Why Visit Australia & New Zealand?

Breathtaking & Heart Stopping

With the breathtaking scenery of New Zealand and Australia and the heart stopping extreme activities like bungee jumping, there is room for every passion

Depending upon the amount of time you have available for your holiday, you have several options. You can take a cruise that sails round-trip from Australia, one that goes from Australia to New Zealand, visit as part of a world cruise or join a ship from the US as it repositions. For cruises originating in Australia and New Zealand, you can get a great holiday on a variety of cruise lines without needing to invest more than about 14 – 16 days of your holiday time. Most of these excursions will stop at key points in both countries, including Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart (Tasmania) in Australia and then Wellington, Dunedin, Christchurch, Napier and Auckland, New Zealand. There are also itineraries of as little as seven days that will show you at least some of these areas.  

If you have more time available, you have a couple of additional options. If at all possible, take a land tour after or before your cruise. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef alone could occupy days of your time, with its plethora of multi-coloured coral and sea life. Then there are the natural wonders of both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Go “tramping,” that is taking one of the many published self-guided nature walks, and you are sure to see sights that will truly amaze you. For the extreme adventurer, visit Queenstown, known as the adrenaline capital of the world – the home of “bungee.” There you can engage in a variety of heart-stopping pursuits, including leaping off bridges with large rubber bands around your ankles and taking extreme jet boat rides that will leave you hoarse from screaming.  

For the tamer among us, of course, there is much to see and do of a cultural nature. Take a scenic bus tour; enjoy afternoon tea at an elegant sidewalk café. All of these things are available too, and that’s what makes this region truly appeal to just about everybody.  

The best time to go is when it is wintertime on our side of the world, since it is summertime there. Their seasons’ run just about the same as ours do, only at the opposite ends of the calendar from ours.
