Queensland's Islands & Reefs

7 Night Cruise

Cairns to Brisbane
Enjoy a soft expedition adventure along Australia's East coast on board Le Lapérouse.

Starting in Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, set sail towards Willis Islets in the Coral Sea Territories featuring not less than 30 separate reefs along with the spectacular Coral Sea Marine Park, as well as Willis Island where a monitoring station was established in 1921 to provide cylclone early warnings services to Queensland.

Continuing on to Hardy Reef, you will have the chance to explore the underwater environment either by sumi-submersive, underwater viewing chambers, snorkelling or diving.

On Percy Island, enjoy some relaxation time as your Zodiac® takes you to picturesque West Bay for a swim in the crystal-clear waters or a nature walk alongside your expedition team.

Next on your itinerary, experience world-class snorkelling on Lady Musgrave Island and its incredibly diverse and rich marine life including the endangered green turtles and loggerhead turtles, before reaching Brisbane, your disembarkation port.
