In Sydney, where you’ll begin this incredible holiday, you’ll find one of the world’s great international cities, blessed with a superb harbour that’s home to an iconic bridge and world-renowned opera house. Take in Sydney’s myriad attractions, from Bondi Beach to the Royal Botanic Garden – one of the world’s finest – and roam the historic Rocks district.

Embarking Silver Shadow, you’ll then sail to Hobart in true nautical luxury, immersing yourself in a host of world-class amenities and superior service. With an overnight in port in the Tasmanian capital you’ll get to see many of its finest attractions, from the delightful products on offer at Salamanca Place to the viewpoint at the summit of nearby Mount Wellington. From Hobart you’ll then sail along the coast to nearby Port Arthur, where a once-notorious convict settlement is now an open-air museum. At Phillip Island, you’ll love the Penguin Parade, where groups of penguins come ashore at sunset, while at Geelong you could turn back time by visiting Eastern Beach, a 1930s Art Deco gem.

Reaching Melbourne, delve into the elegant Victorian arcades that give this city a distinctly European feel, and admire the public art that adds to its charm. The pace of life is notably slower in Eden, your next destination. This town is a hot-spot for watching whales and dolphins, and is dotted with beaches where you can take a stroll to the sound of the South Pacific Ocean waves lapping at the shore.

After Mooloolaba, with its lively esplanade, you’ll discover the river-side city Brisbane. Get a taste of the indigenous way of life during the Aboriginal Cultural Experience and visit the popular Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. From Airlie Beach you’ll sail to Cairns where you’ll disembark. During an overnight hotel stay head out into the waters of the Great Barrier Reef and spot abundant marine life, from manta rays to turtles.

Finally, you’ll end your holiday by flying to the heart of the wonderful Whitsunday Islands of Australia’s north-east coast. Hamilton Island, where you’ll stay for three nights, is the largest inhabited island of the Whitsundays and is a perennially popular spot for those looking for somewhere that combines marine beauty, laid-back beaches and a wealth of fun activities – from walking trails to off-road adventures. It’s a fabulous destination that ticks all the boxes.

Australia’s largest and most cosmopolitan city might be best known for the iconic landmarks around its dazzling harbour, but it also offers a feast of cultural treats, from first-class museums and galleries to boutique cinemas. With an overnight stay, you could roam the huge Royal Botanic Garden or watch surfers crest the waves at Bondi Beach. Or why not delve into the acclaimed food scene and independent breweries in The Rocks district?

DAY 4 | 6 Apr 2022
Hobart

Hobart, founded at the turn of the 19th century as a British penal colony, is known for its well-preserved colonial architecture, much of which was built during the Georgian and Victorian eras, giving the city a charmingly old-world demeanour. While here you’ll be able to choose from a wealth of exciting activities such as a city highlights tour, a hike to nearby Mount Wellington, an oysters and wine tour or a nocturnal visit to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

DAY 5 | 7 Apr 2022
Hobart

Hobart is a great place from which to explore the rugged beauty of southern Tasmania. Why not head for Russell Falls, a tiered-cascade waterfall in the Central Highlands region, which is one of the most picturesque in the country. Or get an aerial view of the area surrounding the city with a 30-minute plane trip, taking in the majestic Derwent river. To see many of the island’s flora in one place, wander the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

DAY 6 | 8 Apr 2022
Port Arthur

Just south of Hobart on the tip of a peninsula jutting out into the Tasman Sea lies the town of Port Arthur. This former convict settlement was notorious within the British penal system due to its harsh conditions. These days it’s an open-air museum where you can learn how British convicts deported to Australia in the 18th century served their sentences. You’ll also take a Tassie Wilderness Cruise excursion to see the local marine wildlife.

DAY 7 | 9 Apr 2022
Phillip Island

Phillip Island’s claim to fame is that it was once the home of the Australian Grand Prix until it was shifted to nearby Melbourne. The track remains, however, and now hosts other motor sport events. The Penguin Parade at Phillip Island Nature Park, in which penguins come ashore in groups at sunset, is one of the most popular attractions here. It’s also a prime whale-watching spot, with dolphins and hump-back whales to be found in the local waters.

DAY 8 | 10 Apr 2022
Geelong

Flourishing Geelong is the second-largest city in Victoria and lies on the shores of Corio Bay. It’s undergone a huge facelift in recent years and the results can be seen in the vibrant waterfront precinct and the Art Deco Eastern Beach. Geelong is also the gateway to the Great Ocean Road, a scenic coastline route built by soldiers returning from World War One and dedicated to their fallen comrades.

DAY 9 | 11 Apr 2022
Melbourne

Melbourne is Australia’s second most populous city and its cultural capital, hosting a plethora of museums, art galleries, music festivals and world heritage sites. Flowing through its distinctive mix of art deco high-rises, mirrored skyscrapers and Victorian-era arcades is the Yarra River, while the nearby Yarra Valley is home to a plethora of vineyards. Discover Street art on foot, see the shoreline Twelve Apostles by helicopter, or roam the city on an electric bike.

DAY 11 | 13 Apr 2022
Eden

The town of Eden has long been associated with the abundant whale and dolphin species found off its rugged coastline. Once a whaling station, it’s now known as a passing point for migrating whales, especially humpbacks. If you don’t want to venture out to sea you might catch a sight of the area’s marine wildlife from the shore. Eden is full of superb beaches, from the family-friendly Cocora Beach to the Aslings Beach Boardwalk – ideal for a gentle stroll in the sea breeze.

DAY 13 | 15 Apr 2022
Mooloolaba

Lying north of Brisbane along the coast is the suburb of Mooloolaba, home to a fleet of fishing vessels and popular with recreational sailors due to its harbour, which is protected from the Coral Sea by Point Cartwright. The esplanade is a lively area and offers quirky shops, diverse restaurants and an excellent aquarium where you can handle some of the inhabitants. Mooloolaba Beach features regularly in top-ten lists and the calm sea is perfect for swimming in.

DAY 14 | 16 Apr 2022
Brisbane

Australia’s third most populous city, Brisbane is known as the Sunshine State.  Here you’ll find sculptures, murals and mosaics peeking out from the streets, while unusual buildings like the Queensland Performing Arts Centre enhance the atmosphere of creative vibrancy. Enjoy a waterside lunch alongside Brisbane River and ride the giant Ferris wheel, or visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where, besides these cute marsupials, you can see kangaroos, platypuses and more.

DAY 16 | 18 Apr 2022
Airlie Beach

This relaxed town of palm-fringed beaches is the gateway to the sublimely beautiful Whitsunday Islands, while the Great Barrier Reef is also nearby. It has a small selection of boutiques, cafes and markets but its main attraction is the selection of adventure trips you can take. Sailing the islands, taking a scenic flight over the reefs or going on a snorkel safari are among your many excursion options here. Bask in the tropical atmosphere and find an ocean-front restaurant for the amazing views.

Cairns - Disembark Silver Shadow and Hotel Stay

Today you’ll disembark Silver Shadow in Cairns. With a second day here, you could try seeing the aquatic life from another perspective – perhaps by snorkelling or scuba diving. Or you could take the scenic cable car to nearby Kuranda, gliding above the rainforest while enjoying breath-taking panoramic views across North Queensland. The village itself is a wonderful place to spend a few hours, with handicraft and souvenir shops selling a cornucopia of quirky good, from Aboriginal artefacts to one-off jewellery.

Hamilton Island - Hotel Stay

The waters and ivory-white beaches of the Whitsundays are rich in life and are perfect for exploring. Snorkel around the colourful reefs, play volleyball on the podery sand or speed through the surf on a jet-ski. For a gentler experience climb into a kayak and paddle around the shores, keeping an eye out for shoals of fish passing beneath you.
