - scrap metal used to beautify balconies in houses.

IMAGINE

  • Being welcomed aboard Oceania's Regatta in one of the most heralded harbours of the world - Sydney
  • Your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Hotel - with its view of the harbour
  • Sitting in silence taking in the sights at a Sydney's Rocks bistro
  • Your onboard lifestyle -- the services, the Jacques Pepin inspired cuisine -- the entertainment particularly on sea days -- new found friends with similar interests to yours
  • Your reaction as an Emu approaches - sees itself in the lens of your camers and pecks at it
  • The "am I awake" feeling as you cable ride in Blue Mountains or train ride on the Karunga outside Cairns
  • Appreciating Aboriginal culture and art -- recent findings suggest their existence in Australia 65,000 years BP.
  • Your camel ride or observing the dexterity of kitesurfers at Geraldon - a top three kitesurfing location
  • The beauty of the landscape, craggy at the west, the treachery of the outback, beautiful beaches virtually all around, vineyards and excellent wines in abundance, and more.
  • Penguins walk by you in from sea on their way to their rooks at Phillip Island
  • Celebrating Christmas aboard and Boxing Day in Bali
  • Bringing in the New Year 13 to 16 hours before our family and friends at home in Western Australia - Perth

We can take your there!

"... years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So, sail away from the safe harbour, EXPLORE, DREAM, DISCOVER" ... Mark Twain
