There is so much to discover in your own backyard! Enjoy our beautiful island from the ocean and cruise from major cruise hubs such as Sydney and Perth to discover beautiful coastal locations throughout the country from Darwin to Tasmania. Embark on a cruise at a departure port near you, such as Sydney, Perth, Darwin, Hobart, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Make sure you don’t underestimate the importance of including Tasmania in your Australia trip. After all, this is the only place where you could encounter the Tasmanian devil in its natural habitat.
Don’t just visit Uluru – Kata Tjuta makes for an utterly eye-opening experience, as you can take a guided walk between the immense bodies of rock nestled in the middle of the Australian outback.
The best time to travel around Australia depends on where you’d like to go. If you’re interested in heading towards the outback, you’re best off visiting between May and October, when exploring spectacular Uluru will be at its most enjoyable. For trips to Sydney, between October and March are generally the best times to appreciate the sights and parks. Or, if you’d like to cruise to Tasmania, a great time to visit would be between November and March, as temperatures can drop quite considerably there in winter.
Among the most popular ports on an Australia cruise are Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin and Brisbane – and Airlie Beach. Cruises to Airlie Beach offer you the perfect opportunity to go visit the picture-perfect Whitsunday Islands or the flawless Whitehaven Beach. On the other side of the country, Hobart also boasts an action-packed itinerary, with wine tasting and stunning nature. Or, alternatively, a trip to Cairns will take you to a world-famous UNESCO site: the Great Barrier Reef.
Take a trip around Australia with P&O Australia or Carnival Australia – and you should certainly consider combining these trips with visits and stopovers in New Zealand; it would be a shame not to! Or, if you would like travel further afield, vibrant Asian metropolises such as Singapore or Kuala Lumpur are also not too far away. Whether you’re travelling as a family or as a single person, Australia cruises are so diverse, they offer every cruiser all they could dream of – and more!
Encounter the best of unique Australian nature, such as koalas, kangaroos or even a Tasmanian devil in its natural habitat. Sunbathe on some of the world’s most flawless beaches on the east coast, go diving in the iconic Great Barrier Reef or explore thrilling Metropolises such as Sydney or Brisbane.
