AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

"The lands "down under" provide a true symphony of wonders that blend the prehistoric landscapes and wondrously weird wildlife of Australia with the staggering scenery and rich Maori traditions of New Zealand.  Discover all that these regions have to show us... strange egg-laying mammals and endearing marsupials... cosmopolitan coastal cities and tropical rainforests... glacier-hewn fjords and dramatic canyons best explored by jet-boat." - TAUCK
