Australia’s Hidden Treasures

From USD $8,900


Join us for a journey to see one of Australia’s hidden treasures. Feel the thunder of waterfalls, explore spectacular gorges, witness variations of Aboriginal rock art, and look for West Australia’s wildlife in destinations that in many cases are accessible only by ship. Cruise by Zodiac through an untamed wilderness to spot wallabies, crocodiles, and osprey nests ashore, and listen to expert interpretations of ancient rock paintings first drawn by the traditional land owners eons ago. Explore narrow channels, searching for White-bellied Sea-Eagles, Black-necked Storks, kingfishers, kites, and other regal birds in the mangroves and mud flats. Throughout the voyage learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable on board Expedition Team.

Vessel Type: Luxury Expedition Length: 338 Feet/102.9 Metres Passenger Capacity: 120 passengers Refurbished: 2016 Her small size and shallow draft allow close-up access to rugged coasts well beyond the reach of ordinary vessels. And she has been newly refurbished to help guests maximize their experience and build a genuine connection with the regions they visit.  Spacious decks and panoramic public rooms mean the drama of the unexpected is never far from view. A fleet of Zodiacs allows exploration from the water or remote landings anywhere nature or curiosity dictate. Since many of our expeditions sail to some of the world's most pristine coral reef systems, there's a glass-bottom boat for underwater viewing along with a full complement of snorkelling equipment and a dive programme for advanced divers.  We've also taken great care to assemble a truly outstanding Expedition Team, composed of experts in the culture, history and wild life of the destinations, to present informal talks, guide Zodiac outings and lead small-group explorations ashore. While back on board, every creature comfort awaits: an ocean-view suite, in-suite bar and the head-to-toe pampering of a butler; elegant lounges and open bar where fellow travellers gather to swap tales about their day's adventures; and cuisine that meets Silversea's standards of culinary excellence — which are lofty, indeed. Imaginative menus in The Restaurant feature both regional offerings and dishes inspired by Relais & Châteaux. Additional amenities include a sun-catching pool deck, an internet cafe, a fitness centre, and a beauty and massage centre — particularly alluring after an adventurous day ashore.
