Visit a village buried by a volcanic eruption and captured in a moment of time - a fascinating yet moving experience.

DAY 3 - GISBORNE
Considered the unofficial "Chardonnay Capital of New Zealand," Gisborne's winery trail is a must for wine enthusiasts. The region is also one of the sunniest places in the country and one of the first places in the world to see the sun rise. The North Island 's east coast city is known for its delicious cuisine, wonderful surf beaches and an ideal location to learn more about local Maori culture by visiting a Marae (meeting place), Maori village or other attractions. East Cape Lighthouse - the eastern most point of the North Island - offers a taste of scenic countryside and rugged coast.
DAY 4 - WELLINGTON

Shopping opportunities are plentiful, with arts and crafts, jewellery, fine woolens and leather goods on offer.
DAY 5 - LYTTELTON
Just 20 minutes from the centre of Christchurch city, Lyttelton is a charming port town with a long history. Back in 1850, the first European settlers landed in Christchurch before heading over the Port Hills to establish their new home. Today, Lyttelton is accessed by an impressive road tunnel. It's a vibrant town, home to a small community of 3,000 residents, filled with bohemian artists, cafés, restaurants and unique shops to discover.
DAY 6 - DUNEDIN
This dramatic South Island coastal town offers a mix of unique natural beauty and fascinating history. Rare, yellow-eyed penguins, fur seals and the Royal Albatross all call Dunedin home. Equally impressive is the Victorian and Edwardian architecture that dates from its days as a gold rush town. New Zealand's only castle sits high above the city and offers sweeping views from its famous gardens. Shop for a locally made souvenir, with crafts, artwork, wool and leather items being popular.
DAY 7 - CRUISE DOUBTFUL SOUND, DUSKY SOUND & MILFORD SOUND
DAY 8 & 9 - AT SEA
DAY 10 - MELBOURNE
Once the richest city in the world thanks to a gold rush, Melbourne is Australia's cultural capital with striking architecture, chic galleries and boutiques. Wave at a wallaby or get close to a koala at a wildlife park. Feel closer to the land on a ride on the Puffing Billy steam locomotive through the mountains and countryside. Back in the city, explore a different culture and visit Chinatown - the oldest one in the West.
DAY 11 - BURNIE (TASMANIA)
A community of artisans on the northwest coast of Tasmania, Burnie has long a history as a community that makes things, with locally crafted European-style cheeses, fine papers, ceramics and single-malt whisky. Surrounded by accessible wilderness areas, in Burnie you can still get a glimpse of little penguins and the platypus, a duck-billed mammal, in the wild. The vibrant shopping district spills onto the beach where you can sit down at a café and watch the world slow down for a little while.
DAY 12 - EDEN
The town's name reflects what you will indeed find in Eden - a beautiful natural wonderland. Situated on the rugged coastline of Australia's New South Wales, Eden is nestled among national parks, wilderness areas and enticing beaches. It's considered one of Australia's best locations for oyster farming, so bring your appetite. Eden and its surrounding landscapes offer an abundance of outdoor activities on the water and by land.
