Your Destinations

Travel throughout the country, discovering a variety of unique experiences and magnificent sights.

And, if that is not enough, you can also opt to add a variety of outstanding excursions, allowing you to cater every aspect of this trip to your needs and desires.

Australia

With a plethora of tropical islands, the Great Barrier Reef, and the iconic Sydney Opera House, it should come as no surprise that Australia is filled with unforgettable adventures. From the world’s largest surf festival in Queensland to unique Aborigine ceremonies across the country, this diverse nation is brimming with cultural experiences. 

There is no other destination on the planet that combines beautiful beaches with hip cities, indigenous tales, expansive rainforests, kangaroos, and boomerang throwing. Australia is an ideal place to visit for anyone who is keen to get outside and explore its rugged landscape. Families with young children will never be short of things to do, while hiking enthusiasts may like to venture away from the tourist tracks for a challenging trek with jaw-dropping scenery.

Your Itinerary

During their fly drive, our members will follow the itinerary as detailed below.

Day 1: Arrival in Auckland
Welcome to New Zealand! Pick up your car at the airport, and the adventure begins ... 
Auckland "Sailing City", the cosmopolitan city of Auckland, relaxing Auckland, the sparkling city of Auckland: many names of the greatest metropolis of the country. Polynesian, Asian and European cultures mix to make the city attractive, diverse and full of life!

Day 2: Auckland

With the mild climate, the omnipresence of the sea and its many beaches, the city constantly invites you to enjoy the joys of the outdoors. There are about 102 almost deserted beaches within an hour of the center and 1 in 4 people owns a boat. The city is also very volcanic and has 60 extinct volcanoes some of which have been converted into a park. Mount Eden, whose summit is 196 m high, is the highest peak in the city and offers a spectacular panorama of the region. West of Auckland, crossing the Waitakere Mountains where you can enjoy kauris and huge ferns, you can relax or surf the black sand beaches such as Piha and Karekare. Take the time to enjoy the city and all its neighborhoods more attractive than each other. 
Day 3: Whitianga - Coromandel  
Morning drive to the east coast towards Coromandel. Arrival in Whitianga (about 180 km). Accommodation for 1 night in Whitianga.
Located just an hour and a half from Auckland Airport, the Coromandel Peninsula is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A steep mountain range covered with natural rainforest runs the length of the peninsula. The west coast has a rugged coastline, with native Pohutakawa trees growing to the shore. On the east side, a series of large bays, with beautiful white sand beaches. It's no wonder that the Coromandel Peninsula is one of the favorite holiday destinations for kiwis! 

Days 4 and 5: Rotorua

Continue in the afternoon towards Rotorua (about 60 km). Accommodation for 2 nights in ROTORUA.
In this region, volcanoes and geothermal springs are excellent landscapers and a trip to New Zealand would not be complete without this step. The city lies on a volcanic fault 200 km from White Island to Mount Ruapehu in Tongariro National Park and is built directly on the Pacific Ring of Fire. An unforgettable place where geothermal activity is omnipresent. The smell of sulfur and the eruption of geysers will give you the impression that Rotorua is different from other places already visited. Rotorua is also the ancestral land of Te Arawa, a people who arrived more than 600 years ago and whose presence offers many cultural experiences to visitors. It is also an excellent trout fishing area in the lakes and surrounding rivers. 
Day 6: Christchurch 
Accommodation for 1 night in Christchurch
Christchurch is the second largest city in New Zealand, a dynamic and energetic city where urban regeneration, creativity and innovation are developing. Explore breathtaking street art, innovative projects, burgeoning hotel architecture and state-of-the-art architecture that change the look, feel and function of the city. The city is known for its beautiful gardens, museums and restaurants.

Day 7: Mount Cook and area 
Morning drive to Mount Cook National Park (approx. 330 km). Accommodation for 1 night at MOUNT COOK.
Aoraki Mount Cook National Park is home to the highest mountains and longest glaciers. It is a mountain in the purest sense of the word - with snow-capped peaks, glaciers and permanent snowfields, all under a starry sky. 

Day 8: Dunedin 
Morning departure to the south-east coast to Dunedin (approx. 300 km). Accommodation for 1 night in DUNEDIN.
The Otago region offers a great diversity of landscapes combining a beautiful historic architecture of the cities, a solid natural heritage of remarkable beauty and a fauna rich in endemic species. The historic Victorian buildings of Dunedin are among the best preserved in the southern hemisphere and add a certain charm to the city. A little further from the city and towards Oamaru, you can see the little blue penguins (the smallest penguins in the world) out of the water each night to climb the country. The Otago peninsula is also home to yellow-eyed penguins (one of the rarest in the world), this peninsula is an excellent example of ecotourism and remains very well preserved. You can also visit Moeraki, a small fishing village, to observe the rocks of Moeraki, a strange natural phenomenon. They are huge spherical rocks up to 1 m wide and scattered on Koekohe beach. 
Day 9: Te Anau
Morning departure to the west coast along the "Catlins Forests" to reach Te Anau (approx. 300 km). Accommodation for 1 night in TE ANAU.
Fiordland Park is one of the most spectacular in New Zealand. This classified site extends its magnificent beech forests, its torrents and its waterfalls thanks to its important precipitations all the year. Te Anau is the largest city near the Fiords and the largest lake on the South Island, Te Anau Lake. To reach Manapouri, the starting point for cruises on the fjord, you will have to take a road that descends into the mountains through lush forests, plains and beautiful lakes. Milford Sound is an unforgettable site whose highest point is Miter Peak (1,692 m). 

Days 10 and 11: Queenstown 
Afternoon to Queenstown (approx. 170 km). Accommodation for 2 nights in QUEENSTOWN.
Otago's central region offers ever-changing landscapes that create sumptuous hues of color. Queenstown has become one of the country's major tourist centers with its many outdoor activities and an atmosphere that exudes adventure! The capital of the Southern Alps is a beautiful city surrounded by majestic mountains and situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, equally grand. 
Days 12, 13 and 14: Sydney 
Meet at Queenstown Airport and drop off your car at the Hertz car park. Check in 2.5 to 3 hours prior to departure for all international flights. Queenstone / Sydney flight. Rendez-vous to the city of Sydney (by bus, train or taxi). Accommodation for 3 nights in SYDNEY.
Sydney is the largest and busiest city in Australia. Its iconic and more than well-known attractions are the magnificent Harbor Bridge and the Opera House. Visitors can join the locals who go to work by ferry, take a boat trip all day or choose the frenetic acceleration of a jet boat. Most tours of the city revolve around the water. The beaches and bays along the shore are the best places in the world to learn sailing, kayaking or surfing. The eclectic city offers a variety of world cuisines in restaurants such as Pitt Street Mall or across from Sydney Town Hall. Sydney is also known for its vibrant nightlife in Oxford Street bars, Paddington pubs such as the Four in Hand or Windsor Castle or its lunches on the most beautiful restored Victorian terraces on Paddington Street or Woollahra Street. 

Days 15 and 16: Ayers Rock 
Meet at Sydney Airport (by bus, train or taxi). Flight Sydney / Ayers Rock.
Pick up your vehicle at the Ayers Rock Hertz rental counter at the airport (return to Ayers Rock Airport)
Considered Australia's most famous natural emblem, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is at its best when at sunset. Until recent years, this monumental monument was known as Ayers Rock, a name given by the European explorer William Gosse in 1873. 

Not far from here, 40 km to the west, you need another wonder of nature at the Red Center of Australia, Kata Tjuta / Les Olgas. With more than 500 million years, the 32 rock domes of Kata Tjuta used by the elements are spectacular. Kata Tjuta, which means "many heads" in the local indigenous language, is a sacred site for the Anangu who have lived in the area for more than 22,000 years. 
Days 17, 18 and 19: Cairns 
Return from your car to Ayers Rock Airport. Flight Ayers Rock / Cairns. Meet in Cairns (by bus or taxi). Accommodation for 3 nights in CAIRNS.
Cairns is a multicultural and bustling city offering fantastic restaurants, shops and bars. It is also the starting point for exploring the islands, the rainforest and the reef of North Queensland. The Great Barrier Reef is a must-see and spectacular place in Australia. Listed as UNESCO World Heritage, this part is made up of islands of coral, sponges and seaweed. Admire the myriad of corals and marine life in a glass bottom boat on a cruise 

Day 20: Return flight
