Sydney to Darwin, port side.
Darwin to Perth, starboard.
Perth to Melbourne, port.
Melbourne to the bottom of NZ, starboard (stern).
South NZ to Auckland, port.
Auckland to Sydney, port side.

Basically you do a full anitclockwise circumnavigation of Australia.
Then head South East to NZ then mostly North East to Auckland and mainly North West to Sydney.
The sun will be setting in the North West part of the compass, sometimes more west than North over the top of Ozzy and then in the Kiwi area it will be a lot more towards the Northern part of that sector.

There in lye's the rub.
Which side do you pick?

Port seems to have the most sunset time.

PS I hope the
