Our stunning destinations.
South Australia’s easy-going capital is your portal to the rugged Outback and outdoor adventure, as well as some of the country’s finest vineyards. Hop over to Kangaroo Island for indigenous wildlife.
Airlie Beach is one of the best departure points for excursions to the Great Barrier Reef. Charming shops and exhilarating skydives will make sure you have a memorable visit.
Fulfil a dream and take a 1930s ferry to Lone Pine Sanctuary to cuddle koalas. Sightsee in style by rickshaw or visit Roma Street Parkland – the world’s largest subtropical city garden.
Casuarina trees and coconut palms line the beaches of this subtropical paradise. Spot bottlenose dolphins, try a new water sport, or linger for hours over a meal at a waterfront bistro.
Esperance has plenty of beaches and offers a number of water activities. It's perfect for swimming - and even better for surfing as it is home to the world's heaviest wave, the Cyclops.
Take in the waterfront scene at Salamanca Place or savour a glass of wine at the Moorilla Wine Estate. Hobart’s Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens boasts the world’s only sub-Antarctic plant house.
A melting pot of migrant influences, many call Melbourne Australia’s cultural capital. Browse the 1,000-plus stalls of Queen Vic market or visit the Abbotsford Convent with its galleries, restaurants and gardens.
In Newcastle, natural attractions offer opportunities for exploring – follow a bush walk trail at Blackbutt Reserve to see koalas, kangaroos and native birds. Alternatively, sip cocktails at a harbour-side restaurant.
Welcome to the gateway of wild Western Australia. Bathed by an astounding 3,000 hours of sunshine each year, Perth offers the excitement of city-living, spoken with an Outback accent.
Be warned: lorikeets perch on your shoulder to steal your lunch at the interactive Wildlife Habitat reserve. You’ll love Four Mile Beach, a serene arc along the Great Barrier Reef.
One of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, Sydney offers a plethora of attractions. Visit the iconic Sydney Opera House for a behind-the-scenes tour or people watch at legendary Bondi Beach.
Keep an eye out for the ubiquitous booby while cruising Willis Island. These peculiar seabirds are spectacular divers and great fun to watch. Other highlights include wedge-tailed shearwaters and sooty terns.
Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, Akaroa is rich with beautiful bays, French and English colonial history, and even the largest little penguin colony on the mainland.
Ascend the soaring 1076ft Sky Tower for jaw-dropping 360-degree views of this captivating Kiwi city. Or, venture just a little further inland to explore the nation’s proud Maori heritage.
Many consider the Bay of Islands home to some of the world’s finest beaches. It’s the ideal place to try out some active pursuits, such as kayaking and swimming with dolphins.
As cold mountain water cascades from the cliffs above Doubtful Sound, it creates an unusual phenomenon – a marine ecosystem of fresh and saltwater, a playground for fur seals and penguins.
Were it not for the absence of the Scottish brogue, you'd think you were in Edinburgh. Dunedin is home to New Zealand's only castle, and architecture borrowed heavily from Scotland.
Steep cliffs, carved over centuries by dozens of waterfalls, surround the largest and most complex of the many fjords along the New Zealand coast – Dusky Sound.
As we sail into the fjords of the Milford Sound, even your ship will shrink in comparison. Situated within Fiordland National Park, this natural wonder is a wildlife haven.
Napier is known as the Art Deco City, as it is home to the world's largest concentration of art deco architecture. Travel into the foothills to find award-winning vineyards.
Imagine a scene of regal sailboats floating atop blue waters, hugged by a picturesque landscape of rolling green mountains and cloud sprinkled skies. Welcome to Picton.
Plentiful sunshine and sandy shores… you’ll see why Captain Cook called this area the Bay of Plenty. Close by lie the steaming hot springs and exploding mud pools of Rotorua.
A red-hot arts scene, hip wine bars, designer boutiques, nearby countryside and steep hillsides lined with picture-perfect Victorian houses – the Kiwi capital of Wellington has it all.
The Maori people of New Zealand call it ‘Aotearoa’, meaning the Land of the Long White Cloud. It’s the youngest country in the world, and is brimming with captivating sights and experiences – the Hollywood blockbusters Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit were filmed entirely on NZ peaks, plains and rivers. Relax on one of the beaches or get your pulse racing with one of the many adventure sports this country is known for – such as jet-skiing and bungee-jumping.
From cosmopolitan cities to the rugged Outback, it’s no wonder Australia is a bucket list destination. While Bondi Beach buzzes with surfers, Yorkey’s Knob in Cairns is a slice of paradise, and the Great Barrier Reef – the largest living thing on earth – is an oceanic wonder just waiting to be explored. The indigenous wildlife is like nowhere else, and, along with areas of natural beauty, carefully preserved for future generations.
