Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea
In Australia, remote beaches frame prehistoric rainforests, inviting daydreams and adventure. Encounter windswept deserts that blow across rustic towns where locals chat about art and politics at the corner pub. And, stumble upon coastal cities that come alive with the sights and sounds of culture and cuisine and fall asleep to the sounds of wonderful wildlife.
While visiting New Zealand, indulge in European flavors with a touch of the exotic, wine regions that have earned international recognition and a vast range of outdoor activities for many lifestyles. From thrill-seeking adventures to relaxed waterfall walks, New Zealand has something for everyone.
Travel exotic Papua New Guinea and explore wild beauty that draws visitors from all over the world. Hike dense mountain ranges and visit rural villages untouched by tourism; get up-close and personal with breathtaking Queen Alexandra Birdwing butterflies, and dive bountiful coral reefs.
