Battle of Milne Bay Cruise

Discover the history of Alotau and the legendary Battle of Milne Bay by a local history expert aboard the Undersea Explorer, a 24 metre steel cruising boat. Relax in air-conditioned comfort or under the shade on the bow or sun deck seating. The local historian will take you back in time and shed light on the area’s amazing hidden history. The backdrop is the Sterling Range, the magnificent jungle clad mountains that rise to over 457 metres within a mile from the coastline. Many young Australians encountered these rugged conditions during the Battle of Milne Bay, 75 years ago. Enjoy the spectacular landscapes from the ocean and learn about the area’s WWII significance.
