Knowing how keen her fellow Rotarians are to travel Cindy Bakewell is finalising 4 new trips for our Club, friends, and family.
  • Otago Peninsula, The Catlin’s, & Stewart Island - Departure 28 November 2021
Discover NZ’s stunning Otago Peninsula and the Deep South, home to an abundance of magnificent wildlife and the Catlin’s with its rural heartland and podocarp forest, rugged coastlines, hidden lakes are a highlight of the southern scenic route. Enjoy a glimpse into a slower lifestyle in rhythm with the sea and tides attuned to the natural world of land, sea, and nightscapes on Stewart Island.
  • The Cook Islands, including Aitutaki - Departure 07 December 2021
If you've never visited Cook Islands before, the beating heart of this little paradise will capture yours.
Rarotonga, the hub of the Cook Islands, has so much to see and do, yet remains unspoilt. No traffic lights, no McDonald’s and no building taller than the highest coconut tree.
After Rarotonga, Aitutaki is the second most visited island in the Cook Islands. You can look forward to languid, leisurely days in the jaw-dropping surroundings. Work on your suntan lazing under a coconut palm, relax with a massage or explore the island by cycle or motor-scooter.
Let the warmth of the tropical sun surround you as the scent of frangipani washes over you.
  • The Chatham Islands – departing February 2022
The Chatham Islands, a remote, awe-inspiring place that is full of birdlife and incredible history making for an unforgettable visit. Pitt Island, included in this package, is the first place in the World to see the sun rise each day and has some of the region’s most spectacular scenery, bird life, botany, geology, fishing, diving and hunting experiences. These Island provides a friendly atmosphere and a range of attractions to suit any visitor, especially nature lovers.
  • Tasmania – Departing March 2022
The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is a legacy of the last great wildernesses on earth, and a canvas rich in the stories of humanity's previous and current connections with the environment.
The 1.4 million hectares that now make up the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area are part of a chain of six national parks and a number of reserves and conservation areas that together cover one fifth of Tasmania's land mass.
Discover Tasmania's rich soil, pure air, and clean water, that has inspired dedicated growers to produce truly authentic food and drink experiences.
Tasmania is home to some of Australia's leading cool climate wines with pinot noir and sparkling wines attracting the interest of wine makers from around the world.
The clean, green environment is also ideal for producing cider, whisky and gin.
This package will take you from Hobart to Bruny Island, Cradle Mountain, Freycinet National Park and Port Arthur and much, much more.


All departures will be from Auckland.
Detailed Itineraries and costings will be available next week.
Having already received a lot of interest in these trips Cindy advises the packages will be on a first come first served basis with a minimum of 10 people on each trip.
