Things to Do on an Australia & New Zealand Cruise with Viking Oceans

 

Explore the natural wonders of the Blue Mountains in Sydney and take in views of Jorn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House in the heart of the city. Find out why Melbourne used to be one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the world, check out the fabled island of Tasmania – which is best explored on foot – and enjoy insightful commentary describing landmarks like the scenic Otago Peninsula while on your Viking Ocean cruise to Australia and New Zealand. Find out why the following shore excursions are a must in each destination:

 


Sydney Opera House - Viking Oceans
  • Sydney Opera House and Sydney Bridge Climb (Sydney, Australia)
    In the heart of Sydney lies one of the world’s most distinctive buildings and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sydney Opera House sits in the city’s iconic harbor where the Rocks District, the historic enclave nestled in the shadow of the Sydney Harbor Bridge can be found. Stroll around for more stunning views of Sydney Cove and find your way to the summit of one of the world’s most iconic landmark bridges, Sydney Harbor Bridge. As you follow your guide up the eastern arch of the bridge, you’ll gaze over the Sydney Opera House, take in the view of the Blue Mountains to the west, and see the harbor below in all its glory.
     

 


Koalas in Australia - Viking Oceans
  • Kangaroos, Koalas and Melbourne Highlights (Melbourne, Australia)
    Arguably the most livable city in the world is home to two of Australia’s most beloved creatures living in their natural habitat. See large groups of Eastern gray Kangaroos, small wallabies and some unusual Australian birds. Drive to Fitzroy Gardens in the heart of the city to visit Cook’s Cottage, the charming family home of the English navigator who “discovered” the east coast of Australia (Captain Cook). Don’t forget to stop by the highly revered Shrine of Remembrance, one of the city’s most stunning landmarks.
     

 


Hobart, Tasmania - Viking Oceans
  • Hobart Walking Tour (Hobart, Australia)
    Hobart is the capital of Tasmania, Australia’s smallest state and home to the former penal colony of Port Arthur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Trace the colonial-era streets of the Old Town, see the famous Henry Jones IXL company and the headstone plaques along the cemetery wall in St. David’s Park. Soak in your local guide’s fascinating stories of how Tasmania’s capital became a vibrant waterfront.
     

 


Penguin in New Zealand - Viking Oceans
  • Otago Wildlife Cruise (Dunedin, New Zealand)
    The scenic Otago Peninsula is home to a protected reserve with an established colony of around 250 birds. Here, you’ll observe everything from nest building, courtship and chick rearing behaviors. Marvel as the birds soar overhead, enacting impressive aerial displays. Blue penguins, New Zealand fur seals, and Hooker’s sea lions will also make your day as you encounter the southern hemisphere's only mainland colony of albatross.
     

 


Napier, New Zealand - Viking Oceans
  • Art Deco Drive (Napier, New Zealand)
    Discover how the re-building of Napier birthed the spirit of decorative and colorful architecture dotting the cityscape in the form of art deco buildings adorning the city’s streets. Don’t forget to check out the Sunken Gardens, National Aquarium of New Zealand and the Spirit of Napier, an elegant fountain set in a small park.
     

 


Sailing in Auckland, NZ - Viking Oceans
  • Highlights of Auckland (Auckland, New Zealand)
    Do more than just sampling world-acclaimed vintages when visiting the “City of Sails”. Since Auckland is set between two stunning harbors, be sure to take in the Kiwi city’s beauty and history, enjoy sweeping views from Bastion Point and admire unspoiled natural vistas of black sand, rugged terrain and the bright red flowers of the Pohutukawa Tree.
