Although Australasia is technically comprised of many countries, there are just two which dominate when it comes to backpacker tours: Australia and New Zealand. And sometimes Fiji.
Tours in both Australia and New Zealand are a great option if you're hoping to meet people and share your adventures with likeminded friends. You could spend a lifetime trying to see all the sights Australia and New Zealand have to offer, so tours are a great option in that sense because they have a way of condensing the very best bits into one convenient package.
Australia has some extraordinary natural and manmade wonders to check out, including Uluru in the Red Centre, the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland and the city of Sydney in New South Wales. Similarly, New Zealand will have you frantically reaching for your camera as you pass sights like Milford Sound, Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty.
