From the Great Barrier Reef to the oldest living civilization, Australia is a land of superlatives. There are jumping kangaroos, cuddly koalas and scenery few places on earth can match. It’s hard to imagine anything more beautiful than the Kimberley coast or Ayer’s Rock at sunset. Unless it’s New Zealand with her stunning Lord of the Ring landscapes. New Zealand’s Sub-Antarctic is a pelagic wonderland, and Silver Discoverer is among the few permitted to land in these ‘hotspots’ of biodiversity.
