7 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney to Hobart aboard Le Laperouse.

Join us aboard Le Lapérouse for a wonderful new 8-day expedition cruise from Sydney to Hobart, to discover the natural and cultural treasures of the south-eastern coast of Australia and Tasmania.

After sailing out of Sydney and its beautiful harbour, you will set a course for the Jervis Bay area, in New South Wales. Renowned for its white-sand beaches bathed in turquoise water, this dynamic and creative region with a rich biodiversity is also a popular refuge for many birds.

Next on your itinerary, Eden on the New South Wales South coast will reveal its long-associated history with whales and let you explore the region’s stunning National Parks and scenic coastline.

Reaching Maria Island in Tasmania, discover the region’s history and extraordinary wildlife sanctuaries alongside your team of expedition experts.

On the Tasman Peninsula, navigate the rugged coastline and spot the various local marine life including Australian Fur Seals, little penguins and whales, as well as explore the beautiful inland woodland and forests.

Your voyage will end in Hobart, Australia’s second oldest capital, your port of disembarkation.

Highlights of this cruise:

Sydney
Nestled around one of the world’s most beautiful harbours, Sydney is both trendy and classic, urbane yet laid-back. Composed of ocean and light, of sailors and businessmen, this city alone inspires many travellers to visit the “Land Down Under”. Located between the Pacific Ocean and the elegant silhouettes of the Blue Mountains, it encapsulates the Australian way of life: surfing beaches, quiet suburbs, skyscrapers, Victorian cottages and tropical gardens. Sydney is filled with history and harmoniously blends old world charm and ultra-modern architecture, with its sail-shaped Opera House which sits alongside the historic district of The Rocks as the Harbour Bridge stretches across the bay.

Eden
Eden is situated on the NSW South Coast nestled amongst beautiful national parks and rugged coastline. Set in the magnificent Twofold Bay–the third deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere, Eden has a long-associated history with whales. Recorded in the fascinating displays at the Eden Killer Whale Museum are the tales of the wild killer whales who hunted with the Yuin people, and later with European settlers. From Pambula Beach in the north to historic Green Cape lighthouse in the south, Ben Boyd National Park features rugged coastlines, vivid rock formations, pristine beaches, extensive areas of coastal heath and intriguing history. You will have the opportunity to take a coach tour showcasing the regions history and scenery.

Maria Island
Located off Tasmania’s east coast, Maria Island is a natural wildlife sanctuary and off-shore retreat with historic ruins, sweeping bays, dramatic cliffs and plenty of stories to tell. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Tyreddeme people, it has also been a whaling and sealing post, penal settlement and an Italian pleasure resort, and is also one of Tasmania’s great bird watching hot spots, home to the the endangered forty-spotted pardalote and the rare and unique Cape Barren goose. Grasslands, open forest and tall wood land also provide a home for abundant wildlife including wombats, pademelons, Forester Kangaroos and Bennetts wallabies. Join members of your expedition team for a guided walk on one of several trails on offer. If time and weather permit we will explore the shoreline with our fleet of Zodiac®.

Hobart
Hobart occupies a wonderful location at the mouth of the Derwent River, overseen by majestic Mt Wellington and surrounded by natural bushland. The Tasmanian capital is Australia’s second-oldest city, after Sydney, and the picturesque waterfront is bordered by 19th-century warehouses and colonial mansions. Salamanca Place is packed with shops, galleries and restaurants and the fascinating Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is a short ferry ride from the quay. Hobart is within easy reach of some of Tasmania’s best-known destinations, from historic Port Arthur and the rugged Tasman Peninsula to Bruny Island, the Huon and Derwent Valleys and Mount Field National Park.

Featuring innovative and environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed cabins, spacious suites with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside, this new limited-capacity yacht boasting just 92 cabins and suites will offer you a truly unique cruising experience.

As the first ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Lapérouse will embody the unique atmosphere that is the cruise line’s hallmark: a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort.

Aboard this ship that flies the French flag, you will experience the incomparable pleasure of an intimate cruise, with the possibility of exploring an ever-increasing range of destinations in an ethnic-chic ambiance with 5-star service.

Experience a luxurious setting where the accent is on authenticity and passion for travel.
