Did you know this fact?

Australia is home to the world’s longest continuous fence, known as the Dingo Fence or Dog Fence. Stretching over 5,600 kilometers (3,500 miles), it was originally built in the late 19th century to protect southeastern Australia’s sheep flocks from the threat of wild dogs, particularly dingoes. This massive structure remains a testament to Australia’s innovative approach to managing its unique ecological challenges.

About Australia

Millions of years in the making, Australia has an extraordinary history. History lovers will be richly rewarded with one-of-a-kind experiences that delve into the backstory of the island nation.

Dinosaurs lived from about 250 to 65 million years ago and there’s plenty of fossil evidence that shows a diverse range roamed Australia’s ancient lands. Australia is home to the Aboriginal people -the world’s oldest continuous culture, as well as Australians who identify with more than 270 ancestries. Prior to the gold rush, most immigrants were of British or Irish descent. The discovery of gold in the 1850s saw an influx of people coming from Continental Europe, China, and to a lesser degree, The United States, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Today you can wander any Australian city and see an A to Z of ethnicities, from Greek and Lebanese, to Vietnamese and Japanese.

In Australia, you’ll find an incredible bounty of jaw-dropping natural wonders. From peculiar rock formations, bubble-gum pink lakes, idyllic waterfalls and crystal-clear ocean vistas. The diversity is second to none. There’s the Great Barrier Reef which is the world’s largest coral reef system and home to the most amazing diverse marine life. Above the water, the reef is neighboured by picturesque tropical islands and some of the world’s most beautiful sun-soaked beaches.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta rise from the earth in all their red glory just 30 kilometres (18.6 miles) from each other. Measuring 348 metres (1140 feet) high and 9.4 kilometres (5.8 miles) in circumference, Uluru is the largest sandstone monolith in the world, while Kata Tjuta is made up of 36 giant domes spread over more than 20 kilometres (12.4 miles).

New Zealand is home to the world’s smallest dolphin species, the Hector’s dolphin. Named after Sir James Hector, the first curator of the Colonial Museum in Wellington (now the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa), these cute marine mammals are found only in New Zealand’s coastal waters, delighting visitors with their playful antics and distinctive markings.

About New Zealand

The population of five million people (the approximate population of Melbourne) occupy a land area comparable to the United Kingdom spread from the sub-tropical north to the cooler temperatures of the south. You can expect varied scenery within short distances, you get an amazing variety of landscape and environments often in close proximity. A day’s travel might take you across fertile river plains, through rolling green-pastured hills, into an intermontane basin of semi-dessert grasslands, and across a tussock and snow-covered alpine pass. New Zealand offers so much, from the sub-tropical beaches and dunes of the far North Island, to the spectacular geothermal and cultural centre of Rotorua to the dramatic alpine peaks, fiords and glaciers of the South Island – throw in some of the world’s best wine regions here and there as well as some amazing food and coffee throughout the country – and you have a blessed destination you must visit!
New Zealand is a vibrant and friendly place blessed with majestic scenery and a huge range of experiences for visitors to enjoy. New Zealand is an English speaking country and welcoming to visitors, our country is routinely recognised as a top travel destination.

The islands that make up New Zealand or Aotearoa in Maori have a relatively short history. Discovered and settled by Māori in the 1200s, and unknown to Europeans until the 1600s, New Zealand is a young country. Today New Zealand is a multicultural place. The population has almost doubled since 1970 to reach five million in 2019. Nearly 30% of people are not born in the country, so this growth has come with an increasing richness of cultural diversity. Diversity that complements the richness of the indigenous Māori culture, which can be experienced throughout New Zealand.

Bay Of Islands

The Bay of Islands is a subtropical micro-region in the North of the North Island, known for its stunning beaches & important New Zealand history. For those that love beaches and water activities, it's paradise. The Bay of Islands encompasses 144 islands between Cape Brett and the Purerua Peninsula and includes the boutique towns of Opua, Paihia, Russell and Kerikeri as well as Waitangi, where a very special part of New Zealand history occurred. There are a number of excellent ways to experience the region, one of the most popular activities being a trip to Cape Brett and the ‘Hole in the Rock’ on Piercy Island. A passenger ferry service runs between Paihia and Russell, while a vehicle ferry provides a link between Opua and Russell. On land, enjoy beautiful river and seaside walking tracks or encounter the mighty Kauri Tree in pristine subtropical rainforest. This is a very beautiful and popular part of the country and a favourite with visitors and New Zealanders alike.


Rotorua is an inland city that is very well known for its geothermal activity, Maori culture, 18 lakes, three major rivers in a beautiful natural environment. Rotorua is a major destination for both domestic and international tourists. It is known for its geothermal activity, and features geysers and colourful pools as well as bubbling hot mud pools. This thermal activity is sourced to the Rotorua Caldera, in which the town lies. In Te Puia’s Whakarewarewa Valley, there are bubbling mud pools and the 30m-tall Pohutu Geyser, which erupts many times daily. It’s also home to a living Maori village and the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, with traditional wood carving and weaving schools. Rotorua was one of the first places in the country to host tourists who came to experience the healing properties of the geothermal waters.


There are few places on earth like Kaikōura, a small coastal village that has some stunning views of both mountains and sea combined with a relaxed beachside vibe. The towering snow-clad mountain range known as the Seaward Kaikōura Mountains provide a stunning backdrop over the town centre which extends out to the Kaikōura Peninsula, where the waves of the deep blue Pacific Ocean roll in. These mountains rise to heights of 2600m and the undersea canyon that comes to meet them, plunges to depths of over 1200m very close to shore, these two factors alone make Kaikōura incredibly unique. There are not many places where you can be on top of a snow-capped mountain in the morning, whale watching or dolphin / seal swimming in the afternoon and then taking in a gorgeous sunset while feasting upon fresh seafood from the very ocean you are sitting beside.

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is a stunning and famous fiord in the southwest of New Zealand’s South Island. It’s known for towering Mitre Peak, plus rainforests and waterfalls like Stirling and Bowen falls, which plummet down its sheer sides. When it rains in Milford Sound, and it often does, those waterfalls multiply with magnificent effect. Whatever the weather it really is a breath-taking sight. Famously described by Rudyard Kipling as the 'eighth wonder of the world', Milford Sound was carved by glaciers during the ice ages. The fiord is home to fur seal colonies, penguins and dolphins. Milford Discovery Centre and Underwater Observatory offers views of rare black coral and other marine life. Boat tours are a popular way to explore the inky waters of this pristine natural wonder.

Mt Cook

Aoraki / Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand standing at 3,724 metres. Located within Aoraki Mount Cook National Park which is home of the highest mountains and the longest glaciers. It is alpine in the purest sense - with skyscraping peaks, glaciers and permanent snow fields, all set under a star-studded sky. It is part of the Southern Alps, the mountain range which runs the length of the South Island. A popular tourist destination, it is also a favourite challenge for mountain climbers. Mt Cook, helped Sir Edmund Hillary to develop his climbing skills in preparation for the conquest of becoming the first person to climb Mt Everest. Far from city lights, the stargazing here is magnificent - Aoraki Mount Cook National Park forms the majority of New Zealand's only International Dark Sky Reserve

Franz Josef

Franz Josef is the name of both the glacier and the nearby village, the small but lively Franz Josef Waiau village is surrounded by lush rainforest with the high snow-capped Alps above. Within a short distance of the village are a number of options for taking in the natural attractions including a cycleway, walks of varying length, guided walks, kayaking, and action adventures like rafting or skydiving. Franz Josef Glacier is one of the steepest glaciers in New Zealand, descending from its origins high in the Southern Alps deep into the lush native rainforest of Westland's National Park. It also moves faster than your average glacier, with the main ice fall capturing speeds of up to five metres.


Queenstown, is a stunning resort town which sits on the shores of the South Island’s Lake Wakatipu, set against the dramatic backdrop of the Southern Alps mountain range. Renowned for adventure sports, it’s also a base for exploring the region’s vineyards and historic mining towns. There's bungee jumping off Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge and jet-boating on the Shotover and Dart rivers. In winter, there's skiing on the slopes of The Remarkables and Coronet Peak mountains. Surrounded by towering mountains, positioned on the edge of a lake, Queenstown is a hub of adventure, thrumming with adrenaline and an buzzing with a carefree sense of fun. While many adventure seekers come to Queenstown for the adrenaline rush, extreme activities aren’t the only options here. Luckily this stunning resort town and its surrounding area boasts many things to see, do, eat, drink and explore for everyone.

Abel Tasman National Park

Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand's smallest national park – but one of the most easily accessible and beautiful coastal paradise settings. Abel Tasman National Park is at the north end of New Zealand’s South Island. It’s known for the Abel Tasman Coast Track, a long trail winding over beaches and across ridges between Marahau in the south and Wainui in the north. The headland at Separation Point is home to New Zealand fur seal colonies. Little blue penguins, bottlenose dolphins and seals inhabit the Tonga Island Marine Reserve. The park can be explored from land, on the water, or in the air, with cruises, water taxi services, kayaking options, heli-tours and sailing catamarans through these beautiful coastal waters.

Stewart Island

Stewart Island is New Zealand's third largest island, situated 30 kilometres south of the South Island, across the Foveaux Strait. This is one magical spot, in the Māori language, it’s known as Rakiura which means ‘the land of glowing skies’. You’ll get an inkling why when you see the Aurora Australis which often appears in these southern skies. Stewart Island is a haven for brown kiwi or Tokoeka, which outnumber humans on the island and are active day and night. Blue penguins and the rare yellow-eyed penguins waddle among the rocks. Offshore on Ulva Island, you’ll find a predator-free bird sanctuary with dozens of native species. A large part of the island is a National Park with hundreds of kilometres of walking tracks. Many people come here for hiking and birdwatching, or just relaxing in this beautiful and largely untouched environment.
