Exploring Australia & New Zealand


Come join this tour-de-force of Australia and New Zealand on a 22-day journey. From Cairns, Australia to the Great Barrier Reef, where you can swim, snorkel, or view the reef from a semi-submersible vessel. We'll visit Aboriginal territory to learn about the ancient culture of the Walpiri, then watch the sun set over fabled Ayers Rock. We'll fly to New Zealand and explore Mount Cook National Park over a two-night stay and stargazing before continuing to the fjords of Milford Sound. The tour concludes in Auckland.  https://alumni.harvard.edu/travel/trips/australia-new-zealand-2019
