You'll find incredible diversity on this magnificent journey that spans the seaside capital of Auckland, snowcapped heights and adventurous spirit of Queenstown and the Souther Alps of the South Pacific, and the cosmopolitan and natural wonders of Sydney and Cairns. In New Zealand, visit one of the country's famed wineries and attend a spirited Maori concert at the Auckland Museum. Take in the breathtaking scenery of Milford Sound. Then hop over to Oz and marvel at the world-famous Sydney Opera House and discover Aboriginal legends on a guided rainforest walk. And no trip here is complete without immersing yourself in the underwater wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, where you’ll spend a full day. Deluxe accommodations in centrally located hotels enhance your adventure and make exploring easy, and our small group lectures, demonstrations, and cultural highlights bring these inviting countries to life.
