Australasia and Pacific

Australasia and Pacific holidays


Australasia and the South Pacific offer travellers a wide range of holiday options and experiences for those looking for an Australia holiday, New Zealand holiday or chance to explore the picture-postcard islands close by.

People drawn to Australia and New Zealand by the wonderful combination of sights, wildlife and hospitable people will discover vast open spaces and vibrant cities, stunning panoramas and unspoilt beaches. And if food and drink are close to your heart, Pacific-rim cuisine has a well-deserved reputation, especially for seafood and world-class wine.

In Papua New Guinea you'll find one of the most culturally diverse countries on earth and, in the South Pacific, some of the most beautiful. Both can be visited independently or as extensions to Australia and New Zealand holidays.
