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.

Imagine a scene of regal sailboats floating atop blue waters, hugged by a picturesque landscape of rolling green mountains and cloud sprinkled skies. Welcome to Picton.
Napier is known as the Art Deco City, as it is home to the world's largest concentration of art deco architecture. Travel into the foothills to find award-winning vineyards.
A red-hot arts scene, hip wine bars, designer boutiques, nearby countryside and steep hillsides lined with picture-perfect Victorian houses – the Kiwi capital of Wellington has it all.
Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, Akaroa is rich with beautiful bays, French and English colonial history, and even the largest little penguin colony on the mainland.
Were it not for the absence of the Scottish brogue, you'd think you were in Edinburgh. Dunedin is home to New Zealand's only castle, and architecture borrowed heavily from Scotland.
Newcastle - NSW
In Newcastle, natural attractions offer opportunities for exploring – follow a bush walk trail at Blackbutt Reserve to see koalas, kangaroos and native birds. Alternatively, sip cocktails at a harbour-side restaurant.
