Top 5 Australian Cruises

By Karen Cooke

What better way to see the amazing sights of this beautiful country than by indulging in a luxury cruise of Australia? Whether you want to cruise locally around one of the many stunning regions or would prefer an extravagant cruise along the Australian coast, from Cairns to Hobart or all around Australia, there are many great options to choose from.

The top 5 Australian cruises we suggest are:

1. Sydney Harbour

Glorious Sydney Harbour is full of delights for visitors and locals, and the best way to discover them is on one of the many commercial or private cruises.

There are cruises that specialise in catering to extravagant corporate functions and events like wedding receptions. Imagine hosting a private party on an opulent boat, cruising along the Sydney Harbour at night? Many of the more distinguished vessels can also provide a chef or caterers so you can thoroughly enjoy your luxury cruise holiday without worrying about mundane tasks like cooking.

For something special, Prestige Harbour Cruises are sure to impress you and your guests. They provide luxury boat hire and overnight charters as well as catering for corporate functions and weddings.

2. The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland, is world-renowned for its unmatched beauty. This is the perfect place to visit if you enjoy water-sports such as diving, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking or just relaxing on the water.

Cruising around the Reef is an ideal way to see much of this vast expanse and discover hidden inlets and deserted coves. For a luxury honeymoon or lavish vacation, a cruise on one of the exquisite Coral Princess Cruise vessels is the perfect way to relax.

3. Murray River

The diverse Murray River is another place that is best experienced by cruising it. This river meanders through eastern South Australia, southern New South Wales and northern Victoria. For a relaxing nature or historical cruise along this ancient river, Captain Cook Cruises offer a range of Australian river cruises and river-based activities.

Along with amazing scenery along the journey there are many attractions to visit while cruising along the winding Murray River. Some of these attractions include Dundee?s Wildlife Park, Monarto Zoological Park and Mannum's unique floating museum. There are even several quality golf courses along the route!

4. The Kimberley Region

When many people think of the Kimberley region they imagine a dry, hot rugged landscape - not exactly somewhere you can cruise. In fact, cruising along the Kimberley coastline is an amazing journey and is the ideal way to experience this region in total comfort.

The Kimberley Quest 2 was custom built for cruising along the Kimberley Coastline and allows passengers to learn about the region while visiting various remote places that are difficult to access via the mainland.

5. Tasmania

There are so many wondrous sights to discover in and around Tasmania and many of them can be experienced on a cruise.

Visitors to Tasmania can enjoy luxurious travel cruising direct from Sydney or Melbourne to Tasmania on the Spirit of Tasmania - a very popular option for those who want to take their vehicle with them. There are also indulgent vacation cruises from the mainland that stop at various ports around Tasmania, allowing guests to experience various cities on the Tasmanian mainland while being accommodated in onboard suites that you would expect to find in a five star resort.

For those who like leisurely river cruises multi award-winning Tamar River Cruises will take passengers on a journey of discovery along the fascinating Cataract Gorge and Launceston's magical riverfront. If you enjoy the comfort and relaxed experience of cruising, then you will love any of these top 5 Australian cruises.
