Australasia holidays take you to one of the most breathtakingly diverse places on the planet. This historically isolated region was rumoured to exist in the west for centuries. Now, it has never been easier to explore.

Australia is one of the world’s most charismatic holiday destinations. With its sandy deserts, vibrant coasts, bustling cities and iconic beaches it’s a must-see for any traveller. The sheer range of experiences on offer is breath-taking. Trek the tropical northern swamps, relax on the Gold Coast and swim the Great Barrier Reef or take in the new world cool of Sydney and Melbourne.

South of Australia lies New Zealand - land of jagged mountains, deep sub-tropical rainforests and fiery volcanoes. New Zealand is a unique destination if you’re a hiker, as it boasts incredible walking experiences. There aren’t many places where you can be clambering up a glacier in the morning and relaxing on a beach in the afternoon. New Zealand’s cities are small but perfectly formed. You’ll also quickly discover why Kiwis have a global reputation for warmth and good humour.

Australasia holidays: the southern jewel

The South Pacific is vast, taking up more than 386,000 square miles. The South Pacific is made up of three regions. Polynesia is the easternmost, the location of Hawaii and the jaw-dropping Easter Island. In Melanesia you’ll find Papua New Guinea, a thickly forested island with a dazzling ancient culture, and Fiji - where luxury meets laid-back island life. Micronesia, the third and final region, is made up of thousands of beautiful islands, including Palau – an otherworldly paradise.

There are so many places to visit in Australasia you can never hope to see it all. However, you’re sure to have enormous fun trying. Our multi-centre holidays in Australasia empower you to explore to your heart’s content, with escorted tours, tour packages, holiday packages and more.

Lucy, Destination Specialist

“Don’t miss out on the outback experience during your Australia holiday. While the majority of major cities hug the coast, this vast country’s wide open plains are like nowhere else on Earth. Consider booking a tour with an indigenous guide to learn more about the culture and history of the first Australians.”

Destination Specialist
Charlie, Destination Manager

“In the Southern Hemisphere you’ll see completely different constellations to those you’re used to in the north. Keep an eye out for the Southern Cross, the Flying Fish and the Keel.”
