  • 19 Nov 19

    Akaroa, New Zealand

    The first French settlement in New Zealand is a fittingly charming town filled with an aura of romance and offers a sleepy pace of life. Spectate from the provincial harbour as the occasional dolphin or seal pop above water level, after which sample the wonderful European’esque bakeries and restaurants.

          

  • 20 Nov 19

    Wellington, New Zealand

    Wellington’s visuals more than makes up for its somewhat-windy weather; charming Victorian timber buildings nestle the hillside above the harbour, most of which serving as cottages for the hip locals.

    Auckland, New Zealand

    Defined by its two harbours, volcanic landscape, surf beaches and nearby rainforests, Auckland’s endless photogenic vantage points are reason enough to visit.

  • 24 Nov 19

    Bay of Islands, New Zealand

    Ahead the Northland region of New Zealand lies the enchanting Bay of Islands, a collective of over 140 islands that make up New Zealand's overseas territory.

    Yorkey’s Knob (for Cairns)

    Despite its somewhat comical name, the pleasant locals of Yorkey’s Knob are adamantly defensive and recently prevented developers from advertising under the name “Yorkey’s Beach”. Beyond the strong sense of local pride, Yorkey’s Knob is frequented for its wonderful Half Moon Bay and Marina.

         

  • 03 Dec 19

    Port Douglas (for the Great Barrier Reef)

    A popular base for exploring the reefs of Great Barrier, the Daintree rainforest and Cape Tribulation’s beaches, Port Douglas has come a long way since its beginnings as a back-beat fishing village.

Highlights

  • Akaroa, New Zealand

    Akaroa is a village situated in the heart of an ancient volcano on the South Island of New Zealand. With waters that are home to the world’s smallest and rarest dolphin, the Hector’s Dolphin, Akaroa is a haven for animal lovers. Be sure to take a dolphin sighting tour where you can also spot New Zealand fur seals, little blue penguins, and various other forms of sea life in and around the sheltered harbor.

  • Blue Mountains

    Blue Mountains & Australian Wildlife

    Start your tour by crossing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, entering into the National Park and winding your way along Cliff Drive, you'll take in spectacular views of Megalong Valley before arriving at Echo Point, perched on the edge of a 170 metre cliff face. Echo Point has views stretching across to the Three Sisters - a trio of rocky pinnacles. Here you will learn about the Aboriginal dreamtime legend of the Three Sisters at the Waradah Aboriginal Centre. Experience traditional dance, take part in an interactive didgeridoo performance, examine authentic artworks and take home genuine Aboriginal souvenirs. Learn about Australia's living Aboriginal culture from the local Darug and Gundungurra tribes through informal cultural discussions and lectures. Your journey then takes you to Scenic World, to enjoy 360 views of the Jamison Valley. Next you enjoy an afternoon encounter at Featherdale Park and have your photo taken with a cuddly koala, see kangaroos, wombats, dingoes and cute little fairy penguins. The last stop will be at Homebush Bay, the venue of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. 

  • Brisbane, Australia

    Australia’s third-largest city and the hub of Queensland culture, Brisbane manages to montage its past, present and future in celebration of itself. Traverse between points of historical heritage and modern cutting-edge hotspots, such as the convict-built Old Commissariat Store and the new Gallery of Modern Art. Get your bearings with a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane—think London Eye only down under—an iconic landmark that offers bird’s eye views of the entire city below. If that’s not high enough for you, opt for a helicopter tour that will give you a better lay of the land and the surrounding area.

  • Dunedin, New Zealand

    The ‘Edinburgh of the South” proudly pedestals its rich Scottish heritage, bagpipes and haggis being common affairs in New Zealand’s oldest city. Nature enthusiasts will marvel at the yellow-eyed penguins and the world’s only mainland albatross colony. Dunedin's historical wealth endures in such institutions as the University of Otago, the oldest in the country. 

  • Sydney Opera House

    Sydney Opera House Tour

    A work of art that came into existence against impossible odds - to become one of the busiest performing arts centres in the world. Working with new, rich audio-visual components, where images are projected onto the fabric of the building - your guide will take you on an emotional journey, engrossing you in a story to rival any opera plot with its dramatic twists and turns. Some 1,500 performances, from opera to circus, rock and cabaret, are staged each year to audiences of around 1.5 million.

  • Sydney, Australia

    Much of Sydney’s charm comes from her interplay with the natural landscape: national parks stretch through the concrete jungle, dashing between skyscrapers and suburbs. On the waterfront, sandstone walls and golden beaches attract bronzed locals for both relaxation and partying. 

  • Wellington, New Zealand

    Wellington’s visuals more than makes up for its somewhat-windy weather; charming Victorian timber buildings nestle the hillside above the harbour, most of which serving as cottages for the hip locals. Why not explore the Museum of Wellington City & Sea, or the Museum of New Zealand, or venture up Mount Victoria for dramatic city views.
