Cairns, Queensland00:00 - 19:00

Tourism is the lifeblood of Cairns (pronounced Caans). The city makes a good base for exploring the wild top half of Queensland, and tens of thousands of international travelers use it as a jumping-off point for activities such as scuba diving and snorkeling trips to the Barrier Reef, as well as boating, fishing, parasailing, scenic flights, and rain-forest treks.It's a tough environment, with intense heat and fierce wildlife. Along with wallabies and grey kangaroos in the savannah and tree kangaroos in the rain forest, you'll find stealthy saltwater crocodiles, venomous snakes, and jellyfish so deadly they put the region’s stunning beaches off- limits to swimmers for nearly half the year. Yet despite this formidable setting, Cairns and tropical North Queensland are far from intimidating places. The people are warm and friendly, the sights spectacular, and—at the right time of year—the beachside lounging is world-class.

Alotau11:30 - 18:30

Alotau is the provincial capital of the Milne Bay Province located in the southeast bay of Papua New Guinea. The town and surrounding area has been an important staging ground during World War II and we will see remains and memorials dating back or referring to the war. On a tour of the town, visitors will appreciate lovely vistas of the bay and experience the markets, which are frequented not only by locals, but also by islanders selling their products or looking for produce to take back into Milne Bay. Alotau is an important port facility for the islands and attracts many vendors of handicrafts from different islands.

Madang08:00 - 18:00

The eastern half of the island of New Guinea - second largest in the world - was divided between Germany (north) and the United Kingdom (south) in 1885. The latter area was transferred to Australia in 1902, which occupied the northern portion during World War I and continued to administer the combined areas until independence in 1975. A nine-year secessionist revolt on the island of Bougainville ended in 1997 after claiming some 20,000 lives. On the north coast of the island, we find colourful Madang, called the “prettiest town in the South Pacific”. Its peninsula-setting is a showplace of parks, waterways, luxuriant shade trees and sparkling tropical islands. Although small, the town has modern urban facilities, including hotels, department stores, markets and art shops. The people of Madang can be broken into four distinct groups - islanders, coastal people, river people and mountain people. These groups are similar in appearance except for the smaller Simbai mountain tribesmen from the foothills. The traditional dress consists mainly of traditional dyed multi-coloured grass skirts made out of either pandanas leaves or sago palm. The women from the mountain areas wear skirts that are colourless, narrow and stringy. Unlike the women, men wear meshy net aprons in front and a clutter of target leaves astern.

Wewak08:00 - 18:00

The Sepik region of Papua New Guinea is a wonderland of islands, beautiful coastlines, river systems and mountain ranges. It is the site of Japanese surrender in September 1945, and a history rich in human endeavours. First colonised by Germans in 1885, the area soon attracted mercenaries, explorers, traders, labour recruiters, and missionaries. But it is the timeless history of the Sepik people themselves which provide the mystery and exotic folklore of this fascinating area. View less Wewak is an attractive palm-fringed town which felt the might of Japanese troops who “discovered” its isolation and hidden ports around Kairiru Island. Many war memorials remain around the outskirts of the plantations and a Japanese gun still points from the eastern end of the island. Wewak is the capital of East Sepik province and located not far from Cape Wom. Cape Wom was the site of the Japanese surrender to allied-forces, where Lieutenant General Adachi signed the documents and handed his sword to Major General Robertson on 13th September 1945. A war memorial marks the site and the wartime airstrip is still in place. Another memorial in town has been erected at the site of the Japanese war graves and nearby is the Japanese/Papua New Guinea Peace Park.

Jayapura, Irian Jaya07:00 - 14:00

Jayapura is the largest Indonesian city in New Guinea, and is the provincial capital of Papua, Indonesia. At last count the city – locally known as Port Numbay – had a population of over 315,000 people. Providing both a location to clear in and out of Indonesia, and an opportunity to experience traditional dances and customs of Papua, the city is close to Lake Sentani. View less This region is famed for the distinctive art, traditional motifs, sago bowls and bark paintings produced by the people who live around and on the lake. A visit to Jayapura often combines a stop at the lake for rides on local longboats to reach one of the islands. Here it is possible to see a local dance presentation, walk around the island, climb up to the church for views of the lake, and to see the local artifacts.

Makassar08:00 - 15:00

Once the gateway to Indonesia, Makassar is teeming with vestiges of its Dutch colonial past. The port, also known by its one-time name Ujung Pandang, was part of the Dutch East India Company from 1699 the early 1800s, and then as a part of the Netherlands Indies (or Dutch East Indies) until its liberation after WWII. View less Street signs follow the traditional European alphabet, so any visitor not versed in the city’s official language of Makassarese needn’t worry about getting lost! Fort Rotterdam on the western coast of the city is perhaps Makassar’s most iconic landmark. It was from here that trades between Holland and Indonesia was struck and the fort has played a large role in Makassar’s development. Originally named Benteng or Fort Jumpandang, the fort was built in 1545, but has been expanded many times over its long history. Because of the fort’s enormity, it became Indonesia’s centre for stockpiling spices prior to their dispatch to Europe. The building is unmissable – one stroll down the (very pleasant) boulevard will take you right to its gates. If you feel the call of the wild while in Makassar, fear not, as the Bantimurung Bulusaraung National Park is just 50 kilometres away. The limestone hills, steep karts walls and tropical heat have made the park an ideal breeding ground for butterflies. The park is also home to an immense 15 x 20 metre waterfall that is said to “lift the spirits of all who see it”. Next to the waterfall is Goa Mimpi or The Dream Cave, which has millennia old cave art.

Komba Island07:00 - 14:00

On the approach to Pulau Komodo, a tiny island just 36 km (22 miles) long and 16 km (9 miles) across at its widest point, it's hard to imagine that this is the home of the fearsome dragons described by late-19th-century explorers. The island, in the Indonesian region of Nusa Tenggara, lies between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores at the heart of the Komodo National Park, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New7Wonders of Nature. At first look, steep hillsides of parched, golden grasses slide down into topaz bays covered in glass-clear waters, and white-sand beaches hem quiet shorelines. But then you remember that this innocent-looking island is inhabited by 13-foot-long, 220-pound ora, as Komodo dragons are known locally. Don't be frightened: Although stories of people disappearing run rampant, a trip here is quite safe—as long as you stay with a park guide.While Komodo dragons are the main attraction, several other large species also reside here. Dark-brown deer and small buffalo nibble the grasses of the high plains, macaques peer through the trees, and wild pigs crash through the underbrush. More than 150 types of birds also inhabit the island, including cockatoos, imperial pigeons, sea eagles, and mound-building megapodes. Offshore in the marine reserve, you might spot dolphins, dugong (a relative of the manatee), sea turtles, manta rays, and even whales, as well as more than 1,000 species of fish.Lodging on Pulau Komodo was nonexistent until 2012, when a modest, eco-friendly resort and diving club opened, providing a rare opportunity for scuba divers and snorkelers to explore this pristine habitat's extensive coral reefs and extraordinary marine life. Travelers can also find comfortable lodging and a convenient base from which to explore the many natural wonders of the Komodo National Park in Labuan Bajo, on the island of Flores (East Nusa Tenggara).

Benoa, Baliundefined - 17:00

Bali really is as alluring as everyone says. This island, slightly bigger than Delaware, has it all: beaches, volcanoes, terraced rice fields, forests, renowned resorts, surfing, golf, and world-class dive sites. But what sets Bali apart from other nearby tropical destinations is Balinese tradition, and villagers dedicated to celebrating it. The hundreds of temples, dances, rituals, and crafts linked to their ancient Hindu faith aren't a show for tourists, but a living, breathing culture in which visitors are warmly received by the Balinese, who cherish their own identities.

Singapore

The main island of Singapore is shaped like a flattened diamond, 42 km (26 miles) east to west and 23 km (14 miles) north to south. Near the northern peak is the causeway leading to West Malaysia—Kuala Lumpur is less than four hours away by car. It is at the southern foot where you will find most of the city-state’s action, with its gleaming office towers, working docks, and futuristic "supertrees," which are solar-powered and serve as vertical gardens. Offshore are Sentosa and over 60 smaller islands, most uninhabited, that serve as bases for oil refining or as playgrounds and beach escapes from the city. To the east is Changi International Airport, connected to the city by metro, bus, and a tree-lined parkway. Of the island's total land area, more than half is built up, with the balance made up of parkland, farmland, plantations, swamp areas, and rain forest. Well-paved roads connect all parts of the island, and Singapore city has an excellent, and constantly expanding, public transportation system. The heart of Singapore's history and its modern wealth are in and around the Central Business District. The area includes the skyscrapers in the Central Business District, the 19th-century Raffles Hotel, the convention centers of Marina Square, on up to the top of Ft. Canning. Although most of old Singapore has been knocked down to make way for the modern city, most colonial landmarks have been preserved in the CBD, including early-19th-century buildings designed by the Irish architect George Coleman.
