Overview

As the year draws to a close, be one of a special few to experience a unique, all-inclusive cruise adventure that combines the essence of the Great Barrier Reef with the spirit of the Queensland Outback.

Sail through the islands of the Queensland coast on Coral Geographer, with a private jet and sailing yacht in attendance. En route, be whisked away by private plane to Longreach for a classic Queensland outback day. After a pub lunch, gather at sunset at a 1900s homestead for storytelling and bush poetry, before returning to the ship that night. On another day, embark on a sailing yacht through the Whitsunday Islands for a barefoot luxe seafood luncheon. After an afternoon of indulgence on a white sand beach, enjoy the colours of the approaching sunset while sailing back to your comfortable stateroom on Coral Geographer. The voyage will begin and end with two gala dinners on the ship with 10 extraordinary wines selected from the prized ‘Exceptional’ category of Langton’s Classification.

As we sail through the outer islands of the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy encounters with dolphins, rays and turtles, and guided nature walks on iconic Lizard and Magnetic Islands. Dive and snorkel amongst vibrant coral reefs, and connect with indigenous culture at World Heritage listed K’gari (Fraser Island). You will be accompanied by our expert guides who will share their deep knowledge and love of this land.

We invite you to find freedom on the Queensland coast on this extraordinary voyage.

Landmark Events

  • Sailing Yacht to a Whitsundays Lunch: Embark on a chartered yacht and sail to Whitehaven Beach. Linger over Champagne and a decadent seafood lunch with your feet on white sand. As the sun sets, enjoy the sound of sails over the Whitsundays as you return to your home on Coral Geographer.
  • Two Evenings with Australia’s Finest Wines: Indulge in a comparative tasting across 10 wines curated for our two gala dinners.
