Overview of Australasia

 

Australasia (also known as Oceania) is a vast but rather arbitrarily defined expanse of the world. Its countries are connected by the waters of the Pacific Ocean – rather than the solidity of land borders – and perhaps it is this element that gives it a sense of a disparate collection of nations. 

Within Oceania you will find some of the world’s most pristine, white beaches, fringed by coconut palms swaying gently in the breeze. Within the sparkling, clear waters of the Pacific you will find colourful coral reefs that are teeming with marine life. Presiding over the whole continent are the rugged volcanic islands that rise majestically out of the ocean. 

Whether you are looking for remote villages or international cities to enjoy and discover we can help arrange your bespoke travel in Oceania.

Amongst the diverse nations united by the kiss of the Pacific are Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. These are by far the largest three countries in the continent, and the former pair are easily the most popular among international travellers. Are you ready for our luxury Australasian tours? You might choose to follow in the footsteps of the majority of visitors or else strike out for the tiny island nations that make up Polynesia to the east, Melanesia to the west and Micronesia to the north.

Australia is vast. It is the only country that has a whole continental landmass to itself. World famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces – its beaches and deserts, its bush and its Outback – Australia is actually one of the world's most highly urbanised countries. Within cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth you will find a wealth of cosmopolitan attractions.

New Zealand is known in the native Maori language as Aotearoa, which is often translated as ‘the land of the long white cloud’. Maori heritage plays an important part in everyday New Zealand life, and there are abundant opportunities, particularly in the North Island, for you to understand and experience the history and the present-day way of Maori life.

Across its two islands, however, it is a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty. Through jagged mountains, steep fjords, glassy glaciers, pristine lakes, raging rivers, scenic beaches and geothermal wonders you can take in some of the world’s richest zones of flora and most unique fauna. The flightless national symbol of the kiwi is just one of the many delights awaiting nature lovers.

The country is sparsely populated but easily accessible with a well-developed transportation network. 

New Zealand loves to add an adventurous twist to its attractions, so thrill seekers will not be short of chances to ski, jet boat through shallow gorges or bungee jump off just about anything that’s high enough!
