Overview

Highlights of the South Pacific with Fiji

Ready to wash that monotony right out of your hair? Head to the South Pacific and send it on its way. Combining fun, sun, glee, and the sea, this tour of Australia and New Zealand introduces you to the favorite features and creatures of both fascinating countries. Starting in New Zealand, you’ll witness Waitomo’s Glowworm Caves and Rotorua’s boiling mud pools before cruising through some of the coolest fiord scenery in the world in Queenstown’s Milford Sound. More uplifting sights await in the “Land Down Under” as you take a spin on Melbourne’s Star Observation Wheel, a dip in the colorful, coral-filled ocean at the Great Barrier Reef, and a ferry across Sydney Harbour to see the Opera House and other harmonious sights. While you’re sure to take plenty of pictures on this tour of the South Pacific, we’ll take one of you with a crocodile or koala for the ultimate souvenir. Did you know the koala sleeps an average of 20 hours a day?

Why not add a 3-night Monograms vacation to Fiji to your tour of the South Pacific and curl up in a beachside hammock yourself? Between naps, you’ll enjoy a Sigatoka River safari and the sun, fun, and genuine warmth of the islanders.
