New Zealand, Australia, & Island Resort Stay [L05]



Queenstown, New Zealand Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 21 Days / 19 Nights - New Zealand, Australia & Island Resort Stay

Your trip begins in Auckland, New Zealand. You will marvel at the pristine beauty of the Bay of Islands and The Waitomo Glow-worm caves and the spectacular geothermal regions of Rotorua, rich with Maori Culture and natural history, make this a truly memorable experience. You then travel to the south island of New Zealand to Queenstown where you will tour Milford Sound and then on to Christchurch where you will have an "Alpine Adventure".

Next, you'll travel to Australia and spend time in Melbourne, a City full of Life. Melbourne is set around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. The city itself, laid out in a large rectangle and boasting a lively and cosmopolitan pulse, sits on the northern banks of the Yarra River, about five kilometres from the bay. From cutting-edge architecture and blockbuster musicals to art exhibitions and popular festivals, Melbourne is a city where cultural pursuits are woven into the fabric of everyday life. Regional Victoria also boasts a flourishing arts scene, with impressive galleries, museums, and heritage buildings. Take a tour of the Great Ocean Road, a Steam Train ride through the Dandenongs or view the cute Fairy Penguins on Philip Island.

Then enjoy the sights of Sydney, a World Class City from your Downtown Accommodation. Sydney is Australia's oldest city, the economic powerhouse of the nation and the country's capital in everything but name. It's blessed with sun-drenched natural attractions, dizzy skyscrapers, delicious and daring restaurants, superb shopping and friendly folk. Bursting with character, Sydney is a vibrant city catering to all your desires whether you seek exhilaration and exploration or 100% relaxation. Discover Sydney's unique blend of dining, shopping and recreation options in one of the world's most attractive city environments. Experience the beauty of the Harbour, the Opera House and marvel at the expansive Sydney Harbour Bridge. Take advantage of the many tour options or just go at your own pace and enjoy the excellent restaurants and Nightlife that only Sydney can offer.

Now it's time to relax and take in the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef on your own private island resort. Lay in the sun, snorkel or dive. The Island is a true coral cay right on the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef. Here you can swim straight off the beach to an endless garden of coral where the waters are literally teeming with beautifully coloured fish and marine life. It's what you don't see around the island that makes the resort so special. You won't see any buildings above the tree line. And you won't bump into any daytrippers either. The reef experience is exclusively for guests, a unique experience few other resorts in the world can offer. There's a relaxed island lifestyle that sets this island vacation resort apart, a sophisticated yet casual resort atmosphere. Here the emphasis is on exploring and discovering the natural attractions that have made the island famous around the world.

Your final destination will be Brisbane, the Capital City of Queensland, home of the Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo. Brisbane has several interesting districts, a good street cafe scene, a great riverside park, a busy cultural calendar and a thriving nightlife. Known locally as Bris Vegas, the city is renowned for its sun and the brash, glitzy hordes that follow it, but it's also a thriving arts capital, with dozens of theatres, cinemas, concert halls, galleries and museums.

Aside from the variety of wares offered at the Queen Victoria Market, buskers and street entertainment are a market feature, particularly on Sundays when Queen St is closed and becomes a place of cafes, carnival rides and other activities. And there's always the sound of spruikers cajoling visitors into buying their goods, and you can haggle for the best prices you're able to get.
