The chefs, inspired by destination flavours, prepare cuisine from fresh regional produce. The wine cellars hold a curated selection of Australian wines, beers and spirits. Our guests love to mingle over drinks as the sun sets, enjoy daily educational presentations by the lecturers, participate in stargazing sessions after dark, or simply find a quiet corner on deck and enjoy the solitude.
