1 Mon 6 Oct 2014 Sydney, Australia
Bounty Adventure Cruise Cruise ships berthed at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) access sweeping views of the harbour, Opera House, CBD, Circular Quay ferry terminal, and Sydney Harbour Bridge – all within a few minutes’ walk. The OPT is currently undergoing a major expansion to berth vessels with 5000+ passengers. The new White Bay Cruise Terminal, for mid-sized vessels that can pass under the Bridge, docks two cruise ships. Facilities at both terminals are efficient, though White Bay is 30 minutes’ drive by taxi or shuttle bus to the CBD and Central Station. Long term car parking is not too far away from each terminal. During the crowded summer season cruise ships occasionally tender passengers from Athol Buoy and Point Piper Buoy. QM2 has docked at Garden Island Naval Base.

Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is Australia's first and largest city. Astride the magnificent Sydney Harbour, it has come a long way from its convict beginnings in 1788, but still exudes a rough and colonial energy. Soak up Sydney’s gorgeous harbour on a wide range of vessels including yachts, tall ships, catamarans, or even kayaks. If adventurous try a jet boat ride, or perhaps decide that there's no better way to see the sights than on a Sydney Explorer Hop-on Hop-off Harbour Cruise. Take surfing lessons at Manly and Bondi Beaches. On the harbour’s north shore are Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Aquarium, and on a tiny island in the middle of the harbour tour historic Fort Denison.

Adjacent to the OPT investigate The Rocks precinct with its images of a colourful convict past. Day options include a climb to the top of the ‘Coathanger’, tour of the Opera House, dining at the Skywalk of Sydney Tower, strolling in Hyde Park, dining at an ethnic restaurant, Duty-Free shopping, and striking up a conversation with friendly locals. One-day coach tours visit the highlights of Sydney, Hunter Valley wine region, and the spectacular Blue Mountains. Take a scenic flight over the Harbour and Pacific surfing coastline. For lovers of sport, whale-watching, sky diving, and hot air ballooning are also on offer.

4 Thu 9 Oct 2014 Noumea, New Caledonia
Bounty Adventure Cruise Situated in the south of the country's main island Grande Terre, Noumea is the capital of the French Territory of New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean. It enjoys a sunny, moderate climate, and truly is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, where the South Pacific meets the Riviera. The city maintains much of New Caledonia's unique mix of French and old Melanesian culture, while the U.S. wartime military influence lingers. This is evidenced both in the warmth that many New Caledonian people feel towards the U.S., as well as some of the very 'American' names of several of the quarters of the city.

Noumea has excellent museums, restaurants, designer boutiques, markets, and shopping areas, which you are sure to enjoy, here in the 'Paris of the Pacific'. Some of Noumea's best-known restaurants are in the attractive tourist area of Anse Vata. The city's main square, Place des Cocotiers, is also flanked by a variety of cafes and restaurants. And to drink? Try the kava while you're in town – it's a memory you'll not quickly forget. Hiring a yacht is very popular, as are windsurfing and scuba diving. There are numerous hiking possibilities to the craggy mountainous beauty of the interior, and several ranches offer horseback riding.

There are several attractions in Noumea beyond the bays and amid the hibiscus and the bougainvillea. Learn about Noumea's history at the City Museum and Museum of Maritime, and then take in one of the most remarkable collections of Pacific artefacts in the Museum of New Caledonia. Just out of town is the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre, featuring the iconic wooden round houses of the region, an Oceanic cultures library, as well as traditional dancing and music at select times. Snorkelling is popular in Lemon Bay, and wind/kite surfers take advantage of the breezes of Anse Vata in the afternoons.

6 Sat 11 Oct 2014 Nadi, Fiji
Bounty Adventure Cruise Nadi, known as the 'gateway to Fiji', is the third largest centre in Fiji. It is popular among travellers seeking to take ferries to island resorts in Fiji's western Mamanuca Group of islands. Nadi Town is tourist oriented and a great place to experience, while Namaka, near to the international airport, is also renowned for its shopping. Other places of interest include Sri Siva Subramaniva Temple, the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere, with a range of sacred statues of Indian influence. Visit the Waqadra Botanical Gardens, and the Sleeping Giant Gardens which house Raymond Burr's magnificent orchid collection. One may then choose to take an easy 33 km side trip to Lautoka, Fiji's second largest city, a genteel contrast to Nadi.

Denaurau Island is just a matter of minutes away across a short bridge, and whisks you from the Third World into the First World, with its shopping complex at Port Denaurau. You can take long walks on the beautiful warm water beach, play volleyball or simply enjoy swimming. There are a range of organised day trips on which you could visit the Nausori Highlands or the Sabeto River Valley. Also on offer is some great diving, with a wide variety of dive sites including wall dives, swim-throughs, caves, canyons, and picturesque reef dives. Take a helicopter or hire a boat and enjoy many beautiful islands. Nadi certainly lives up to its reputation of 'the most often visited Fijian city'.

7 Sun 12 Oct 2014 Dravuni, Fiji
Bounty Adventure Cruise Dravuni Island is a dramatically rugged volcanic island in the scenic Kadavu group of islands, part of Fiji. The island is home to a couple of hundred friendly Fijians, concentrated in a delightful village that shelters beneath tall palm trees. The island is known for its glorious, pristine beaches and fine weather. Energetic visitors can stretch their legs on a pretty trek up grassy slopes to Dravuni's highest peak from which there is a fantastic view of the surrounding islands. You can really 'get away from it all' as there are no shops, crowds, or anything to disturb you. It is a truly restful port of call.

For those who don’t appreciate walking for a rocky 1-2 hours, a boat trip around the island is very attractive. Take an island tour, hire a car and set your own pace, grab a snorkel and head for the water, or simply find a stretch of unoccupied beach and bask. There are vendors along the beach, but there is no shouting or pushing to get visitors’ attention. If you want to check out the booth, then that’s fine.

8 Mon 13 Oct 2014 Suva, Fiji
Bounty Adventure Cruise Suva is the capital and largest city of Fiji is perched on a hilly peninsula between Laucala Bay and Suva Harbour in the SE corner of the island of Viti Levu. It is a beautiful tropical city full of colour and diverse cultures. Although it is the only place in Fiji where you will see buildings taller than palm trees, local folk traditions such as fire walks, welcoming ceremonies, wood-carving and the fabrication of tree-bark cloth, remain strong. Hire a taxi for the day or take a tour and enjoy its tall modern buildings which are beautifully balanced by rich traditional colonial architecture. Interestingly, restaurants offer a great selection of cuisines including Chinese, Indian, traditional Fijian and European.

Well-known landmarks worth visiting include Suva City Library, Government House, the official residence of the President, the largest University in the South Pacific Islands, and the Fijian Museum that . There are also numerous parks such as theThurston Gardens which house the new Takashi Suzuki Garden, and Apted Park with its picturesque location at Suva Point. Albert Park, made famous when Charles Kingsford-Smith made an emergency landing here on his 1928 trans-Pacific flight, also attracts many visitors. Then there’s the Fiji Museum that displays archaeological findings dating back 3500 years, as well as cultural objects reflecting the Fijian manner of life during the past 100 years.

Colo-l-Suva Forest Park offers hiking trails, swimming and bird watching. Along with its modern shopping plazas, and the vibrant and colourful shopping area of Cumming Street, is the sprawling complex of municipal markets near the waterfront where you will find an assortment of artefacts and handicrafts. For those who love shopping, a visit to the air-conditioned shopping mall of Tappoo City is essential, though others may prefer to bargain for artefacts at the Municipal Handicraft Centre.

10 Wed 15 Oct 2014 Nuku'alofa, Tonga
Bounty Adventure Cruise Nuku'alofa Town is the capital of Tonga, sitting on a narrow isthmus facing the Pacific Ocean to the north, and the Fanga'uta Lagoon to the south. With a population of just 30,000 it is a quiet, sprawling and functional town with buses and internet cafes. It provides a window to a picturesque nation, where tradition and religion are paramount in everyday life. The most visited attraction is the Royal Palace in the heart of town. Although not open to the public, you get a good view from the waterfront of the colonial wooden building which was built in 1867.

Sign up for tours that will take you to the exotic beaches in the nearby islets where you can swim, snorkel and relax or get cultural and take time off to get acquainted with the Tongan people, their dances, cooking, tapa making, weaving and wood carving at the National Centre. Then there’s the Tonga Survival Safari, led by a Tongan guide. Swim in a really clean cave, and look out for ‘happy’ whales breaching around the beach in front of the cave. Then visit a farm that rather resembles a jungle, and at sunset have a real Tongan meal of roasted chicken served with yam and fruits.

Another attraction is the Royal Tombs, set in a manicured park which though closed to the public, is visible through the fence. A few pleasant cafes and restaurants in the town centre provide a quiet escape, and if you are there on Saturday, then the Talamahu Market is a 'must'. If interested in handicrafts, Langafonua, a women's co-operative, is the most reliable source, and it has reasonable prices. The harbour wall along Vuna Road is good for a stroll and spotting the offshore islands. If possible, watch and swim with southern humpback whales for an out of the world experience.

11 Thu 16 Oct 2014 Vava'u, Tonga
Bounty Adventure Cruise Vava'u, and the other 40 odd islands that make up this stunningly beautiful group, is situated in the north of the Kingdom of the Tongan archipelago in the South Pacific. Despite now being easily accessible, it still remains off the beaten track of mass tourism. Neiafu, the tiny capital on Vava'u, is perched above the Port of Refuge Harbour, a delightful natural harbour regarded by many as one of the most beautiful in the world. With its year-round tropical climate, being remote and truly unspoiled, the result is crystal clear waters with visibility exceeding 30 m. It truly is an ideal location for swimming, snorkelling and sailing.

Some islands have sea-level caves, and dramatic limestone cliffs with breathtaking views. There is also a wide range of activities including: visiting the floating Ark Gallery; horseback riding; Tongan feasts; land tours; kite surfing; fishing; bird watching; and trips to watch or even swim with the humpback whales. Vehicle rentals are available, so you can go at your own pace, or simply relax with a little shopping and enjoy the local bars and restaurants. You are sure to enjoy this special 'piece of paradise'.

14 Sun 19 Oct 2014 Norfolk Island, Australia
Bounty Adventure Cruise Norfolk Island is a small inhabited island in the Pacific Ocean located between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. With a sub-tropical climate tempered by the surrounding sea, tourists will find a host of things to do, including bush walking, visiting elegant convict-built Georgian buildings, bicycling, and fishing. Visit Emily Bay, where the great crescent shaped beach offers excellent safe swimming for families and snorkelling over coral reefs. Don’t miss Captain Cook’s Monument, a beautiful lookout overlooking the very small beach where Cook is believed to have landed and that is also a haven for the many seabirds.

The history of the island is amazing, for in its picture-postcard setting Britain established one of the most brutal penal colonies in its history - Old Kingston Town - a place where death was often welcomed by the convicts. Eventually the HMAV Bounty mutineers resettled there from the Pitcairn Islands. Visit these outstandingly preserved buildings, which include the Maritime Museum and the historical house at 10 Quality Row, as well as experience the sound and light shows re-enacting the mutiny on the Bounty.

On June 11, 2013, an Australian Federal Government funding package was announced, to upgrade Cascade Jetty and Kingston Jetty, and to construct special tender boats. The grant will attract more cruise ships to Norfolk Island and stimulate the local tourist economy. On the island there is no public transport, but with an untouched and world recognised area of rainforest and 80 km of mostly sealed roads and no traffic lights, it is very relaxing to drive a readily available hire car. There is also some fine duty free shopping, and the local tasty treats of periwinkles and banana dumplings to try. You will surely be impressed by Norfolk, where they speak their own special language and welcome you in their own unique way.
