The great unknown land, Terra Australis Incognita, was for centuries imagined but uncharted, before explorers sailed to the edge of the world to find it. They discovered a land which was not unknown to the many indigenous tribes who lived throughout the vast island continent, and from that moment created a new history with both magnificent and terrible deeds.

2020 is the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s landing, the 200th anniversary of Philip Parker King’s explorations, and the 35th anniversary of Coral Expeditions. Celebrating 35 years of pioneering expeditions, we take a voyage to circumnavigate this great land, to see the coast the way that mariners throughout history have seen it, and to explore thirty-five key historical sites that shaped Australia.

Welcome to the Coral Expeditions 35th Anniversary Expedition.

Sailing aboard the Coral Adventurer, our voyage will commence from Darwin on the 7th of November 2020 and undertake a full circumnavigation of the Australian Coastline over 60 days (59 nights) returning on 5th January 2021. This is a once in a lifetime and never to be repeated expedition of discovery and we would love for you to join us. With only 60 staterooms available for this voyage, this is an intimate and personal journey of discovery. Senior Master Gary Wilson, has designed a voyage that will be a celebration of history, culture, nature and Australian Maritime history.

With our unique Xplorer tenders, explore hard-to-reach locations of historic significance or natural beauty. Visit famous places and share stories of historic maritime events that shaped our nation from ancient times to early explorers and more modern wartime. Be immersed in the arts and cultures of the people and communities of Australia on your travels. Whether it be coastal walks, snorkelling the reef, sharing amazing wildlife encounters or just taking in the scenery, you will enjoy a unique perspective of the greatest coastline in the world.

Our experienced Expedition Team, along with guest lecturers and special guests, accompany and guide our voyage. Their commentary and skill at story telling will immerse you in the culture, history and nature of the Australian coastline.

THE CORAL ADVENTURER


Our brand-new vessel, the Coral Adventurer, will be your home for this extraordinary voyage. With accommodation for only 120 guests in 60 staterooms, her relaxed and intimate onboard atmosphere is a trademark of Coral Expeditions. Share the experience of navigation with the Captain with a visit to our open bridge or share stories
with new friends at the statement wine-tasting table in the Dining Room. Spacious bar and lounge areas provide relaxation and time to connect, and all Explorer Deck and Bridge Deck staterooms and suites offer private balconies. Coral Adventurer is purpose-built for comfortable ocean voyages and for exploring remote areas inaccessible to larger cruise ships. She is outfitted with dual Xplorer tenders and eight zodiacs, and our unique hydraulic platform enables easy walk-on boarding for shore excursions. She is Australian flagged and crewed, so you can expect the highest standard of service, environmental responsibility, and the intimate and personal experience of smallship cruising.
