There’s no better place to get away from it all than Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. These vacation spots offer beaches, entertainment, and shopping in a mild climate. Some say Australia, with its low population, is at the edge of the world. Not far from this "down under" country in the balmy South Pacific is New Zealand, divided into two islands. This area is a popular destination and travellers looking to book rooms should make their reservations early.
Vacation packages come in all shapes and sizes, and spending time here can be magical. Go snorkeling in the crystal clear blue green waters off the coast to explore the Great Barrier Reef, and enjoy an Outback barbecue afterwards. Cruise Milford Sound in New Zealand or take a tram ride through Melbourne. Go on a hike to see the native wildlife, and learn about the area's aboriginal history and culture.
Many consider Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific one of the best places in the world to take a vacation. Grab the camera and photograph kangaroos, koala bears, and kiwi birds up close and personal. Visit Sydney, Auckland, and Queenstown to find the best shopping. Cruise Sydney Harbour, and then come back after sunset for a special treat to marvel at the beauty of the lights on the water.
There are plenty of lodging choices and it's not hard to find the perfect place to stay. Find top hotels in Australia in the Melbourne area or fine New Zealand hotels in Queenstown.
When looking at hotel prices finding discount rates before reserving a room is advisable. Another option is to stay at one of the many area bed and breakfasts. New Zealand has hundreds of such places. There are even more spread out across South and Western Australia, the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales, and Tasmania.
