This 8-day cruise takes you from Sydney to Burnie and Hobart aboard the bountiful Norwegian Jewel.

Your trip to Australia begins in Sydney, the nation’s largest city and one of the planet’s most diverse cities. Spend a few days here to see the iconic sights like the Harbour Bridge and unforgettable Sydney Opera House. However, your stay in Sydney isn’t limited to the tourist sites. You can take a hike in the nearby Blue Mountains or say “G’day” to kangaroos, koalas, and other marsupials at the Taronga Zoo. Immerse yourself in the nightlife by dining in some of the world’s great restaurants or dancing in the country’s most electric clubs. Relax on famous Bondi Beach and work on your tan. The opportunities in Sydney are endless.

After getting acquainted with Sydney, board the Norwegian Jewel and enjoy its many comforts as you cruise south for Tasmania. With over 16 dining options, 15 bars and nightclubs, a casino, pool, spa and theatre shows, you’ll find plenty of fun onboard. Your first stop is Burnie on Tasmania’s northern coast. This industrial city was dismissed in the past, but its vibrant creative present has made it known as the “City of Makers.” Visit the Makers’ Workshop and try your hand at making paper to get a taste for the craftsmanship of the locals before checking out the Little Penguin Observation Centre to see penguins come ashore in the evening.

Cruise to the south of the island to visit Hobart, the endpoint of the famous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. This harbour town is in the midst of cultural resurgence. Stroll through Salamanca Place or Battery Point to get a taste for its historical highlights and then visit the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens to see an amazing collection of flora, including cool-temperature trees from the 19th century. Then indulge in the city's booming craft beer pubs or café culture. Be sure to head out of the city limits to Kunahyi or Mount Wellington, which towers over the city and offers endless opportunity for biking or bushwalking. Then return to Sydney onboard the Norwegian Jewel.
