New e-book released by Australis: A Complete Guide to Exploring the ‘Southern Cone’

Fare freeze for next two summers

A new e-book released by Patagonian cruise line, Australis, aims to provide Australians with an easy guide to planning a holiday to the ‘Southern Cone’ – countries in South America south of the Tropic of Capricorn, including Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, southern Brazil and Paraguay.

The Southern Cone of the continent is known for its diverse flora, fauna and striking natural landscapes. Andean mountains, the untouched wilderness of Patagonia, southern Brazil’s subtropical coastline,  Argentina’s fascinating blend of indigenous and European heritage, and Uruguay’s historic and welcoming cities are just some of the attractions the Southern Cone has to offer.

Titled ‘A Complete Guide to Exploring the Southern Cone’, the 23-page e-book aims to bring together all the information travellers need to begin planning their adventure holiday, including 12 unmissable highlights of the area, five two-week travel itinerary options and country-specific travel tips, including information on visas, currency and the best times to visit.

Highlights in the e-book include Argentina’s awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier, Brazil’s spectacular Iguazu Falls, the largely untouched Chilean Fjords and the Chaco – a semi-arid floodplain in Paraguay known for its abundance of plants, land formations and animals, including flamingos, jaguars, pumas and armadillos.

The e-book can downloaded for free, along with others on South American travel, on the e-book download page of Australis’ website- . Direct link –

Also included in the eBook are details about Australis’ own ‘bottom of the world’ cruises, which can be added to a holiday in the region. These cruises – from three to seven nights long – provide travellers with the chance to explore glaciers, fjords and penguin colonies at the southern-most tip of South America.  Australis is the only cruise line to offer regular cruises through the region.

The cruise line’s 210-passenger Stella Australis will be joined by brand, new sister ship, Ventus Australis, on January 2, 2018. The Patagonian summer cruise season extends from September to April each year. Both vessels offer panoramic cabin windows, complimentary excursions and gourmet cuisine including local dishes and Chilean and Argentine wines.

Australis has indefinitely frozen fares for its 2017/18 and 2018/19 summer seasons at the same level as those for the recent 2016/2017 season, and is also offering a 10 per cent discount to passengers who combine two four-night cruises to create an eight-night exploration of the spectacular fjords of the Magellan Strait, Beagle Channel and Tierra del Fuego.

Fares for four-night sailings aboard Ventus Australis in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons are available from US$1440 person, twin-share. A combo eight-night cruise is available from US$2592 per person, twin-share, including a 10 per cent discount. Prices include guided excursions ashore and beverages through an open-bar.
