Prices From:
US$ 2,859

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Explore the two most popular cities of Australia and New Zealand on this air-land combo tour. Start in Sydney, where you'll tour the Sydney Opera House, cruise across the famous harbour, and see koalas and kangaroos at Taronga Zoo. Then head on to Auckland where you'll explore the twin harbours, learn about Maori traditions, and enjoy unbeatable views of the landscape.


This 11-day Australia vacation showcases the two most popular cities in Australia and New Zealand. Airfare and transfers are included along with First Class accommodation throughout.

Your trip to Australia begins in Sydney, the nation's largest city and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Take a half-day tour to see the city sights, starting in the historic Rocks neighbourhood where you'll learn about the country's formation as a penal colony. Admire views of the iconic Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House before heading to the Eastern Suburbs. Follow Oxford Street, home of the famous Sydney Mardi Gras to Paddington and the city's top beaches including Tamarama, Bronte, and Bondi. The next day, take advantage of a Hop-On Hop-Off Harbour Cruise to see some of Sydney's most famous landmarks from the water. Along with the best views of the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, you might visit Taronga Zoo, Shark Island, Fort Denison, Luna Park, or Manly, each with its own unique Sydney story. Of course, there's more to see and do in Australia's Harbour City, so take an extra day at leisure to explore, or opt for a day trip to the Blue Mountains or Hunter Valley wine region.

Time to switch it up and head to Auckland, New Zealand, a spectacular city framed by two natural harbours. You can get your bearings and enjoy the best views of the city by climbing the Sky Tower or you can head to Auckland Domain to explore an extinct volcanic crater and meander about the gorgeous hillsides. A Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Ticket will help you get to some of the outer city sights, then take half a day to cruise the sparkling waters of Waitemata Harbour. Get the best view of various landmarks like the Viaduct Basin, historic Devonpoart, and Rangitoto Island, learning about the history of each one. The next day, explore the wonders of nearby Waiheke Island. You'll cruise across the Hauraki Gulf to admire the island's unique culture, history, and geography. You'll then have another day in Auckland at leisure, where you can take advantage of the local markets bursting with Maori arts and crafts or take a day trip to the nearby Bay of Islands or Rotorua, home to mud pools and geysers. After exploring Auckland, you'll head to the airport where Air New Zealand will take you back home in comfort.
