Antipodean Adventure with Great Barrier Reef Cruise Overview

Arrive ‘Down Under’ in the New South Wales Capital – Sydney - easily recognised by its sail like harbour front opera house and distinctive harbour bridge. Draped around a natural harbour, Sydney is a vibrant and vivacious city where there’s always a new restaurant to discover, a hip band to check out, a sports team to watch or a show to see. Explore Circular Quay with the Royal Botanical Gardens, Sydney Tower, Queen Victoria Building and various shopping malls and museums. The Rocks district is crammed with narrow lanes, market boutique shops and pavement cafes.  Venture west to the Blue Mountains region, where dramatic scenery includes steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests and waterfalls in complete contrast to the cityscape. Embark on a voyage to New Zealand, glide through the serene fjords backed by the towering Southern Alps and explore the Maori culture through the many museums and culture centres.
