Take a trip to the South Pacific with UACCM

If you have ever wanted to visit lands with rich histories of Aboriginal culture, unique plants and animals, a diverse geographic landscape, and hospitable natives with great love and respect for the outdoors, join the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) Alumni and Friends Travel Program to explore all Australia and New Zealand have to offer. The “South Pacific Wonders” guided tour is a once in a lifetime vacation opportunity scheduled for October 4 through 18, 2010 with an optional four-day post-tour excursion to Fiji from October 18 through 21. The tour is open to a limited number of participants from the community of all ages. The 15 and 19-day tours will be led by a professional tour guide provided by Collette Vacations. The Australia and New Zealand portions will include 20 meals, hotel transfers, round trip airfare from Little Rock Regional Airport, air taxes, fees, and surcharges. The Fiji extension will include four additional meals.

The tour will begin with a stop in Cairns, Australia, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, followed by a high-speed catamaran ride to explore the reef via a glass bottom boat, beach watching, scuba diving, or snorkeling. Next, the tour will stop at the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Center to experience traditional dances and instruments, browse the renowned art gallery, tour a crocodile farm, and meet several koala bears. The tour will then head to Sydney to tour the city, take part in a dinner cruise, and tour the world-famous Sydney Opera House. After departing Australia, guests will descend upon the historic city of Christchurch, New Zealand to tour the Neo-Gothic Cathedral, visit a Canterbury farmyard, and enjoy a private dinner in the restored Victorian Riccarton House mansion. Other stops in New Zealand include Mt. Cook National Park, Hollyford Valley, Milford Sound, Queenstown, and others. Participants will even enjoy dinner one evening in the home of an actual New Zealand family. Travelers can choose to extend this amazing vacation an additional four days through a post-tour excursion to Fiji, where one can relax on the expansive beaches or in the crystal clear waters. The excursion is filled with many optional activities, so travelers can participate in whatever they prefer.

A free, no obligation multimedia presentation detailing “South Pacific Wonders” for any interested individuals will be held on Monday, February 15 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 102 in the UACCM Business Technology Center. The session will include a deeper explanation of what to expect on the tour and will also explain prices and payment options available. If you are unable to attend and would like more information, contact Kristi Strain at (501) 977-2085 or at strain@uaccm.edu.
