    The highlights of this cruise

    As MELBOURNE’S twinkling skyline shimmers in the evening sun, the EUROPA sets out on a course along Australia’s east coast. EDEN is an idyllic and charming seaside resort where you can savour the oysters freshly caught by the local fishermen on a boat trip*. SYDNEY started out in the 18th century as a penal colony in the district known as The Rocks. These days, behind the restored facades, you will find chic boutiques, galleries and pubs, which serve pints until late into the night. Enjoy the hospitality and zest for life of Australia’s biggest city for two full days – on a walk along legendary Bondi Beach or on an excursion to see the rock formations, valleys and waterfalls of the Blue Mountains*. The subtropical climate and summery, laid-back atmosphere in BRISBANE also make it easy to enjoy the lifestyle. Large parks laid out along the Brisbane River are a great place to relax, as is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary*. The wildlife reserve is home to koalas, kangaroos and wallabies and gives visitors the opportunity to see these native animals up close. FRASER ISLAND is a natural paradise with hundreds of small lakes, rainforests and endless sand dunes. Walk along 75 Mile Beach on the largest sand island in the world. You can spend a relaxing day on the island of MIDDLE PERCY, which is idyllic with its white sandy beaches and scented eucalyptus trees. Set off for the Great Barrier Reef from AIRLIE BEACH. Enjoy unforgettable views of the Heart Reef in the middle of the turquoise ocean on a scenic flight*. The best opportunity for getting close to the colourful inhabitants of the coral reef awaits in CAIRNS. The boat will take you to the edge of the Great Barrier Reef*, where you can admire the beauty of the underwater world on a snorkelling trip. High up in the tropical rainforest, on the other hand, on the walkway through the treetops in Wooroonooran National Park, you will find yourself on a level with the chorus of birds. A special experience awaits early risers: float high above Cairns at sunrise in a hot-air balloon* and enjoy the magnificent views of the spectacular scenery. Unspoilt nature also surrounds DARWIN. Visit Litchfield National Park* where you may see crocodiles if you’re lucky. Or stay in the country’s most northerly city to learn more about the culture of the Aborigines in a museum. Enjoy your last days relaxing on board, before heading back to Germany from BENOA.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.

    Experience the world’s best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: Four courses
    € 2,490 per person

    The west coast of Australia offers plenty of opportunities, both for your game and for you to discover the region’s natural beauty. Starting out from the south, its treasure trove will be revealed, with golf courses showcasing the local flora, as well as breathtaking experiences of the fauna. Who wouldn’t want to share their score with kangaroos and crocodiles?

    Tue 09.01.2024 Eden, Australia – Pambula Merimbula Golf Club
    Just a short drive from Merimbula Beach, the fairways of this 27-hole course make their way through a eucalyptus grove. The otherwise fairly straight course should please every player, especially as you will never feel alone on your round. That’s because the entire course is also home to the resident kangaroos. This audience from the animal kingdom is enough to ensure an unforgettable golfing experience.

    Thu 11.01.2024 Sydney, Australia – Bonnie Doon GC
    Not far from the opera house and Bondi Beach, 18 parkland-style holes await. You can look forward to broad fairways, which are only partially edged by bunkers. There are also generously designed final landing areas, which are highly modulated in places. The 14th hole – a par 5 at 505 metres (552 yards) for gentlemen and 435 metres (476 yards) for ladies – will be one to remember as a particular challenge.

    Thu 18.01.2024 Cairns, Australia – Cairns GC
    This very open parkland course has some very long holes. The natural fairways offer plenty of landing area, ensuring any level of player a chance at achieving a handicap round. Just a few unusually shaped sand bunkers here and there stand in the way of your goal. A course that promises an enjoyable round of golf.

    Mon 22.01.2024 Darwin, Australia – Darwin Golf Club
    This tropical resort course is also impressive thanks to its symbiosis between nature and classic fairways. The course layout manages to integrate the natural fauna and flora into your golf session. The fairways are almost always very generous and, above all, lead straight towards the lightly modulated greens. There’s nothing to stand in the way of achieving an impressive score on this enjoyable round.

    GENERAL INFORMATION

    • In order to guarantee a comfortable flow of play for all golfers, we have determined a basic speed, which is sufficient for a playing time of 4.5 to 5 hours on foot (covering 18 holes with a trolley).
    • Due to tournaments, renovations, etc. at the various golf clubs, our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to change at short notice.
    • Golf & Cruise voyages allow all players with a handicap of 36 or less to play on courses all over the world. 
    • Additional courses can only be booked in conjunction with the basic package.
    • The reservation of e-carts cannot always be guaranteed due to local availability and weather conditions. You may, therefore, have to play and walk just with trolleys - possibly even on hilly courses. Please consider this when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package. 
    • Halfway refreshments are always ordered via the respective golf club; we have no influence on the quality of the snacks. We kindly ask for your understanding.
    • When booking a Golf & Cruise package and flights through Hapag-Lloyd, we will register your golf equipment directly with the airlines – when possible and required. The current baggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. In your travel documents, which you will receive about four weeks prior to departure, you will find relevant information about this. Excess baggage fees for golf equipment are normally to be paid at check-in.
    • Minimum number of participants for basic packages: 12 persons.
    • Minimum number of participants for additional courses: 10 persons.
    • If the minimum number of participants is not reached, cancellation will occur no later than eight weeks prior to cruise departure.
    • Rental clubs for right-handed and left-handed players are available on board, subject to a surcharge.
