1

Sun 26 Jan - Melbourne, Australia

Departs 18:00 Originally part of New South Wales, Victoria became a colony in its own right in 1851. The discovery of gold and the development of agriculture launched Melbourne’s rise to prominence and prosperity. Flower gardens and graceful, tree-lined boulevards give Melbourne its refined air, and it is considered the hub of Australia’s cultural, intellectual and financial life. Certainly by Melbournians.

Mon 27 Jan - At Sea

3

Tue 28 Jan - Adelaide, Australia

Arrives 07:00 – Departs 17:00 Connoisseurs of New World wines are in luck. Around a third of all Australia’s supply is produced an hour or less from church-sprinkled Adelaide, a legacy of German settlers in the early 1800. Cheers! The gorgeous Magill Estate is perhaps the best known of these wonderful vineyards. It’s a wonderful spot for a first-class tasting experience in the rolling South Australian countryside.

Wed 29 Jan - At Sea

5

Thu 30 Jan - Hobart, Australia

Arrives 10:00 – Departs 21:00 Although some parts of the mountainous island of Tasmania are filled with impenetrable rain forests, others are foggy meadowlands that resemble the Yorkshire countryside. Hobart is perfect for a walking tour; many streets feature historic cottages and rows of antiques shoppes. The city’s long-ago days as a penal colony are recalled in the handsome sandstone buildings constructed by convicts.

Fri 31 Jan - At Sea

7

Sat 01 Feb - Burnie, Australia

Arrives 08:00 – Departs 17:00
Sitting on a beautiful stretch of Tasmania’s North West Coast, port city Burnie may have industrial roots, but it has since reinvented itself as a creative enclave and the state’s fourth largest city.
With about 40 per cent of Tasmania designated as a World Heritage Area of national parks and reserves, you can enjoy a wide range of wilderness experiences available from this laid-back market town.
8

Sun 02 Feb - Melbourne, Australia

Arrives 07:00
Queen Elizabeth evokes the heyday of Hollywood glamour and elegance. Her wood panelling, gleaming chandeliers, marble flooring and beautiful decorative touches exude luxury.
