This first week allows you to view all your favorite players up close while they are still in the tournament. This is the time to be at the Australian Open, when all the festive activities are in full swing.

There is much more to this tour than tennis! Our first stop is New Zealand! Queenstown, New Zealand is a winter and summer sporting center that looks like Aspen, Colorado. The beautiful mountain scenery in this area has been captured in the filming of Lord of the Rings. Nearby, Milford Sound features towering waterfalls and impressive fiords reminiscent of Norway.

Our first Australian city is Melbourne. The tour includes outstanding tennis in a beautiful setting with the world’s most hospitable tennis fans. Tennis fans from all over the world, some dressed in creative and outrageous costumes, enhance the festive environment. The beautiful city of Melbourne surrounds the tennis stadium, and the Yarra River runs in front, bordered by walking and bicycle paths, and covered with crew boats and sea gulls. The half hour walk or free Trams along the Yarra River from the Batman's Hill On Collins Hotel to the stadium goes past modern hotels, open air restaurants, the Victorian Arts Center, picturesque park areas, and captivating botanical gardens with exotic flowers, plants, and trees.

Our next Australian city is tropical Cairns, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Spend a day out on the Great Barrier Reef onboard our dive ship. Enjoy a private lecture designed at giving you a more in depth look at the indigenous culture of Australia. Travel above the Rainforest canopy by Sky Rail [world's longest gondola] to Kuranda Aboriginal Village.

Our last Australian city on the tour is Sydney. Sydney's beautiful harbor, attractive surfing beaches, and famous Sydney Opera House are memorable at any time. However, Australia Day on January 26th is the country’s largest cultural celebration. Fireworks over the city, tall ships in the harbor, opera in the park, parades, festival shows and free concerts all create a festive environment that will not be forgotten.
