Top-Rated Australia & New Zealand Destinations

Sydney (Australia)
1 of 5 Australia & New Zealand Destinations

We arrived three days prior to our cruise and scheduled a two-day HOHO bus which enabled us to visit Sydney’s top attractions. Wish we had longer as there was so much to see in and around this beautiful city.
Hobart

Hobart is an awesome beautiful city, take a walk along to the botanical gardens, don't miss Salamanca especially if you are lucky enough to be there on a Saturday when the markets are on, take a cruise on the Derwent River, we took a lunch cruise, very good value, and don't forget to go up to Battery Point, see the circle houses, very grand and lovely.

Akaroa is an attractive town with the area near the tender stop filled with cafes and shops. It is pleasant enough [to walk] around and go up to the small lighthouse. The highlight of the port is a visit to The Giant's House.

East city centre access; lots to see and do; suitable for good walkers; even a Sunday is busy; well served by tourism staff and volunteers.

Maybe my favourite place, wanted to move there... beautiful seaside town, long walks around the waterways and ocean!
