If you don’t want to be at sea for days on end, enjoy a short break cruise within Australia. Whether it’s a weekend away or a week-long break on the high seas, it’s the perfect option for those who have limited time and only a small window of opportunity to get away. Short cruises are typically considered to be less than seven days long, but can range anywhere from as little as two days. With short cruises departing from capital cities around Australia, jump on at a port close to home to make this the easiest holiday you’ve ever had. There’s no reason why you can’t have a quick adventure or relaxing getaway and then zip back in time for work on Monday.
If the beauty of Queensland draws you, set sail for the beautiful beaches, resorts and clear waters of the Whitsunday Islands. Snorkel with magnificent marine life along the Great Barrier Reef, hear the fine white sand squelch beneath your feet at Whitehaven Beach, and spend a day soaking up the sights, shops and restaurants of bustling Airlie Beach. Otherwise, take a cruise from Fremantle in Perth to the food and wine delights of Margaret River, or cruise from Brisbane to beautiful Cairns in Tropical North Queensland. From new destinations such as Mooloolaba to old favourites such as Moreton Island, there’s so much to discover.
If you like the idea of exploring Australia’s capital cities, there are quick return cruises from many capital cities that are a great way to get out on the water and get a taste of the cruising life. A cruise from Brisbane to Sydney, or a return cruise from Adelaide be your perfect match. Spend a day or two exploring the fine dining, fabulous shopping and entertainment of Sydney, before sailing out of sparkling Sydney Harbour and trailing the coast to cosmopolitan Melbourne. You could also fit in a quick short break cruise to the Pacific Islands on a seven day cruise from the east coast of Australia.
