Tour Overview

Crikey! If you've always wanted a complete tour of Down Under, with no red stone left uncovered, this is it. Doubling the fun with sightseeing in Australia and New Zealand, this exciting vacation covers New Zealand's North and South Islands as well as Australia's vibrant cities, golden beaches, and mystical Red Center. From Rotorua's boiling mud pools to Waitomo's Glowworm Caves, you'll kick off your tour with the hottest--and coolest--sights of New Zealand. Aptly named "The Remarkables," the South Island's mountain range sets the tone for the incredible sights you'll see throughout the land of the kiwi--and the home of the kangaroo. As you hop from Melbourne to Uluru to Cairns to Sydney, you'll savor the architectural masterpieces of Australia's renowned cities, the natural wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, and everyone's favorite highlight of this encompassing journey--a boomerang-throwing barbecue under the starlit Outback sky.
