Australia 'ideal for cruise ship holidays'

Article content

11 March 2010

People hoping to experience the perfect cruise ship holiday should pick trips around Australia, it has been claimed.

Editor-in-chief of website Cruise Critic, Carolyn Spencer Brown, said the country is one that is "ideally set up" for this type of vacation.

"You've got the Great Barrier Reef for beaches and diving and then fantastic cities like Melbourne and Sydney," she remarked.

Ms Spencer Brown also recommended Perth, with the surrounding wine country excellent for those who like a tipple.

According to the expert, the reason it is so idyllic is because of its size, which allows individuals to enjoy a range of diverse landscapes in a short period of time.

In that respect, it is similar to other popular locations such as South America, she added.

Earlier this year, the Australian Bureau of Statistics published figures showing international arrivals from the country reached record levels in 2009, with 12.4 million people coming from overseas.
