Aurora Expeditions is about to launch an Australian domestic program for 2021 with voyages to Tasmania and Western Australia’s Coral Coast and the Kimberley.
The new program will offer a full season of “immersive, adventurous and off-the-beaten-track voyages” around Australia, Commonwealth Bay and the Ross Sea (East Antarctica).
Aurora Expedition’ unique expedition program in Australia will commence as early as June 2021.
With 23 years of experience operating Australian expeditions, and 30 years’ experience operating in the polar regions, the activity rich voyages will explore the very best of our breathtaking coastlines, unique wilderness and wildlife, rich indigenous history and spectacular marine world, the company said.
Other destinations included in the program will include South West Edge, Ningaloo Reef, the Bass Strait Islands and more.
“After three decades at the forefront of polar expedition travel, we are beyond excited to be launching a season of incredibly unique expeditions that explore our beautiful island home,” said Aurora Expeditions CEO, Monique Ponfoort.
“Our highly experienced Australian team has crafted exceptional voyages of discovery and will deliver once-in-a-lifetime adventures as well as an unrivalled array of immersive activities by sea, land and air to our passionate expeditioners.”
It’s unclear which ship the new expeditions will be offered aboard, however Aurora Expeditions currently only operates one vessel, a long-term charter of the Greg Mortimer.
More information will be available on the itineraries, activities, expedition dates, and early bird discounts on
Thursday 4 March 2021 when expressions of interest will open to the public.
Bookings will open a week later on Thursday 11 March 2021.
