Occupying the top on many travel wish-lists, a holiday combining Australia and New Zealand is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. In Australia we'll spend a day at the Great Barrier, before stopping in Sydney with its glorious harbor and beaches. With incredible scenery (majestic mountain ranges, stunning alpine lakes, craggy fjords, ancient forests and endless miles of beaches), a vibrant culture, and award-winning wines, New Zealand is worth the journey as we visit both the North and South Islands.
