SOUTH PACIFIC WONDERS:
Australia & New Zealand
February 19 - March 5, 2018
15 days / 14 nights
Winter here, summer there! What a great vacation in two wonderful countries! We can tell you all about it - we’ve been there many times. Australia and her people are a delight! Fly from Philadelphia, cross the International Dateline and skip a day ahead before landing in Cairns, tropical gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, a haven for sea life, turtles and birds. A high speed catamaran excursion takes you to Green Island where you can enjoy a glass bottom boat ride, snorkel or just watch the fish and turtles swim past the pier. Back in Cairns visit the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Center, see traditional dances, throw a boomerang and later meet some of the local koalas and learn more about them with a naturalist. They are the cutest animals you have ever seen!! Fly to Sydney for lots of enjoyment including a tour of the city and the Sydney Opera House. A dinner cruise on the Sydney Harbor lets you see the magnificent skyline from the water. Next day fly to Christchurch, New Zealand, a charming city where you will enjoy a home-cooked dinner with a New Zealand family tonight. This is really fun! Travel on to Queenstown where enroute you will visit a New Zealand family farm where you will learn
how the family farm operates - more fun! This evening a gondola ride to dinner at the Skyline Restaurant overlooking Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable Mountains. You’ll visit Arrowtown, a turn-of-the-century Goldrush Town before reaching Queenstown, gateway to Milford Sound. Look forward to a breathtakingly beautiful cruise of this fjord, with rock faces rising over 4,000 ft. above you.
There are lots of things to do in Queenstown during your 3 nights there including taking an exciting jet boat ride on the Shotover River - it is a great experience!! From Queenstown you depart for your return flight home or add a post tour for three nights in beautiful Fiji! This is a very good Collette Tour and the price is right! Airfare included. Departs Independence, Newark and Wilmington.
