Australia is the world's smallest continent and largest island. It is like nowhere else in the world. It's young, adventurous, stylish and friendly. It has unique animals and a fantastic climate and offers a wide and contrasting range of cruise experiences covering experiences from visiting the Barrier Reef to Tasmania.

Cruise Types
Major cruise lines offer itineraries along the Australian coast and often include the Islands of Noumea and Vanuatu from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Specialty cruises, generally in small ships with passenger numbers ranging from 10 to 00 allow passengers to explore Australia’s diverse coastline. These cruise destinations include the Barrier Reef, the largest living organism on the planet, which is a wonder of Coral, Birdlife & Sealife.; Australia’s Top End (northern Australia) with cruises operating from Darwin to Broome; and around Tasmania.

Cruise Seasons

While larger ship and Barrier Reef cruises are available year round, the Speciality cruises are seasonal. Tasmanian cruises operate in the Southern summer (November to March) while Top End cruises operate in the winter months (April to October)

Main Ports

The key embarkation ports include Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane but specialty cruise run from smaller ports such as Darwin, Wyndham and Broome

Weather

Australias seasons are the reverse of the Northern Hemisphere so Christmas here is in mid-summer and the coldest months are July and August. However Australia spans from the tropics (were winter is very pleasant and summer is hot and humid) to Tasmania which has a more temperate summer and cold winters.
