Day two is the red centre. In Alice Springs you can glimpse the history of yesteryear, the thriving culture and unique lifestyle of today. In the evening you will be treated to an amazing showcase of outback stars in Maguri, a remote town around 40km from Coober Pedy. THe final days see you rolling through the spectacular Flinders Ranges before your journey comes to an end in Adelaide.

The capital and most populous city in Tasmania, Hobart is filled with old world charm. Stroll along the historic waterfront, famous for its Georgian architecture, and take in the sights.

Located on New Zealand’s South Island, Dunedin is sure to be a pleasant chapter in your voyage. Known both as a City of Literature, and the Edinburgh of the South, it is no surprise there is a statue of Robbie Burns in the heart of town. Though a Scottish influence can be felt throughout town, Dunedin is still distinctly Kiwi. Take a guided coach tour around the city and view the Flemish architecture or explore the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of the Otago Peninsula. Stroll along one of the many beautiful, white sandy beaches. View some of the wildlife unique to the area, like the Northern Royal Albatross, the Little Blue Penguin, and the Kiwi. Learn more about local culture at Toitū Otago Settlers Museum, where you will discover the story of the people who settled here. If you are up for a challenge, take a page from the Guinness Book of World Records and climb to the top of Baldwin Street: the steepest street in the world. Or for a chance to live like another famous literary character, Willy Wonka, visit Cadbury World, a working chocolate factory located in the heart of Dunedin.
17 February 2018 Akaroa, New Zealand.
Named for the Māori word for “Long Harbor”, Akaroa is a village situated in the heart of an ancient volcano on the South Island of New Zealand. With waters that are home to the world’s smallest and rarest dolphin, the Hector’s Dolphin, Akaroa is a haven for animal lovers. Be sure to take a dolphin sighting tour where you can also spot New Zealand fur seals, little blue penguins and various other forms of sea life in and around the sheltered harbour. If you would rather stay on dry land, take a tour of an Alpaca farm and get up close and personal with the unique animals. View the colonial architecture, crafts and cafés as you explore the streets of this charming seaside town. There is a distinctly French flair here, with many businesses and homes flying French flags in their windows. The surrounding area is also filled with stunning scenery. Surfers, or surf enthusiasts, will want to visit Le Bons Bay or Okains Bay beaches for big waves. There are also several well-marked and well-kept walking trails to view more of the dramatic landscape.
18 February 2018 Picton, New Zealand.
A seaside town situated close to the head of Queen Charlotte Sound on the South Island, Picton is a great jumping off point for exploring the Marlborough Sounds. Like most of New Zealand, this area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Choose your own adventure and go fishing, swimming or bird watching, or visit the playful fur seal pups at their colony near the waterfall at Ohau Point. Bring your walking shoes and walk to the Snout—located between Picton and Waikawa Bay, this peninsula is still wild and untamed. There are tracks and trails for all abilities, from a few minutes-long stroll to a full-scale hiking adventure. Oenophiles will also be interested to know that Picton is less than half an hour away from the world famous Marlborough wine region. Explore more than 35 cellar doors—from small family producers, to international operations. Pair a glass of acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc with another regional delicacy, greenshell mussels. And when it is time to wave goodbye to Picton, be sure to stay above deck to see the incredible sights of the Queen Charlotte Sound. Sailing through should be a bucket-list item for any world-traveller.
19 February 2018 Napier (overnight on-board), New Zealand.
Located on the east coast of the North Island, Napier is a popular tourist town, and together with inland Hastings, are known as “the Bay Cities of New Zealand”. After Napier was destroyed by a devastating earthquake in 1931, the city rebuilt in spectacular Art Deco style that Mr. Gatsby himself would approve of. Take a stroll through the streets and you’d swear you can hear the clink of glasses and the faint notes of jazz music in the air. But even though the past is still very much present in Napier, there are plenty of contemporary delights, too. Make a pilgrimage to Pania of the Reef, a statue of a figure of Māori mythology, and one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the country. Take a guided walk around the city, or visit the gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers. Spend a day testing out the local vineyards, or stop by the Napier farmers’ market for fresh artisan products.
21 February 2018 Tauranga, New Zealand.
Situated in the heart of the sunniest region of the North Island, Tauranga is a popular seaside getaway for locals and visitors alike. Initially settled by the Māori in the 13th century, the Bay of Plenty area has an abundance of things to see and do. Relax on one of the many golden beaches that make this area popular with surfers, sailors and divers. Venture out on the water for dolphin watching, or even a jet boat ride if you have a need for speed. Grab a bite to eat and a refreshing glass of New Zealand vino on the Strand—a waterfront area is filled with restaurants, cafés and pubs, which is also the perfect location for people watching. Head just outside of town to the site of Te Puia, which includes a thermal valley, the Pohutu geyser, mud pool, and the Pikirangi Māori village. Soak your tired limbs in the rejuvenating thermal pools and then learn more about Māori culture at the carving and weaving schools. And if your timing is right, you just might get to witness the spectacular sight of the Pohutu geyser shooting nearly 100 feet into the sky.
22 February 2018 Auckland, New Zealand.
Disembark and transfer to the airport for an overnight flight to the UK .
