Our island home is our fortress, and our waters have protected us well.
Now we can explore them as never before, with Australian owned, Aurora Expeditions, on their first, Australian Expedition season.
From June 2021 to February 2022, the world’s newest small expedition ship will cruise from Arnhem Land to Antarctica, on voyages lasting from 7-26 days, departing from Darwin, Broome, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart.
Explore in safety and comfort on the Sylvia Earle. With just 130 passengers, you’ll be led by expedition specialists to enrich your understanding of the world around you.
In December the ship sets out across the Southern Ocean for 3 epic voyages to Antarctica, the only Antarctica expeditions leaving from Australia.

Now is a great time to rediscover our own backyard, so in July Rose hit the road to explore NSW. Here she shares the big skies and other highlights of her road trip through southern and western New South Wales.
Tasmania is known around the world for its pristine beauty and protected wilderness areas, making it an absolute mecca for walking and hiking.
Short walks can be found everywhere, including the major cities. Hobart even has overnight walks, staying in hidden cabins on Kunyani.
From the moment I contacted Forward Travel, I knew I was in good hands.
The attention and warm welcome I received made me feel that deciding to travel with Forward Travel was without doubt the right choice.
Rose and David got to know what I was looking for in my travel experience and nailed the itinerary first go.
Nepal turned out to be everything that I imagined.
I know where I’ll be booking my travel arrangements moving forward.
Standing on the bow as we glided through the serenely beautiful, and calm Lemaire Channel on a perfect, sun filled day, was the realisation of my travel dreams.
To be there, amongst the ice, surrounded by soaring peaks and passing wildlife, was the experience I had been hoping for, but even I didn’t dare to dream it would be that amazing.
The ‘Kodak Gap’ lived up to its name and gave me wonderful memories and photos to treasure forever.
I dreamed, we planned, you excelled.
TestimonialsStacey & Chris
We had a great time and all the local operators that assisted us were very helpful and professional. It’s hard to pick standouts but the train from Cusco to Puno was amazing as were the treks out of El Chalten (probably as the weather was perfect).
The hotels were just what we after, even the slightly eccentric Las Piedras in El Chalten.
Had all sorts of weather on the W walk but a couple of reasonable days. Have some great photos and even better memories, so all our mates are keen to go now.
I wanted to visit Antarctica but I had no idea about how I would do that!
When I talked to Forward Travel I was so blown away with the information I was getting.
It was first hand, not like going through a brochure…
I could live through the experiences they had already lived through.
They helped me to live my dreams…
It was much more than I had ever anticipated.
It was a surreal experience and I am so grateful.
TestimonialsA & W Rooney
We had been looking for a reputable travel company for a while to arrange our family trip to Norway, and we were struggling to find somebody that could talk to us about Norway with confidence.
Finally a friend recommended that we give Forward Travel a call, and after speaking with David there, there was an immediate sense of relief to finally be speaking to somebody that knew what they were talking about.
Norway was our first trip through Forward Travel, and I know who our future trips will be arranged through.
Well done you guys at Forward, exceptional work.
