Australia & New Zealand

Australia

Did you know…..?

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world and has the lowest population density per square kilometre.

Australia is both an island and a continent; it is the largest island but the smallest continent in the world.

Australia is a vast country just waiting to be explored, if you want adventure or a relaxing break there is something for everyone!

New South Wales/Australian Capital Territory

The list of places to see and things to do here is so long you could easily fill a two week holiday in this state alone! This is the home of Sydney and its famous harbour, Hunter Valley, the Blue Mountains, the Capital – Canberra, the snowy mountains and some stunning coastal scenery.

Queensland

One of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations due to its tropical climate. Most of the state's highlights are along the coastline, which stretches from Brisbane to Cape York. The southern coastline is a haven for surfers and beach lovers, whilst the north is home to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world and a must see for all.

South Australia

This is the 3rd largest state and borders all other mainland states. It has a distinctive variation in landscape, from striking coastlines of sandy beaches and steep cliffs, to the desert-like terrain in the north. You will find desert towns such as Coober Pedy (famous for its Opals) and the ancient beauty of Flinders Ranges.

Victoria

Victoria is the smallest mainland state, but boasts a wealth of natural wonders. This state is known for its unusual landforms, including the Twelve Apostles, eroded limestone rock formations that can be seen from the Great Ocean Road. The cooler climate in the east makes it a perfect setting for many vineyards that produce some world class wines. Melbourne is the capital, this being the 2nd most populated city in Australia.

Tasmania

Located 185 miles south of mainland Australia, Tasmania is considered by many to be one of the most picturesque islands. Today it is most famous for its World Heritage wilderness areas, which occupy 20 percent of the island.

Western Australia

Flanked by sparkling Waters of the Indian Ocean, this is the largest state, occupying one third of the Australian continent. To the south visitors can see spectacular coastal scenery, surfing beaches, limestone caves and vineyards of the Margaret River region. To the North are vast unspoilt beaches and coral reefs making it ideal for scuba diving, snorkelling, or meeting the friendly dolphins of Monkey Mia.

Northern Territory

Home to the true Outback! And Australia’s most famous icon – Uluru (Ayers Rock) although this is an area six times the size of Great Britain, it has a low population and is mostly untouched outback and wilderness area. The Aboriginal people still own almost 50% of the land here; there are many opportunities to explore the regions unique culture.

New Zealand

New Zealand is often described as the world in miniature, with magnificent coastal scenery, snow capped mountains, spectacular fjords and dense rainforest along with unique geothermal activity and Maori culture.

It comprises of three main islands, North, South and Stewart Island, all having a varied landscape. This coupled with the fact that there are less that 4 million people makes New Zealand a very special and unique place to visit.
