From Kangaroos to Keas

Australia and New Zealand with UC Retirees, autumn 2004

by Harry & Iris Matthews

Skip to images: either all 41 or our favourite 16.


Iris and I visited parts of Australia and the South island of New Zealand in October and November 2004. We travelled with a group comprised mainly of UC Retirees led by Ms. Helen van Den Berg of Collette Tours. Here we present a pictorial essay of our exploration.

We used Quantas Airways flights for international flights and most travelling in Australia; we used a coach for the South Island of New Zealand. We stayed overnight at the following places as well as visiting places en route, especially in New Zealand.
