11 Day Great Southern Luxury Cruise

Includes hotels, meals, wine tasting & cruise

Australia is a land of awe-inspiring beauty and diversity. From vibrant, multicultural cities to wild landscapes where it’s just you and your thoughts for miles around, every inch of this great southern land deserves to be explored. Though we Australians rarely visit our own backyard, this 11 day tour and cruise is a chance to do just that, taking in the manmade and natural wonders of three states.

Hobart, Melbourne, Adelaide, Burnie, Barossa Valley… this last minute package is what dreams are made of. Begin with two nights at leisure in riverside Adelaide, Australia’s gourmet capital with countless nearby vineyards, restaurants, and the sensational Adelaide Central Market to explore. Enjoy a guided winery tour of the famed Barossa Valley, taking in three cellar doors followed by a light lunch. From Adelaide, climb aboard the glamorous CMV ‘Vasco da Gama’ cruise ship for your eight night Adelaide to Hobart return cruise. Along the way, stop to experience the cultural melting pot of Melbourne, the surprisingly creative port city of Burnie, and the historic southern capital of Hobart. With ample free time at leisure, this journey can be whatever you want it to be.

With two nights 4-star hotel accommodation, an eight night CMV cruise with breakfast, lunch and dinner onboard; and a guided winery tour of the Barossa, this is a trip worth raising a glass to!
