Volendams circumnavigation of Australia next year.


Recommended Posts

I was just checking out Volendams next season, and she is going to do an amazing Around Australia cruise with a few surprise calls.

Canberra being one and another I cant find much info on is Sherrard Island.

Appears that may overnight there?

What a fabulous itinerary:)

That certainly is a great itinerary. Having Canberra as a port of call has been queried previously. Would they land by tender into Batemans Bay? Esperance is a great port of call.

 

Cheers,

Evon.

it does look a good itinerary but Batemans Bay is a long way from Canberra and by going to Indonesia they will be able to duty free

Batemans Bay is 145km from Canberra, but it is the closest big coastal town to Canberra. I think it would have been better if they had described the port as 'Batemans Bay (for Canberra)' or something similar. :):)

I wonder if there is a mistake here... as Newcastle is up the coast going north and then she heads back down south to where ever they will get to canberra..joanne

 

I have always wondered about Newcastle as well seeing it is so close to Sydney. Perhaps it is for those who fly in direct to the ship from the States and dont get a chance to do the Hunter Valley before they leave Sydney.

The tours to Canberra wont be cheap as they will have to pay for the bus's to come down from Sydney to take them to Canberra for the day. If they have an early start they may even have to come down the night before and put the drivers and guides up in Hotels... if are there any there?:D

Any one found Sherrard Island yet?

I cant even find it on a map:eek:

hi kiwi Kruzer, i did a google search and i came up with this i dont know if its correct

 

Sherrard Island is part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park West of Cape Melville, Queensland and East of Coen between the first three mile opening and the second three mile opening of the Barrier Reef about 100km South East of Lockhart River in the Osborn Channel.

The island is 10km East of Old Lochart River and 30km South of Cape Direction.

Wouldn't it make more sense to use buses based in Canberra or Wollongong? :):) By the way, there is a fair bit of tourist infrastructure in Batemans Bay and surrounding areas.

I know that Evon.....;)

I am just being naughty and thinking of what the cruise line will tell the passengers in order to justify a higher price for their tours.:D

You can do a day tour to Canberra from Sydney.

Day 3 is Batemans Bay, tenders in to the wharf. No doubt Princess tours to Canberra to see the sights. 2 hours each way up the Kings Hwy over the Great Dividing Range, long day. Also some good things to see locally. Don't forget Les's local tours might be there, US$ only, plus 15% gratuity of course. Heh, Heh.
