About this holiday

Slide 1 of 4
PORT ARTHUR - Be fascinated and deeply moved as you explore the open-air museum and ruins of a former penal colony; it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Australia’s most significant historical areas. The Ghost Tour awaits – if you dare.

See why Australia’s island state is topping all the “hot destinations” lists on this 7 night voyage.

Hobart’s restaurant scene is booming, but there’s also wineries, the country’s oldest brewery, even a chocolate factory. You’ll be fascinated at Port Arthur’s historic island penal colony and UNESCO World Heritage site. Eden, on the Sapphire Coast, is a magnet for humpback whales and Burnie is a town of creative artisans. Phillip Island is known worldwide for its Grand Prix Circuit and some of Australia’s best surf beaches. As if that’s not enough, we’ve added in Melbourne – one of the “world’s most liveable cities”.
