Australia Cruise and New Zealand Cruise
The sights and sounds of Australia and New Zealand are as diverse as they are magical and compelling. The approach to Sydney Harbour is one of the greatest in the world, and the spectacle of the magnificent Opera House and world famous Coat hanger bridge can only be truly appreciated from an inbound ship.
Contrast the still, magical silence of a New Zealand fjord with the view above. Jagged, mountainous peaks awash in lush greenery tumbling down to still, silent ocean… streams that roar and thunder into glass calm waters that mirror your ship with almost perfect clarity. Snow covered peaks surround cities where the marinas are full of yachts and motor boats.
And the Great Barrier Reef almost defies description at all. This is the largest underwater theme park in the world, and all the more amazing for showcasing nature at its most raw and splendid. Enormous coral reefs and small, blinding white sandbars that look like pebbles on a sparkling blue carpet, inviting venues for a ‘barbie' and maybe a few of the local beers.
Cities with names so evocative that just the mention of them makes the adrenaline rush. Adelaide… Auckland…. Wellington… Brisbane.
Perth, the Queen of the mighty Murray River, is the gateway to the wonders of Western Australia. In New Zealand, the spectacular natural wonders such as Milford Sound stand like surreal, spectacular drum rolls. Christchurch and Dunedin display evocative links with the home country, twelve thousand miles away.
Of course, Sydney is the Queen of the Southern Hemisphere, one of the great must see cities of the world. Bondi beach is world famous, as is Tauranga Park Zoo and such attractions as Manley. The Rocks is the restored, gentrified former area of the waterfront now sprinkled with bars, shops and waterfront restaurants ideal for soaking up that wonderful, ‘down under' lifestyle.
