With a multitude of options, those seeking to take a cruise from Sydney will be able to explore all the best that Australia has to offer, as well as places that lie within easy reach of this continent.

The coast of Queensland

The beauty of Australia is that a good deal of its territory lies within the semi and fully tropical zones that circle the central parts of the globe. No matter when you visit the Land Down Under, you can hop on family friendly cruises from Sydney and get away to a balmy world where the sun always shines strongly within a matter of days.

When embarking on this route, be sure to hit up Brisbane, which is this state’s most cosmopolitan city, Cairns, which is chock full of adventure activities, and the Whitsundays, which is a constant contender for the honor of having one of the world’s most stunning beaches.

Heading to Australia in the summer months, and want to see one of this nation’s most captivating temperate environments? If so, planning a cruise to the island state of Tasmania will satisfy this curiosity, as its scenery and attractions will live up to the high expectations that you might have for this place.

Hobart offers a charming city at the base of sentry-like mountains, while the Salamanca Market offers a great place to pick up souvenirs, and Port Arthur hails back to Australia’s early days as a penal colony; all of these and other activities will make your cruise to Tasmania an exciting adventure that you and the kids will talk about for a long time to come.

South Pacific tropical islands such as Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu

When one thinks of a cruise, they often picture a big boat taking them away to a tropical paradise, complete with flawless white sand beaches and swaying palms. With the picture perfect atolls and isles of the South Pacific within only a few days sail from Sydney, you can enjoy some of the world’s best snorkeling waters in spots like Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia.

What’s more, the unique Polynesian culture that can be found here will enrich and entertain you and your children, making an already solid case for a South Pacific cruise leaving from Sydney even more attractive.
