Across the Top of Australia
Blue Travel is proud to offer you one of the most unique and exciting cruise itineraries: An expedition Across the Top of Australia from the Great Barrier Reef to the Outback. The outstanding international reputation of Coral Princess Cruises is testimony that this unique expedition cruise should not be missed.
An unforgettable experience that combines the best of The Top End, as it is affectionately known, The Great Barrier Reef, Cape York Peninsula, Arnhem Land and the Coburg Peninsula.
The northern reaches of the Great Barrier Reef are the most remote and pristine areas of this magnificent national park. Our journey follows Captain James Cook's voyage of discovery into the communities and cultures of the peoples of this remarkable coast. Experience the diverse cultures of the Aboriginal, Torres Strait and Tiwi Islanders who call this remote and beautiful region 'home'.
Here, nature is an all-powerful force: monsoons rejuvenate the rivers and floodplains, bringing wealth to the cattle ranchers of the savannah lands and providing the lifeblood to the inhabitants of the sleepy coastal towns. The mighty estuarine crocodile is indeed King of the Wild and the waters of the Arafura Sea are alive with marine and birdlife.
An 11 night exploration of the unique and remote Northern Australian coastline that few have experienced.
Your expedition voyage of discovery begins from either Cairns - gateway to the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, Cape York Peninsular and the fascinating islands of the Torres Strait, or Darwin - gateway to the remote and mysterious Arnhem Land and the famous National Parks of Kakadu and Cobourg Peninsula, areas affectionately known as the Top End.
Experienced and informative Expedition Leaders and Guest Lecturers will accompany you on all excursions. They will point out and interpret the myriad of wildlife you encounter and augment your experiences with on-board discussions and informal lectures. From our informative Guides you will discover the mysteries of the fascinating reef life and habitat.
There are few roads in this remote part of Northern Australia. Your access to this area is aboard one of our expedition cruise vessels Coral Princess or Oceanic Discoverer. Shallow draft and maneuverability make these ships ideal to safely navigate the often unchartered waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Torres Strait and Arafura Sea.
Both vessels offer facilities you would expect of larger ships. A choice of room grade and bedding configurations, all air-conditioned with en-suites, cocktail bars, spa pool, sundeck, resource library, lecture lounge, telephone/fax, Internet booth and more.
We offer the choice - the preference is yours.
