Australia & New Zealand 


Wonderful adventures await for you Down Under. Fun cities, endless wilderness, gorgeous beaches and wild life like no other place on earth.  We recommend finishing a trip to the region with some R&R on Bali. 




What We Love

  • Australia’s wilderness—from the Great Barrier Reef to vast deserts to rocky ocean cliffs—is home to iconic wildlife and aboriginal peoples. Exploring the world Down Under is made all the more appealing with stops at cosmopolitan cities in spectacular settings.
  • Taking a nocturnal tour on unspoiled Kangaroo Island, searching for tiny penguins, wallabies, koalas, and the island's titular kangaroos.
  • Staying in luxury tented camps while exploring the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
  • Flying to the oasis of Lizard Island, a secluded national park accessible only by private plane—the perfect place to adventure into the Great Barrier Reef or relax on powdery beaches.

Things To See & Do

  • From Melbourne, cruise down Great Ocean Road along the southern coast of Victoria, past huge cliffs and roaring seas, discovering charming hamlets, tranquil coves, and secluded beaches.
  • Visit the Sydney Opera House, an architectural legend.
  • After a walk through sand dunes, spinifex country, mulga woodlands, and desert oak communities, meet at Uluru (Ayers Rock) for sundowners and watch as the rock changes colors with the setting sun.
  • Check out Tasmania’s charming British colonial towns.
  • Explore the Kimberley in Australia’s northwest region, home to one of the most fascinating parks in the country: Purnululu National Park. Take in the Bungle Bungle Range—beehive-shaped mountains formed 350 million years ago—on a scenic flight, on foot, or on ATVs.

New Zealand

What We Love

  • For a small island country, New Zealand packs a punch with one of the highest concentrations of natural wonders on Earth: geothermal pools, brooding volcanoes, majestic peaks, dense forests, deep fjords, and sunny beaches.
  • The national All Blacks rugby team confronts its rivals each game with the Haka, an iconic ancestral war dance of New Zealand’s native Maori people.
  • Visiting the bucolic Hobbiton movie set, where “The Lord of the Rings” was filmed.
  • Boarding an America’s Cup sailing yacht at the Viaduct in Auckland for a cruise around Hauraki Gulf.
  • Exploring the braided channels of the Dart River by jet boat, absorbing views of stunning snow-capped mountains, ancient native forests, waterfalls, and glacial valleys.

Things To See & Do 

  • Stay in Queenstown, the center of activities and restaurants, as well as the jumping-off point for all the outdoor adventures Kiwis are famous for.
  • Stop by Rotorua, New Zealand’s cultural heartland, where the Earth’s crust is so thin that it bubbles and steams to the surface.
  • Check out the Auckland War Memorial Museum, which offers great insight into the people, flora, fauna, and landforms of NZ. The institution houses a superb collection of Polynesian artifacts, including an 80-foot Maori war canoe from 1836.
  • Earn your wine by touring Napier, the Kiwis’ vineyard country, by kayak, horseback, or whitewater raft—then take a break on one of the gorgeous local beaches.
  • Sail through Milford Sound, a picture-perfect fjord.
  • For the truly adventurous, consider trekking the Te Araroa, a long-distance hiking route that spans both islands.
