Western Australia Set to Sail Again

#expeditioncruising .



Australia's pioneering small ship cruise line, Coral Expeditions, confirms operations will restart in Western Australia this month, its 25th year of continuous operations in the state. The company has attained all required state and federal approvals including the endorsement of their travel industry leading SailSAFE plan. The announcement marks another significant milestone for the Australian expedition cruise industry. Coral Expeditions has been continuously operating incident-free in the Great Barrier Reef and Tasmania since October 2020 and have just completed a very successful inaugural voyage in South Australian waters last week.

How many South Australians could name all of the islands off the 5000km of shoreline? That would be quite a feat, as there are almost 350 of them.

From on Board: Coral Adventurer's Wild Islands and Walks of South Australia - Flinders Island

One of the things I love about expedition cruising is the ability to visit remote islands often overlooked by tourism. Flinders Island, a little more than 36 square kilometres and about 30 kilometres from the nearest mainland town, Elliston, is one such example.

When you consider there are more than 80 ships wrecked around Kangaroo Island (KI) and the peninsulas, you'd think lighthouses would have been a priority for the fledgeling colony of South Australia.
