A comprehensive three-week tour of both Australia and New Zealand. Participants can choose to join part or all of the tour – just Australia, or Sydney and New Zealand, or just New Zealand.
We will start our tour in Melbourne, meeting the local wildlife and spending Shabbat with the Jewish community. We will fly to Cairns to see the spectacular landscapes of Queensland, the Rain Forest, and the Great Barrier Reef. Next stop is the great city of Sydney, staying at the deluxe Sheraton Park Hotel and exploring the city, the harbor, and the Featherdale Wildlife Park.
The second leg of our tour will commence in Wellington, New Zealand, where we will be joined by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks. Our New Zealand tour will include Auckland and surroundings, the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves; a visit to the Hobbiton Movie set of the Lord of the Rings; Rotorua, famous for its geothermal activity and where aspects of the Maori traditions can still be experienced; flight to Wellington, the Capital of New Zealand; sailing to the South Island through the Cook Straits on the Interislander ferry to Picton, and on to Christchurch where we will board the Tranz Alpine Train crossing the spectacular Southern Alps – a journey of 224 kilometers that takes 4 and a half hours; a 3-night stay including Shabbat at the magnificent Te Waonui Forest Retreat in Franz Josef, where we will experience walks on the famous glacier and the surrounding, exciting valley; finally on to Queenstown, quietly becoming one of the most popular and beautiful resorts in the world, and our base for exploring Milford Sound.
