In 2020, Coral Expeditions is celebrating 35 years of pioneering expeditions. From humble beginnings on the Great Barrier Reef, to planning an expeditionary crossing of the Indian Ocean, we have come so far! To commemorate this milestone in our history, we have a series of Circumnavigation voyages. These special expeditions explore history, culture, wildlife and adventure in true Coral Expeditions style, like we have done so for the past 35 years.
We take a voyage to circumnavigate this great land, to see the coast the way that mariners throughout history have seen it, and to explore key historical sites that shaped Australia. The great unknown land, Terra Australis Incognita, was for centuries imagined but uncharted, before explorers sailed to the edge of the world to find it. They discovered a land which was not unknown to the many indigenous tribes who lived throughout the vast island continent, and from that moment created a new history with both magnificent and terrible deeds. 2020 is the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s landing, the 200th anniversary of Philip Parker King’s explorations, and the 35th anniversary of Coral Expeditions.
