Things to Do on a Cruisetour to Australia and New Zealand

 

You’ll have no shortage of things to do when journeying through Australia and New Zealand on a cruisetour adventure. From magnificent natural formations like Ayers Rock and the living Great Barrier Reef to Sydney’s postcard-perfect Sydney Opera House, you’ll find amazing sites and stories at every turn. Highlighted below are a few of the best ways to spend your time on an Australia and New Zealand cruisetour:

 


Australia Cruisetours, The city skyline of Sydney, Australia
  • Enjoy a guided tour of Sydney with stops at the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. You’ll also have time to explore the city at your own leisure, perhaps visiting Bondi Beach, the Royal Botanic Gardens or the nearby Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair – a sandstone bench with excellent views of the harbour.
     
  • Head to the top of Sky Tower, the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest free-standing structure, for the most spectacular views of Auckland, New Zealand. From a vantage point like this, you can really start to appreciate the diversity of New Zealand’s landscape which features striking cliffs and mountains along with rolling meadows and beaches.
     
Australia Cruisetours, Baron falls outside Cairns in Australia
  • Visit Cairns’ Rainforest Station Nature Park in Kuranda and tour the grounds via WWII-era amphibious vehicles. Keep your eyes peeled for playful kangaroos, tiny wallabies, cute koalas and sneaky saltwater crocodiles as your navigate this tropical rainforest. You could also take a Skyrail journey to see Baron Falls, which is especially impressive after heavy rainfall.
     
  • Journey to Australia’s Northern Territory and experience the beauty within Litchfield National Park, located just outside of Darwin, Australia. You could even swim underneath some of the park’s scenic waterfalls. You can also visit Crocodylus Park for a close-up view of Australia’s snakes, big cats, monkeys and, of course, both saltwater and freshwater crocodiles.
     
Australia Cruisetours, Magnificent colours in the Great Barrier Reef
  • Travel to Port Douglas, your gateway to the incomparable Great Barrier Reef. Spend the day swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving among the reef’s natural underwater treasures and distinct species. If you prefer to stay dry, you can also enjoy the reef from an underwater observatory.
     
  • Make your way inland to the massive Ayers Rock in central Australia. Enjoy a gourmet barbeque dinner and stick around for sunset to watch as the rock changes colors under the waning light. You might hear about the history of Australia’s Aboriginals, learn to play the didgeridoo or take an astronomer-led stargazing tour.
