  • Australia

    Australia is the world’s sixth largest country (well, continent) and is as vast as it is varied. Only a multi-stop holiday can begin to do it justice, which is easy with plenty of internal flights connecting all the top places that should be on your itinerary. Cosmopolitan cities, unique wildlife, tours of the wine regions, Aboriginal heritage, uncrowded beaches, tropical rainforests and so much more, can easily be savoured in one incredible, luxury Australia holiday. City slickers will find that Australia’s major cities boast all the hallmarks of an enviable lifestyle where shopping opportunities, museums and art galleries meet harbourside bars, green parks, opportunities for dining alfresco and beautiful beaches. Each has its own brand of pulling power: Sydney aims to wow with landmarks including the iconic Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, while Melbourne is known for its charm, festivals and the Melbourne Cup. For wine-connoisseurs, Adelaide is the gateway to the world-renowned Barossa Valley and blissfully remote Perth never fails to attract those looking for truly unspoilt stretches of sand. Make more of the outdoor way of life with a number of special experiences including the chance to explore Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef on a diving trip amongst the corals and technicolour fish, or the opportunity for a sailing trip through the Whitsunday Islands, a little piece of heaven perfect for beach picnics and swimming. Meanwhile, the Gold Coast offers a classic holiday vibe where leisure activities including world-class golf, fishing, surfing, theme parks and nightlife put the cherries on the cake. You may prefer a stroll or a river cruise through the Daintree rainforest, keeping watch for tropical birds and perhaps even a croc or two. Take a guided tour in the Blue Mountains, so-called due to the haze given off by the eucalyptus trees. Keep your eyes peeled for wild kangaroos and koalas. It would be a shame not to learn a little about Aboriginal culture and Uluru (formerly named Ayers Rock), a fascinating place to begin your education on the legends passed down from the ancestors of the Anangu people. For something truly ‘once in a lifetime’, book a table here for fine dining in the desert beneath a star-studded sky that will have you gasping at its beauty.
  • New Zealand

    Should you find yourself with a few free weeks on your hands and wanderlust sets in, destination New Zealand is well worth considering. The two landmasses that make up the country – the North Island and South Islands – in addition to 600-odd smaller islands, have oodles of everything necessary to ensure your time spent here will make memories for life. Think mountains (the Southern Alps), glaciers, wine-tasting, culture, incredible scenery, food, shopping, wildlife, adventure, sports, and the list goes on... Auckland on the North Island is the country’s most populous city, often the point of entry for visitors. There’s an abundance of things to see and do (and eat) here, but it’s an especially good spot for visitors to acclimate themselves with the Māori culture with a visit to the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Adventure seekers can walk (and jump from) the country’s tallest building, the Auckland Sky Tower which is 328 metres high. Those who prefer a more traditional type of walk can go for a hike across the country (literally) as Auckland is situated on New Zealand’s narrowest neck of land. Make your way down to the southernmost tip of the North Island to the country’s cool little capital, Wellington. As New Zealand’s cultural hub, there are many museums and galleries to explore, including The Weta Cave where movie buffs will delight in exploring the exhibits of props for "Lord of the Rings" and other films. Head to the South Island, and if you can tear yourself away from the lakes, mountains, penguins and adorable towns along the way, head to Christchurch, the largest city on the island. Punting on the Avon River and heritage tram rides are highlights. Make time to take the TranzAlpine scenic train journey between Christchurch and Greymouth if you can. The scenery you’ll behold will be well worth it.
