Tour Overview


Lands of awe-inspiring vastness and incredible natural beauty, Australia and New Zealand are the consummate outsider destinations. We set down in Australia's second most populous city, stately Melbourne, to soak up the sights and sounds of the metropolis dubbed the cultural and sporting capital of the country and an urban centre that has been voted world's most liveable city numerous times. Combining a fascinating aboriginal and colonial history with quaint surroundings and cosmopolitan appeal, marvellous Melbourne serves as the perfect introduction to Australia. We explore the Yarra Valley, world-famous for its wineries, and stop off in charming, symmetrical Canberra and dazzling Sydney en route to experience a once-in-a-lifetime cruise around the Great Barrier Reef. Via the vast desert of the Red Centre, we make route for Ayers Rock and on to King's Canyon before ending this leg of the tour in Alice Springs. Across in New Zealand, we balance experiencing the country's incomparable natural beauty with learning about its history and exploring its cultural face. We spend time enjoying nature in Mount Cook National Park, perhaps the most stunning national park in New Zealand -- quite the feat considering the competition of spectacular nature across the country. Through UNESCO Heritage areas of towering peaks, glacier landscapes and verdant rainforest, we discover for ourselves the magic and majesty of New Zealand's topographical diversity and then it's on to the urban centres of Queenstown, Wellington and Auckland, where we get our cultural fix, learning about the country's contemporary society and its Maori roots.
