Classic South Pacific

Duration
14 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,578

Enjoy the Classic South Pacific by encountering Fijian, Maori and Aboriginal cultures. Travel from Fiji to New Zealand to Australia taking in fantastic sights and experiences on route.


From idyllic, tropical islands, to bubbling geothermal pools, to spectacular Sydney Harbour, explore the unforgettable sights of the South Pacific on this 14 day tour.

Beautiful Fiji welcomes you with its famous smiles, and as much or as little to do as you’d like. Taste the South Pacific with your included tropical smorgasbord lunch. A cruise to exotic Tivua Island will still leave you plenty of time to relax in the sun before your onward flight to Auckland.

New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland seduces visitors with its laid back pace, world class museums, galleries and gardens. Enjoy spectacular city views from your included visit to Mt Eden, as well as historic Parnell Village. You’ll also explore some of the surrounding rainforest, including the black sand beach where ‘The Piano’ was filmed.

The North Island of New Zealand is a geology geek’s paradise. Believed to be over two million years old, the Waitomo Caves feature beautiful stalactite and stalagmite formations. You’ll have the chance to explore them on your way to Rotorua, where spouting geysers and boiling mudpools showcase geothermal New Zealand at its best. Cap off your sightseeing with a traditional Maori concert and Hangi (feast) at the Maori village of Te Tawa Ngahere Marare Pa.

Diverse and historic Sydney greets visitors with its sparkling harbour, iconic Harbour Bridge, and the unforgettable Sydney Opera House. Your included ferry ticket allows you to enjoy all three, including entry to Taronga Zoo, where you can say ‘G’day’ to kangaroos, koalas and other natives as well as many international guests. Your guided tour of The Rocks area offers a fascinating insight into Australia’s convict past, while an afternoon tour takes you to famous Bondi Beach for a more modern slice of Sydney.

Tropical Cairns offers a dazzling array of wildlife amid lush forest surrounds. You’ll visit the Great Barrier Reef for a close encounter with the world’s largest coral reef system. Then climb aboard an amphibious army duck for a trip into Kuranda’s scenic rainforest, where an authentic taste of Aboriginal culture, including a ‘Dreamtime’ walk and the chance to throw a boomerang await.
