Tour Overview

Ready to wash that monotony right out of your hair? Head to the South Pacific and send it on its way. Combining fun, sun, glee, and the sea, this tour of Australia and New Zealand introduces you to the favorite features and creatures of both fascinating countries. Starting in New Zealand, you'll witness Waitomo's Glowworm Caves and Rotorua's boiling mud pools before cruising through some of the coolest fiord scenery in the world in Queenstown's Milford Sound. More uplifting sights await in the "Land Down Under" as you take a spin on Melbourne's Star Observation Wheel, a dip in the colorful, coral-filled ocean at the Great Barrier Reef, and a ferry across Sydney Harbour to see the Opera House and other harmonious sights. While you're sure to take plenty of pictures on this tour of the South Pacific, we'll take one of you with a crocodile or koala for the ultimate souvenir.See all the colors of the Australian rainbow by adding a 3-day Globus vacation to its mystical Red Center. You won't see a sunrise or sunset as inspiring as the rays dancing across the face of Ayers Rock or the equally impressive Kata Tjuta.
