Sail with Daniel Peterson as he enlightens and uplifts our group with his informational lectures on sea days. Join our private tours at the ports to make the most of this incredible journey. At the Eden Killer Whale Museum, see the skeleton of Old Tom and then enjoy the view at the overlook of Disaster Bay. Visit the Burnie Regional Museum and wander a replica of Federation Street and see how ordinary people lived more than 100 years ago. The soul of Melbourne is the vibrant Queen Victoria Market, but the highlight of our visit is Healesville Sanctuary to see native Australian animals in their natural habitat. Visit Larnach Castle, the Toitú Otago Settlers Museum and the Royal Albatross Centre in Dunedin. From Lyttelton, we head to the International Antarctic Center to experience an ‘Antarctic Storm’ followed by a visit to Hagley Park—home of the Christchurch Botanical Gardens. Along with its beautiful city center, Wellington offers Te Papa—New Zealand’s National MuseumZealandia and the Karori Sanctuary. Learn about the earthquake that destroyed the city of Napier in 1931 and discover the unique Art Deco style they used to rebuild this unique city. In Tauranga, fully absorb the most active geothermal activity of boiling mud pools and geysers. Savor onboard evening shows, endless gourmet delights, and private lectures from Dan. Join our adventurous LDS group as we create memories to last a lifetime.
