NEW FOR 2015! 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 is introducing a new 21-day dream cruise to the enchanted lands down under aboard one of the dreamiest yachts in the South Pacific seas. Blending land stays in Sydney, Cairns, Melbourne and Auckland with 12 idyllic nights aboard L’Austral as you cruise to New Zealand’s natural gems, this Australia and New Zealand cruise adventure includes Tauck’s signature sightseeing and exclusive cultural experiences to ensure a g-day, every day.
