We had a wonderful time in our two weeks exploring Australia and the south island of New Zealand in August. We had the perfect mix of activity and leisure time. We came home feeling refreshed and like we really got to see and do a lot in just 2 short weeks. Our travel agency made things easy to plan, gave us multiple options from which to choose and stayed in contact with us throughout the planning process. Without their help, we never would have known about most of our favorite activities. Upon arrival in each country, there was a package waiting for us that included another copy of our itinerary, vouchers for all of our transfers and activities as well as maps for each location. The itineraries were very clear and included pick up times and locations as well as tips for what to wear or bring for each activity.
One of the highlights of our trip included an overnight liveaboard scuba/snorkeling adventure on the great barrier reef. On our way out to the reef our boat happened upon a mother and baby humpback whale and we ended up watching them breech and do some tail slapping right next to the boat! Each day included 4-5 opportunities to jump in the water and we were able to see reef sharks, turtles, lion fish and so many different kinds of colorful corral. One of our other favorite activities was the Dart River jet boat tour day where we got to see the beautiful New Zealand mountains from a totally different vantage point. Queenstown, NZ was an adorable little ski town and we enjoyed simply walking around and finding good shops and restaurants.
The only thing we would have changed would be to add more time!
