Down Under Discovery

19 Day Tour from Auckland to Sydney

Australia and New Zealand—two countries with breathtaking and unique scenery, as well as vibrant cities. On this Australia and New Zealand tour, you’ll have an opportunity to see Australia’s and New Zealand’s scenic highlights and most popular cities, including Auckland, Queenstown, Melbourne, Cairns, and Sydney.

Words simply cannot describe the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, with its clear, tropical water and explosion of colors. You’ll get to see it in person and even snorkel in it or take a watercraft tour! Similarly, photos do not adequately depict the magnificence and amazing size of Ayers Rock (Uluru) in Australia’s Outback. You must stand before it to get a true perspective of its size and to see the changing colors of the rock at sunset. On this tour, you’ll have that opportunity and you’ll learn about Uluru’s significance to the Aboriginal people. In New Zealand, more breathtaking scenery awaits you at Fiordland National Park, where you’ll cruise on the fjord and witness the extraordinary beauty and sheer cliffs.

On this Australia and New Zealand tour, you’ll also experience sophisticated, yet laid-back, cities. In Melbourne, soak up the city’s atmosphere and discover its boutiques, cafés, and world-class dining. Globus has also arranged some fun experiences for you here…a treat at a local café and lunch aboard the historic Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. Sydney offers a spectacular harbor; the world-famous Opera House, which you’ll visit during your sightseeing tour; fabulous shopping; and cosmopolitan cuisine. Known for adventure, Queenstown is a marvelous city set in the magnificent landscapes of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. Here, enjoy a cruise on Lake Wakatipu.

From the sun-scorched desert of the Outback to the tropical Great Barrier Reef and from the smaller destinations in New Zealand to the cosmopolitan cities in Australia, this is a dream vacation!
