Raise a Glass to New Destinations on Our Australia Cruises

“The capital of the Margaret River region.” “The gateway to Margaret River wine country.” “The events capital of Western Australia.” Whatever you want to call it, “the coastal playground” of Busselton sure does have a lot of monikers—and even more things to do.

The adventures begin the moment you step off the ship, as we dock next to the famed Busselton Jetty, the longest wooden pier in the world. From here you can walk to the beach and waterfront district, where there are more than enough water sports, shops, restaurants, cafés, and bars to entertain you for the rest of your stay in Busselton.

If you want to go further afield, visit the national parks of Leeuwin-Naturaliste and Tuart Forest, go birdwatching at the Vasse Wonnerup Wetlands and Boranup Karri Forest, or tour such historic sites as Ellensbrook, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, and the Busselton Heritage Trail. But if you’d prefer to hit the wine trail instead, then you’ve hit the vintage jackpot on this Australia cruise.

The Margaret River region is home to over 200 vineyards, producing 20% of Australia’s premium wines. The Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays, in particular, are outstanding, and must-see-and-sample wineries include Cape Mentelle, Cullen Wines, Leeuwin Estate, Moss Wood, Vasse Felix, and Voyager Estate. No matter where you end up, there will definitely be lots to cheers about during your Australia cruise with Azamara®!
