Travellers often combine their South Pacific trip with Australia and New Zealand. It really is the logical choice , as these two countries are very close together. However, we definitely recommend that you allow at least 15 days for this exciting combo. Distances in Australia are vast and there is so much to see and do. Australia is famous for cosmopolitan cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. A big highlight for a lot of travellers, is snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef. And no itinerary is complete without a visit to Uluru (Ayers Rock) - its an experience like no other. However, on the other hand, New Zealand is very much an 'action and outdoor' destination. From hiking the many national parks, jet boating down remote rivers, kayaking and so much more.
It is essential important to know the climate weather differences between Australia and New Zealand. We recommend the best time to travel both Australia and New Zealand, is between March and October. The Summer season in Australia (Nov-Mar) is often too hot or wet! Contact us for any questions and check how the planning process works.
