Australia Small Ship Cruises

Connect with an Adventure Specialist

Australia is the smallest continent and yet the largest island in the world. The coastline of Australia covers 37,119 miles, making it prime for small ship cruising with AdventureSmith Explorations. Australia small ships are the best way to actively explore nature, culture and diversity up close and in style.

Our Australia expedition cruises take you to Great Barrier Reef, a 1,400-mile strip of coral that covers a total area of 133,000 square miles; the Kimberley, one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers famed for its canyons and freshwater swimming holes; the “Top End” culture-rich Arnhem Land; and the locals’ favorite island of Tasmania. We are Australia small ship cruise specialists and we will match you to the right cruise at the best price.

Why Choose an Australia Small Ship Cruise

AdventureSmith’s Australia small ship cruise routes visit far-flung locales to dive deep into local culture, vast landscapes and the unique wildlife that makes Australia famous. Whether you choose to cruise the northern reaches of the Great Barrier Reef to the “Top End” near Cape York and Arnhem Land, along northern Australia into the Kimberley region, or down to “Tassie” (as the locals like to call the island of Tasmania), we have a cruise itinerary to show you true Australia adventure.

Small ship cruises, also known as Australia expedition cruises, visit remote beaches, outback wilderness, and reef locations not accessible to day tours or larger ships. Actively explore away from the ship on guided activities such as hiking, sea kayaking, scuba diving and small craft excursions. Small ship cruises to Australia highlight the region’s nature, history and culture in an intimate setting, away from tourist crowds. We have the largest selection of Australia small ship cruises and expedition cruises available.
