PRE - SCENIC BLUE MOUNTAINS - 2024-25

Travel two hours from Sydney to the magical, World Heritage, Blue Mountains. Enjoy stunning vistas and breathtaking scenery as it unfolds around you when you visit Scenic World, Mt. Tomah Botanical Gardens and King’s Tableland. Also enjoy an informative and easy hike with a National Park Ranger who will relay Dreamtime stories of the Aboriginals who first settled in this area.

DAY 1

Upon arrival to Sydney International Airport, you will be greeted by a private chauffeur who will transfer you to your hotel in the heart of the Sydney city centre.

Check in is at 3:00pm. Although every effort will be made to have rooms available before this time, this cannot be guaranteed. Guests may leave their luggage with the bell captain and use the facilities of the hotel or venture out into the city should your room not be available upon arrival. Alternatively, guests may purchase an extra night to guarantee a ready room upon arrival.

Meals are on your own today.

DAY 2

Following a hearty breakfast at your hotel you will begin your adventure to the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park. Your guide will meet you this morning in the lobby of your hotel, and give you an introduction to the best of what the Blue Mountains has to offer.

Your first stop of the day is at Calmsley Hill; a working farm also home to Kangaroos, Emus, Wombats and Koalas. Enjoy morning tea here and time to wander at your leisure.

From Calmsley Hill, continue to ascend the Blue Mountains via the highway. At the western edge of the Blue Mountains, Kings Tableland affords one of the best views in the Blue Mountains and is home to Wentworth Falls. At the falls, your guide will take you on a 30-minute walk with stunning views of one of the most iconic views of the Jamison Valley.

From here, it is then on to Scenic World, renowned for providing the ultimate Blue Mountains adventure - from native birdlife and mountain fresh air, to breathtaking views of the World Heritage-listed region including the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Jamison Valley. Your options here include taking a journey on the world's steepest incline railway, glide between clifftops on the glass-floored Skyway suspended 270 metres in the air, descend into the ancient Jamison Valley by Cableway or explore Jurassic rainforest along the 2.4 kilometres walkway - the longest boardwalk in Australia.

Rejoining your vehicle, continue towards Mt. Victoria and take in the views of the Bells Line of Road before enjoying a stroll in the beautiful English styled gardens at Mount Wilson. Sitting at 850 meters above sea level, the Mt. Tomah Botanical Gardens are the most elevated gardens in Australia.

Here you will first enjoy a relaxing one course light lunch with beverage of choice. After lunch, you can enjoy an expertly curated walk through the gardens and interpretation center.

After this amazing day, you will arrive at the historic Carrington Hotel. Set on top of the mountain ridges of Katoomba, this Grand Old Lady of the west has been welcoming guests to the Blue Mountains for decades.

The evening is at your leisure and dinner is on your own.

DAY 3

Begin your day with breakfast at your hotel prior to departing for a visit to the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park, home of the famous Three Sisters in Katoomba.

Upon arrival you will be joined by a Ranger who will share stories and explain the ancient traditions of one of the world’s oldest living cultures. You will even have a chance to taste the local Bushtucker. For those that want to stretch their legs, you can join the ranger for a short hike and take in the sights and smells of the Australian bush. Learn about bush foods and medicines and even taste the local Bushtucker which was used as sustenance by the Indigenous and Aboriginal Australians.

Return to your hotel via the picturesque town of Leura where you will have some time to explore the village at leisure before arriving back at the Carrington Hotel in the late afternoon. The evening is at your leisure and dinner is on your own.

Day 4

Enjoy your final breakfast at the hotel before boarding your vehicle for the journey back to Sydney and your awaiting ship. En-route, travel past the beautiful orchards of Bilpin and Kurrajong and as you travel down the Mountains, phenomenal views of Sydney will unveil themselves.

PRE - SYDNEY ICONS

Explore the must-see icons of Sydney, including the famed opera house, Royal Botanic Garden and Sydney Tower, all of which will reveal the heart and soul of this extraordinary city.

DAY 1

After flying into Sydney, you will transfer to the Four Seasons Hotel, where you will spend the next three evenings. The remainder of the day will be at your leisure, allowing you to do whatever you wish. You might settle in at the hotel or consult with the hospitality desk for suggestions on what to see nearby. Lunch and dinner will be on your own.

DAY 2

Following breakfast at the hotel, you will drive through the city in a luxury coach, stopping for photos of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Still, the best and most historical vantage point is from Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, a stone seat that convicts hand-carved out of a rock ledge in 1810 so that the governor’s wife could enjoy the ultimate harbor view.

You will then travel to the Royal Botanic Garden, the oldest botanic garden and scientific institution in Australia, for an Aboriginal Heritage Tour. As you walk the grounds, an Aboriginal guide will describe how the indigenous Cadigal people used plants for various purposes. You many also get the chance to sample bush foods.

Continuing on to the observation deck of Sydney Tower, you will enjoy a sky-high 360-degree view of the city and beyond to the Blue Mountains. Once the tallest building in Australia, the tower soars over the city, making it easy to identify key landmarks below.

Free time follows at beautiful Bondi Beach, a stretch of golden sand that is one of Sydney’s most visited beaches, especially among surfers. While exploring, you may wish to dine on your own at one of the restaurants that rims the beach.

One more stop will be made at The Gap on the return to the hotel. The views of the Tasman Sea from atop this oceanside cliff are spectacular.

You will then spend the evening at the hotel at your leisure with dinner on your own.

DAY 3

Following breakfast at the hotel, you will drive to the Taronga Zoo Sydney for an Aussie Animal encounter with indigenous species.

You will then proceed to the Sydney Opera House for an exclusive tour, during which you will learn about its extraordinary design and why UNESCO deemed it a World Heritage site. The opera house is so iconic that it is impossible to think of Sydney without this cultural center coming to mind.

As the hotel isn’t far off, you can choose to walk back on your own and explore other attractions on the way. The evening will be spent cruising through Sydney Harbour and enjoying a sumptuous dinner. The illuminated city will look absolutely radiant as you sail along the coast.

Upon returning to the hotel, the remainder of the evening will be at your leisure.

DAY 4

Following breakfast at the hotel, you will enjoy free time until check out. First Fleet Park is an easy walk away and offers one last look at beautiful Sydney Harbour.

In time, you will transfer to the port and board your cruise ship.

One of the liveliest, must-see cities of the Pacific Rim, Sydney humbly began life as a British penal colony in 1788. Among the colorful characters in its early history was William Bligh of Mutiny on the Bounty fame who was deposed as governor during the Rum Rebellion of 1808. In 1852, with the discovery of gold in the interior, Sydney became a thriving port of the Victorian Empire. Today, Sydney looks to the future, its skyline crowned by the graceful billowing sails of its famed Opera House. Visitors can get a glimpse of the past along the narrow, twisting streets of the Rocks, Sydney’s restored historical district and for the adventurous, the Sydney bridge climb will reward you with panoramic views of the city and harbor. Excursions can reveal the spectacular, untamed beauty of the Blue Mountains with a ride on the worlds steepest perpendicular railway; or get up close and personal with Australia’s charming wildlife at the Koala Park Sanctuary, then end your day with a refreshing stop at a traditional Aussie pub.

This charming city lies at the head of a fiord-like inlet and is surrounded by seven hills. In the early days, Dunedin was the largest and wealthiest city in the country, thanks mainly to the gold fields. It has been responsible for many firsts: the first to have gaslight, water mains, hydro power and steam trams. Discover the rugged, beautiful Otago Peninsula, filled with geological wonders, and gaze in awe at the great albatross with its ten-foot wingspan. Keep an eye out for fur seals on the rocks and perhaps some yellow-eyed penguins. Visit Larnach Castle, a historic 19th-century property surrounded by gardens and splendid views. It is often said that Dunedin is the most perfectly preserved Victorian City anywhere. Explore historic Dunedin with its splendid Victorian and Edwardian stone buildings.

The "Bay of Islands" was how Captain Cook described this area two centuries ago and the simplicity of his name masks the diversity of its charms. The Bay of Islands is the finest Maritime Park in the country with 144 islands, secluded bays and abundance of marine life. It is one of the most popular fishing, sailing and tourist destinations in the country, and has been renowned internationally for its big-game fishing since author Zane Grey publicized it in the 1930s.

Auckland, “The City Of Sails”, is spread over a narrow isthmus between the sparkling waters of the Waitemata and Manukau Harbours on New Zealand’s North Island. It earns its sobriquet from having more boats per capita than any other city in the world. The first settlers here were the Maori, and are still a vibrant component of its cosmopolitan population. Auckland offers the visitor all the amenities of a world-class city. Browse the shops of Queen Street or the Parnell area with its galleries and boutiques in quaintly restored Victorian buildings. For a magnificent panorama of the city travel to Mount Eden, the city’s highest point, or visit the Skytower for loftier views. Minutes from downtown you can relax on a black sand beach, or explore the America’s Cup Yachting Village. Further afield there are the spectacular pine-clad Waitakere Mountains, the amazing Waitomo Glowworm Caves and the verdant vineyards of Kumeu River Wines.
