Your choices in the Pacific are diverse: from the vast wonders of Australia, to epic New Zealand, and tropical Fiji, some of the highlights include exploring the Blue Mountains, diving the Great Barrier Reef, encountering wildlife in Kangaroo Island, learning about Aboriginal culture in Uluru and Kakadu in Australia; in New Zealand enjoy a heli-flight to Milford Sound, sailing in the Bay of Islands, whale watching in Kaikoura, Maori history and geysers in Rotorua and kayaking in Abel Tasman National Park. Finally, in Fiji, explore the gorgeous islands, surf, snorkel, dive, kayak, or simply chill out.
You can make your trip to the Pacific fulfilling by giving back; including:
– Assisting with wildlife surveys, including kangaroos, wallabies and koalas in Australia;
– Maintaining penguin habitats in New Zealand;
– Conserving native sea chicks in New Zealand;
– Building a bunkhouse at a home for disadvantaged youth in Fiji.
There are some gorgeous eco-luxury properties to boot in the Pacific; such as One & Only Wolgan Valley in Australia; the Fiordland Lodge in New Zealand, and Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Fiji.
