Australia & New Zealand

From the renowned Great Ocean Road and famous red centre of Australia to the other-worldly glaciers and mountain peaks of New Zealand – the vastly varied nature and cultures of these two countries is like nowhere else on earth.

In Australia, one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, 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.

New Zealand, although much smaller in size, does not compromise on breath-taking scenery. 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.
