Small boat cruising is relatively new in Australia but it's a great way to reach remote destinations. This summer cruise in Tasmania took us to Port Davey in the South Western wilderness where believe it or not we got a fine suntan. We saw the beautiful and incredibly rare orange bellied parrot as well as seals, wallabies, pademelons, dolphins, back half of a whip snake, mutton bird rookeries, .... lots of other beautiful and interesting bird life. Other highlights were Maria Island and beautiful beaches on the Freycinet Peninsula. Scenery was magnificent.

Bouquets: Comfortable boat with good facilities (avoid the fancy top deck cabins if you get seasick - and even if you don't get seasick, it gets very rocky up there!)

Food was abundant and generally good although too many rich sauces. Fabulous seafood the first night - dozens and dozens of oysters!
