Highlights of this cruise:
The whole world's in love with Sydney. It's stylish, it's sophisticated, it's home to some of the friendliest people on the planet. And yes, a few koalas, if you know where to look. What's not to love? This gateway to the Outback has it all: endless outdoor adventure around the harbor or in spots like the Blue Mountains. Golden sandy beaches named Bondi, Bilgola and Coogee (which are not only beautiful, but also fun to say). A bustling art and entertainment scene. Countless museums, galleries and world-class restaurants where the dishes go way beyond the local Vegemite.
Sitting pretty in the southeast corner of Australia is the very multi-dimensional Melbourne. Whether you're into football or funky fashion, local pubs or chichi cafes, out there or traditional architecture - this epicenter of everything truly has it all. Including a rich and notorious past. You'll find traces of it all over, from the Old Melbourne Gaol (one of the many Australian jails) to its many museums. Today it's considered one of the world's most livable cities. So pack accordingly.
Burnie is a lively, attractive port city on the northwest coast of Tasmania, originally settled in 1827 as Emu Bay. With its broad beaches and rising hills, Burnie is as physically attractive as it is culturally interesting. The city's architecture reflects the history of industry in this remote part of the world, starting with sheep and moving to tin and silver, and now to cargo shipping. Known for its lovely waterfalls, winding gardens and scenic vistas, Burnie is also a good place to see a penguin or a platypus.
There are few places as tranquil as the island of Tasmania. So it's no surprise that Aussies head here for a taste of laid-back island life. Over a third of the landscape is covered with national parks and wilderness World Heritage areas. It's even home to one of the world's best beaches and tons of aboriginal creatures such as the short-beaked echidna, little pygmy, and yes, the Tasmanian devil himself. And Hobart, the island's Europeanesque harbor town, is the perfect prequel to it all.
