Australia / New Zealand Cruises

Explore the diversity of landscapes, beaches, and lifestyles on an unforgettable Australia cruise adventure or take a journey to the "Home of Middle Earth" on a New Zealand cruise vacation! Our collection of Australia cruises and New Zealand cruises provide discerning travelers the experience of a lifetime in a land that exemplifies adventure, natural beauty, and vitality.

An Australia cruise can take you to the hub of fascinating culture, unique culinary experiences, and into the heart of some of the greatest cities ripe with diversity, fascinating architecture, and exotic wildlife. An Australia cruise can take you along the Queensland coast, to the Great Barrier Reef, where you can take a sea plane or helicopter ride over the Daintree Rainforest, party in Arlie Beach, or go diving to explore the underwater caves and the SS Yongala shipwreck. You can also take in Aboriginal art styles along the Tanami Track or take a camel trek through rolling sand dunes in Australia's Red Centre.

An Australia cruise can take you to many exciting ports that exemplify Australia's heritage and cultural influences, such as the vibrant city of Melbourne, Australia's famous harbor city of Sydney, or the tropical paradise of Darwin. While in Brisbane, you can take in live music, shop along bustling outdoor malls, and enjoy the cultural core known as Fortitude Valley or take a stroll along a floating walkway over the river. In Melbourne, enjoy your daily cup of java in their gothic European laneways, go shopping in the lively Queen Victoria Market, or catch a performance by the Australian Ballet. Melbourne is also an ethnic food connoisseur's heaven, enjoy Italian classics in Carlton, Vietnamese goodies in Richmond, or head to Fitzroy for Spanish tapas. On your Australia cruise, besides the harbor of Sydney, the city offers a maze of art galleries; explore the historic Rocks, or walk the sea sculpted sandstone cliffs between Bondi and Coogee.

When your New Zealand cruise ports in Auckland, one of the first things you'll notice, whilst discovering this diverse urban city, is that the beach is always within half an hour away. This is why the unique city of Auckland offers some of the best whale and dolphin safaris. A New Zealand cruise can also take you to the river city of Whanganui, with its rich cultural heritage of Maori and European settlers, this city offers an experience unlike any other, such as the earthbound elevator that ascends to the top of the Durie Hill. For those who like a more laid back adventure you can take a gentle paddle steamer down the river.

With so much to explore on an Australia cruise or New Zealand cruise, maximizing your stay in the largest cosmopolitan island of our time will be key! With an outstanding influence of nature and culture to lush rainforests and renowned wine regions, there will never be a dull moment on your Australia/New Zealand cruise.

We enjoyed all the places we visited in Australia. The cities of Darwin, Cairns, Townsville and Brisbane were very clean and the people very friendly. We were thrilled on one occasion to see three wallabies in the wild. There were, of course, many zoos where one can see all the animals that are native to Australia, i.e. koalas, kangaroos, wombats, etc.
