Join Sarina Bratton AM, Asia Pacific Chairman, for an extraordinary adventure along the north coast of the island of New Guinea. A brand-new 17-day expedition cruise brimming with cultural encounters and spectacular landscapes from Cairns to Darwin aboard Le Lapérouse.

Setting sail for Papua New Guinea, the world’s second largest island and a fascinating land home to no fewer than 1,200 ethnic groups.

Your call at Tufi will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your voyage. Dubbed the “Scandinavia of the Tropics”, you will be charmed by the picturesque vista of Fiords and lush mangrove forests where you will be welcomed by Papuan tribes keen to share their culture and art with you.

In the village of Kopar, situated at the mouth of the Sepik River, you will be welcomed with cultural performances and will witness life in a traditional village. As you voyage across Western New Guinea you will experience the spectacular Cenderawasih Bay, with an unforgettable opportunity to swim with whale sharks. Further west, spend time in the Bird’s Head Seascape at the heart of the famous Coral Triangle with some of the highest coral biodiversity on the planet.

Before disembarking in Darwin, you will experience the ‘Spice Islands’ – the Moluccas, visiting the charming Banda Neira, offering rich colonial history and a snorkelling possibility.
