Discover the very best of the South Pacific on a three-week vacation to Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. Experiential and enchanting are the landscapes, and you will connect with local cultures and explore magnificent landscapes, such as Uluru, New Zealand’s fjords, and remote Fijian islands. Including Aboriginal art, a private island sanctuary, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and the great outdoors, this is the ultimate vacation package that spans three incredible countries.
Auckland – Settling in to the South Pacific
After landing at New Zealand’s largest airport, you will be picked up by a local guide and transferred into the charming city of Auckland. Here, city neighborhoods are dominated by independent businesses, but the streets do not feel hip or trendy. It is more of a local atmosphere epitomized by friendly smiles and welcoming waves. Your hotel will be located on the harbor, and the harbor-front promenade will be an excellent place to begin walking off your jet lag. Nothing will be planned for today, so you can have all the time you need to rest.

Icons bask in the South Pacific, and the Great Barrier Reef entices all who visit Australia with its vibrant colors and tropical allure. Fjordland is a landscape of untamed glaciers and remarkable waterways. In this part of the world, you can explore epic deserts and transverse deserted beaches, rolling vineyards, indigenous forests, and ancient volcanos. Every destination is a new landscape and experience from famous cities like Sydney to an island sanctuary in the Fijian archipelago.
This three-week vacation package combines the highlights of all Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. You will spend the first six days in New Zealand, where you can ease into the vacation in Auckland, enjoy outdoor and Maori experiences in Rotorua, and bask in the beauty of Queenstown on the South Island. There will be glowworm caves, exploding geysers, a helicopter landing on a glacier, and Milford Sound. After flying to Melbourne, you will spend eight nights down under, combining four distinctive destinations. Melbourne is art and culture, and Uluru will provide your vibrant desert experience. Port Douglas is a tropical getaway in addition to being a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Finally, Sydney will be all about the iconic sites and views.
These destinations are easily connected to domestic flights, and their variety is astonishing. You will blend Aboriginal connections, wine tasting, and guided stargazing with close-up encounters with Australia’s wildlife. After two weeks on the move, you will fly to Fiji for five wonderfully laid-back days on tropical islands. Taveuni Island still offers plenty of things to do, while Laucala is a private sanctuary, where there is nothing but your leisure and the South Pacific.
