Day 1 – Benoa, Indonesia Departure 19:00

Bali is a spectacular island, rich in culture and verdant mountains with terraced rice fields in one direction, black sand beaches in another and captivating people that will leave even the most seasoned traveller humbled.

The country’s estimated 10,000 Buddhist-Hindu temples, with their daily offerings of lotus flowers and fruit are testament to the gentleness of the islander’s belief. There is a vibrant arts and crafts scene, that is notably in Ubud in the centre of the island, but prolific everywhere. Ideal souvenirs to bring back a range from gorgeous silver jewellery to intricate wood carvings. Additionally, do try to see a traditional dance if possible, particularly if accompanied to local gamelan music.

No could mention Bali without mentioning the exceptional quality of food, with dishes ranging from elaborate meals to street food bites. Do not miss out on tasting a succulent chicken satay, betutu (apparently the King’s favourite meal) and sambal matah. Whatever you decide to discover, you can be assured of a taste sensation that will remain with you long after you have returned home.

Day 2 – Komodo Island, Indonesia 12.30- 18:30

Komodo, the volcanic island of giant lizards, lies 320 miles (515 kilometres) east of Bali. Komodo is 25 miles (40 kilometres) long and 12 miles (19 kilometres) wide; its parched hills ascend to a height of 2,410 feet (734 metres). Komodo Island is home to a community of 2000 people who make their living primarily from fishing. The island is the centrepiece of the Komodo National Park, where you will find the most tangible legacy left behind from the Jurassic Era.

Komodo Island was little-known and the Komodo dragons were only a myth until the giant lizards were scientifically described in 1912 . Extinct almost everywhere else, the island attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world who come to see the Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. Komodo National Park has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve.

1 Included Shore Excursion
Komodo Dragon’s Lair

Day 3 – Makassar, Indonesia 12:30 to 18:30

Makassar, formally called Ujung Pandang swarms with vestiges of its Dutch colonial past. The port was part of the Dutch East India Company from 1699 the early 1800s, and then as a part of the Netherlands Indies (or Dutch East Indies) until its liberation after WWII. There are street signs that follow the traditional European alphabet, so any visitor not versed in the city’s official language of Makassarese needn’t worry about getting lost!

Fort Rotterdam on the western coast of the city is perhaps Makassar’s most iconic landmark. Trades between Holland and Indonesia was struck and the fort has played a large role in Makassar’s development. Originally named Benteng or Fort Jumpandang, the fort was built in 1545, but has been expanded many times over its long history. Because of the fort’s enormity, it became Indonesia’s centre for stockpiling spices prior to their dispatch to Europe.

You cannot miss this building – with one stroll down, the boulevard will take you right to its gates. If you feel the call of the wild while in Makassar, fear not, as the Bantimurung Bulusaraung National Park is just 50 kilometres away. The limestone hills, steep karts walls, tropical heat and an immense 15 x 20 waterfall; the park is said to “lift the spirits of all who see it” and is also the breeding ground for butterflies. Next to the waterfall is Goa Mimpi or The Dream Cave, which has millennia old cave art.

Day 4 to 6 – Days at Sea

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is going to the gym, visiting the spa, whale watching, catching up on your reading or simply topping up your tan, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Day 7 – Jayapura, Indonesia 13:00 – 18:30


The largest Indonesian city in New Guinea, Jayapura is the provincial capital of Papua, Indonesia. Locally known as Port Numbay, Jayapura had a population of over 315,000 people. Providing both a location to clear in and out of Indonesia, and an opportunity to experience traditional dances and customs of Papua, the city is close to Lake Sentani.

This region is famed for it’s distinctive art, traditional motifs, sago bowls and bark paintings produced by the people who live around and on the lake. A visit to Jayapura often combines a stop at the lake for rides on local longboats to reach one of the islands. Here you can watch a local dance presentation, walk around the island, climb up to the church for views of the lake, and see the local artefacts.

Day 8 – Wewak, Papua New Guinea

The Sepik region of Papua New Guinea is a wonderland of islands, beautiful coastlines, river systems and mountain ranges. It is the site of Japanese surrender in September 1945, and a history rich in human endeavours. First colonised by Germans in 1885, the area soon attracted mercenaries, explorers, traders, labour recruiters, and missionaries. It is the timeless history of the Sepik people themselves which provide the mystery and exotic folklore of this fascinating area.

Wewak is an attractive palm-fringed town which felt the might of Japanese troops who “discovered” its isolation and hidden ports around Kairiru Island. Many war memorials remain around the outskirts of the plantations and a Japanese gun still points from the eastern end of the island. Wewak is the capital of East Sepik province and located not far from Cape Wom. Cape Wom was the site of the Japanese surrender to allied-forces, where Lieutenant General Adachi signed the documents and handed his sword to Major General Robertson on 13th September 1945. A war memorial marks the site and the wartime airstrip is still in place. Another memorial in town has been erected at the site of the Japanese war graves and nearby is the Japanese/Papua New Guinea Peace Park.

Day 9 – Madang, Papua New Guinea 8:00 – 19:00

The very first houses of Madang were located on a small peninsula jutting into the Bismarck Sea –the land between today’s port and the Forum Park. The site had been chosen for its deep harbour and the fresh sea breeze.

Madang is located 40 kilometres south of Cape Croisilles, the northern point of Astrolabe Bay and was originally called “Friedrich Wilhelms-Hafen” after the Prussian Crown Prince. The station had been built in 1891 to be the provincial headquarters of German New Guinea from 1892 onwards. After WWI and the eviction of the Germans, the town’s name was changed to Madang. Madang was occupied by the Japanese during WWII and to honor the Coastwatchers working behind enemy lines, the Coastwatchers Memorial Lighthouse was inaugurated at the entrance to Madang Harbor at Kalibobo in 1959. Not only is this a shining light for shipping, it has also become an iconic feature of Madang.

Today the town has a population of 36,000 inhabitants and is connected by road to Hansa Bay in the north and Lae and the highlands to the south. Cattle, cocoa and copra are important produces from Madang Province. With more than 170 languages spoken in the province, the small museum holds interesting pieces relating to the history and cultures of Madang and surrounding areas. Several of the trees along Modilon Road show hundreds of resting fruit bats waiting for the evening’s flights, some of them find their way to the Main Market.

Day 10 – Day at Sea

 Enjoy another day at sea, the perfect time to relax and unwind. Use the gym to keep you fit afloat, treat yourself at the spa and fulfil your massage therapy needs, catch up on some reading by the poolside or simply top up your tan.

Day 11 – Alotau, Papua New Guinea

Alotau, the provincial capital of the Milne Bay Province; is located in the southeast bay of Papua New Guinea. The town and surrounding area has been an important staging ground during World War II. Alotau is an important port facility for the islands and attracts many vendors of handicrafts from different islands.

With a visit to Alotau, you’ll discover the remains and memorials dating back to the war. During a tour of the town, visitors will appreciate lovely vistas of the bay and experience the markets, which are frequented not only by locals, but also by islanders selling their products or looking for produce to take back into Milne Bay.

Day 13 – Cairns, Australia 7:00 – 18:00

Receive a warm welcome to the natural wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns, a treasure trove of rich tropical beauty and incredible sea life; offers Swathes of rainforest spread out to the north. You can soar over the canopy in a cable car, before looking down over narrow channels of water plummeting down gorges and crocodile-filled waterways.

The diverse lands of the Atherton Tableland lie to the west, but it’s the crystal-clear waters and life-filled reefs of Cairns’ remarkable underwater world that makes it really beautiful to admire from a high altitude. Priding itself as the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, explore Cairns’ constellation of colour, as you dive into the world’s largest and most spectacular underwater universe. Kuranda – with its scenic railway and heritage market stalls – waits to be discovered, cloaked within the depths of the rainforest.

Day 14 – Townsville 8:00 – 18:00

Basking in 320 sunny days a year, Townsville is a welcoming, sun-soaked slice of tropical Australia. Venture to this remote city on the cusp of the tropics, to meet adorable animals, explore gorgeous coastal islands and soak up the reliable sun’s bronzing glow. Rise to the rosy rock of Castle Hill – the views down over the sparkling coastal setting, and islands waiting beyond form an amazing welcome.

Located on Queensland’s north-east coast, the city’s bay arcs around Magnetic Island – which lies just a scenic 20-minute ferry ride away. An island sanctuary of beautiful dive sites – set amid vibrant reefs and secluded beach coves – it is one of Townsville’s most exquisite natural assets. The island’s national park is adorned with wildlife, and you can meet more of Australia’s famous residents at the family-owned Billabong Sanctuary – which cares for kangaroos, crocodiles, wallabies and more.

Townsville’s vast aquarium brings the magic of the region’s glittering reefs to land, and the largest reef aquarium in the world ensures that even non-divers can enjoy an authentic insight into the colourful life that blossoms offshore.

With the finest powder sand, knots of deep green rainforest and ankle-deep shelves of turquoise sea water – Airlie Beach is your gateway to some of the world’s most spectacular beaches. This lively town welcomes wide-eyed young adventurers and the yachting crowd alike to the Whitsunday Islands’ serenity, and the hiss of espresso machines, and excited chatter of adventure, spills out from its many cafes and bars.

Relax at Airlie Beach Lagoon – the social hub of this town – where sun-heated saltwater invites you to wade, before flaming fresh coral trout over a barbecue as the sun sets. Or, take a seat at one of the glorious restaurants offering uninterrupted views out over the waters of Pioneer Bay, towards the 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays. These heavenly waters don’t just attract humans. Humpback and pilot whales also migrate here to indulge in the warm waters and sheltered location.

Day 17 – Brisbane, Australia 8:00 – 18:00

They don’t call it the Sunshine State for nothing, and Brisbane’s modern metropolis fully exploits its sun-blessed location, basking in Queensland’s generous year-round glow. The envied climate makes Brisbane a city of outdoor adventure, activity and relaxation, where days drift by surfing rollers, or relaxing in the shade of swaying palms.

While Brisbane may play second fiddle to Sydney and Melbourne at times, it radiates a creative and contemporary energy, offering visitors a refreshing combination of laidback waterfront luxury and urban sophistication. Sandy islands nearby provide scenic diving and oceanside relaxation opportunities, while the city’s animal santuaries offer opportunities to meet unbearably cute koalas and kangaroos.

Brisbane’s impressive skyline of metallic cylinders rises high above the broad Brisbane River below, which curves lazily through downtown. The rolling waves of the Pacific are close by, but there’s something special about relaxing on soft sand in the very heart of the city, on the beautifully executed South Bank Parklands man-made beach. With golden sand and shallow lagoon waters to cool off in, it’s a dreamy spot to lie back with a book, amid the landscaped gardens.

Nestled in a river meander of its own, Brisbane Botanic Park glows with colour, tropical plants and wading ibis birds, and is easily walkable from the Parklands. The South Bank is the cultural hub of city, and houses the celebrated Queensland Gallery of Modern Art – a surreal and vibrant jaunt through contemporary Australian art. The city’s award-winning restaurants also serve up elite food, matched with generous splashes of wine, direct from the nearby Granite Belt’s wine regions.

With its glorious harbour, lavish golden beaches and iconic landmarks, Sydney is Australia’s showpiece city. Creative and curious, discover the world-class cuisine, indigenous culture, and irresistible beach life that make Sydney one of the world’s most dynamic, exciting destinations.

Sydney’s sparkling harbour is the heart of a richly cultural city. Overlooked by the metallic curves of the masterpiece of an Opera House, and that grand arched harbour bridge. Take it all in from the water, and admire the iconic landmarks, which are set before the city’s gleaming skyline backdrop. If you’re feeling adventurous, take the legendary climb up the smooth curve of the bridge – nicknamed the Coathanger – to soak in the shining city’s spread from a unique perspective. Spread out to tan on one of the world’s most famous stretches of sand – Bondi Beach. Restaurants and bars burble away in the background, while the sun beams down, and surfers curl and leap over pure rollers. Swim in spectacular salty ocean pools, or wander the beautiful Bondi to Coogee coastal walk for more of this sun-gorged stretch of prime coastline.

Leaving the thrills of Australia’s largest city behind is surprisingly simple – take to the skies to be flown above skyscrapers and rippling ribbons of waves, out to majestic peaks, sheer cliffs and iconic rock formations – like the Three Sisters of the Blue Mountains. Or, drop in on wildlife sanctuaries caring for the country’s animals – from hopping kangaroos to adorably cute, cuddly koalas.
