Australia-New Zealand-Fiji 2012
Our Land and Cruise Trip to Oceania
by Scott and Beverly Zimmerman
About the Book
We visited the Great Barrier Reef, where Scott went scuba diving and Beverly took a helicopter ride. We did an extended city and harbor tour of Sydney, Australia, and boarded the Diamond Princess there. We then took a cruise with stops at Melbourne, Hobart, Fiordland National Park, Dunedin, Akoroa, Tauranga, and Auckland. We then flew to Fiji, where we were met by extensive flooding due to a huge tropical depression. It was a great trip.
