Australasia, a vast and diverse region in the southern Pacific Ocean, is a land of captivating beauty, rich cultural diversity and unparalleled adventure.

Stretching from the eastern shores of Australia to the enchanting islands of the South Pacific, Australasia encompasses a wide array of landscapes, ecosystems and cultures. At the heart of this region lies New Zealand, an island nation renowned for its stunning landscapes boasting pristine fjords, snow-capped mountains and lush rainforests. New Zealand's unique blend of Maori heritage and European influence makes it a key highlight within Australasia.

Highlight of Australasia

One of the most iconic highlights of Australasia is New Zealand's Milford Sound, located within the Fiordland National Park on the South Island. Often referred to as the "Eighth Wonder of the World," Milford Sound is a stunning fjord renowned for its awe-inspiring natural beauty. Towering granite peaks rise dramatically from the water, framing lush rainforests and cascading waterfalls. The sight of Mitre Peak, which soars to over 1,600m from the water's edge, is particularly breathtaking.

What to do in Australasia
