Cruising adventures are popular for those who want to travel in luxury and style. Embark on a fascinating and stimulating journey of discovery and adventure and steer away from boring cruise itinerary by exploring Australia’s unspoilt wilderness.
Open the mind to new experiences and excite the senses by discovering these new places and incredible landscapes not everybody has the privilege of witnessing. These are in every explorer’s bucket list; tick them off one secret spot at a time.
1. Whites Beach, Byron Bay, NSW
Whites is located near Byron, one of Australia’s most popular destinations, but is surprisingly still a secret to many tourists. It’s still a little ways down the bay, but the wandering before one reaches the shore will be worth it – crystal water, countless rock pools, and regular dolphin sightings. Explorers can enjoy the breathtaking beauty, even more enjoying the quiet and privacy.
2. The Torres Strait Islands, QLD
Heading north to Queensland, take your cruising adventure to the beautiful 120 km stretch of small islands called The Torres Strait Islands. The paradise is composed of 274 islands, only 14 of which are inhabited. Explorers can enjoy the company of the islanders, the indigenous people of the archipelago, while learning about their culture.
3. Kimberley, WA
Continue your journey on to the great Kimberley, where many corners and depths remain unnoticed. Greatescape.net.au boasts the landscape of Kimberly as one of the world’s last great wilderness adventures. Explore river systems, waterfalls, and rock pools through a luxurious cruising vessel, and then step off and get on your feet for mud crabbing, harvesting oysters, and other sea excursions and shore activities.
4. Lake Eyre, SA
At 15 metres below sea level, the salt lake is the lowest point in Australia. The Lake Eyre Basin covers a sixth of the continent. On those very rare occasions when it fills, it becomes the largest lake in the country and turns a majestic pink colour when it increases in salinity and algae. Explorers seeking thrill can ride a chopper over the lake to appreciate the view more.
Wind down the amazing cruising adventure with a night of cocktails where everybody talks about all the places they saw and experiences. A once-in-a-lifetime experience like this may end, but the memories leave a huge imprint in every explorer’s wandering minds.
