Cruise to the Bay of Islands, a group of nearly 150 undeveloped islands that serves as a popular destination for kayaking, fishing, diving, and parasailing. Next, head to Tauranga and discover its lush parks and hidden waterfalls, or venture south to the harborside city of Rotorua, a geothermal paradise with hot springs, bubbling mud pools, and spouting geysers. In Napier, visit world-class wineries or stroll through the National Aquarium of New Zealand. Journey to Wellington, well known as the site where The Lord of the Rings was filmed. Wander the 64-acre botanical garden or pop into a chic café for a slice of pavlova, New Zealand’s national dessert. Then sail to Akaroa, a cozy fishing town distinguished by its winding streets, fine food, and serene setting. Experience the charm of Dunedin, a city overlooking the Otago Harbor that seamlessly blends nature and culture. Cruise the unforgettable fjords of Milford Sound, then head to Burnie, an artistic city on the northwest coast of Tasmania where you can look for platypus surfacing in the Fern Glade Reserve. Before ending your trip in Sydney, head to Melbourne to peruse its museums, galleries, and wineries.
