South Pacific: New Zealand and Australia Voyage

Azamara

Departing from Auckland, you begin with an overnight sail to the Bay of Islands, a subtropical region renowned for its Māori history, tranquil towns, and pristine beaches. Then, it's on to Tauranga, where you can learn even more about the Māori, visit the nearby geothermal wonders of Rotorua, or tour a Lord of the Rings/Hobbiton movie set in Matamata. Enjoy a late-night stay in Napier, famed for its UNESCO Heritage status, Art Deco style, and the nearby Cape Kidnappers. Your next three days will take you from New Zealand's North Island to the South Island, as you take in the capital city attractions of Wellington with a late-night stay, followed by another late-night stay in the creative hub of Nelson, where countless galleries, unique shops, the Nelson Classic Cars Museum, and Abel Tasman National Park await. Then, it's time to taste your way through the legendary wines of the Marlborough region in Picton. The journey continues in the lovely English-inspired city of Christchurch, home to Cathedral Square, the Canterbury countryside, and punting on the Avon River. Then it's on to the "Edinburgh of the South", Dunedin. A sail through the spectacular Milford Sound is followed by two luxurious days at sea en route to Hobart, Tasmania.

The city is built on a narrow isthmus between two harbours, the Waitemata to the East and the Manukau to the West.

Day 7Port of CallPictonArrival 8:00amDeparture 4:00pm

Overview

The bustling port of Picton is the terminal for inter-island ferries, and gateway to the ‘Mainland’, the South Island’s self-proclaimed nickname.
Picton is 30 km north of Blenheim at the head of the picturesque Queen Charlotte Sound. The town dates from 1827 when John Guard established a whaling station in the sounds, and soon after the port began to ship produce from the Waiau Plains.
Today it serves mainly as a transit centre for Cook Strait travellers, and boasts a wide choice of accommodation and fine restaurants with delicious seafood fresh from the sounds. There are indoor/outdoor cafés on the waterfront and a good selection of arts, crafts and souvenirs. The placid waters of the Queen Charlotte Sound are a playground for all manner of water sports. Launches, yachts, powerboats and sea kayaks can be chartered or hired. Fishing, diving and scenic trips are available and water-taxi services run on demand. A regular shuttle takes trampers to various points on the beautiful Queen Charlotte Walkway, which is one of New Zealand’s Great Walks. The 67 km walk starts at Ship’s Cove, which was Captain Cook’s base in New Zealand on his three voyages of discovery, and ends at Anakiwa near Picton.
Local sights begin on Picton’s attractive foreshore, where visitors can enjoy splendid views up the harbour from picnic benches set among the palm trees. Picton Museum has relics from the whaling era and a fascinating old sailing ship, the Edwin Fox, which is being restored. The ship was built in 1853 for the British East India Company and is the sole survivor of the original immigrant ships on the New Zealand run. Another fascinating old ship is the coastal scow Echo, which plied the Wellington to Picton run many years ago. To see this craft and the maritime museum tourists can follow an interesting walking track from the Picton Marina to Bob’s Bay.
Picton is an open door to a whole new experience of unspoilt nature, in these tranquil waters, where magical hideaways and private bays can be reached by water-taxi.

Day 8Port of CallChristchurchArrival 7:00amDeparture 5:00pm

Overview

Located on the east coast of the South Island, Christchurch - just like the rest of New Zealand - is a city of contrasts. It is a place where its residents continue to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle amidst a natural environment world-renowned for its beauty. A growing cosmopolitan ambience also adds a touch of excitement without overt flashiness. Everywhere there is an understated elegance that speaks of times gone by and promises a future where anything is possible. It really is the ‘city that shines’. Internationally famed ‘The Garden City’, Christchurch’s well-established expansive parks and public gardens owe much to the planning and foresight of the city’s founding fathers. The centrally-located 161 hectare Hagley Park, the Botanic Gardens, the four leafy inner-city avenues, Victoria Square and spectacular gardens such as Mona Vale on the banks of the River Avon bear testimony to this legacy. It is a vision which is embraced and perpetuated today by proud residents right throughout the city. The Garden City Festival of Flowers held in February each year is certainly one of the most popular festivals on the annual calendar...a time when the city is a blaze of colour. In 1996, Christchurch was acknowledged as the outstanding garden city from 620 international entries and in 1997, was judged Overall Winner of Major Cities in the Nations in Bloom International Competition to become ‘Garden City of the World’! Maori oral history suggests that people first inhabited the Canterbury area about a thousand years ago. These first inhabitants were moa-hunting tribes and these were followed by the Waitaha who are thought to have migrated from the east coast of the North Island in the 16th century. This migration was joined by the Ngati Mamoe and Ngai Tahu and continued until about 1830. The first European landed in Canterbury in 1815, 45 years after Captain James Cook sighted what he named "Banks Island", later found to be a peninsula. In 1840 the first Europeans settled on the plains and whaling ships were operating out of Lyttelton by 1850. During 1850-1851 the first organised groups of English settlers, the founders of Christchurch, arrived on the 'first four ships' into Lyttelton Harbour. Christchurch became a city by Royal Charter on July 31, 1856, making it officially the oldest established city in New Zealand. In 1893 New Zealand women achieved a first in the world when they won the right to vote. This significant event was honoured in 1993 when the Kate Sheppard memorial, a commemoration to Women's Suffrage was unveiled on 19th September 1993. Canterbury's economy was built on primary products and Canterbury has long been recognised as living "off the sheep's back". Although its economic beginnings were in refrigerated sheep and dairy meats and in other dairy products, Canterbury now has a diversified regional economy with growth across a range of "new economy" sectors. There is something different to see and do within one or two hours’ drive of Christchurch, in any direction. To the east lie the open ocean and Banks Peninsula, featuring sheltered bays, sandy beaches, bush clad valleys, rocky coastline and high, wild places. Boating, tramping, a visit to the wineries and the French settlers’ harbourside village of Akaroa are key peninsula attractions. To the west, past fertile plains and braided rivers, are forested foothills and lakes. Beyond them lie the tallest mountains in Australasia, the Southern Alps, strung out parallel to the coastline. Mountain passes with delightful alpine villages break the almost impenetrable divide and deliver the traveller to the west coast. There is a choice of western routes and plenty of ski areas on the way. A journey north reveals green rolling hills, forests and long, empty beaches, with the whale-watching centre of Kaikoura about 2 hours’ drive away, whilst an excursion to the south passes through farmland and crosses two more of Canterbury’s pristine rivers, ideal for fishing in, whitewater rafting or kayaking down. Mt Hutt, the premier commercial ski area close to the city, lies to the south west. A day off-piste here gives opportunity for jet boating, fishing, horse riding or a round of golf.

Day 9Port of CallDunedinArrival 7:30amDeparture 4:00pm

Overview

Dunedin is a great place to live for people of all ages and lifestyle. Situated on the south eastern coast of New Zealand’s South Island, capital of the Otago Region, a city by the sea, surrounded by beautiful lofty hills, gracious distinguished buildings and white sandy beaches is Dunedin – a city to intrigue and enchant.

Not long after the settlers’ arrival gold was discovered in Otago and the then small town of Dunedin become the commercial capital of New Zealand and the centre for the nations wealth.
Today, Dunedin is foremost a University City with some 10% of its (approximately) 115,000 population attending the tertiary institutions.
