Melbourne Shore Excursions: Explore Wildlife

Get a closer look at local wildlife in Melbourne, Australia, with Princess.

You'll visit many destinations on your Australia/New Zealand cruise, but perhaps none will offer nature and wildlife lovers as many chances to explore their environment than what you’ll experience on Melbourne excursions.

Melbourne is a big city, which would lead most to think that it mainly focuses on urban activities like shopping and eating out at fancy restaurants. While there's plenty of that to go around in this city, many of the Melbourne shore excursions offered in the city will help you branch out and perhaps tackle something out of the ordinary.

For example, it's not every day that you have the chance to view koalas and kangaroos up close and personal, but Melbourne excursions to You Yangs National Park will provide exactly that. Watch the koala munch on a eucalyptus plant as kangaroos, wallabies, possums and other creatures frolic throughout the forest.

Prefer something a bit more romantic during Melbourne excursions? It doesn't get much better than a trip through the Australian wine country. This part of the experience is beautiful enough on its own, but combine it with some delicious wine tastings and it's sure to be a trip you'll never forget.
