Detailed Description

Australia and New Zealand are amalgamations of wide-open space and settlement.  This 22-day tour of Australia and New Zealand takes you through the most extreme variance of Australia’s habitable coastal areas, while also exploring its awesome Red Centre. New Zealand’s scenery ranges from the welcoming green of the prairies to the looming white tips of the Southern Alps. The indescribable beauty that Australia and New Zealand offer lies in the history, culture, and luxury of the cities, along with the untouched naturalness that encompasses so much of both countries.

The journey through Australia takes you from Melbourne, Australia’s café clad cultural capital, to the deep Red Centre to see the wonders of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest monolith, Uluru. The legend of Dream Time will compel you to wander deeper into your tour. Cool off in the inviting waters of the Great Barrier Reef, swimming with the vibrant fish. Cruise around the Sydney Opera House, the sails of its roof open and waving in the breeze. Australia is inviting throughout the year.

Roaming New Zealand brings a different type of majesty. Auckland’s horizon is constantly covered with sails from ships gliding along the sea. The glowworms of Waitiomo Caves light up the dark, while Rotorua, holds the cultural history of the Maori tribes. A traditional Maori Hangi (method of cooking using heated rocks) will have you inspired and your stomach content. A visit to the Franz Joseph Glacier and Milford Sounds will remind you of nature’s majesty: the stunningly clear waters full of wildlife that thrives in the untouched areas of the country. The joint Australia, New Zealand adventure will show you the delicateness of nature, and the beauty of the spirit.
