Cruise Perth to Sydney over the Top End 2025

For us Mildrovers who for all their travel adventures think there’s no place like home, here’s a cruise that keeps you Australia adjacent for the whole trip and includes some spectacular stops you’d probably never see otherwise.

Mycruises have put together a 19 Night fly, stay & cruise Holiday with $2500 of bonus value including a city stay. Departing in May next year, on board Crown Princess, the cruise goes the long way round, sailing North from Fremantle in May 2025 after a two night stay to make the most of the always photogenic and thoroughly entertaining Perth.

An urban oasis amongst the boundless nature of Western Australia, Perth provides a pleasant change in pace.

Explore 990 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens at Kings Park, relax in the sun at Cottesloe Beach and meet the friendly quokkas at Rottnest Island.

Once you’re on your way, first stop is Geraldton. Gorgeous windswept beaches, leaning trees, wildflowers and a friendly atmosphere define this sunny resort town.

It is a prime destination for water sports, and boating, sailing and fishing are part of Geraldton’s maritime heritage.

Next it’s on to Broome, with humble beginnings as a pearling town, it’s the gateway to the incredible wilderness of the Kimberly.

During your stay, don’t miss a camel ride along Cable Beach, a historic pearl farm tour or the incredible dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point.

On to Yampi Sound, nestled between King Sound and Collier Bay, brimming with astounding natural wonders. Admire clear blue waters and magical Kimberley landscapes while keeping an eye out for the resident bottlenose dolphins.

Then the Kimberley Coast, sparse wilderness, shaped by incredible gorges, impeccable coastline, rugged ranges and unique wildlife. Pass by Windjana Gorge National Park, which is home to dramatic limestone cliffs and warm pools where freshwater crocodiles gather.

Then it’s the gateway to Australia’s Top End, Darwin. As the only Australian capital with a tropical climate, Darwin enjoys a more laidback vibe.

During your stay, get up close to the crocodiles at Crocosaurus Cove, chill out in the Wave Lagoon and learn about Darwin’s World War 2 history at the Defence of Darwin Experience.

Use to be Far North Queensland, now the Tropical North, Cairns is the next city to explore. Cairns is a must-visit for nature lovers. Catch the scenic railway to Kuranda, a colourful village filled with markets, wildlife, and Aboriginal cultural experiences.

Back in the city, take a dip in the Cairns Lagoon or bring out your adventurous side at Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome.

Willis Island Weather Monitoring Station

Then it’s on to the white sandy islands, turquoise waters, and tranquillity of Willis Island, the only permanently inhabited island in the Coral Sea Islands Territory. It’s an external territory of Australia, and home to an Australian Bureau of Meteorology weather station, usually staffed by four weather observers.

Queensland’s capital, Brisbane, invites a walk down Southbank, a ferry up the river or book a shore excursion to Australia Zoo! Founded by Australian Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin’s family you can get up close with kangaroo’s, koalas and many other interesting animals.
