Itinerary for Immersive Australian Adventure

Day 1 - Fly UK to Sydney

Day 2 - Fly UK to Sydney

Day 3 - Enjoy Sydney

Day 4 - Enjoy Sydney

Day 5 - Embark Azamara Quest in Sydney

Head Down Under to the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia, the one and only Sydney. With a sunny attitude and a climate to match, Sydney is a vibrant place that combines the best of the beach, with the convenience of the city. Your first stop should be the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Sydney Opera House. Snap a picture of this iconic building that is a prominent feature of Sydney’s famous skyline for the folks back home. Get out and explore the streets to shop, dine, and view spectacular architecture and heritage buildings including Parliament House, Sydney Town Hall, and the Australian Museum.

Day 6 - At Sea

Day 7 - Melbourne

Melbourne has the honor of being “the world’s most livable city” not to mention “Australia’s cultural capital”, a UNESCO City of Literature, the hub of the country’s film and television industry, and the unquestioned sporting capital of Australia. But don’t mistake Melbourne for a relentless overachiever, it’s got a laid-back and easy vibe that will leave you wanting more.

Day 8 - Portland, Victoria, Australia

Known as Victoria’s first European settlement, Portland is so much more than its heritage. Full of colonial history, beautiful beaches, and abundant wildlife, you'll want to discover this thriving seaside city yourself. Take a walk along Portland’s picturesque waterfront to view the city's original architecture, including buildings that date back as early as 1845. Fancy yourself a history buff? Delve into Portland's past with a variety of local exhibits that offer everything from maritime and whaling history to an entire museum dedicated to the iconic Australian sheepdog, the Kelpie.

Day 9 - At Sea

Day 10 - Kangaroo Island

You’ll find more than just kangaroos on Kangaroo Island. There are wallabies and koalas, not to mention platypus, and ring-tailed possums. And at Seal Bay Conservation Park, you can sit just a few yards from rare and magnificent sea lions, while whales play in the water and penguins and pelicans parade along the beach. Try to spy bandicoots, birds, and 45 plant species found nowhere else on earth. And you’ll see more sheep than people—at a ratio of about 136 to one. And, yes, there are kangaroos.

Day 11 - Adelaide

Adelaide, to some, is the civilized part of Australia. Pretty and leafy, with spacious green parklands, history buffs can download several walking tours around Victoria Square. Foodies will relish the vibrant culinary scene here. And everyone will be fascinated with the Aboriginal Culture Gallery at the South Australian Museum with an amazing collection of boomerangs, grouped according to purpose - hunting, fighting, ceremony. Wander through the glass houses in The Botanic Gardens and see everything from endangered plants to noisy pitta birds to water lilies that only open at night. Or visit the Cleland Wildlife Park where you can hold a koala (cute) or a snake (scary).

Day 12 - At Sea

Day 13 - At Sea

Day 14 - Esperance, Western Australia

Off the coast of Esperance in Western Australia whales swim right up to paddle boarders—just another day in this lovely remote town on the beautiful Bay of Isles. Framed by aquamarine waters and pristine white beaches, Esperance has an easygoing vibe that doesn’t exist in busier ports—you’re more likely to see a crowd of fur seals here than people. Trampers—that’s the Aussie term for hikers—will find one of the most breathtaking walks in all of Australia near here, the Cape Le Grand Coastal Trail. Covering nine miles of incredible beaches and turquoise coves, your efforts will be rewarded with unbelievable views.

Day 15 - Albany, Australia

European explorers fell in love with Albany in the 17th century and we’re betting you’ll do the same. The beauty of its rugged coastline befits its dramatic whaling, convict and settler history, and the city retells it in exceptional ways.

Day 16 - Margaret River, Australia

“The capital of the Margaret River region.” “The gateway to Margaret River wine country.” “The events capital of Western Australia.” Whatever you want to call it, “the coastal playground” of Busselton sure does have a lot of monikers—and even more things to do. The adventures begin the moment you step off the ship, as we dock next to the famed Busselton Jetty, the longest wooden pier in the world. From here you can walk to the beach and waterfront district, where there are more than enough water sports, shops, restaurants, cafés, and bars to entertain you for the rest of your stay in Busselton.

Day 17 - Fremantle

Perth, once an Australian backwater, is now at the vanguard of cool, with cutting-edge art, miles of stunning beaches, and a culture that’s both relaxed and impatient for the future. Situated beside the Swan River, Perth is a magical place to explore. Start in Kings Park on Mount Eliza for the best views and an enchanting treetop walk. To indulge in some retail therapy, visit the high-end fashion boutiques of King Street. Art lovers will want to get acquainted with the center of Perth's art scene—the Art Gallery of Western Australia which features the best collection of Aboriginal art in the country.

Laura you are the best

this is the second time I have been with Scotland's Cruise Centre in 6 months and each time we booked it was a pleasure we were made to feel that we were important Laura she went out of her way to help she was perfect and one of the most polite people I have ever dealt with if she was employed with me I would give her a step up and a rise for Laura sells the cruise to you and as we were with her before she could bring up our details and made it so easy to book our holiday
well done Laura you are Scotland's cruise center never let her go
