Australia and New Zealand Cruises

Victoria, Australia

The number and variety of cruise itineraries available for Australia and New Zealand continues to grow. A cruise to this region is a fantastic way to visit more than one of these islands’ amazing – and different – cities, beaches and cultural attractions.


Major ports of call:


Australia

  • Adelaide, Australia
  • Melbourne, Australia
  • Perth (Fremantle), Australia
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Tasmania, Australia


New Zealand

  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Christchurch, New Zealand
  • Dunedin (Port Chalmers), New Zealand
  • Wellington, New Zealand


Some cruises of Australia and New Zealand may also include other parts of the South Pacific, such as Fiji or New Caledonia – known as “a little piece of France in the Pacific,” east of Australia.


Highlights:

  • Iconic Sydney Harbour, with its Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge
  • Melbourne’s world-famous events – the Australian Grand Prix, Australian Open Tennis, or the Melbourne Cup
  • 17 National Parks of Tasmania, many of which are part of a World-Heritage Wilderness
  • Winter skiing, sky diving, kayaking, white water rafting and more adventure in New Zealand
  • Winery tours, art galleries and other chances to experience local culture in Auckland, New Zealand, as well as throughout Australia


Keep in mind:

  • Being in the southern hemisphere, the seasons in Australia and New Zealand are opposite those of North America.
  • Be sure to plan an extra day or two on either side of your cruise to help adjust for jet lag.

About Judy Nikerson

 

I have been on over 30 cruises with various cruise lines and find cruising to be a great way to see many places and unpack once. My travel hasn't been limited to cruising as I have traveled extensively on land too. One of my favorite recent trips was a Wine River Cruise on the Danube River in Europe. "River Cruising is my new passion! I love the wine and delicious culinary special interest itineraries that river cruising offers!" I also provide businesses or groups who wish to have a seminar at sea the venue and guidance for a successful meeting/convention
