The continent of Oceania is sometimes referred to as Australia, however in reality it is so much more – think New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and a whole host of Pacific islands. There’s so much to explore in the land down under.
The vast country of Australia, home to a rich Aboriginal heritage, combined with beautiful beaches, world-class food, award-winning wine regions, stunning architecture, wildlife, and nature – there is so much to discover!
Whether you’re looking for an adventure in the Australian outback, a vibrant city experience, or to discover some of the outstanding wildlife either on land or in the ocean, we have options to suit your requirements. Touring holidays are ideal here to help you see as much as possible, and with a huge number of options available we’d love to talk you through the possibilities. Internal flights are plentiful, so it’s easily possible to visit a few areas in one trip if this is something from your bucket list, however each state and territory has plenty to offer if you want to delve deeper into an area.
With seasons being in reverse to the UK, and a landmass the size of Europe, you can plan a holiday to Australia at any time of year, however the best time to visit is generally the spring (September to November or autumn (March to May). Summer temperatures (December to February) can regularly exceed 35C, so can get unbearable.
A land of adventure awaits when you visit New Zealand, with a never-ending choice of activities to keep you thrilled and entertained, no matter whether you’re a solo traveller looking to join a group tour, a romantic couple’s escape, or an unforgettable family experience.
Rafting, hiking, cruising, skiing, diving, sailing, and plenty more will keep your adrenaline going, or perhaps you want to learn about the Maori culture, take a relaxing wine tour, or lose yourself in the magical mystery of Middle Earth as you explore the film locations of The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings.
If you’re looking for an escape to a remote island in the South Pacific, then we’ll help you craft a tour to meet your interests. You can visit Samoan or Fijian villages, bathe in the turquoise waters of the Pacific, or indulge in tropical specialities. Options include the Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji, Tahiti, Samoa, and plenty of others, so multi-centre holidays are a popular option.
Perhaps you’d like to add a visit to the Pacific islands onto a longer trip to Australia or New Zealand, or embark on a voyage aboad a luxury cruise to take in the sights, wildlife and gastronomy.
