The World Escape

From £1579
Duration From 30 Days
The best way to see North America and maybe even squeeze in a ski season, before heading to Australia to soak up the sun. This is the only way to escape!

Fly out and begin your journey through North America, making it all the way from New York to Vancouver, crossing the Rockies and the Great Plains. Then, fly from Canada to Auckland and spend as much time here as you can, making sure to explore both beautiful islands properly – you’ll need at least a month!

Next, head to Cairns on Australia’s North East coast and take the opportunity to snorkel or dive the stunning Great Barrier Reef; the largest living organism on Earth. Make your way south past quaint Townsville and stopping off at beautiful Magnetic Island, sail through the sparkling Whitsunday Islands on an old-fashioned tall ship or shiny new catamaran. Enjoy a four-wheel, self-drive excursion on Fraser Island; the world’s largest sand island and hang out with the sharks & dingoes, then party the night away in Brisbane’s nightclubs, learn to surf in Byron Bay and keep going until you reach Sydney where you’ll discover the real city gapper lifestyle.

Finally, fly directly out of Sydney into bustling Hong Kong. This humming metropolis will provide the ultimate Asian experience with its diverse districts, intriguing mix of cultures, hectic nightlife, busy street markets and vast shopping plazas to fill those last remaining kilos in your backpack with handcrafted souvenirs and the latest gadgets before heading home!
