    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Thursday, February 24, 2022 Melbourne, Australia Embark 5:00 PM
    View of Melbourne, Australia

    For those with a little more time to spend in Melbourne, there are many easy day trips to enjoy beyond the city limits by guided tour or with a hire car. Not even an hour from Melbourne, you’ll find Australia’s best-preserved steam train Puffing Billy - the historic railway puffs through the leafy Dandenong Ranges. The Mornington Peninsula offers first-rate wineries, local cuisine, and both bay and ocean beaches. To get up close with native fauna, a trip to Healesville Sanctuary will give you a fix - the beautiful, bushland-set sanctuary gives you the chance to cosy up with koalas, kangaroos and wombats as well as lesser-known Australian animals.

    Port Lincoln is a city of 16,000 situated on Boston Bay which opens into Spencer Gulf, at the southern extremity of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. It lies 270 km due west of the State capital Adelaide. The waters are fished for southern bluefin tuna and sardines, and are home to Australia’s largest commercial fishing fleet. Aquaculture is a thriving industry, and large quantities raised in tuna ranches supply the Japanese market. Read more about Port Lincoln, Australia

    Cruise ships anchor off the town of Penneshaw and tender to the jetty. Kangaroo Island, named by Matthew Flinders in 1802, is Australia's third largest island. Situated 112 km SW of Adelaide, it is a pristine untamed wilderness where the koalas aren't being cuddled, they're relaxing at home in native trees. The seals aren't performing, they're lazing beside you on the beach. Read more about Kangaroo Island, Australia
