The Lands Down Under have their own special allure. The scenery is spectacular, from New Zealand’s jagged, snow-capped peaks to Ayer’s rock, a massive feldspar outcropping in Australia’s desert outback, to the Great Barrier Reef, a living organism so large it can be seen from space. Here the majestic and beautiful collide with the utterly unique. Home to numerous plant and animal species found nowhere else on earth, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific are on any serious traveler’s bucket list—and there’s no better way to experience them than on a Holland America Line cruise.
