Begin your tour in Cairns with an excursion to the Great Barrier Reef. Traveling on to Alice Springs, embark on an Aboriginal “dreamtime” tour and visit fabled Ayers Rock. Enjoy a three-night stay in cosmopolitan Sydney; tour English-accented Christchurch, New Zealand; and spend two nights in New Zealand’s remarkable Mt. Cook National Park. After these explorations, you’ll cruise stunning Milford Sound and discover New Zealand’s “adventure capital,” Queenstown. Experience Maori culture in geothermal Rotorua before your tour concludes in vibrant Auckland.
