16 Night Cruise sailing from Perth to Melbourne aboard Azamara Journey.
Give the gift of the land down under with a 16-night Australian cruise. We’ll cross the Great Australian Bight, visiting nine ports, culminating in an unforgettable New Year’s celebration in Sydney. Want more? Begin your journey even earlier with one of our pre-voyage land programs.
This adventure begins in Perth, followed by stops in Albany to view its beautiful Victorian architecture, and Esperance—home of Cape Le Grand National Park. Then, celebrate Christmas at sea, where we’ll take care of the feasts and festivities while you unwrap two days of relaxation.
After Christmas, the gifts keep coming, starting with a late stay in Adelaide, then a hop over to Kangaroo Island. Next up is Portland. Take a walk along the picturesque waterfront to view the city's original architecture, including buildings that date back as early as 1845. After a day at sea enjoying onboard shopping, entertainment, and relaxing in the spa, you’ll discover Eden, a rugged paradise on Earth that that lives up to its name.
We arrive in Sydney just in time to ring in the New Year. Sydney is renowned for its New Year’s celebrations, including aerial displays, traditional aboriginal ceremonies, and fireworks high above the iconic Opera House. And, since Sydney is such a beautiful port, we’re staying for two nights. That means more time to relax on Bondi Beach before we conclude our adventure in Melbourne.
Highlights of this cruise:
Situated beside the Swan River, Perth is a magical place to explore. Start in Kings Park on Mount Eliza for an enchanting treetop walk. To indulge in some retail therapy, visit the high-end fashion boutiques of King Street. You can’t miss the historic port of Fremantle with its prison & shipwreck galleries. And just north of Perth lies Swan Valley, Western Australia's oldest wine region.
Beaches beckon in this western port town. Dig your toes into Australia’s whitest sand beach and gaze out at over 100 islands in the archipelago. Hikers will be left stunned by the incredible views on the Cape Le Grand Coastal Trail, while animal lovers will make memories as they get up-close and personal with penguins, sea lions, dolphins, and more on Woody Island.
You’ll find more than just kangaroos on Kangaroo Island. There are also koalas, platypus, ring-tailed possums, birds, and 45 plant species found nowhere else on Earth. Watch penguins, pelicans, whales, and sea lions at Seal Bay Conservation Park, and see more sheep than people—at a ratio of about 136 to one. Be sure to sample the island’s famous cheeses, honey, and inspired wines.
One of the Southern Hemisphere’s most spectacular cities, Sydney’s amazing architecture and beachy atmosphere often start or begin our Australia and New Zealand cruises. Discover a city where water is the way to travel, and explore intriguing convict history, expansive green spaces, and trendy districts.
Discover what life is like in the world’s most livable city! Melbourne is A UNESCO City of Literature and Australia’s cultural capital. It is home to arts, music, and an unparalleled sporting scene. Effortlessly walkable, spend your time here strolling the quaint arcades and laneways. Be sure to take in the stunning 19th-century architecture, St. Kilda Beach, the Royal Botanical Gardens, and more!
