Compagnie du Ponant NEW Oceania Programme Video

Compagnie du Ponant today released a superb short video that showcases their all new Oceania Expedition Voyage Programme aboard L’Austral.

Ponant released their Oceania itineraries for the winter 2014/2015 in January and they have proven to be incredibly popular. The new itineraries soak up the very best of Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne, the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania, Auckland and Rotorua. We actually featured several of the voyages last month.

Oceania voyages offer guests the chance to really become one with Australia and New Zealand. From Auckland and its urban atmosphere to the national treasure that is Milford Sound and right through to one of the world’s most famous cities, Sydney, there is a wealth of exploring to be done and incredible experiences to be had.

Immerse yourself in local culture and learn about the aboriginal people during your time in Australia. Yirrkala is home to around 850 people who have successfully maintained their beliefs and ancestral lifestyle to this day. Many of them still paint on bark and continue to perform traditional ceremonies. This is something not to miss.

The Great Barrier Reef With its translucent lagoons and its myriad islands and islets is one of the most naturally beautiful treasures on earth and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are 1,500 species of fish and 400 species of coral and your Oceania voyage allows you the opportunity to see it up close and personal.

The Oceania voyages shall be aboard L’Austral which joined the Ponant fleet in 2011. She offers accommodation options for up to 132 guests which include 3 prestigious suites and 125 cabins that boast an outside view. Onboard you can also find the Ponant Yacht Spa, 2 outdoor swimming pools, library and restaurants including La Licorne and Le Boussole - In short she really is the latest generation luxury yacht.
