Because Cruise1st also offers a whole range of cruises and land tours, you can even use your departure destination as an opportunity to explore a new part of Australia. Have you always wanted to visit Perth? Or maybe you fancy discovering Melbourne’s stylish bar scene? How does going behind the scenes at the Sydney Opera House sound?

You can even do all three with one of our enchanting Australia cruises, which let you explore the various areas of our beautiful country all in one relaxing holiday. Whether you’re looking to book a Christmas cruise, a cruise far in advance, or just a last-minute getaway, we have plenty of cruise deals for you to choose from.

Whether Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, or Perth, embark on your cruise journey in Australia and sail around the country or head off to our neighbours in New Zealand with its incredible Fjordland National Park; faraway destinations in Asia, such as Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, or Vietnam; or tropical islands in the South Pacific like Fiji, Vanuatu, or New Caledonia. You can sail even farther out because Australia has also become a popular port for long-haul cruises to Africa, the Americas, and the Middle East.

Major Ports in Australia

Sydney: Australia’s iconic harbour city

Head to the capital of New South Wales to experience a city of exceptional natural beauty. Wander through the bustling streets and take a moment (or two) to appreciate the blending of old and new since Sydney showcases a mixture of architecture styles – some of which dates back more than 200 years.

Among the most contemporary architectural pieces in the city is the Sydney Opera House. Drawing in millions of visitors every year from all around the globe, the multi-purpose venue is one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. In addition to the more than 1,500 performances that take place in the distinctly designed building every year, the Sydney Opera House is also home to shops, eateries, cafés, bars, and a recording studio.

Sydney is also famous for its coastal beaches. Head to Bondi, Palm Beach, and Bronte if you want to hang ten, catch some ray, or just relax. You don’t have to wait for your cruise to begin to enjoy Sydney’s highlights; choose Sydney as your starting port and start your adventure on land.

Melbourne: Australia’s “melting pot” city

Cruisers who start their holidays in Melbourne will be in for a treat as the city offers a one-of-a-kind sightseeing experience. Since gold was discovered in the 19th century, Melbourne’s economy continues to thrive. Melbourne’s fascinating history has inspired exhibitions in its many museums. The Old Melbourne Gaol is one of the city’s oldest surviving buildings and was once the site where some of Australia’s most notorious criminals were imprisoned. The city’s Victorian architecture juxtaposed with towering skyscrapers blends the past and present perfectly.

Melbourne offers its visitors an ever-changing retail industry, various eclectic bars, and an atmosphere of cultural diversity. The city also plays host to some of the country’s most iconic events: the Australian Open, the Melbourne Cup, Melbourne Fashion Week, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival just to name a few. This exciting city would never offer a dull moment, and if you cruise from Melbourne, you will surely start your holiday with a bang!

Brisbane: A city full of life

See the wide open spaces, chat with the friendly locals, and enjoy the lively atmosphere all under the Queensland sun. Brisbane has plenty to offer. Sip a coffee from one of the many excellent cafés while you take a stroll down the South Bank. Or indulge in some retail therapy and rejoice in some of the best shopping in Australia.

Head over to Streets Beach to cool off in the clear blue waters. It’s the only Australian beach located right in the middle of a city. The port in Brisbane acts as a gateway, offering local cruises around the Australian coast and to New Zealand as well as Asian voyages to the Philippines, Japan, and China.

Perth (Fremantle): Australia’s western port

Just 30 minutes outside of Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is the port city of Fremantle. The city will not disappoint regardless of if you’re there a few days before your cruise’s departure or if it’s a short stopover.

Fremantle boasts a unique vibe due to its hordes of alternative and arty locals. Cappuccino Strip, stretching from South Terrace and Wray Avenue, is the place to be if you’re searching for an eclectic mix of dining and entertainment options. This neighbourhood is known for the best cafés and microbreweries in the state.

If you make the short trip to Perth, you will discover a city that blends modern art and nature. Perth is a beautiful city with one of the world’s largest city parks. You can also learn about Aboriginal history by wandering along the bushland trails and through urban villages.
