Adventure holidays in Australia and New Zealand
Australasia has so much to offer in the way of adventure and activity holidays; Australia and New Zealand are virtually synonymous with adrenaline sports and the outdoors. There are also some exceptional walking holidays in New Zealand.
In Australia go bush walking, climbing or set out in a 4WD to discover the wild landscapes. Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, balloon over the Outback, take a helicopter safari, snorkel with whale sharks or kayak around Hobart to get to know the country.
New Zealand and especially Queenstown, is the home to a number of adrenaline-based activities including bungee jumping and zorbing. Mildly tamer are jet boating and heli-hiking on the Franz Josef or Fox Glaciers. Take to the countryside and go tramping to discover some of the hidden corners of the country; tackle one of the Great Walks such as the Milford Track or try the Tongariro Crossing, reputedly the finest one day walk in the world. Swim with dolphins or go whale watching, ride horses on the beach or keep an eye out for kiwi...the options are endless.
These options are just a small selection of what's available to do in Australasia; talk to a destination specialist to tailor-make your trip to your personal preferences.
