Known to many as the ‘Land Down Under’, Australia's most significant attraction is its natural beauty. At nearly the same size as continental USA you’ll have plenty of fun planning your perfect itinerary. Visit the Great Barrier Reef, or the Barrossa Valley, Australia’s wine capital featuring more than 80 vineyards, less than two hours' drive from Adelaide, discover the wildlife of Kangaroo Island and explore the wonders of the World Heritage rain forest surrounding Cairns. And Air New Zealand has daily flights to Australia via Auckland, New Zealand to get you there.
