Vacation Overview

Experience the best of Australia and New Zealand on an unforgettable tour filled with fascinating wildlife, dramatic scenery, and the region’s favorite cities.

In New Zealand, float by boat through the Waitomo caves under the brilliance of thousands of glowworms, visit the picturesque farm that brought the Hobbit on movie set of The Lord of the Rings trilogy to life, and find inspiration from the majestic beauty of Fiordland National Park, where you’ll cruise the stunning Milford Sound to experience its pristine natural setting just as the Maori and European explorers did hundreds of years ago. Visit Te Puia, home to New Zealand’s largest geyser, bubbling mud pools and silica terraces and experience all that Queenstown offers as the “Adventure Capital of the World.”

Dine aboard the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant as it winds its way through the city streets of Melbourne (a special experience included by Globus), and lose yourself in the city’s boutiques and decadent food and wine scene. From Cairns, a full-day excursion takes you to the Great Barrier Reef to snorkel or to take a semi-submersible watercraft tour of the famous underwater world that explodes with color and marine life. You’ll also visit Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures for a guided tour to see native animals, including Cassowary, Wallaby, Quoll, and Crocodiles. Go behind the scenes at the world-famous Opera House in Sydney and enjoy a spectacular harbor cruise.

Throughout this Australia and New Zealand tour, Globus has also arranged out-of-the-ordinary adventures to make your vacation unique. For example, learn about the Maori culture during a special Hangi dinner and Maori cultural performance Or how about a wine-tasting and tour on beautiful Waiheke Island near Auckland?

From the South Pacific’s must-sees to its hidden gems, this Australia and New Zealand tour is a dream vacation!
