Beginning in Cairns, ride the historic railway to Kuranda, then descend via a Skyrail gondola. Swim and snorkel during a day-long Great Barrier Reef excursion.
In Alice Springs, embark on an Aboriginal “dreamtime” tour, meeting Walpiri tribespeople, and enjoy a traditional bushman’s dinner. Watch the sunset at fabled Ayers Rock.
Highlights during a three-night Sydney stay include a Sydney Harbour catamaran cruise, Featherdale Wildlife Park, and the iconic Opera House. After touring Christchurch, the “Garden City,” see sheepdogs at a farm.
Explore spectacular Mt. Cook National Park and take a cruise through Milford Sound’s breathtaking fjords. Discover scenic Queenstown. In geothermal Rotorua, experience Maori culture at a traditional hangi dinner.
The journey ends with sightseeing in vibrant Auckland. Enjoy additional time in the “City of Sails” with an optional 3-day/2-night post-tour extension.
