Highlights of this cruise:

Sydney, Australia
Considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney offers so much—from beaches and wineries to stunning landmarks and world-class shopping. Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium’s underwater walkways, or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower. You’re never far from nature in this thriving urban center. Well-known surf beaches, zoos, national parks, whale watching tours, bush tours, and the Royal Botanic Gardens—featuring over 7,500 plants—offer visitors a chance to enjoy the area’s sunshine, lush greenery, wildlife, and clear blue oceans. Sydney is not only Australia’s oldest city, it is also one of the most ethnically diverse cities on the globe, offering a wealth of cuisines, unique museums, and cultural opportunities. Explore lively pubs, shops, and historic buildings at The Rocks, located on Sydney harbor.

Melbourne, Australia
Melbourne offers modern elegance that stays true to its local Aboriginal and Australian roots. As Australia’s cultural hub, the city is home to over a dozen fascinating museums. Melbourne Museum features diverse interactive exhibits, as well as an extensive collection of indigenous and postmodern art. Explore Gold-Rush-era buildings in trendy multicultural neighborhoods where chic restaurants, stylish rooftop bars, and street art vie for attention. Unwind at the Royal Botanic Gardens and meet kangaroos, wallabies, and Tasmanian Devils at the Healesville Sanctuary. For more action, enjoy a lively football, cricket, grand-slam tennis event, or Formula One race. Just outside the city, you’ll find some of the most spectacular natural scenery. Take a dramatic coastal ride along the breathtaking Great Ocean Road. Or, visit the 12 Apostles, a land of stunning rock stacks that rise out of the ocean, each with its own story. Melbourne’s cultural diversity is also reflected brilliantly in its cuisine. Sample Chinese fare in Chinatown, enjoy Spanish tapas at bohemian Fitzroy, or sample Lebanese cuisine at Brunswick. Try fish and chips and a strong stout at a local pub.

Adelaide, South Australia
Cruise to Adelaide and discover an elegant city of church spires, multicultural gastronomy, and thriving arts. Adelaide's wide thoroughfares and graceful cosmopolitan style lead to a variety of activities just outside the city limits. Sample wines from more than 200 local vineyards that take advantage of the cool climate and diverse geography of the Adelaide Hills. The environment enables a range of grape varieties, from aromatic Riesling to full-bodied Shiraz. The South Australian wine industry produces more than half of the country's wine output. Travelers can also visit one of several wildlife sanctuaries during their cruises from Adelaide. Venture out to Cleland Wildlife Park to wander among the kangaroos, wallabies, and emus, or tour the Warrawong Sanctuary to spot exotically named species like the brush-tailed bettongs and bilbies. Adelaide is world famous for opals, the national gemstone of Australia. They range from clear to green, blue, magenta, even black, the rarest color. Travelers on Adelaide cruises often shop for these locally mined stones in the area’s fine shops.
