Australia Cruise Seasons

Posted June 12th, 2012

Wanting to go on a cruise across the ditch? Find out the different travel seasons to cruise around Australia...

High Season: December - April

The pros and cons of sailing in season: While larger ship and Barrier Reef cruises are available year round, the Speciality cruises are seasonal. Tasmanian cruises operate in the Southern summer (November to March) while Top End cruises operate in the winter months (April to October). It really depends on what you are after, as the weather varies so much in Australia. If the Queensland heat is too much for you, perhaps consider a winter cruise.

Low/Shoulder Season: June - August

The pros and cons of sailing off season: Australia’s winter months are the quietest for cruising, but it is during this time that you can find some great bargains and experience some of the places you wouldn’t consider going to during the hotter months.
