Australasia & South Pacific

Call 01242 547 826 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Australasia. The name alone immediately conjures up images of vast landscapes of deep red earth, undulating green vistas and cerulean seas, all set against an endless cobalt sky. In a region so far from the United Kingdom it's easy to understand its draw: travel to the ends of the Earth, and you will be rewarded. Australia's modern cities are slick, sophisticated and cosmopolitan, packed with fashionable shops and some of the world's most up and coming restaurant scenes. Then there's the magnificent coastline: a rocky range of outcrops, bluffs and beaches, culminating in the east with the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. And not forgetting the interior, of course – where else is more stereotypically Australian than the hulking, ochre mass of Uluru?

In New Zealand – Middle Earth at end of the world – you'll encounter a population unencumbered by the trappings of western lifestyle, happy to embrace the great outdoors and all its glacier-capped, pasture- swathed, lake-dappled glory. There's a good reason this small, unassuming duo of islands is known as the adventure capital of the world – you can throw yourself off, in and down practically anything.

This corner of the planet is also home to one of Earth's most beautiful nirvanas – the islands of the South Pacific. The Cook Islands, Fiji and Tahiti are the stuff of office-workers' daydreams. Powdery soft beaches, wave-lapped shores and diving that beggars belief. Here you can wallow in lagoons resembling an artist's palette of blues and greens, before gorging on the freshest produces from the seas. It's well worth the long flight.

Australasia with A&K
Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands are a wonderland of natural spectacles, from the Great Barrier Reef and majestic fjords to brooding volcanoes and a kaleidoscope of underwater colours. Yet the region also boasts proud native cultures and pockets of cosmopolitan verve, and only A&K knows how to reveal these countries in all their splendour.

Australia is the world's largest island and is like a nowhere else on earth: a place where an ancient past melds with hyper-sophisticated cities and natural wonders. New Zealand is a spacious country with a dramatic landscape that belies the humble slither on the map, New Zealand's unique Maori heritage, charming cities, outdoor pursuits and world-class food and wine make for a real breath of fresh air. Holidays to Fiji let you experience the cultures and areas that make this extraordinary country one of the most desirable luxury destinations in the world. Tahiti and the Cook Islands preserve the romance of the South Seas, offering visitors the chance to soak up island culture and landscape and relax in total comfort.
