Clinging to the walls of the natural amphitheater at the west end of Otago Harbour, the South Island's second-largest city is enriched with inspiring nearby seascapes and wildlife. Because Dunedin is a university town, floods of students give the city a vitality far greater than its population of 122,000 might suggest.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Straddling the Derwent River at the foot of Mt. Wellington's forested slopes, Hobart was founded as a penal settlement in 1803. It's the second-oldest city in the country after Sydney, and it certainly rivals its mainland counterpart as Australia's most beautiful state capital. Close-set colonial brick-and-sandstone shops and homes line the narrow, quiet streets, creating a genteel setting for this historic city of 215,000. Life revolves around the broad Derwent River port, one of the deepest harbors in the world.

Located off the eastern coast of Tasmania, Maria Island is both a natural wildlife sanctuary and an important historical site with the best preserved convict probation station at Darlington, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the 1960s the island was chosen to be a haven for plants and animals and a number of threatened species have been introduced, including Forester kangaroos, Bennett’s wallabies and Tasmanian devils. Eleven Tasmania endemics, including one of Australia’s smallest birds, the threatened Forty-spotted Pardalote, can often be seen in the park.
Flinders Island is one of 52 islands in the Bass Strait’s Furneaux Group, north-east of Tasmania. With a pleasant climate throughout the year Flinders Island has sparkling beaches, rugged ranges, abundant wildlife, flora and clear waters. The Strzelecki National Park, which covers roughly 7,414 hectares, has a trail going to the top of the highest peak from where one has amazing views of the Bass Strait and its islands. Some 200 bird species have been recorded, including thousands of Short-tailed Shearwater and the Tasmania endemics Tasmanian Thornbill and Forty-spotted Pardalote.
Your first sight of Phillip Island's prize asset - its parade of adorable penguins skipping across the sand - will be just one of many unforgettable experiences from your time on this stunning island. Located just to the south of cultured Melbourne, the southern ocean’s rollers have hewn a rugged, dramatic shoreline here, and you’ll be itching to explore as soon as you lay eyes upon it.
Consistently rated among the "world's most livable cities" in quality-of-life surveys, Melbourne is built on a coastal plain at the top of the giant horseshoe of Port Phillip Bay. The city center is an orderly grid of streets where the state parliament, banks, multinational corporations, and splendid Victorian buildings that sprang up in the wake of the gold rush now stand. This is Melbourne's heart, which you can explore at a leisurely pace in a couple of days.

Temps forts du Voyage

Join us for an exciting journey from the Sub-Antarctic Islands of New Zealand and Australia to Tasmania and beyond. By combining the Sub-antarctic Islands with Tasmania and Phillip Island, there is the chance to see various different species of penguins, albatrosses and mollymawks and even be present when the Little Penguins come back ashore on Phillip Island in the evening. Apart from endemic birds the plant life on these islands is quite fascinating and it will become obvious why most of these islands have UNESCO World Heritage status. When in Tasmania, the convict history will also be present.
Throughout the voyage, learn about the geology, wildlife and history of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

Ulva Island, New Zealand
Ulva Island is a world renowned open bird sanctuary looked after by the Department of Conservation. Small groups of not more than 12 guests will be led by professional local guides to ensure a maximum experience of natural history. As Ulva has no invasive species, the walk through the natural forest will be a wonderful opportunity to see the endemic plants and birdlife.

The Snares, New Zealand
The Snares is a small island group approximately 200 kilometers south of New Zealand's South Island and covers a total of approximately 3.5 square kilometers. Unlike other Sub-Antarctic islands that were greatly affected by the whaling and sealing industry in the nineteenth century, The Snares remains one of the last near pristine areas in New Zealand. Depending on sea and weather conditions we intend to use the fleet of Zodiacs on board the Silver Explorer to go in search of the endemic Snares Crested Penguin, listening for Tuis and bellbirds and looking for New Zealand fur seals.

Enderby Island and Auckland Island, New Zealand
Enderby Island and Auckland Island are composed of eroding volcanic remains. Under New Zealand’s ecological management, which included the removal of all introduced mammals, the rata forests are regenerating and herbaceous plants are resurging. Enderby Island is home to the rare Yellow-eyed Penguin, New Zealand Bellbirds and Red-crowned Parakeets, as well as Southern Royal Albatross that nest on the plateau. Auckland Island has an abundance and diversity of seabirds, including Gibson’s Albatross and White-capped Mollymawks. It is also the primary breeding ground for the most rare and endangered sea lions in the world, the New Zealand (Hooker) sea lion, and the breeding ground for 30% of the world’s population of the Yellow-eyed Penguin.

Campbell Island, New Zealand
We will use our Zodiacs to land on Campbell Island, New Zealand’s southernmost sovereign territory some 700 kilometers southeast of South Island. High and rugged in the south (up to 1,867 feet), it slopes off more gently to the north where smoothed ridges and open valleys suggest considerable recent glaciation. Farmed since 1894, Campbell Island was used for sealing and whaling, wartime coastal defense, and meteorological observation. Becoming a nature reserve in 1954, it is now an uninhabited and World Heritage site administered by the Department of Conservation.

Macquarie Island, Australia
Macquarie Island is known as Australia’s Sub-Antarctic jewel and is home to a large variety of wildlife, including thousands of elephant, leopard and fur seals and millions of penguins. The island has been designated a World Heritage site. Since 1948 the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) has maintained a permanent base, the Macquarie Island Station, which usually varies from 20 to 40 people over the year. Weather and tides will play heavily on the decisions made by the Captain and Expedition Leader to make the most of the two days visiting the island. Macquarie holds a King Penguin colony of more than 200,000 pairs, as well as colonies of Rockhopper, Royal and Gentoo Penguins. In addition one might see some of the 72 species of birds including the Wandering, Black-browed, Grey-headed and Light-mantled Sooty Albatross.

Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
As Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart is Australia’s second oldest capital city. At the entrance of the Derwent River and surrounded by well-preserved bushlands, Hobart’s interesting mix of elegant heritage sandstone buildings and modern architecture seems to hide the early convict history. During our stay we can see Salamanca Market, reputed to be Australia’s best outdoor market.   

Maria Island, Australia
We will explore Darlington Probation Station, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the few areas where the bushland has been left unchanged since the convict times. It is the most intact of the probation stations in Australia. As Australia’s only island National Park, Maria Island is also one of Tasmania's best places to go bird-watching. Eleven of the state's twelve endemic species can be seen on Maria Island, including the endangered Forty-spotted Pardalote and the rare and unique Cape Barren Goose. Other special animals include wombats, as well as pademelons, Forester kangaroos, Bennett’s wallabies and the nocturnal Tasmanian devils.

Flinders Island, Australia
As the largest of the Furneaux Group, Flinders Island is an island of surprising beauty. A strenuous 5-hour walk to the top of Strzelecki Peak, Flinders Island’s highest peak of spectacular Devonian granite, will permit amazing views –even of mainland Tasmania in good conditions. Wandering Albatross, Pacific Gulls, raptors, wedgetails, sea eagles, and Cape Barren Geese, as well as millions of shearwaters can be found on Flinders Island.

Phillip Island, Australia
There are several excellent bird-watching locations on Phillip Island and bird-watchers will be delighted to see two evening events along Phillip Island’s spectacular coast: at Summerland Bay one to see the world’s smallest penguin in its natural habitat from viewing stands and boardwalks. As the sun is setting, Little Penguins waddle up the beach to the safety of their homes in the sand dunes. One can also look for Short-tailed Shearwaters as they return each evening from the sea.

 

Cultural Highlights:

  • Learn about the various conservation projects going on to help the UNESCO World Heritage sites visited.
  • See historic sites and areas related to Australia’s convict times.

 

Wildlife Watch List:

  • Penguins: Snares Crested, Erect-crested, Fiordland, Little Blue, Yellow-eyed, Rockhopper, King, Royal and Gentoo Penguins
