The waters around Australia have been explored by some of the most famous adventurers that the world has ever know and remain a popular choice for those who want to enjoy a voyage of discovery of their own.
Exploring the coast around Australia and New Zealand provides the chance to marvel at the scenic beauty of some of the most impressive landscapes in the world.
It also allows those on a once-in-a-lifetime cruise break to marvel at the majesty of the Great Barrier Reef, with the chance to go diving surrounded by marine life as you explore the longest barrier reef in the world.
Sitting alongside that on the Queensland coast are a number of stunningly beautiful islands, which are also ideal for those who want to explore off the beaten track.
It’s a similar story when it comes to scenic beauty on New Zealand soil, with the Fiordland region on the South Island mixing towering mountains and huge glaciers with crystal clear waters that you can visit on a cruise in from the coast.
A cruise around the waters of Australasia isn’t all about the scenic delights however, with the chance to visit bustling and busy cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland where you will be left spoiled for choice when it comes to what to do with your time ashore.
If you are looking for an unforgettable cruise experience, then Australasia could be just for you.
