Why cruise Australia & New Zealand with Princess ?

#1 Cruise Line in Australia & New Zealand

Sail to destinations around the Australian continent. Explore the Māori culture in New Zealand, visit the isle of Tasmania or discover South Pacific gems like Fiji and Tahiti (Papeete). Visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru National Park’s iconic Ayers Rock on our Australian Outback or Ultimate Australia cruisetour itineraries, which combine a multi-night land tour with a cruise. You’ll also visit cities like Sydney, Darwin and Cairns.

Natural Wonders & Landscapes

Take in the beauty of what locals call “Godzone” (God’s own country) on a hike into Tauranga’s Wai-O-Tapu thermal valley. See the awe-inspiring Fiordland National Park. Discover the Blue Mountains, a UNESCO site on the outskirts of Sydney. Embrace outdoors adventures and refreshing breezes along coastlines & beaches like nowhere else in the world. Visit Rangitoto in New Zealand to behold Auckland’s largest and youngest volcano.

Cultural Immersion

Immerse yourself in all things “Kiwi” on board and on shore with our Across the Ditch program on every New Zealand cruise. Experience authentic Māori culture, art and cuisine. Take a trip to Tamaki Māori Village where you can experience a Māori concert and hāngī with traditional singing, dancing and food. Pursue your passion for wine with a visit to Yarra Valley in Melbourne or Margaret River in Western Australia, known as two of Australia’s premier wine regions. Or, try some of the world’s most well-known varietals in New Zealand’s Marlborough region.

Unique & Iconic Wildlife

Encounter unique animals and plants at Brisbane’s Australia Zoo, Melbourne’s Healesville Sanctuary, Sydney’s Featherdale Wildlife Park and the Perth Zoo. Meet more animals at Bonorong Sanctuary, one of the largest kangaroo and wallaby free-range refuges with Tasmanian devils, wombats, kookaburras and koalas. Take a shore excursion to spot some of New Zealand’s most rare native wildlife including the tuatara lizard, little spotted kiwi, saddleback and hihi birds, and the giant weta insect — or for a trip to Phillip Island to witness Australia’s adorable penguins.

Magical Landscapes

Uncover the diverse ecosystem of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and book a cruisetour to get rugged in the outback exploring Uluru. See fiction come to life on a Lord of the Rings tour in New Zealand to visit Hobbiton for a stroll through the rolling hills, lush green pastures, hobbit holes and other iconic locations of Middle Earth. And Fiordland National Park is a must-see when sailing New Zealand — which is why it’s been named a cruise wonder of the world by Condé Nast Traveller.
