Australia offers an exhilarating world of adventure, a place to relish blue skies, day-long sunshine and the great outdoors. Home to one of the oldest and most fascinating cultures in the world, Australia is also rich in wildlife but perhaps most famous of all for its huge, wild landscapes. On a single visit you could snorkel over the Great Barrier Reef, explore cosmopolitan Sydney, witness some of the most unusual creatures in the world, experience the eerie silence of the Outback and see spectacular and inspiring geological wonders including the Olgas, Katherine Gorge and Ayers Rock.
Across the South Pacific in New Zealand you could enjoy the pristine beauty of a land where outdoor living is the norm. The mountains, coastlines, beaches and bush-trails of these islands have been sensitively developed to offer an extraordinary range of activities, from walking (tramping) to cycling and any number of adrenaline activities, from jet-boating to bungee-jumping. The landscapes throughout New Zealand are beautiful and extremely varied, but perhaps the western coast of South Island, indented with fjords and lined with soaring mountains, is the most impressive of all. The warm and friendly welcome you’ll receive from New Zealanders wherever you go makes the other-worldly beauty of the place all the more special.
