At the heart of Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji is wilderness and outback - everything from vast desert to mountain passes to lush unspoiled rainforest. Understanding the diversity of each unique landscape and what it offers is one of the first steps in planning your vacation with AusDownUnder!
Outside of the bustling cities, and what locals call "the bush" is the vast remote interior of Australia, The Outback. 2.5 million square miles of dry empty space ready to explore with a four-wheel-drive and if planned correctly, your exploration will be quite the experience; even travelers who are not so keen on getting their feet dirty will love the Aussie Outback. Visit the amazing Northern Territory, Camp at Kata Tjuta National Park and take an adventure tour as you hike through abandoned canyons to the rim of Kings Canyon with an Aboriginal elder or choose a camel ride at sunrise to Uluru. Visit historic Aboriginal locations with ancient rock art, surrounded by rugged gorges and glistening waterways.
New Zealand’s tiny Stewart Island is an incredible place to get up close and personal with the wildlife of the South Pacific. Here, you can frolic through the native forest or watch Yellow-eyed penguins from the shores of private golden beaches. Island-wise, Fiji is filled to the brim with nature’s underwater wonders - dive in one of the world’s best diving spots, Beqa Lagoon, and immerse yourself in the vibrant sea life. Wherever you go, our AusDownUnder travel experts will be more than happy to help you discover the significance the wilderness holds in these three countries.
