The Lands Down Under and small group touring make for a perfect combination on this wide-ranging 22-day journey. Beginning in Cairns, ride the historic railway to Kuranda, then descend via a Skyrail gondola.  Swim and snorkel during a day-long Great Barrier Reef excursion. In Alice Springs, embark on an Aboriginal “dreamtime” tour, meeting Walpiri tribespeople, and enjoy a traditional “bushman’s” dinner.  Watch the sunset at fabled Ayers Rock.  Highlights during a three-night Sydney stay include a Sydney Harbour catamaran cruise, Featherdale Wildlife Park, and the iconic Opera House.  After touring Christchurch, the “Garden City,” see sheepdogs at a farm.  Explore spectacular Mt. Cook National Park and take a cruise through Milford Sound’s breathtaking fjords.  Discover scenic Queenstown.  In geothermal Rotorua, experience Maori culture at a traditional hangi dinner. The journey ends with sightseeing in vibrant Auckland.  Enjoy additional time in the “City of Sails” with an optional 3-day/2-night post-tour extension.
