Set sail with PONANT for a 13-day all-new expedition cruise from Melbourne to Fremantle, discovering the grandiose and wild nature and unique terroirs of the north of Tasmania and the southern coast of Australia.
You’ll embark in Melbourne, Australia’s second largest city and its cultural capital, before setting sail for Tasmania.
In Bass Strait, you’ll reach the magnificent wild coasts of Flinders Island and King Island: white sandy beaches, green pastures, granite rocks in shades of ochre.
Your port of call at Beauty Point will be the occasion to discover the natural riches of the Tamar Valley, edged with fertile hills and wine estates.
Kangaroo Island, off the coast of Adelaide, will be one of the high points of your cruise. Here, you will admire a wonderful wild nature: expanses of dunes, eucalyptus forests, moors overlooking vertiginous cliffs and beaches of immaculate white sand.
You will then admire the vastness of the landscapes on the south coast of Australia, whose turquoise waters are home to many fishes and shellfishes, essential products in the rich local gastronomy. It is also the opportunity to dive into the rich past of this region explored by Europeans back at the beginning of the 17th century, before disembarking in Fremantle, a bohemian little town with rich architectural heritage.
