With Australia Day falling on a Sunday in 2020, it's oh-so-tempting to treat yourself to a three-day long weekend (with Monday being a public holiday) or using it as the perfect excuse for a holiday with one less day's annual leave needing to be taken.

We've found a bunch of cruises, ranging from three to nine days that are definitely a unique way to explore Australia's beautiful coastline and nearby South Pacific islanes.

Considering you'll get all your accommodation, meals and entertainment sorted, all over a public holiday, we thing these are an absolute steal.

Happy Australia Day!
