Australia and New Zealand

The cities around Australia's shores offer a friendly welcome and real diversity, not to mention stunning scenery.

Any adventure Down Under can combine unique wildlife and extraordinary landscapes. You will also step into friendly cities, and have the chance to learn about the rich aboriginal and Maori cultures.

Where we sail.

Adelaide, SA, Australia

Connoisseurs of New World wines are in luck. Around a third of all Australia's supply is produced an hour or less from church-sprinkled Adelaide, a legacy of German settlers in the early 1800. Cheers!

Christchurch (tours from Akaroa), New Ze

Akaroa means “long harbor” in Maori, and the town certainly lives up to its name. Overlooked by a dormant volcano on its thin peninsula, the sheltered Akaroa is a popular resort with stunning views.

Auckland, New Zealand

In a nation where stunning scenery is a given, this water wonderland, “City of Sails”, sparkles in the sunlight, surrounded by more than 48 extinct volcanoes in wild mountainous scenery. A natural joy.

Albany, WA, Australia

Albany is a small city on the southern corner of Western Australia. Once a whaling town, it’s today known for its beautiful beaches, coastal granite formations, nearby wineries and majestic forest.

Bay of Islands, New Zealand

North of Auckland, along the narrow Northland peninsula, lies a shady “cathedral” of some of the world’s largest trees. These hulking specimens stand up to 170 feet tall, and are over 1,200 years old.

Brisbane, QLD, Australia

The capital of Queensland is a wonder. The Brisbane River meanders through the heart of the city, past the elegant Georgian buildings of native sandstone and their neighboring towers of sleek glass.
