Your journey begins with a departure from amazing Adelaide. Relax and get familiar with your cabin, and savour a long lunch onboard accompanied by regional wines. Then you'll disembark in the striking Grampians - one of Australia's most stunning wilderness regions, this unique place is home to ancient sandstone mountains, dazzling waterfalls, and diverse native wildlife.
After a restful night onboard, you'll discover why Australia's capital is about more than just politics. While the jewel in Canberra's crown is undoubtedly Parliament House, the city is also home to landmarks such as the National Portrait Gallery, Australian War Memorial and the National Arboretum. A day of exploring provides you with plenty of opportunity to delve into Canberra's art, history and culinary culture.
Enjoy a very special beachside dining experience this morning. With the sounds of the waves lapping, you'll experience a lingering brunch with a backdrop of stunning sea views on the northern New South Wales coast before preparing for your arrival into Brisbane.
