Holidays to Australia & New Zealand

A great holiday to Australia and New Zealand starts with great planning. You can adopt or adapt any of the holiday ideas above or ask us to prepare a tailor made itinerary especially for you.

It is a good idea to check out the separate Australia and New Zealand pages of this website to choose the things you want to do and places you want to see – all of these can be combined into one great holiday by your personal consultant.

Holiday Options

Decide, too, how you like travelling. Do you enjoy escorted and small group tours or do you want the freedom of the open road on a self drive or motorhome holiday? Or perhaps you prefer a more relaxed holiday style, staying in city centre hotels or regional resorts and exploring at leisure.

Whatever you choose, you will find so much to do in each country, you won’t want to come home.
