Great Barrier Reef and Indonesian Odyssey
From Sydney to Singapore, this cruise onboard the Pacific Explorer will take you to Gladstone and Cairns, then on to East Timor and the beautiful Indonesian islands of Lombok and Bali - all over 14 nights.
Our advice:
Discovered by western surfers in the 1980s, Lombok is now a popular destination for all kinds of travellers. Less busy than its neighbour, Bali, Lombok is a great spot for hiking, with fantastic volcanic landscapes.

Teresa
Trip with P&O Australia from Singapore
Set off from vibrant Singapore and travel to Bali and Komodo island before returning home to Australia. With plenty of days in port as well as days at sea, you get the best of both worlds and will have time to chill out as well as discover exotic cities.
Our advice:
Day 5 takes you to Komodo island! This is a dream destination for many Aussies and I recommend planning ahead to make the most out of your time there. Make sure to set aside some time to walk across the unique pink beach - an extremely rare sight, you're unlikely to find anywhere else!
