When is the best time to visit Australia & New Zealand?

The best time to take a cruise holiday to Australia & New Zealand depends on the region you want to explore and the specific experiences you’re seeking.

In Australia, the peak tourist season is during the southern hemisphere’s summer, from December to February. This is an excellent time to explore popular destinations like Sydney, Melbourne, and the Great Barrier Reef, with warm weather and plenty of outdoor activities. However, keep in mind that this period can be crowded and more expensive. If you prefer milder weather and fewer crowds, consider visiting during the shoulder seasons of spring (September to November) and autumn (March to May).

In New Zealand, the best time to visit is during the Southern Hemisphere’s summer, which occurs from December to February. This is when you can enjoy pleasant temperatures, vibrant landscapes, and a wide range of outdoor activities, including hiking and water sports. If you’re a winter sports enthusiast, New Zealand’s ski season runs from June to August, making it an excellent time to visit for snow sports.

It’s also essential to consider factors like local holidays, festivals and peak tourist seasons. It’s always a good idea to consult with one of our cruise agents who will give you the best advice!
