    Australia’s secret capital sets pulses racing: the striking Opera House*, Harbour Bridge and the artists’ district of Paddington give the city its endearing charms.

    Melbourne, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Melbourne/Australia
    If you want to get to know Melbourne in all its diversity, it will take you just 40 seconds to ascend to the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower*: the view extends from Port Phillip Bay and as far as the surrounding Dandenong Ranges. To carry you through these ancient eucalyptus forests, you can take a ride on the nostalgic Puffing Billy*, and drink a toast to one of the Yarra Valley vineyards you will encounter along the way.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Burnie/Tasmania, 9.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Burnie/Tasmania/Australia
    Spectacular mountain peaks, lakes as smooth as a mirror, dense moorland forests – find out for yourself just how unique Tasmania’s landscape is when you follow part of the Overland Track through Cradle Mountain National Park*. One of Australia’s most important cool-temperate rainforests can be found at Tarkine National Park*. Breathe in the fresh air as you hike* and follow the rushing noises until you reach the Philosopher’s Falls.

    A panoramic trip* to the peak of Mount Wellington will reveal a fabulous view across Tasmania’s capital. Explore the port area of Hobart by somewhat unconventional means – in a kayak. Paddling alongside the quay, you can observe the skyline from the water, and to give you an extra boost, we will pass you some fish and chips – right there in your kayak*. Or leave civilisation behind you and explore Tasmania’s untouched wilderness in a propeller-driven plane*.

    Lyttelton (Christchurch), 6.30 – 19.00 hrs

    Lyttelton (Christchurch)/New Zealand
    For many immigrants, this small harbour was their first destination. For you, it is the starting point for a scenic journey on the TranzAlpine Train up to Arthur’s Pass*. From these giddy heights, you can choose to return to the fertile plains, where you can visit a typical sheep farm, or alternatively use an adventurous mode of travel to explore the region – ride in an all-terrain vehicle and then a jetboat on the Waimakariri River.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Wellington, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Wellington/New Zealand
    You will get your first glimpse of New Zealand’s vibrant capital from the top of Mount Victoria*. And you can get an even closer introduction to Wellington* when you visit the Te Papa Tongarewa National Museum. The country’s entire unique natural history is reflected in Zealandia Wildlife Sanctuary*, a place that has developed over a period of 80 million years.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Napier, 8.30 – 19.00 hrs

    Napier/New Zealand
    One of the most beautiful art deco cities in the world, Napier is a delight to those who admire architecture, yet it also has much more to offer. A tour in all-terrain buses will bring you to Cape Kidnappers*, where the youngsters in the massive gannet colony are just fledging. Or would you like to sample a drop or two of the excellent wines produced in New Zealand’s oldest wine region*?

On White Island*, the earth’s interior is also impressive: take a helicopter flight over the volcano, parts of which are still active.
