Australasia
Overview
A cruise is the perfect way to visit the Australasia region. Entering Sydney harbour past the famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge onboard a cruise ship is a great way to start. As well as sampling the delights of cosmopolitan cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, you can visit Australia's magnificent Ayres' Rock, go kangaroo spotting in the Kakadu National Park and go snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef.

Known for its wild, expansive outback, superb beaches and surfing grounds, Australia also has an incredible array of wildlife including kangaroos, koala bears, wombats and platypus and a vast coral reef teeming with marine life.

Hop across the Tasman Sea to discover New Zealand's breathtaking landscape - as seen by many in the Lord of the Rings films. Unspoilt coastlines, steep fjords and volcanoes set the scene for amazing outdoor activities ranging from bungee jumping and whitewater rafting to glacier skiing on Mount Cook and hiking the wonderful Milford Track.

New Zealand comprises two main islands - known simply as South Island and North Island - and numerous small islets. North Island boasts the bustling metropolis and world yacht racing capital of Auckland, exotic black sand beaches and lush green hills. While South Island's mountainous terrain and glaciers have earned it the title of the 'Switzerland of the South Pacific.'

Cruises to Australasia start in the autumn and carry on through the winter months. As the seasons are reversed, it's perfect weather for cruising. Australia and New Zealand are also often featured on itineraries on many around the world cruises.
