VOYAGES ARE BETTER IN THE SOUTH—SOUTH PACIFIC, THAT IS—WITH AZAMARA CLUB CRUISES®.
If we said to you that we’re headed out on a day trip so pack your “thongs” and “jandals”, the first question you’d probably ask is, “Exactly where in the world are we going?” And if the reply was, “We’re going to a beach down under,” would that help clarify things?
Because even though Australia and New Zealand are both countries down under that date back a relatively young 200 years, share a love of cricket and netball, and have similar flags, they often diverge in wonderfully different ways—not the least of which is their respective names for the word “flip-flops”.
For instance, did you know that New Zealand is an island (well, two islands actually), while the 26-times-larger Australia is a continent? Or that Kiwis will say that Aussies eat “feesh and cheeps”, while Australians believe that New Zealanders like “fush and chups”? And don’t even get us started about the differences between Australian Rules Football versus Rugby Union versus Rugby League…or which is better: vegemite or marmite?
So if you’d like the insider track on what goes on in the lands down under, come cruise with us to Australia and New Zealand. We might even throw a few shrimp on the barbie along the way!
G’day mate and welcome to the land of koalas, kangaroos, and platypuses, where the wildlife is as spectacularly different as the scenery. Whether it’s the Great Barrier Reef, the great outback, or the Great Ocean Road, Australia features some of the most incredible wonders in nature.
We’ll be traveling from the northern reaches of Darwin to the southern sights of Tasmania, with lots of stops in between—including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Cairns—with plenty of time for eco-adventures, underwater exploring, hiking through rain forests, and of course, sampling some award-winning wines throughout the journey. Fair dinkum!
They say that New Zealand is home to 3,000,000 people, 60,000,000 sheep, and a place called Middle Earth. We say that “the Land of the Long White Cloud” is an absolute marvel of outdoor adventures, cultural experiences, and a MUST visit on any world travelers’ bucket list.
Where else can you go jet-boat riding, heli-skiing, bungy jumping, and white-water rafting—all in the span of one day? Or watch the traditional Maori haka dance performed at the countries’ most historic sight? Or taste your way through the New World home of Sauvignon blanc, see a kiwi bird in the wild, and have pavlova for dessert? Only in New Zealand, sweet as, bro!
