Escape the crowds on an Australia or New Zealand exploration cruise and discover parts of these countries that aren’t often visited or all that accessible by other means.

Australia is a land of superlatives and an exploration cruise in this part of the world will reveal a range of sights and experiences that are hard to beat. Whether you take in the Great Barrier Reef, Ayer’s Rock, the rugged Kimberley coast or the wildlife, you’ll be left breathless by what you experience. 

New Zealand similarly has a wealth of wonderful landscapes that can be explored on an exploration cruise, while the country’s sub-Antarctic Islands are wildlife hotspots with whales and dolphins found in large numbers here.

Beyond the two headline destinations there are a number of idyllic islands to uncover as well. Isolated amidst huge stretches of sea are Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia with landscapes ranging from the mountains of Papua New Guinea to empty atolls and beguiling beaches. 

Explore these Pacific Islands on an exploration cruise to discover a combination of culture and nature. Excursions visit traditional settlements while the warm waters are considered a hotspot for divers and snorkelers hoping to sea a huge range of fish, rays and sharks.
