POST-CRUISE OPTION – Sydney including Golf at The Lakes & New South Wales
GOLF OPTION – Queenstown & Jack's Point

PerryGolf is proud to partner with Azamara Club Cruises for an exceptional golf and sightseeing voyage to New Zealand and Australia on board the outstanding Azamara Journey. It’s the perfect opportunity to leave the northern hemisphere’s winter behind for the sunshine and long daylight hours of a southern ... Read More.

hemisphere summer! Our itinerary begins in Auckland, New Zealand. After eight days cruising both the north and south islands we leave Milford Sound for Sydney where our spectacular arrival into one of the world’s most iconic harbors signals the conclusion of our voyage. In addition to the Sound, our New Zealand experience will include the wine country of Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay.  Enjoy the art deco tours in Napier, and the Tauranga’s kiwi farms and of course some of the most majestic natural beauty on earth.

Our golf is equally spectacular. In order to access New Zealand’s finest golf courses, and also to experience the beauty of New Zealand’s interior, our golf program also includes an easy one night off ship overnight stay in beautiful Taupo, with dinner & drinks included.   We have been able to include New Zealand’s most famous golf courses, each highly dramatic and outstanding layouts:   Kauri Cliffs, The Kinloch Club, and Cape Kidnappers, along with the highly regarded Christchurch Golf Club Shirley Links and the charming Chisholm Links at Dunedin. A second off ship overnight stay is offered as an option for guests to go deep into the Southern Alps of New Zealand’s South Island to visit the spectacular Queenstown and play the stunning Jack's Point layout.   

Many guests are golfing couples but an equal number are Golfers travelling with a Non-Golfing spouse who are exceptionally well catered to as well.  In addition to the fabulous on board facilities which all will enjoy during our “sea time” as we cross the Tasman Sea, a wide selection of Azamara Land Discoveries® are offered in each port, allowing guests to explore as much or as little of the culture and countryside as they prefer. Azamara distinguishes itself as a specialist for “destination immersion” by providing more time in port than other major cruise lines.

On board, guests are absolutely spoiled. The 690-passenger (410 crew) Journey is large enough to provide every comfort and amenity; outstanding restaurants and bars, an exceptional full service spa, an excellent variety of evening entertainment. Yet she is small enough to provide an intimate, clubhouse style experience while comfortably navigating smaller harbours. In addition to “normal” cruise features, all soft drinks, specialty coffees, boutique daily wines, and a choice of select standard beers and cocktails are inclusive within the cruise fare, as are all gratuities.

Leave winter behind and join us on this magical adventure in the long daylight hours of the southern hemisphere!

Detailed Itinerary

Thursday, February 22: auckland, new zealand (in port / 6:00pm)

Embark Azamara Journey from 1:00PM until 4:30PM. 

Welcome Cocktails & Briefing this evening for a chance to meet your fellow participants.

Auckland is the capital and most populous city in New Zealand. The only city in the world built on an active basaltic volcanic field;  its warm, coastal climate allows for surfing at black-sand beaches, picnics in secluded coves, or horseback riding.  Tour a sheep farm, take a guided tour of the coastal rainforest, or go on a harbor cruise. Immerse yourself in Auckland’s art, Māori culture, and history.  View the beauty of the coastline from above when you go hang gliding, or take a trip around the winemaking regions of either Matakana or Waiheke Island.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®.

Overnight: At Sea

Friday, february 23: waitangi, Bay of islands, new zealand (06:30 / 1:00pm) russel, bay of islands, new zealand (2:00pm / 6:30pm)

Waitangi is the home of the Māori culture. If one of us walks right up, leans in close, and touches noses with you, don’t be alarmed. We’re just saying a friendly “hongi” hello. You may have seen the haka dance, which has been made famous by the New Zealand Rugby team before the start of a match or watched the movie Whale Rider. However when it comes to really understanding and appreciating the Māori culture and people, the best way to do so is visit Waitangi. Māori chiefs signed their 1840 accord with the British Crown at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, making it New Zealand’s most historic site. Not only does Waitangi honour the birthplace of a nation and offer stunning views of the Bay of Islands, but it also features cultural and musical performances, including, yes, the haka. So if you’ve ever wanted to dive into an absolute treasure trove of all things Māori, come with us to Waitangi.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®.

GOLF: Kauri Cliffs was designed and built by David Harman of Golf Course Consultants, Orlando, Florida. It is a par 72 championship golf course that measures 7,119 yards / 6,510 metres with a selection of  five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Tee selection is an important decision here, with gorges and fairways with some of the healthiest and thickest grass in the world making it easy to mount up a tally of lost balls. Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs which plunge to the sea. The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland. Kauri Cliffs is currently ranked by Golf Digest as #39 among the top 100 in the world. Golfers rejoin Azamara Journey this afternoon in Russel.

Short VIDEO - Kauri Cliffs Golf Course

Russel has a colourful history that dates back to the early 1800s when it was a lawless frontier town and even called "the hell hole of the Pacific”, and was the first permanent European settlement and seaport in New Zealand. A couple of centuries can make a difference as the guns, grog shops have gone. Today with a population of less than 1,000 people, houses of ill repute have been replaced with quaint shops, cafés, and restaurants (although there is still plenty of grog to be found). One thing that remains the same are Russel’s natural wonders, which are best explored by bike, horse, or sailboat. Try your hand at game fishing marlin and tuna. With scenery like this, you can see why so many people are lured to Russel and the Bay of Islands.

Overnight: At Sea

saturday, february 24: Tauranga, new zealand (9:00am / 7:oopm)

Tauranga is situated midway on the North Island’s eastern coast, and was settled by the Māori in the 13th century.  It is now the most populous city in New Zealand’s renowned Bay of Plenty. A popular coastal town with a subtropical climate, Tauranga features beautiful golden beaches, lush parks, and a laidback atmosphere, while offering an array of adventures including dolphin watching, hiking, fishing, sailing, and diving. Choose from nature discovery tours, a Tauranga sightseeing trip, or even a jet boat ride. Head to Mount Maunganui Beach— a favorite locale with both surfers and hikers alike—or visit such sites as Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park, Kaiate Falls, and The Strand waterfront area for its variety of restaurants, pubs, cafes, and nightclubs. 

Port Explorer Guide - Tauranga

The group will rejoin Azamara Journey in the early evening of day two in Napier New Zealand.

Enjoy a scenic drive (2 hours) to The Kinloch Club nearby Taupo.

GOLF: The Kinloch Club is a recent addition to New Zealand’s golf selection, opening in 2007 as Jack Nicklaus’s signature course. Although the course is situated far inland it pays homage to British Links. Situated on volcanic terrain it seamlessly blends the raw links style into age old kiwi sheep farming territory, surrounded by craggy hills and scenic views of the imposing Lake Taupo. It is now considered by many golf experts to be the #1 course in New Zealand and is sure to give even the most experienced golfer a rugged test.

Overnight: Taupo, New Zealand (hotel – off ship)

sunday, february 25: Napier, new zealand (2:00pm / 9:00pm)

Enjoy a scenic drive (2 hours) from Taupo to Cape Kidnappers.

GOLF: Cape Kidnappers is consistently rated the #1 course in New Zealand and has received critical acclaim from around the golfing world. This Tom Doak design occupies a huge expanse of property, with the drive from the public road to the clubhouse taking you through a sheep and cattle station. The golf course is set on pristine land, wedged between the station and the huge cliffs of the Cape. The much photographed course has a number of holes separated by deep ravines which run down to the South Pacific Ocean. The course also offers commanding views over the wine region of Hawke's Bay and the nearby small port town of Napier.

It is a par 72 championship golf course that measures 7,119 yards / 6,510 metres with a selection of five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Tee selection is an important decision here, with gorges and fairways with some of the healthiest and thickest grass in the world making it easy to mount up a tally of lost balls. Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs which plunge to the sea. The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland. Kauri Cliffs is currently ranked by Golf Digest as #39 among the top 100 in the world.

<The Kinloch Club

The Kinloch Club is a recent addition to New Zealand’s golf selection, opening in 2007 as Jack Nicklaus’s signature course. Although the course is situated far inland it pays homage to British Links. Situated on volcanic terrain it seamlessly blends the raw links style into age old kiwi sheep farming territory, surrounded by craggy hills and scenic views of the imposing Lake Taupo. It is now considered by many golf experts to be the #1 course in New Zealand and is sure to give even the most experienced golfer a rugged test.

<Cape Kidnappers

Cape Kidnappers is consistently rated the #1 course in New Zealand and has received critical acclaim from around the golfing world. This Tom Doak design occupies a huge expanse of property, with the drive from the public road to the clubhouse taking you through a sheep and cattle station. The golf course is set on pristine land, wedged between the station and the huge cliffs of the Cape. The much photographed course has a number of holes separated by deep ravines which run down to the South Pacific Ocean. The course also offers commanding views over the wine region of Hawke's Bay and the nearby small port town of Napier.

<Christchurch Golf Club

Christchurch Golf Club whas a proud history that dates back to 1873. The club is the second oldest in New Zealand and the fifth oldest outside the United Kingdom. Its Shirley Links course has held numerous New Zealand Open and Amateur Championships. In 1990 it hosted the World Amateur Team Championship. The course is renowned world-wide as a challenging championship course of the highest quality which offers a fair test of golf for both club and professional golfer. The Club Patron is former Club Champion Sir Bob Charles, New Zealand’s most successful professional golfer, best known for winning the 1963 British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes, England.

<Chisholm Links

Chisholm Links, located just outside Dunedin, is a genuine links course in the truest sense of the word and may well be considered the hidden gem of this golf voyage. Developed on reserve land in the 1930s, several of its holes occupy a magnificent headland wedged between two beaches. It is hole #9 which guests tend to remember most keenly with the tee clinging to the edge of a huge precipice high over picturesque Tomahawk Beach. The playability and character of the holes along with striking views over the Pacific Ocean and neighboring beaches make it a very special experience. The links have previously hosted the New Zealand Amateur Championship in 2003 plus three Australasian PGA Tour Events.

<Jack's Point

Jack's Point Golf Course, is situated between the majestic Lake Wakatipu and 2,300 vertical metres of the Remarkables Mountain Range. Jack's Point was named after a 19th century Māori local named Jack. He was awarded a medal from the Royal Humane Society of Britain after saving the life of a man when they had capsized in Lake Wakatipu in winter 1862, an extraordinary rescue. It traverses through wetland to the lake edge encountering steep bluffs, indigenous vegetation and wildlife. The course is not only one of the most spectacular in the world but with an 18 hole par 72 Championship course offers a challenging and lasting experience to any calibre of golfer.
