Cruises from Sydney

It’s no surprise that Sydney is the major hub for cruising out of Australia, with its breathtaking harbour, white sandy beaches and amazing weather all year round, Sydney draws in people all year round. But if you want that little breakaway or all that Sydney has to offer isn’t enough, there are some great cruising options out of Sydney.

It’s about the journey, not the destination. Why can’t it be both? P&O has some beautiful locations leaving out of Sydney. Whether, it be domestic getaways to the port city of Hobart in Tasmania, boasting the cleanest air in the world or cruising up to the UNESCO world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. If warmer vacations are your thing, outside of Australia there are the Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, and Fiji.

Domestic Getaways

Sometimes we can spare the time for a longer getaway or we just want to Australia and why wouldn’t you, when Australia has a little bit of everything. There are great weekend trips for the short little sea break escapes.

If a wildlife adventure is your style South Australian escapes such from Kangaroo Island’s furry encounters to Port Lincoln’s lets you swim with some of cutest Sea Lions. In Queensland, dive the shipwrecks off Moreton Island or go whale spotting off the coast of Mooloolaba Beach and when you’re done, grab a drink and layout on some of the most spectacular beaches in the world.

There are many more amazing stops you can make including Melbourne and cities across beautiful Tasmania, but if you don’t care where you go there is also, a variety of P&O themed Sea Break cruises, such as comedy cruises, battle it out in a State of Origin cruise or dine like kings during our food and wine cruises.

Sustainable Island Escapes

P&O has been cruising to the South Pacific for over 85 years, for us to be cruising that long we are focused on building strong relationships with our Pacific Island partners. Working to minimalise the tourism impact for both locals and guests alike. We focus on spreading our guests out so there’s enough room for everyone to enjoy their little piece of paradise. Whether that means sitting around in an exclusive adults-only resort or ziplining through a forest to riding a Zodiak to Duck Island.

Whatever kind of break you’re after we’ve got you covered, so book your cruise out of Sydney today.
