Australia highlights: wide open spaces, cool cities, outdoors ruggedness

From cosmopolitan cities to the rugged outback, it’s no wonder Australia is a dream destination for so many people. While Bondi Beach buzzes with surfers, Yorkey’s Knob in Cairns is a slice of paradise and the Great Barrier Reef (over 900 islands) is an oceanic wonder teeming with exotic marine life.

The indigenous wildlife is like nowhere else, from kangaroos to koalas. You’re guaranteed a close encounter at Brisbane’s Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Melbourne Zoo. Your Australia cruise takes you to the unmissable city of Sydney where the Opera House and Harbour Bridge will be familiar landmarks, and the cultural hot bed of Brisbane where people from all over the world have found a home.

Australia is vast and exciting, and on your Australia cruise, we’ll show you its best parts whether you’re inclined to surf, snorkel or walk, soak up the culture or top up your tan.

Weather & what to pack

Australia is warm or hot and dry for most of the year, so pack comfortable, loose clothing as well as your sunhat and sun cream. Take flat shoes for exploring and a back pack to store your souvenirs. And don’t forget those upside down seasons – Australians celebrate Christmas with a barbie on the beach!
