Day 1: Depart Sydney 7pm

Before boarding Silver Shadow, enjoy all that Sydney has to offer. Iconic landmarks and famous beaches, the awe-inspiring harbour or a trip to the world-renowned Blue Mountains.

Day 2 – At Sea

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind. Visit the Fitness Centre, catch up on your reading by the pool, or indulge in a treatment at Zagara Beauty Spa.

 

Day 3-  Port Arthur Tasmania

Port Arthur, a historically somber UNESCO World Heritage site, sits in over 40 hectares of beautiful, landscaped grounds, close to the Tasman National Park, itself famed for its dramatic beauty.

Today, Port Arthur brings the story of Australia’s colonial history to life through stories of the very people who lived here.

A major site for punishing transported convicts who had further offended since deportation, many thousands of prisoners passed through the penal colony at one time or another. Throughout its history it has been a place of both torturous punishment and for some of the luckier ones, educational opportunity.

Partly restored ruins of the colony and church, built with great skill by convicts in the 1830’s and the aptly named Island of the Dead, an island cemetery for convicts, are today prime attractions. This is a place jam packed with history, vividly brought to life by well informed guides and displays, it’s a moving and engrossing visit. In sharp contrast to the convicts, visitors are free to wander and explore.

Turn up after dark, to look for evidence of the spookier side of Port Arthur, as part of the very popular ghost tour – Lit only by lanterns, the tour takes you through some of the most infamous buildings, quite different at nightfall. The guides will fill you in on some of the stranger goings on that have been noted in what is considered the most haunted place in Australia. The daily tourists departed, the long gone seem really quite close!

Days 5 & 6 –  At sea

Two days in which to enjoy the ambience of the ship. Relax in the Observation Lounge, shop at the Boutique, and take in the daily entertainment options available throughout the ship.

Day 7-  Cruising Milford Sound 08:00 – 10:00

 

Located within the South Island’s Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is not a sound but a fjord with a length of approximately 16 kilometres and a depth of more than 290 metres. As the ship sails through, you will take in the beauty of the steep cliffs, impressive waterfalls and dense rainforest vegetation. Look out for bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins along the way.

Day 7-  Cruising Doubtful Sound 15:00 – 18:00

As with all of New Zealand’s fiords, Doubtful Sound is a masterpiece of nature. The only way to reach it is by boat, crossing Lake Manapouri, so of the three Sounds (Dusky and Milford being the other two), Doubtful is the least touristy. Thus those who are lucky enough to experience Doubtful Sound deserve it. Because of the Sound’s inaccessibility, you’ll encounter very few people as you float through the silent waterways.
Animals, however, are a different matter. Because of the lack of human interaction, Mother Nature has been given a free rein here. The dense forest is rife with wildlife and birdsong is a constant soundtrack (otherwise it is the sound of silence). In the water, you can expect to get up close and personal with fur seals, pods of bottlenose dolphins and some lucky souls have even sighted the occasional whale and albatross. Ornithologists will no doubt already know that Doubtful Sound is home to the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin, so be sure to keep your binoculars ready as it would be a shame to miss the once in a lifetime sighting. The region is famous for its seven meter annual rainfall, so do not be surprised if the sun isn’t shining. Yet despite the potential mist, Doubtful Sound remains majestic. The waterfalls are more mesmerising, the glassy water more mysterious, and the mountains rising into the clouds more impressive. As the Fiordlands website puts it, Doubtful Sound offers its visitors “cloistered serenity”. Expect to be both humbled and uplifted.

Day 8 – Day at Sea
enjoy the ambience of the ship. Relax in the Observation Lounge, shop at the Boutique, and take in the daily entertainment options available throughout the ship.


Day 9 – Dunedin (Port Chalmers)

 

Dunedin is a cosmopolitan city of culture and architectural splendour, located in Otago Harbour on the south-easterly coast.  Settled by the Scots in 1848, bagpipes echo down the streets in what is called the Edinburgh of the South.  Spend your day in the city exploring Gothic revival architecture which is scattered throughout the city, including the university with its incredible clock tower, and head out on an excursion to view the Otago Peninsula with its rugged beauty and its wildlife.

Day 10 –
 Akaroa

There are many stunning places on the coast of New Zealand, but none of them can quite surpass Akaroa. Surrounded by natural wonders, the town stands on a peninsula formed by two volcanic cones. With pretty painted cottages and balconies, and street names such as Rue Lavaud and Fleur Lane, you could be forgiven for thinking that you have stepped onto the streets of Provence. The French connection began here in 1838.  Spend the day exploring the quaint streets of the town, or heading into historic Christchurch, less than 50 kilometres away.
