Cruise the Australian Coast and Enjoy the Vacation of Your Dreams

Monday, January 22, 2018

As far as vacationing goes, cruising is probably the best, most magical experience you can have. Go to Australia, and you’re practically guaranteed an unforgettable vacation full of adventure and great moments full of fun. But which places to visit when the continent is surrounded by water and is basically just one giant coastline? Well, we’re here to tell you about some of the best destinations and interesting places that you can visit if you want to enjoy a fun, relaxing cruise.

Queensland


Brisbane, Queensland

The many islands of the Sunshine State are perfect for all the fans of wildlife and water sports, or just for those who want to pause, take a break, and relax on one of the many sandy beaches. Queensland also has more than 200 national parks, so depending on the cruise you pick, you might have time to really indulge and explore the beautiful nature of this state. The seabird colonies on the Willis Island are a good spot for those who wish to observe wildlife, or perhaps the shores of Moreton’s Island, where you will get to spot dolphins and whales and get the chance to enjoy one of the best swimming and diving spots. 

If you prefer a more fast-paced environment, then definitely check out Brisbane. It offers great entertainment with its multiple bars and restaurants, but culture fans will find plenty of museums to enjoy as well. We recommend the Gallery of Modern Art. More on the south lies the Gold Coast, famous for its colorful theme parks and beach parties, so if you’re craving some urban fun, go there. Queensland is also the home of five of eleven Australia’s World Natural Heritages, and one of the Wonders of the World – the Great Barrier Reef. 

The Great Barrier Reef


Heart Reef, The Great Barrier Reef

So beautiful, so grand, and so enchantingly interesting that it deserves a whole mention of its own, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living organism on the planet. Big enough to be noticed from space, it has an ecosystem of its own that’s full of varied fish, plants, and other sea life. This is definitely a must-see destination, so try to find a cruise that covers it in depth. If you’re frugal and want to get the best bang for your buck, you can keep an eye out on the best cruise deals for 2018 so you could snag a spot on a cruiser and see this magical wonder. We recommend that you go diving while visiting the Great Barrier Reef if you really want to get to know it. While it’s utterly impressive from above the water, the true charm and uniqueness lie beneath the waves; it’s an explosion of color and life and it deserves to be appreciated fully. 

Tasmania


Tasmania

With the nickname “Island of Inspiration,” you can already tell that Tasmania is going to be something special. From azure lakes to rainforests and tall mountains, this is a land that’s full of untouched nature and gorgeous sights. However, if you’re looking for a more cultural experience, the capital of Tasmania, Hobart, is the place where you want to be. The bustling Salamanca Market, the numerous coffee shops and restaurants, and the great Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is the largest one in the country, and features great works of art that date back to ancient Egypt and all the way to the modern times. 

Going on a cruise is the best way to explore a place because it allows you the opportunity to both relax and go on adventures. Treat yourself to an Australian cruise and you’re bound to come home with interesting stories to tell.
