Australia & New Zealand 2016

In October of 2016, Tom and Iris had a great time traveling to Australia and New Zealand with friends Ron and Liz. This was a three week guided tour with Overseas Adventure Travel that included 12 other travelers and a wonderful tour guide named Udo. In Australia they visited Melbourne, Adelaide, Alice Springs, Uluru (Ayres Rock), Cairn, and Sydney. Two of the highlights were snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef and attending a performance of My Fair Lady at the Sydney Opera House. In New Zealand they visited Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown, and Milford Sound. One of the highlights was cruising through Milford Sound on a rainy day with all the waterfalls flowing.
