East Coast Dream Cruise

  • Sail the beautiful East Coast of Australia
  • Stay a night in Sydney or Brisbane
Includes Domestic Flight

There’s nothing quite like a cruise. The sun on your skin and the wind in your hair, the endless blue horizon stretching out before you, the wealth of restaurants and bars just waiting to be explored, and plenty of time for well-earned rest and relaxation… it’s a dream holiday option worth embarking on.

Experience the thrill of an ocean cruise and explore the cities of Sydney or Brisbane (depending on the option chosen) on this seven day cruise and escape package. Take in the iconic cities of Newcastle, Brisbane, Mooloolaba and Gladstone; indulge aboard the 4.5-star Explorer Dream cruise; try one of the 14 onboard restaurants; or relax by the pool and water slide.

Package includes a five-night sailing of Australia’s subtropical east coast, one night in a 4-star hotel, 15 meals, a one-way domestic flight and so much more!
