Australia & New Zealand

Compass Expeditions offer some of the most unique down-under tours on first-class motorcycles. From the renowned Great Ocean Road and famous red centre of Australia to the other-worldly glaciers and mountain peaks of New Zealand – sightseeing the vastly varied nature and cultures of these two countries is like nowhere else on earth, especially from the seat of a BMW bike.

Adventure bike in Australia, one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. Come along for one of the best Australian adventure tours available. Discover the ochre deserts of the outback and cosmopolitan cities that regularly top ‘world’s most liveable’ lists. A world of bright blue skies, sun-drenched beaches, remote gorges, wineries, rainforests, hidden swimming holes and ancient Aboriginal cultures awaits.

The best way to travel to New Zealand. Although much smaller in size, does not compromise on breathtaking scenery. Our New Zealand tour will leave you awestruck. From the endless pristine coastline of the North Island, with volcanic black sand beaches and thermal hot water springs to the snow-capped mountains, glacial lakes and dream-like views of the South Island.

Africa – Week 7
