Total length of cruise: 17 - nights

Begin your fantastic 17 night Northern Australia Explorer Cruise from Sydney onboard the magnificent Dawn Princess. Relax and enjoy your leisurely days on the sea as you cruise to:

Sydney
This "capital of the Pacific rim" offers a myriad of sights, such as the world-famous Opera House, incredible Sydney Harbour, and the golden sands of Bondi Beach to name just a few. You'll need a couple days extra to explore them all. For envious photos, don't miss the superb views from the nearby Blue Mountains or the Harbour Bridge. And if you really want to experience the land Down Under, duck into a local pub for some meat pies, Australia beer and good conversation with the friendly locals.

Brisbane
Once considered the "country cousin" of Australia's cities, Brisbane is today the nation's third largest metropolis. Lying on the banks of the Brisbane River, this cosmopolitan city boasts elegant 19th century sandstone buildings, a lively cultural scene and superb parklands. Brisbane is also the gateway to adventures with a uniquely Australian flavor, whether it is to a wildlife park, the rain-forested Mount Tamborine plateau, or the dazzling beaches of Queensland's fabled Gold Coast.

Cairns

Alotau
Welcome to an undiscovered paradise of white-sand beaches, crystal waterfalls and volcanic mountains. And if you've come for history, you'll find that, too. This peaceful town was the site of fierce fighting during World War II. Today, it's a peaceful retreat offering the vacationer plenty of time to relax and connect with nature. Beyond the city you'll find a tropical rainforest full of birds of paradise and a laid-back ease worth discovering.

Darwin
Closer to Indonesia than to any other Australian city, Darwin is the capital of the "Top End" - the remote, vast Northern Territory. Home to more than half of the territory's population, the city reflects the rugged endurance and individualism required to survive the Outback. Darwin also boasts a colorful history to add to that heritage. During World War II the Japanese bombed the city and threatened invasion. In 1974, Cyclone Tracy cut a destructive swath through the region. In addition, man-eating crocodiles, tropical monsoons, searing heat and bush fires that burn for weeks are all part of everyday life.

Kimberley Coast
Located in the northern part of Western Australia, Kimberley is one of the continent's earliest settled regions, dating as far back as 40,000 years. But although its mainland has been inhabited for centuries, its over 8,000 miles of ruggedly beautiful coastline remain so unspoiled that the Kimberley Coast has been identified as one of the least impacted marine environments in the world.

Broome
In the 1870s, pearl fishermen discovered the rich waters of Roebuck Bay. A decade later, Broome was founded as a base for the pearl trade and was soon described as "the pearling capital of the world." Japanese, Chinese and Aborigine divers toiled in arduous, dangerous labor to harvest oysters from the seabed. For all its importance to the pearling industry, Broome remained a remote outpost on Australia's Kimberley Coast until its discovery as a travel destination. The legacy of its pearling days can be seen in the town's colorful mix of 19th- and early 20th century buildings. Broome also boasts Cable Beach - a 13-mile strand of white-sand that stretches along the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.

Geraldton
The capital of the Batavia Coast was founded in 1850 as a commercial port serving the Northampton lead mine some 30 miles to the north. While Geraldton remains one of Western Australia's major ports, the city has become a magnet for vacationing Australians. Located between the Chapman and Greenough Rivers, Geraldton boasts a superb Mediterranean climate, scenic beauty and pristine beaches. Coronation Beach has become an international destination for windsurfers.

Fremantle (Perth)
Historic Fremantle is your gateway to Perth, the capital of Western Australia. Situated some 15 miles upriver from Fremantle on the banks of the Swan River, Perth is a growing, bustling city where soaring high rises coexist with sandstone buildings from the colonial era. The population in and around Perth makes up some 8% of Western Australia's population. And it's here that life moves at a slower pace, from the wonders of the bush to the wineries of the Swan Valley.
