From Australia’s terracotta terrain to the paradisiacal South Pacific, these intoxicating expedition cruises take you closer to iconic landscapes, cultures and wildlife than ever before. Towering waterfalls, vibrant coral reefs, fascinating local tribes: Australian expeditions and South Pacific sailings are voyages of untold discovery.
Shaped by the elements and scorched by the sun, the Australian landscape is positively Martian. As unforgettable as it is unforgiving, this country offers cruise passengers immersive insights into its history and natural heritage.
Explore 40,000 years of aboriginal history through The Kimberley’s ancient rock art, discover fascinating local cultures and learn about their unique crafts and customs. Then, sail to Australia’s green and pleasant heartland: varied habitats made up of rich forests and thundering waterfalls. Journey through the Hunter River’s mangrove forest in search of saltwater crocodiles as ospreys soar overhead.
In the South Pacific, you will find exquisite vistas to rival those of Australia’s expansive coral reefs and lagoons. These islands of colour and character are paradise on Earth: nurturing tribes and cultures untouched by modern life.
South Pacific cruises are life-affirming. Meet fascinating local tribes whose way of life has barely changed for hundreds of years, and experience the monumental moai statues of Easter Island. Trek through lush vegetation in search of flying foxes and elusive Birds of Paradise, and marvel at the power behind explosive geysers.
Then, of course, there are the South Pacific’s paradisiacal beaches. Stretch out and soak up the sun before diving beneath the waves in search for marine life. Watch Juan Fernández fur seals slice through the water like pint-sized acrobats, or let the graceful sharks of Bora Bora take your breath away.
Australia cruises and South Pacific cruises take place on-board two of the most stunning vessels in the world: Silver Discoverer and Silver Explorer. These Silversea ships explore remote archipelagos and untamed landscapes while offering the comfort and indulgence of a boutique hotel.
Everything on-board these luxury cruise ships is designed to completely immerse you in Australia and the South Pacific. All ocean-view suites and ocean-view restaurants mean there are panoramic views at every turn, while the ships’ expansive decks are the perfect place to relax with a book or keep your eyes peeled for whales and dolphins.
