Australia - New Zealand and the South Pacific Holiday

If you’re in search of a holiday where you will have beaches, mountains, tropical rainforests and unusual wildlife within just a short distance—and beautiful weather in which to explore it all—look no further than the South Pacific , New Zealand and right here in Australia . When you plan a getaway on one of these Southern Hemisphere islands, you’ll have the chance to enjoy spectacular stretches of sand, bushwalks through forested hinterlands and Polynesian cultures.

Australia is much too vast to be called “just” an island—it’s a huge country filled with sophisticated cities and beautiful landscapes. In  Melbourne , watch cricket and footy matches, sip coffee in cool graffiti-filled laneways, tour the Royal Botanic Gardens and sample  Yarra Valley  wines.

On the southern shores, the Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most celebrated scenic drives. Visit  Bells Beach , home of world-renowned surf tours, and drive on to see the 12 Apostles natural rock sculptures rising dramatically out of the sea.

Head northeast to the capital city,  Canberra , to see impressive government buildings, monuments and galleries. Continue on to  Sydney , which you’ll know for its striking Opera House and Harbour Bridge, but don’t forget about the beautiful beaches, Taronga Zoo , Hunter Valley  wine region and loads of world-class museums.

The  Gold Coast  and  Sunshine Coast  are known for surfing—see for yourself in the appropriately named Surfers Paradise . Nearby  Brisbane  is a sophisticated city straddling a winding river. Enjoy the koala sanctuary and venture into the hinterland wilderness.

Visit  Port Douglas  and  Cairns  in the far north to see the Great Barrier Reef, ideal for snorkelling, diving or viewing colourful fish and coral from a glass-bottom boat. See water dragons, cassowaries and other animals at the Wildlife Habitat and exotic birds in the Daintree Rainforest.

Fly west to enjoy other incredible adventures, including the giant red rock of Uluru, the  Barossa Valley  wines of  Adelaide  and food and wine tours of  Perth .

Even more adventures await across the Tasman Sea. On New Zealand’s  North Island , head to  Auckland  to sail its lovely harbour and appreciate the multi-ethnic culture and food. Drive to  Rotorua  to experience the sulphur springs, cooking corn on the cob over the hot steam eruptions or relaxing in a natural hot tub. Continue to the southern city of  Wellington , the capital, to enjoy a beautiful harbour surrounded by cultural attractions.

The country’s  South Island  has Mount Cook , glaciers, fjords and blue-green lakes that served as fantasy film settings for  The Hobbit . Stroll through the botanic gardens in  Christchurch , then visit the Canterbury Museum to admire its unique treasures.  Queenstown  is on the bucket list of every adventure seeker, with plenty of opportunities for skiing, rock climbing and bungee jumping.

Elsewhere in the South Pacific, explore islands that were described by author James Michener as having “endless ocean” with “coconut palms nodding gracefully” and “lagoons, lovely beyond description.” Find this beautiful scenery in  FijiSamoa , the  Cook Islands  and  French Polynesia . Learn about the Polynesian explorers who once sailed the high seas in outrigger canoes—or just soak up the sunshine on the legendary beaches. It’s your holiday.
