Cruising Down Under – Westbound

2016 Prices From $12,340 plus on-tour air for 19 Days - Tauck Cruising

NEW FOR 2016! Aboriginal legend has it that Australia was created in Dreamtime. Maori gods are credited with making New Zealand into a two-island paradise of stunning natural beauty. So it is only fitting that Tauck’s new 19-day adventure in the lands “down under” includes a dream cruise aboard one of the dreamiest yachts in the South Pacific seas. Blending land stays in Auckland, Queenstown, Cairns, Melbourne and Sydney with 9 nights aboard Le Soléal as you cruise to New Zealand’s natural gems, this enchanted trip includes Tauck’s signature sightseeing, exclusive cultural experiences and included shore excursions to ensure a g’day, every day.
