Epic  Australasia tours

Australasia may be on the other side of the world, but the rewards when you get there are well worth the trip. Choose one of our epic Australia tours and tick off iconic travel sights such as Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru. Or head to the crisp, unspoiled landscapes of New Zealand for superlative natural scenery and adventures in the outdoors. Our Australasia holidays include escorted tours and Cruise & Tour itineraries showcasing all the highlights, and some lesser-known gems too. So which country will you choose?

Australia is a colossal country of extraordinary contrasts. Most of it is wide red desert interspersed with bush and scrub under a scorching blue sky – an ancient landscape that has changed little in millennia. But then, dotted along the coasts between these vast tracts of land you drive into cool, free-spirited cities whose culture, mood and architecture are as progressive as they come. Sydney is sophisticated and glamorous; Melbourne creative and colourful; Brisbane is dynamic; while quaint Adelaide and big, bold Perth offer compelling contrasts too. Alice Springs in the Great Red Centre is (quite literally) a city apart. It lives and breathes authentic Aussie spirit and is gateway to landmarks including Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

Soaring snow-capped mountains, pristine green plains, glittering blue lakes, gigantic creeping fjords… New Zealand has it all. Larger than the UK but with a tiny fraction of the population, it’s cinematic open spaces and jaw-dropping beauty make it one of the most popular destinations for outdoor - and extreme - sports in the world. But New Zealand also has sophisticated cities and a rich cultural seam that runs from the tip of its North Island to Queenstown in the South.

Can’t decide between the Land Down Under and the Land of the Long White Cloud? See both, on one of our combined grand tours of Australia and New Zealand.

What our experts love about Australasia

Head to Australia between October and March, to escape the British winter for the sunshine filled Australian summer! September and October are particularly good months to visit Tropical Northern Queensland and the Red Centre when temperatures are a little cooler than in the height of the summer months and waters are clearer for peak Great Barrier Reef viewing.

What are the best places to visit in Australasia?

Touring in Australasia offers almost endless possibilities for travellers. Australia’s highlights include pulse-racing cities like Perth and Sydney and signature sights like the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru, as well as fascinating culture and the ethereal, almost unimaginable scale of the Australian Outback. New Zealand, with its cool, crisp, wide-open spaces, is a nirvana for lovers of the outdoors. Visitors come for natural wonders such as the Franz Joseph Glacier and Milford Sound, uncover ancient Moari heritage and spend time in creative, cosmopolitan cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Here are a few of our Australasia must-sees.

More information about Australasia

Our holidays to Australia and New Zealand are expertly designed by our team of Australasia specialists, and are some of the highest rated of our entire collection when it comes to customer satisfaction. You’ll visit highlights and hidden gems, and (depending on your chosen itinerary) travel by coach, boat, train and 4WD as you discover these fantastic countries.

Your holiday doesn’t have to start and end with your tour. We can add stopovers, arrange extra nights in Australia, and sort out alternative flights if you’d like to visit friends or family before or after the tour. If you’ve got the time, you could even combine two itineraries – perfect if you want in-depth tours of both Australia and New Zealand. Speak to one of our travel advisors and they can help you to plan your dream trip.

Being south of the Equator, the seasons in Australasia are directly opposite to ours. So tours of Australia and New Zealand during our winter promise blue skies, warm sunshine and a welcome respite from the wind and rain back home. As a rough guide, December to February is summertime; March to May is autumn; June to August is winter and September to November is spring.

Australasia is a region in the Pacific Ocean that includes the countries of Australia (with Tasmania), New Zealand, New Guinea and neighbouring islands.

In Australia, a 10% tip for good service is fine. It’s a similar story in New Zealand - a 10% tip is welcomed, but not expected.

Choosing a holiday or tour in Australasia is just so exciting. Whether you’re heading to Australia with its sophisticated cities and untamed Outback, or to New Zealand with its supreme beauty and pristine landscapes, you’re in for a treat. It’s a long way to travel but the rewards are huge, and the memories will last a lifetime.

Visa and Mastercard are the most widely accepted credit cards in Australasia. Whichever credit or debit card you use, we recommend you check with the provider about any foreign usage fees.

Tap water is safe to drink in large towns and cities in Australia and New Zealand. In remote areas we suggest you drink bottled water which is widely available throughout Australasia.
