Exploring Australia & New Zealand

Sunset on a lake in New Zealand

Wednesday, February 5, 2025 to Wednesday, February 26, 2025

Small group touring and the Lands Down Under – they add up to a perfect combination as we travel from Australia’s sophisticated Sydney, sacred Uluru (Ayers Rock), and the wondrous Great Barrier Reef to New Zealand’s towering Mount Cook and breathtaking Milford Sound, plus Rotorua, Queenstown, and Auckland.

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. If you wish to spend more time in the “City of Sails,” an optional 3-day/ 2-night post-tour extension is available.
