    The 10-day Discover Australia takes travellers on a relaxing trip through some of Australia’s most iconic cities. Starting with three nights in Sydney, the trip spends two nights in Ayers Rock, before ending with two nights in Cairns. Guests are treated to a catamaran cruise at the Great Barrier Reef, where they’ll get a reef education from a Local Expert and can choose to snorkel amongst the vibrant ocean life. In Sydney, guests visit the famous Rocks Markets in the historic district, tour the Opera House with a Local Expert and board a Captain Cook Sunset Cruise for a delicious dinner. Heading off to the picturesque Ayers Rock, guests will stay at Trafalgar’s Authentic Accommodation, Ayers Rock Resort, and wake up to the view of Uluru as their backdrop. Guests will also enjoy a trip to Kata Tjuta which are 36 massive domes of red conglomerate rock, an iconic feat of nature in the Northern Territory. In Cairns, travellers have plenty of free time and can also pick from a range of Trafalgar’s Included Choice sightseeing experiences. With four incredible options to choose from, guests can visit Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, join an afternoon cruise on Cairns Harbour, check out the Cairns Tropical Zoo or visit Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures for a journey through woodlands and rainforest.

    Contrasts of New Zealand

    A 12-day journey throughout the north and south, Trafalgar’s Contrasts of New Zealand takes travellers to the most beautiful landscapes and exciting cities that the country has to offer. Starting in the north with two nights in Auckland and ending with a night in Christchurch, the trip takes guests to Rotorua, Franz Josef Glacier and Queenstown. This itinerary is filled with Local Specialties for travellers to really immerse themselves in the unique culture of New Zealand, including a visit to the Agrodome Sheep Show in Rotorua to see the art of sheep shearing, a visit to a jade factory in Hokitika and a stop at Mrs. Jones’ Orchard at Cromwell to taste New Zealand’s sumptuous stone fruit. A Be My Guest experience will take travellers to a Maori Hangi dinner at the Tamaki Family Marae in Rotorua, accompanied by local wine and followed by a concert. Guests also enjoy a breathtaking cruise of the picturesque Milford Sound, and have a day in Queenstown with Trafalgar’s Included Choice, where they can choose from a range of fun activities like a Thunder Jet ride on Lake Wakatipu, a wine tour, a round of golf or a gondola ride to the Skyline Restaurant for dinner.

    In addition to all the exciting itineraries featured in the new 2014 Australia & New Zealand brochure, guests also have the option of enjoying independent mini stays that consists of 2 to 5 day itineraries. These are suitable for travelers who are visiting friends or family in Australia but at the same time want to explore some sights; or for travellers that crave their own free time with the option of mini holidays they can enjoy at any given moment. Guests can choose trips such as ‘Sydney & the Blue Mountains, Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road’, ‘Uluru Discovery’ and many more.

    There’s also the option of day trips that consist of half day or full day excursions, to compliment a flexible itinerary. These include visits to ‘Hunter Valley Wineries’, ‘Kakadu National Park’, and ‘Port Stephens & Dolphin watching’.

    Says Lim, ‘With so many types of exciting itineraries to cater toward all travel styles, along with a weakened Aussie dollar next to the rupee there is no better time to travel to Australia & New Zealand’.
