Australia Day cruises where you can celebrate at sea

Decadent Australia Day cruises that will be celebrating the country with you aboard on 26 January.

Updated

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!
