Australasia can be a difficult continent to define. Is it even a continent? If so, does it include the scattered Pacific islands of Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia? And is Australasia the same thing as Oceania? Well, for our purposes it means the two big hitters, Australia and New Zealand, two of the most captivating and varied destinations on the planet. Escorted touring is a popular way to travel in both countries, allowing you to make the most of the considerable effort it takes to reach the other side of the world.
Australia is a huge country where the majority of the population cling to the coast, leaving the vast ‘Red Centre’ sparsely inhabited. The landscape is incredibly varied, from the tropical north coast of Queensland to the harsh desert of the Outback. Unique wildlife, a fascinating Aboriginal culture and the vibrant marine ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef are just a few of the outstanding attractions on offer. New Zealand is an altogether greener land, a country of staggering natural beauty where you’ll find plunging fjords, glittering glaciers, brilliant blue lakes and the ancient Polynesian culture of the Maori. It’s also a magnet for adventure sports enthusiasts, and for ‘Lord of the Rings’ fans in search of Middle Earth.
