Sydney to Auckland Package
Day 1 - Sydney, Australia Sydney is the heart of New South Wales and the state's capital. A bustling centre for industry and business and a major world port, it boasts 3.5 million inhabitants. Spreading over some 670 square miles (1,735 square km), the city seems to stretch as far as the eye can see to the west, north and south. Where Sydney's metropolitan area ends, the wide-open bush of New South Wales begins. Sydney is located roughly the same distance from the equator as San Diego, California, and enjoys an equally superb sunny climate. Its beautiful harbour is studded with bays and inlets and crowned by the billowing sails of the incomparable Opera House.
Day 2 - At Sea
Day 3 - Melbourne, Australia Melbourne is about the same size as Sydney, but there the similarity ends. Where Sydney is a jumble of hills and inlets, Melbourne spreads over a flat plain. Its pace, steadfast and sedate, contrasts with Sydney's upbeat and brassy lifestyle. Tree-shaded parks and gardens, a quiet bay and a proud stateliness become this capital of culture and the arts. Grand municipal buildings and splendid Victorian edifices, which sprang up in the wake of the gold rush, stand proudly along broad avenues.
Day 4 - At Sea
Day 5 - Hobart (Tasmania), Australia Hobart is a small, unspoiled bastion of European lifestyle in the Southern Pacific. Dangling like a pendant south of Australia's mainland, the tiny island of Tasmania is one of the country's most fascinating tourist destinations for overseas visitors and a favorite holiday retreat for Australians. Beautifully situated at the wide expanse of the Derwent River, Hobart's green- and red-tin-roofed timber houses climb up the lower slopes of Mount Wellington. It is a city focused on the water; the center is only a few minutes' walk from the waterfront, where fresh seafood can be bought directly from fishing boats, and the yachting crowd gathers at old dockside pubs.

Day 10 - Port Chalmer (Dunedin) At the head of one of New Zealand’s loveliest harbours lies gracious, dignified Dunedin. It was envisioned by its Scottish founders as the “Edinburgh of the South”. The city boasts a wealth of fine Victorian and Edwardian buildings, complete with spires, gables and gargoyles. Its Scottish heritage is evoked in street names and the sturdy appeal of its handsome stone buildings. Dunedin’s unique charm prompted one of its most famous visitors, Mark Twain, to write, “The people here are Scots. They stopped here on their way to heaven, thinking they had arrived.” True to its heritage, Dunedin boasts the country’s only kilt maker and whisky distillery, as well as a statue of Scottish poet Robert Burns in the heart of the city.
Day 11 - Christchurch (Lyttelton), New Zealand Lyttelton, South Island's leading port, is connected to Christchurch by road and rail tunnels. Wooden houses cling to steep streets above the harbor, bustling with cargo vessels, freighters, sailing yachts and sightseeing launches. Several 19th-century churches add to the town's historic attractions. The Canterbury pilgrims, who arrived in four shiploads at Lyttelton in 1850, made a historic trek across the Port Hills to establish Christchurch. Today, walkers still enjoy the old Bridle Path trail. Hundreds of modern-day pilgrims make the nostalgic hike between Lyttelton and Christchurch annually on the Sunday nearest December 16.
Day 12 - Picton Only a narrow stretch of water separates North and South Island, but the differences between the two entities could not be more obvious - South Island with its wild beauty contrasting sharply with the more sedate landscapes of North Island.
Day 13 - At Sea
Day 14 - Tauranga, New Zealand Tauranga is the principal city of the Bay of Plenty. The founders of Tauranga, 19th-century missionaries, left a legacy of well-planned parks and gardens for today's residents and visitors to enjoy.
Day 15 - Auckland, New Zealand Sprawling across a narrow isthmus, Auckland and its far-flung suburbs are separated by two magnificent harbors. At the city's downtown doorstep lies sparkling Waitemata Harbour, separated from the Hauraki Gulf and Pacific Ocean by Rangitoto Island. West of the city, the shallow, turquoise waters of Manukau Harbour funnel into the Tasman Sea. Protruding from Auckland's landscape are the cones of numerous extinct volcanoes.
