Australia & New Zealand Cruise & Tour - 2017

Previous Gallery Travel & Vacation Alaska 2008

Wife Patricia and I flew to Sydney, Australia, on October 20 for a combination cruise and land tour, with three stops in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, and Hobart (Tasmania)) and the remaining time spent on New Zealand.  The cruise portion was via Holland America, on the MSS Noordam, and lasted 15 days.  Following that we spent a week seeing New Zealand's alpine country on an itinerary arranged by New Zealand Coach Tours, with nights in Christchurch, Franz Josef and Queenstown.

This collection comprises the best photos taken during the trip.  Another collection, presented more as a travelogue, may be seen in a public album on Facebook.
