Become immersed in the ancient Indigenous cultures and prehistoric landscapes of Australia’s northern coastline on a voyage of discovery that takes you far off the beaten track in Arnhem Land, to the very tip of Australia at Cape York, and into the Torres Strait. On this expedition of the remote Northern Australian coastline, experience traditions unchanged for centuries, sacred rock art and remote lands only permitted accessible by a fortunate few.
On this journey, become immersed in the rich cultures of the Tiwi and the Torres Strait where guests are warmly welcomed to Country. Journey into traditional lands from Cape York to Yolngu territory in Arnhem Land. Learn and understand the song-lines and lore that shaped this ancient culture, and allow your expert guides to interpret ancient rock art. See how generations have passed on artistic traditions, and how this important cultural legacy is being kept alive today at world-renowned art centres in Yirrkala and Nhulunbuy. Watch Elders tell their story through art in Maningrida.
Guests onboard will also spend a full day cruising the Coburg Peninsula, taking in her plentiful avian and sea life. See the confronting graffiti at Gulgari Rip, also known as “the Hole in the Wall” – a tiny inlet that explorers have snuck through for hundreds of year. This journey follows in the wake of Captain James Cook’s voyage of discovery into the communities and cultures of the people of this remarkable coast 250 years ago.
