    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Monday, January 3, 2022 Melbourne, Australia Embark 5:00 PM

    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. learn more

    2 Tuesday, January 4, 2022 At Sea
    3 Wednesday, January 5, 2022 Adelaide, Australia 7:00 AM 9:00 PM

    The Port Adelaide Passenger Terminal is 22 km from Adelaide city centre. Access is via a vehicle drop-off zone, or a 200 m walk to Outer Harbour railway station. Park cars nearby, but note there is no long-term parking. Adelaide is an architecturally-planned city, set beside the River Torrens between the Adelaide Hills and Gulf St Vincent. learn more

    4 Thursday, January 6, 2022 Port Lincoln, Australia 8:00 AM 6:00 PM

    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. learn more

    5 Friday, January 7, 2022 Kangaroo Island, Australia 8:00 AM 6:00 PM

    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. learn more

    6 Saturday, January 8, 2022 At Sea
    7 Sunday, January 9, 2022 Phillip Island, Australia 7:00 AM 6:00 PM

    Phillip Island is approximately 140 km SE of Melbourne, joined to the mainland by bridge, and is the home of the world famous Penguin Parade that can be viewed each evening at dusk when the fairy penguins stroll up the beach to their burrows. There's a great range of activities to enjoy that include surfing, snorkelling, and swimming in summer, kayaking, jet skiing, aqua biking and yachting. Add to this: bush walking on the many tracks and enjoying the many parks; bird watching; pelican feeding; and don’t miss out of visiting some of the wineries. But Phillip Island is synonymous with the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix held annually in October. learn more
