Tasmania

Small ship cruising along Tasmania's wild coastline is the best way to appreciate the splendour of the scenery and the wildlife of the island state. Visit places redolent of history, including Tasmania's evocative convict past, and explore small islands off the beaten track. Get into true wilderness by day, and enjoy true comfort by night. Your ship takes you to World Heritage-listed destinations, and to places few have visited. See the stunning sea cliffs of Tasman National Park from the sea en route to Port Arthur. Explore Schouten Island, Maria Island and Bruny Island, and see the splendour of Freycinet Nastional Park and Wineglass Bay from a different perspective. Spend two days discovering the Tasman Wilderness World Heritage area. If you're feeling energetic, perhaps kayak in Bramble Cove, or hike along the Balmoral Hill Track. Keep an eye out for the rare Orange Bellied Parrot and other birdlife.
