We did this cruise a little while ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Christchurch - go into the city by shuttle bus and have a walk around. Beautiful city on the river Avon. Very picturesque. Wellington walk from the ship into the city - about 15min walk. Very hilly but interesting. Go in the cablecar up to the lookout. Dunedin do the castle tour and also if you have time the tour to the Albatross rookerie. You can also go through the Cadbury factory there. Hobart walk to city about 15 minutes. Some very interesting historical buildings to look at or you can do the convict tour of Port Arthur. Melbourne catch a tram into the city from the pier - about 15 minutes. They usually have conductors at the tram stop to help visitors if you are not sure what you are doing. Melbourne is my favourite Australian city - best shopping around so we just went into the city for the day and nosed around and visited our favourite places. They also run tours up into the Dandenongs on the Puffin Billy - an old steam train. I think you can also go to Soverign Hill and pan for gold. Sydney do the harbour cruise or catch the Manly Ferry over to Manly and the north shore. Mummsie
