Sydney, Australia – Considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney offers just about anything—from beaches and wineries to stunning landmarks and world-class shopping. Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium’s underwater walkways, or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower.
Newcastle, Australia - Settled in 1801 as a colony for convicts sentenced to dig for coal, the area’s celebration of the surfing lifestyle and a no worries attitude make it one of the most laid-back places in the developed world. A diversity of natural attractions offers many opportunities for exploration. You can also sip cocktails at a harborside restaurant, take in some live music at a local pub, follow a bushwalk trail at Blackbutt Reserve to see koalas, kangaroos, wombats and native birds.
Airlie Beach, Queensland, Australia - One of the best departure points for excursions to the Great Barrier Reef, Airlie Beach is extremely popular with backpackers, yachtsmen and other lovers of the tropical lifestyle. Sailing among the calm, protected waters of the Witsunday Islands is a must-do on the wish lists of many travelers. Charming shops, exhilarating skydives over the shoreline, and everything in between is going to make this a memorable visit.
Cairns, Australia – Cairns is located in tropical North Queensland. To the north, west, and south, it is surrounded by lush, tropical rainforest. And to the east lies the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef. Apart from being the gateway to magnificent natural attractions, this waterfront city offers an abundance of possibilities, including the opportunity to safely spot crocs.
Port Douglas, Australia – The once-sleepy, now-bustling seaside village of Port Douglas will be your hub to the Great Barrier Reef, home to some 1,500 species of fish, 5,000 species of mollusk and 400 species of coral for your exploration. During your Cruisetour, you’ll enjoy a full day of marine adventure with opportunities to swim, snorkel, dive or view the reef from an underwater observatory.
Willis Island, Australia – Cruise past Willis Island, Australia, aboard Celebrity Cruises. See the 19-acre island with its weather-monitoring station and population of albatross, terns, sea turles and more.
Brisbane, Australia – In the heart of Queensland, Brisbane’s cultural sophistication belies its proximity to the Australian wilderness. No matter what your outdoor pleasure, Brisbane offers a diversity of possibilities. Cuddle with koalas at Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo, take a trip out to Moreton Bay to feed wild dolphins, or trek to the top of Mt. Kcoot-tha Lookout to take it all in.
