Highlights of this cruise:
Melbourne, in Australia's state of Victoria (VIC), is home to an interesting mixture of historic Victorian architecture and breathtaking modern buildings. With a vibrant, street café culture and excellent shopping, Melbourne is also widely considered to be the dining capital of Australia, with an enormous selection of cuisine. It is a lively, exciting city with a friendly multicultural population.
Melbourne has an abundance of parks, wide roads, and boulevards and is also the cultural and sporting capital of Australia, with world class sporting facilities and an abundance of museums, galleries and theatres.
Lying directly on the shores of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne offers easy access to the many different areas including the the Victorian Alps in the east, the Grampians and Great Ocean Road in the west and the fertile river valleys of the Murray in the north, to name just a few.
Australia’s oldest and largest city was born in 1788 with the arrival of the "First Fleet" that transported 760 British convicts. Gold and sheep breeding propelled Sydney’s development; today it is the largest port in the entire South Pacific. Mark Twain called it “the wonder of the world”. James Michener wrote, “It is a thing of beauty, a fairy-tale body of water”.
The Brisbane River meanders through the heart of the city. Elegant Georgian buildings of native sandstone stand next to sleek glass towers. Brisbane is also a superbly landscaped city with jacarandas, flame trees, and bougainvilleas thriving in its semi-tropical climate. Come face to face with koalas, kangaroos and wombats on tours from this laid-back city.
