Arrive in Auckland, a diverse and multicultural city. Spend two nights exploring all this metropolis has to offer from major sporting events, Concerts and festivals to outdoor adventures, Designer shopping and world-class food and wine. 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. 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

Bay of Islands
Plentiful sunshine and sandy shores… you’ll see why Captain Cook called this area the Bay of Plenty. Close by lie the steaming hot springs and exploding mud pools of Rotorua.
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.
