Cruise along Australia's Southern Coast. There are more cruises to other portions of Australia, but the South has its attractions. Cruises might visit Kangaroo Island, Adelaide, or Portland.
Kangaroo Island is Australia's third largest island, just off the coast from Adelaide. But its isolation makes it a haven for native marsupials that thrive free of competition from rabbits and foxes. Wildlife that you may see include Australian sea lions, penguins, koala bears, pelicans, bandicoot, wallaby, platypus, and of course kangaroos.
Adelaide is a relatively large city boasting a Mediterranean climate. Beautiful parks surround the city center and beaches are close. It is Australia's wine capital, so do some sampling. Explore historic Port Adelaide. Tour the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Portland is located between Adelaide to the west and Melbourne to the east. Highlights include beaches, botanical gardens, and whale watching. From November to May you might see a blue whale (the largest mammal on earth).
