Australia, New Zealand — Introduction
Australia’s an island so vast they declared it a continent. From Queensland to Melbourne and Sydney to Perth this land of colour and contrasts will envelop you in a sense of awe.
With over 10,000 golden beaches it is a sun-seeker’s paradise and a surfer’s dream but it has so much more to offer.
Stretching over 2,000 kilometres along the Queensland coast the Great Barrier Reef is a sight to behold. Better still swim, snorkel, dive or sail there to enjoy it in its full majesty.
New Zealand is the size of Great Britain but is home to just four million people, so there are vast expanses of sparsely populated and timeless landscapes in which to escape the rush of modern life. Here you can revel in lush rainforests, view huge mountain chains, steaming hot springs, sweeping coastlines and magnificent fjords.
It’s a haven for those seeking peace and relaxation as well as a playground for thrill-seekers and adventurers.
The varied and dramatic landscape of New Zealand has ensured its place on celluloid. Films shot among its fields, mountains and coasts include the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Last Samurai.
