Australasia Tours & Adventures

Guided backpacker experiences in Australasia

Technically Australasia is comprised of many countries, but for our purposes there are just two that dominate the scene when it comes to backpacker tours: Australia and New Zealand (honourable mention to Fiji, we mean no disrespect, bro).

There’s a reason these countries – particularly Australia – are so popular with young travellers despite being almost unconscionably far away. Neither has a language barrier for UK travellers, and both have incredibly well-developed tourist infrastructure and a frankly stupid amount of things to see and do. So many, in fact, that travelling there independently can be an overwhelming experience. You could spend a lifetime trying to see everything Australia and New Zealand have to offer between them. Tours are a great way to condense the very best bits into one convenient package, and remove any stress involved in seeing them. Ripper.

Touring Australasia

Although there are tours that will take you to multiple countries in Australasia, you’re more likely to see them individually. Australia is so big that you can comfortably spend a year there and not see anywhere near all of it. Popular tours include travelling deep into the Red Centre to see the natural wonder of Uluru, heading out to dive or snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, or exploring the iconic city of Sydney in New South Wales. Tours up and down either coast are also popular.

New Zealand isn’t quite so vast, but it still packs an impressive amount into its two islands. Auckland and Wellington will be your main city stops, but it’s really all about the natural wonders here – Milford Sound, Rotorua, Fox Glacier, Tongariro National Park, Bay of Islands… we’d be here a long time if we tried to list them all. Expect tours to be active. If you’re into extreme activities, pick a tour that takes you to Queenstown, world capital of bungee jumps, skydives, and anything else that’ll make you vomit from the adrenaline high.

If you need time to recover after all of that, the beaches of Fiji are waiting for you not too far away (told you we hadn’t forgotten about it).
