Australia is a vast land – three million square miles to be exact – that is nothing short of extraordinary. There are few places in the world that offer as much diversity as Australia.
Australia is the hard-baked earth of the Red Centre and the colourful coral of the Great Barrier Reef. It is the mystical stories of Aboriginal Dreamtime, tropical rainforests and glorious white-sand beaches. Between the miles of coastline, the immense outback desert and iconic city sights; you will never be short of things to do in Australia.
Alongside incredible natural beauty, Australia holidays offer the chance to explore exciting cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Here you’ll find world-class cuisine from high-end fusion restaurants to off-the-back-of-the-boat seafood. Enjoy their booming café culture – one to rival any European city. Or sample the fine wines of the surrounding vineyards such as Hunter Valley or Margaret River.
Then, of course, there are the famous beaches. Watch the pro surfers at Bondi Beach or relax on the powdery shores of the Whitsunday Islands. Pair this with the easy-going Aussie lifestyle and you’ve got one outstanding holiday destination.
Sail, snorkel, hike, swim, sightsee, relax. Whatever you want from your travels Down Under, holidays to Australia have it all.
If you’re planning a holiday to New Zealand, make sure you pack your camera. There's a reason it's labelled one of the most photogenic countries in the world. New Zealand’s stunning landscapes will blow you away.
New Zealand is a compact country; just 1,000 miles from the tip of the North Island to the toe of the South Island, and only 280 miles at its widest point. It's a small place in a spectacular package.
Blessed by Mother Nature, New Zealand is famous for its exquisite natural beauty. From majestic alpine peaks and lush sub-tropical rainforests to spouting geysers, one day is seldom like the next. It’s no wonder that its landscapes featured in both the Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings films. If you’re a fan, be sure to take the tour of Hobbiton and grab a drink in The Green Dragon Inn.
As for Kiwi cities, again, each offers something different. Wellington – New Zealand’s capital city – Auckland and Christchurch lure the foodies and art crowd. While Queenstown is an adventurer’s playground.
So whether you want to discover the country’s fascinating Maori culture, go wildlife spotting or simply soak up the breathtaking scenery, New Zealand holidays tick every box.
