Travel in style experiencing all that Auckland, Queenstown, Sydney and Hamilton Island Qualia Resort have to offer while enjoying world-renowned properties that are truly the best of the best.


The perfect itinerary for those wanting to experience the best of New Zealand and Australia, this luxurious tour takes you to exciting cities, the spectacular surrounds of Queenstown and the tranquility of the Great Barrier Reef.

Quality-of-life polls consistently rank Auckland among of the world’s best cities to live, and it’s easy to see why. On your full day at leisure, let Auckland seduce you with its laid back pace, world class museums, galleries and gardens.

A Mecca for skiers, Queenstown puts you in the heart of the South Island’s mountain landscape. Nearby Milford Sound, a breathtaking, 16km long fjord carved by glaciers out to the Tasman Sea, will be a highlight of your trip. Climb aboard your scenic flight, then enjoy a cruise through New Zealand’s most famous attraction before returning to Queenstown, with a remote snow landing enroute. Then spend a free day skiing, shopping, or enjoying more of the surrounding landscape.

Beautiful Sydney greets visitors with its iconic Harbour Bridge, and unforgettable Sydney Opera House. See them on a guided tour around the Circular Quay precinct, which includes the historic Rocks district. After lunch, you’ll enjoy a harbour cruise to see the city in style.

Take a full day at leisure to go off the tourist trail and explore the Northern Beaches or browse the chic boutiques of Paddington. Or escape the city like a local, with a day trip to Blue Mountains National Park or the Hunter Valley wine region.

Hamilton Island Qualia Resort is the jewel atop the Whitsunday Islands’ crown. At the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll have water sports, reef tours and fishing at your disposal. Included is a breathtaking aerial journey to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Whitehaven Beach, where you’ll enjoy a complimentary champagne picnic. An extra day at Hayman Island is spent at your leisure.
