Barrier Reef Discovery Cruises: Amazing Sights off the Coast of Queensland
The Barrier Reef Discovery Cruise
As the name suggests, the Barrier Reef Discovery Cruise is all about visiting the tropics and exploring the largest coral reef in the world and other Australian wonders. Australian cruisers can enjoy an entire week of sun, sand and fun without having to leave their own country. International cruisers delight in the opportunity to see some of the most amazing parts of the smallest continent, and largest island, in the world.
P&O Australia’s Barrier Reef Discovery Cruise departs from Brisbane and lasts for a total of 7 incredible nights. It is an extremely popular cruise and regular departures take place throughout the year. This is possible thanks to the amazing tropical climate in these parts. On this cruise, the ports of call include Airlie Beach, Port Douglas, Cairns as well as Willis Island scenic cruising.
Barrier Reef Cruise
It’s easy to say that the Great Barrier Reef is the star of the show on this cruise. It may be visited and explored by diving with shore tours via the line or independently from Cairns or Airlie Beach. It is important to note that independent tours may cause you to be delayed and, if this is the case, you could miss the boat!
Other fun things to do and see, also available via the cruise line’s approved shore tours, are mountain biking in Port Douglas and trips to the Daintree rainforest. In the Whitsundays you can enjoy some sea kayaking or sailing while Cairns is home to the Kuranda Village and the Skyrail.
