Experience an adventure like no other aboard the new Golden Horizon as she heads to Australia for the first time on this 15 night cruise-stay from Bali to Cairns with Tradewind Voyages (represented by small ship specialist Cruise Traveller). The World’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, Golden Horizon is a near replica of the 1913-built ocean vessel, France II and retains the charm, adventure and romance of an historic ship combined with modern luxuries and a sustainable twist – sailing without using propulsion, wherever possible.
Your 15 night fly, cruise and stay package starts on 7 December 2021. From Bali, voyage east towards the Lesser Sunda Islands, stopping off at sun-blessed beaches in Lombok – a surfers` paradise – and visiting Komodo at a time when the mountains seem to glow a jade-coloured hue. Here you can relax on one of the pink sand beaches or discover Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to the Komodo dragon. Then set sail to the islands of Sumba and East Timor before Golden Horizon starts a circumnavigation of Australia, reaching Darwin and crossing the Gulf of Carpentaria down to the Great Barrier Reef and Cairns. In Darwin, explore the restaurant scene and galleries full of indigenous art. The Great Barrier Reef is waiting to be explored from Lizard Island; and this voyage ends in Cairns on 22 December 2021, a vibrant city known as the gateway to the Daintree Rainforest.
