Cruises from Sydney

So, the next questions are: Where do you want to go? What do you want to see? What do you want to taste? What do you want to experience? You can sail to so many dreamy destinations from Australia’s largest city. Set sail from the sun-kissed city of Sydney and make your way to the spectacular metropolis of Singapore. Or hop on a cruise ship cutting through the Pacific Ocean until you reach the pristine islands of tropical Hawaii. But if you’re more keen on staying closer to home, we also offer quick getaways for a spontaneous three- or four-day adventure.

When it comes to cruises from Sydney, some of the most sought-after international destinations are in the South Pacific and New Zealand. If you’re in search of an adventure to the islands in the South Pacific, consider cruising to Lifou, Mare, Noumea, or one of the many gorgeous islands just waiting to be explored. Hang out on the picturesque beaches while sipping a cocktail or venture into the wilderness and spot some of the islands’ unique wildlife.

Vanuatu, an archipelago of more than 80 lovely islands, features secluded beaches and an ancient culture that will impress cruisers. Receive a gracious welcome from the locals of New Caledonia before you explore the surrounding lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage site. If you’re holidaying in Fiji, hike around the “Garden Island” of Taveuni.

To the south, the island of Tasmania is a paradise rich in heritage, history, and natural beauty. Freycinet National Park, Lake St. Clair, and Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park will astound nature lovers. If you’re interested in history, world heritage sites like Port Arthur and Woolmers Estate will surely amaze you. If you make your way to New Zealand after sailing across the Tasman Sea, the sprawling national parks, ancient rock formations, and the unique culture and cuisine of the Maori will keep you amazed.
