Awesome two weeks in Australia and New Zealand!
12/06/2018 by First-time traveler Janet B.
We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our 2 week visit to these 2 countries! Since we were only willing to spend 2 weeks, this tour was perfect! We were able to get acquainted with Melbourne, Sydney, Cairns, Queenstown, and Auckland, but our favorites were the optional excursions.

When to visit Australia and New Zealand

Since these are year-round destinations, the best time for group tours to Australia and New Zealand depends on your preferences. When planning a journey to this corner of the globe, remember that the seasons are opposite of what we experience here in North America. Our winter months of December to February are the summer months of these countries.

Our trips to Australia and New Zealand may bring you to several regions where temperatures are different. In January for example, daily highs may be in the 80s F in Melbourne, 90s F in Alice Springs, and 70s F in Rotorua. In July, Melbourne and Rotorua may have daily highs in the 50s F and Alice Springs may be in the 60s.

Packing tips for Australia and New Zealand

When you're preparing for one of our Australia and New Zealand tours, we recommend packing light. You should feel comfortable managing your own baggage at the airport, so one suitcase and one carry-on bag per person is a good rule of thumb.

The sun is strong in these destinations, so be sure to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat for our trips to Australia and New Zealand. Lightweight clothing that you can easily layer, as well as a comfortable pair of walking shoes is important to have, too. After you've booked your trip, we'll send you more detailed information about what to bring on tour.
