Australasia and Pacific Self-drives

Introduction

Australasia is ripe for self-drive travel, with good roads, often free from traffic and countless cities and sights to discover under your own steam.

In Australia, take to the roads in a car or campervan on a tailor-made itinerary crafted to suit your interests. Due to the enormous distances between places, you should focus on a region and really get to know it; start in a cosmopolitan city such as Sydney or Melbourne and then drive one of the classic routes such as the Great Ocean Road or East Coast route to take in must-see highlights and other less-well known gems. Alternatively, escape the crowds and travel from Perth up the west coast to Ningaloo Reef, journey through the remote Kimberley region in the far north west or tackle a circuit of Tasmania to see some unique wildlife and scenery.

In New Zealand, distances are shorter, making much more of the country accessible in the course of a self-drive holiday in New Zealand. Over the course of several weeks, travel throughout North and South Island to see Auckland, Rotorua, Napier and Wellington before catching the ferry to explore Blenheim, Nelson, Kaikoura, Christchurch, Queenstown and the fjords around Milford Sound.

In both instances we can make recommendations relevant for the amount of time you have available to travel and can tailor-make a self-drive holiday to suit your interests.
