We don't just label any tour as "ultimate". But when you're 40 days in length and loaded with the best experiences Australia and New Zealand have to offer, well, that's the only word that'll do this level of adventure justice. Starting in Melbourne, you'll make your way to the beaches of Victoria, Grampians National Park, the Daintree Rainforest, the Blue Mountains, Fiordland National Park, and a traditional Maori village and that's not including a million-ish other places in between. If you're looking for the total Down Under experience, this is it.
