Australia and New Zealand

Next Adventure Australia and New Zealand.  

 I will also be offering a 5 night add on for Australia at the end of  the cruise.  Pricing for this portion of the trip and airfare are not  available at this time.

Norwegian Jewel sailing on 12/22/2019 for  12 nights.  Spend Christmas and Year's on a cruise in New Zealand  I  know it is a long way off, but it will be here before you know and this  is a great price for a holiday cruise. 

Sydney, Austrailia
 Sydney’s harbor is the hub from which there’s much to see and do. You’ll  want to explore this area, home of the iconic Opera House. Admire the  skyline, swim at a harbor beach or cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Want  to see surfing? Grab your sunblock and towel and spend the day on  world-famous Bondi Beach, or take a scenic walk on the coast from Bondi  to Coogee Beach. The Rocks district is a shopper’s mecca offering a wide  variety of goods, from woodcrafts and unique art to outback fashions.

Dunedin (Port Chalmers), New Zealand
 This dramatic South Island coastal town offers a mix of unique natural  beauty and fascinating history. Rare, yellow-eyed penguins, fur seals  and the Royal Albatross all call Dunedin home. Equally impressive is the  Victorian and Edwardian architecture that dates from its days as a gold  rush town. New Zealand’s only castle sits high above the city and  offers sweeping views from its famous gardens. Shop for a locally made  souvenir, with crafts, artwork, wool and leather items being popular.

Akaroa, New Zealand
 Tiny penguins rule the roost in this historic settlement nestled in the  heart of an ancient volcano. With a balmy, year-round climate, these  famous foot-tall residents are certainly not snowbirds. The spectacular  surroundings offer a wealth of outdoor activities, both in the sheltered  harbor and on dry land. Cafes open onto streets and exquisite local  boutiques and galleries offer superb local works. Be sure to sample the  fine fudge and traditional cheeses.

Picton, New Zealand
Built  around a sheltered harbor, Picton is lined with cafés and restaurants  for you to choose from (we suggest the fish and chips). Popular  attractions in Picton include a maritime museum and an aquarium. But  this town is not short on recreational activities. Some of Picton’s  favorite pastimes include fishing, dolphin watching and sea kayaking.  Walk or bike the Queen Charlotte Track or spend the day exploring the  scenic Marlborough Sounds. Check out one of the many wine tours  (probably after biking the track). Then relax as you browse the local  shops that offer a wide range of trinkets, including handmade jewelry,  paintings from local artists and woodcarvings. Before leaving Picton,  it’s time for more fish and chips along the shore. It’s the Picton way!

Napier, New Zealand
 Napier calls itself the Art Deco capital of the world, but it’s also a  leading wine-travel destination. Leveled by an earthquake in 1931,  Napier was rebuilt in Art Deco style. Along with Miami Beach, Napier is  one of the best examples of this style, with many of its structures well  preserved. Take a walk down Marine Parade, a tree-lined ocean boulevard  with fountains and gardens, or go out to the country to enjoy the  lovely vistas, tour superb area vineyards and relax with a glass of  wine.

Tauranga (Rotorua), New Zealand
Go walk-about and  explore Tauranga, set on the beautiful Bay of Plenty. And indeed there  are plenty of things to do. Head to the beach or discover Tauranga’s  lovely parks and rich history. Visit a village buried by a volcanic  eruption and captured in a moment of time – a fascinating yet moving  experience. Take a selfie at Hell’s Gate, an aptly named geothermal park  with boiling pools, fantastic geysers and mud baths, the largest of  which is Poutamu, “the stairway to heaven.”

Auckland, New Zealand
 Surrounded by tranquil golden beaches, lush forests and dramatic  coastal trails, Auckland is a nature lover’s paradise. The 48 volcanic  cones that dot the surrounding area provide stunning panoramic views of  the city and harbor. New Zealand’s largest city is also a shopper’s  paradise offering everything from top designers to local open-air  markets. Learn about the indigenous Maori and take home some native art  pieces or jewelry. The fine, locally produced woolens also make  excellent gifts.
