Things to Do on an Australia & New Zealand Cruise with Cunard Line


When you cruise to Australia and New Zealand with Cunard Line, you’re cruising to whole new worlds of adventure and culture in landscapes unlike those in any other part of the world. Only an Australia cruise gives you the opportunity to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy a night out at the Sydney Opera House and go on a rainforest rafting adventure in Cairns – all while only unpacking once! And in New Zealand—also known as Middle Earth from Lord of the Rings—you can sample award-winning wines, learn about the Maori culture and visit a colony of seals off New Zealand’s rugged south coast. Continue below to preview some of the memorable shore experiences available to you on select Cunard cruises to Australia and New Zealand:
