14 Day New Zealand & Australia Exclusive
The Great Outdoors are at their greatest way down south. This fascinating romp across New Zealand and Australia connects travelers to sparkling cities and all-natural marvels alike, from Sydney’s majestic Opera House to the grand mountainscapes of the Routeburn Track, the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, and many other incredible stops.

We begin in Auckland on New Zealand’s North Island with a visit to Waiheke Island, locally known as the “Island of Wine.” Later in Queenstown, the self-proclaimed “Adventure Capital of the World” and birthplace of bungee-jumping, you’ll get the chance to traverse the famous Routeburn Track on a full-day guided walk from Lake Wakatipu through a gorgeous valley of towering beech trees and snow-capped peaks to Routeburn Falls, one of the island’s most picturesque spots.

A flight across the Tasman Sea brings you to your next stop: Sydney. Here, a private guide, driver, and vintage 1964 Holden sedan will treat you to a tour of The Rocks, a stylish inner-city enclave, before hitting three of Sydney’s stunning beaches – Bronte, Tamarama, and Bondi – and Sydney Harbour National Park. Later, visit the Sydney Opera House where, with the help of a private guide, you’ll be treated to an intimate portrait of the architectural marvel’s difficult birth and eventual status as a beloved local landmark. Elsewhere, a private tour will give you the chance to meet kangaroos, koalas, wombats, and other creatures at Featherdale Wildlife Park before heading out to explore Blue Mountains National Park, home of Kings Tableland, Wentworth Falls, and the famous Three Sisters rock formation.

Kata Tjuta and Uluru (Ayers Rock), the remarkable tor formations of Australia’s Red Center, have long served as spiritual touchstones of Aboriginal culture. Once you see them in person, they’ll do the same for you; after a sunset orientation tour at your luxurious tented camp, you’ll head into the Walpa Gorge on a full-day tour of these geological marvels while learning about their significance through a captivating blend of Aboriginal folktales and historical accounts.

From the Red Center, the journey moves north to the edge of the Coral Sea and Port Douglas, where two UNESCO-protected wonders – Queensland’s Wet Tropics and the Great Barrier Reef – meet. You’ll get introduced to the former at Daintree National Park, courtesy of a storytelling tour led by an expert guide that will teach you about the area’s distinct ecosystems, learn about traditional Aboriginal hunting practices, and see how the locals live off of the land. Later, see the sprawling Great Barrier Reef from the deck of a catamaran from which you’ll be able to swim and snorkel in this massive living coral complex.
