Islands & Oceans
Australia’s spectacular coastline extends for an epic 59,736km – the same distance you’d cover if you flew from Sydney to Los Angeles five times!
Add 8000 islands and it’s no surprise that the beaches here are the best in the world. From compact Rottnest Island in the Indian Ocean to Hamilton Island in the Coral Sea, it’s fair to say that we’re spoilt for choice.
Offshore, the Great Barrier Reef and Ningaloo Reef are true wonders of the ocean – immersing yourself in these astonishing underwater realms is simply unforgettable.
REEF TO REEF
From Queensland’s Whitsundays archipelago and the Great Barrier Reef to Ningaloo Reef near Exmouth in Western Australia, this journey is the ultimate expression of Australian coastal life. Travelling ocean-to-ocean onboard the Indian Pacific, highlights include interacting with dolphins, exploring untouched islands, swimming with whale sharks, leaving footprints on Australia’s best beach and sleeping under the stars on the Great Barrier Reef.

The ultimate full-day reef adventure, you’ll start by cruising through the Whitsunday Islands until you reach our pontoon at spectacular Hardy Reef. There, you will plunge into the World Heritage listed wonder with snorkelling, diving, an underwater observatory, and guided tours.
Just 18km off the Western Australian coast, Rottnest Island has long been the go-to getaway for Perth locals.
