When Do You Want To Go?

Australasia

Comprised of Australia, New Zealand and a number of neighbouring islands, Australasia is about as far away from the UK as possible and yet feels like home, in the sunshine of course! 

From the golden sands of Australia’s endless beaches to the red hot desert in the middle, the lush green tropical north and the miles of reef bursting with colourful aquatic life.  With so many incredible sights and experiences it can be difficult to know where to begin, from Sydney, one of the worlds most iconic cities to The Mystical Blue Mountains, or the impressively wild Kimberly to vibrant cosmopolitan Melbourne.  Sail the idyllic waters of the Whitsunday Islands or soak up the laid-back surf vibes of Byron Bay, enjoy an al fresco sunset dinner beside Uluru or discover Aboriginal customs in Daintree National Park.  Ride the luxury Ghan train straight through the centre or perhaps the Indian Pacific train out to the West Coast.  

Australia’s neighbour New Zealand is an adventure wonderland and a nature lovers dream, with spectacular scenery at every turn!  Enormous Glaciers, volcanoes and geothermal hot spots, beautiful lakes and fjords, remote island sanctuaries and rolling vineyards.  Take a spectacular ride on the TranzAlpine train, hike the Franz Josef a glacier, cruise the silent waterways of Milford Sound beside the bottlenose dolphins, taste the delicious New Zealand wines, canoe down the Dart River, watch the Geysers explode in Rotorua and enjoy a traditional Maori feast.
