Australia and New Zealand

Your students’ adventure down under on this Australia student tour includes the modern cities of Auckland and Sydney, as well as an intimate experience with the indigenous Maori and Aboriginal people.  From a traditional Hangi meal, cooked on hot rocks according to Maori tradition, to a heritage tour of the Aboriginals, the most ancient human culture, along with The Rocks where the sounds of the didgeridoo echo.   Students will be immersed in the history, land, and culture of New Zealand and Australia, including an outing to a jade-cutting demonstration and a sheep farm.  Visits to Rotorua, the center of Maori culture, and the beaches of Australia enhance the student’s journey.  The adventure ensues with a gondola ride and surfing lesson, and an up-close encounter with indigenous wildlife such as the kangaroo and koala on the Australia student tour!
