Daily Itinerary

Kia Ora! During this power trip to the South Pacific, you’ll encounter two different countries with very distinct qualities. In New Zealand, expect a miracle of geology, majestic mountains and thermal waters. You’ll also meet the Māori people, a Polynesian warrior culture with their own exotic customs and mythology. The Australia leg of this caravan begins with the Great Barrier Reef, where you can choose to swim, snorkel or simply unwind aboard a Catamaran. From there, we meander through a variety of landscapes and communities, visiting sanctuaries that house some of the most unique wildlife in the world. Our final stop takes us to the iconic Sydney Opera House, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
