Travel to Australia

❮ Back To Message Board
We, my Wife and I, (retired) wish to travel to Australia from the Los Angeles area.. Due to several problems, we cannot fly, so we are looking for a Ship Passage, but not having much luck in finding passage. Preferbly, we want to travel from Los Angeles to Burnie, Tasmania, or to Melborne. A "Cruise" with a couple of stops would be nice. And, of course, the return trip is a must, after spending a month or so "Down Under" Jack

There is a company in New York called Travltips ( that books freighter (as well as mainstream and small-ship) cruises. You can check their website for information, then give them a call for further information. their number is 800-872-8584. They also publish a bi-monthly magazine with freighter, cruise and small ship reviews and it has numerous ads for these kinds of trips. I often find the ads and listings very helpful.
