TAKE A VOYAGE TO THE LAND DOWN UNDER

Welcome to the land of koalas, kangaroos, and platypuses, where the wildlife is as spectacularly different as the scenery. Whether it’s the Great Barrier Reef, the great outback, or the Great Ocean Road, Australia features some of the most incredible wonders in nature.

Join Azamara Club Cruises® as we take you from the northern reaches of Darwin to the southern sights of Tasmania, with lots of stops in between—including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Cairns—plus plenty of time for eco-adventures, underwater exploring, hiking through rainforests, and of course, sampling some award-winning wines throughout the journey. Fair dinkum!
