Australia and New Zealand’s rugged beauty has attracted visitors for centuries. And P&O Cruises has had a long association with this part of the world, with millions of ‘10 pound Poms’ taking cruises to Australia on our ships to start a new life down under in the middle of the last century. In modern times, thousands still take Australian cruises and New Zealand cruises not to start a new life, but to explore the stunning scenery that attracted people a generation before.
Away from the cities, Australia boasts stunning countryside. Well known for the Outback, it’s a misconception to think of this huge area as a sandy wasteland. Whilst stunning sand dunes and desert do make up part of the Outback, you’ll also find rich, fertile areas of mountains, planes and even rain forest from our Australia cruises.
A New Zealand cruise is equally stunning, and the country is rightly justified as many people’s dream destination. The great diversity and power of nature is truly on show here. Whether you choose to explore Australia, New Zealand or both, this part of the world will leave you amazed and inspired.
