Accidents in Australia’s Ports

Few countries in the world have more cruise ports than Australia. With more than 16,000 miles of coastline, pristine beaches, and world-renowned cities like Sydney and Melbourne, it isn’t hard to see why so many cruise passengers choose to visit each year. Regardless of where you want to go in Australia, or if you want to see as much of the country as possible, you can find a cruise that allows you to achieve your travel goals.

Cruise Destinations in Australia and Departure Points in the U.S.

While Australia has more than 100 cruise ports along its coasts, some of the most popular cruise destinations in the country include:

  • Adelaide
  • Airlie Beach
  • Brisbane
  • Busselton
  • Cairns
  • Darwin
  • Hobart
  • Melbourne
  • Moreton Island
  • Newcastle
  • Perth
  • Sydney

Some of Australia’s other port locations are Albany, Broome, Cooktown, Cowes, Diamond Island, Eden, Esperance, Fraser Island, Hamilton Island, Kubi Bay, Macquarie Island, Norfolk Island, Port Douglas, Port Hedland, Portland, Robe, and Yorkeys Knob.

While many Australian cruise passengers fly to the country to embark on tours around the country’s cities, beaches, and coral reefs, others cruise to Australia across open water. In the United States, cruises to Australia depart from cities such as:

  • Fort Lauderdale (Cunard Cruise Lines)
  • Honolulu (Celebrity Cruises)
  • New York (Cunard Cruise Lines and Princess Cruise Lines, among others)
  • Los Angeles (Princess Cruise Lines and Oceania Cruises, among others)
  • Miami (Seabourn Cruise Lines)
  • San Diego (Holland America)
  • San Francisco (Cunard Cruise Lines)

Were You (or Was a Loved One) Injured on an Australian Cruise?
