Five, four, three, two, one! The countdown is on Down Under for the most uplifting New Year kickoff. This aspirational tour of Australia and New Zealand gets the party started with a celebratory cruise on Sydney Harbor complete with beats, bites, and bubbly – and one of the world’s most famous fireworks displays. The colorful sights keep coming for 21 days as you snorkel over the rainbows of coral at the Great Barrier Reef, savor an Outback barbecue in Australia’s fiery red desert, and delight in the kaleidoscope of blossoms at Melbourne’s famous Fitzroy Gardens. Say farewell to the koalas, kangaroos, and other party animals as the festivities continue in New Zealand with a breathtaking cruise through the thundering waterfalls of Milford Sound, a silent boat ride through the glowworm-lit Waitomo Caves, a traditional cooked-beneath-the-ground hot stone Hangi dinner in Rotorua, and a high-in-the-sky farewell celebration atop Auckland’s rotating Sky Tower.
Did you know the koala sleeps an average of 20 hours a day? End your trip with a relaxing 3-night Monograms independent vacation in Fiji, including a flight from Auckland to Nadi, Fiji, transfers to/from your resort on the Coral Coast, first-class accommodations, breakfast daily, and the guidance and assistance of an expert Local Host®. Sightseeing with a Local Guide includes a jet-boat cruise on the Sigatoka River and a visit to a Fijian village with lunch.
All of this and much more—including a New Year’s Eve cruise on Sydney Harbour with fireworks at midnight—are included on this once-in-a-lifetime tour through Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji!
