Explore: Australasia and the Pacific Islands
Holidays to Australasia and the Pacific Islands
Throw in its coastal cities – spectacular Sydney and liveable Melbourne of course, but also Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth – and a bewildering roll-call of wildlife from the koala to the quokka and you have a destination few can resist.
The Pacific Islands make every paradise cliché real: white-sand beaches, palm trees, and a laid-back lifestyle you won’t want to leave
Across the Tasman Sea, New Zealand is another extraordinary place. Its landscapes are magnificent enough to star in Lord of the Rings; it is blessed with dramatic mountains, volcanoes and glaciers, a vibrant Maori Culture and a white-knuckle tradition of adrenaline sports. Its cities are spectacular too: cosmopolitan Auckland, the delightful capital Wellington, regenerating Christchurch, and the adventure mecca of Queenstown.
Flung further into the Pacific are some of the most seductive places in the world, stealing every island paradise cliché and making them real: white-sand beaches, palm trees, and a laid-back lifestyle you won’t want to leave. Choose from Fiji, the most popular stop, or Samoa, Tonga, and the luxurious honeymoon destinations of Rarotonga and French Polynesia.
