Show / hide full Day by Day Itinerary
Your magical adventure begins with a flight from your homeport to the city of Melbourne. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel in the eastern end of Melbourne’s vibrant city centre.
Tonight, walk over to the Princess Theatre and enjoy Part One of the Harry Potter & the Cursed Child play. The show commences at 7.30pm – enjoy this wonderful event from excellent seats in the beautiful Princess Theatre.
❱ Hotel stay: Melbourne (2 nights)
Today is a free day for you to enjoy a wonderful array of activities available to you in this vibrant city. Melbourne’s famous trams are just a few steps away from your hotel. Whether you wish to shop or take in the sights, there are so many options available for you to choose from!
At 7.30pm this evening, head back to the Princess Theatre and enjoy the second (and final) part of the Harry Potter & the Cursed Child play at the Princess Theatre.
Early afternoon, we board our transfer to Station Pier in Port Melbourne to board Cunard Line’s majestic Queen Elizabeth. The ship has a capacity for 2,000 guests and was christened by the Queen in 2010, making her the youngest ship in the fleet.
The ship’s elegant decor typifies the heyday of Hollywood glamour & style. The Queen Elizabeth offers wide open deck spaces as well as the Garden Lounge, Games Deck and even a large conservatory based on the famous Kew Gardens. A number of bars & restaurants and entertainment each night helps make your cruise the wonderful experience the Queen is renowned for.
We sail out of Melbourne at 6pm and travel south towards Tasmania. Whilst onboard, you will be pampered with great meals prepared by the excellent onboard chefs using only the finest ingredients.
❱ Ocean cruise: Queen Elizabeth (6 nights)
Sitting on a beautiful stretch of Tasmania’s North West Coast, port city Burnie may have industrial roots, but it has since reinvented itself as a creative enclave and the state’s fourth largest city.
With about 40 per cent of Tasmania designated as a World Heritage Area of national parks and reserves, you can enjoy a wide range of wilderness experiences available from this laid-back market town.
Enjoy a full day at sea to take advantage of the many activities available onboard the Queen Elizabeth.
Wave goodbye to any preconceptions you may have of Australia, as you say hello to wonderful Hobart on the southeastern coast of Tasmania. Revel in the capital’s splendid heritage, scenery and culture. Hobart has a distinctly European look and feel, and a unique local character. Capital of Australia’s Island State, with Mt. Wellington as its backdrop, it has plenty to offer the adventurous and the inquisitive.
After Sydney, Hobart is the second-oldest capital city in the country, having been established in 1804 as a penal colony. Its location in the estuary of Tasmania’s Derwent River means it is sheltered and calm, although its southern latitude means it often experiences cooler climates than on mainland Australia.
Hobart may be a small city, but it is tightly packed with history, culture, art and an emerging food scene that is quickly gaining national attention. It is also the home port for Australian and French Antarctic activities, with nearly 2,000 tons of cargo leaving the port for Antarctica each year.
One of the first sights that will greet Hobart cruise passengers is Mount Wellington, the city’s natural backdrop and an incredible viewpoint to see Hobart from a bird’s-eye perspective. The mountain towers over 4,000 feet above the harbour its peak dusted in snow in winter and covered in lush greenery for the rest of the year. Shuttle buses regularly make the 25-minute journey from the centre of Hobart to Mount Wellington.
The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens offer visitors 14 hectares of landscaped natural beauty, made up of flora from all over the world. It is a tranquil escape from the city, and ideal for a romantic stroll or some quiet reflection.
Get a feel for Hobart’s European influences at Battery Point, where Georgian and Victorian architecture dominate the historic streets. There are plenty of cafés and boutiques to explore, but to learn more about the area’s history and culture, take a walking tour of Battery Point. Led by a local guide, these tours allow visitors to take in the picturesque surroundings of the historic precinct while learning about its inhabitants and heritage.
The Museum of Old and New Art, or the MONA, is located on the grounds of the Moorilla Winery in Hobart, and is home to over 400 works of art from founder David Walsh’s private collection. As a highly acclaimed attraction in a small city, Hobart’s MONA has been likened to Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum.
Enjoy another day at sea to take advantage of the many activities available onboard as the ship sails around the coast towards South Australia.
The third-largest Australian island boasts incredible natural beauty, with unspoiled pristine beaches and a truly unique opportunity to see an amazing range of animals up-close in their local habitat.
As one would expect, there’s a healthy kangaroo presence, along with wallabies, koalas, seals, sea lions and goannas, the placid and unassuming lizards that grow up to a metre long.
Sadly, today marks the end of your magical adventure. Arrive in Adelaide this morning and disembark the Queen Elizabeth after breakfast.
Adelaide travellers will be transferred to their home (within the metro area only) whilst interstate travellers will be transferred to the airport in time for their onward flight.
