About This Trip

This is a trip that exposes the natural beauty of the South of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. Cruise along the southern Australian coast, from Sydney to Melbourne before crossing to New Zealand and travelling up the stunning west coast. Relax on your luxurious cruise ship, enjoying its world-class spa, winning big in the casino or just chilling on the many decks, cocktail in hand. Blend this with some outstanding shore excursions and you have a trip you will never forget. 

 

Starting in Sydney, we head down to the aptly named Eden, a natural paradise nestled in amongst national parks. We then cross over for a visit to Tasmania before arriving in Melbourne for our last stop in Australia. From here, we have a couple of days at sea, while we head over to cruise up the glorious west coast of New Zealand.  

 

We start in the sounds, exploring the spectacular sounds and fjords of Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound and the world-famous Milford Sound. We stop off in Wellington, art-deco Napier and historic Tauranga before finishing off this adventure with a spectacular flourish in Auckland.

There is no better way to discover the beautiful coastline of Australia and New Zealand.

highlights

The coastlines of Australia and New Zealand are so rich and diverse, that we wanted to find a way to explore them deeply, to stop and explore some of these incredible sites. We also wanted to strike a balance between the natural beauty available on this coast and the outstanding towns and villages that have grown from living on the coast.  

 

We also wanted to make sure that your cruise ship was a state of the art, modern ship with all you could hope for on board. With sports pitches, a casino, entertainment every night and more bars and lounges than you will likely visit, the ship is a wonderful place to spend time. 

 

Then in Auckland, we wanted to make sure that when you reached the end of your cruise, you got some time in this incredible area. We want you to truly experience the unique culture and outstanding natural surroundings of this classic New Zealand city. 


location

The tour starts off in Sydney Harbour and we will collect you from your flight into Sydney and transfer you to meet the cruise ship in the harbour. From there we head down the coast to Melbourne before crossing the Tasman Sea and cruising up the coast to Auckland.
