• Cruise Ship – Shore Excursions & Entertainment

    Book Now

Cruising is one of the best ways to see a destination, we know how much thought and time is put into researching the destinations, the cruise line and all the onboard features, not to mention the restaurants and activities. It’s the same with your shore excursions, you want to know that the one night you have in town is going to count – and the options are endless!

But when it comes to Aboriginal culture delivered in an authentic and real way, not commercialised, not touristy, then Spirits of the Red Sand is where you’ll find an exceptional way to interact, learn about and be entertained by Elders and Guides of this great Southern Queensland region.

Spirits of the Red Sand is much, much more than that though. It is an invitation for you to know first-hand the world’s oldest living culture. What does that mean?

If you want the true story? If you want to learn about the history of Australia? If you want to know the First Nations People now, you have to know our past. And, if you want to hear our stories then we invite you to walk in our footsteps as we share our culture, our traditions, our history – as we have done for generations – through the art of storytelling.

We promise that this will be a journey that will forever change the way you see the world around you, and will most certainly be the envy of all your fellow cruisers.

Experiences on offer include:

Exclusively for groups, you will be entertained by Australia’s #1 Aboriginal dance troupe, Nunukul Yuggera. After an authentic and mesmerising song and dance performance that interprets ancient traditions, engage all your senses as you learn about traditional Aboriginal life through our informative interactive stations with time for Q&A.

This exclusive experience is available day or night and can be hosted within the Spirits of the Red Sand unique venue, on-board your ship or at a location of your choice.

  • "Everyone must do this experience! It was such an emotional and educational evening, hearing the stories of the colonial era in Australia’s history. The story was told with raw emotion, truth and respect for all. The actors were fantastic, the food was delicious and to have the opportunity to talk with the cast afterward and hear where Australia is now was priceless... Spectacular!"
