Australia & New Zealand Tours

Home Icon Australia and New Zealand combination tours with itineraries ranging from 30 to 54 days long.

If immersing yourself in the most incredible natural beauty on earth, while relaxing in comfortable accommodation sounds like your idea of a dream holiday, then our tours to Australia and New Zealand are perfect for you.

Australia is a whole new world, where ancient Aboriginal cultures contrast with cosmopolitan cities such as Melbourne to create a deliciously diverse experience. The unique and unrivalled landscapes of the outback, Alice Springs and Uluru – combined with the tropical treats of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef – are just some of the highlights you can expect on a tour of Australia. Now picture yourself standing below magnificent mountain peaks and ancient volcanoes, unable to even imagine the top; admiring the vast fjords stretching as far as the eye can see; being enveloped in the amazing colours and sounds of a rainforest; and unwinding on beaches so pristine, they’re almost too good to be true. Well, it’s what you can look forward to on one of our escorted tours to New Zealand.

Fly from the airport you want

We believe that the best way to start your holiday is having the option to fly from the airport that’s most convenient for you. With this is mind, Distant Journeys allows you to choose to fly from Heathrow, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle or Glasgow for your international flights. Even better, whichever airport you choose, it’s included in the price of all our holidays to Australia and New Zealand.

Choose your included stopover

To break up your travel on the way out, you can choose to enjoy a two night stopover in either Dubai, Bangkok or Singapore – dependent on your choice of tour. You decide and we’ll take care of it. And again, whichever you choose, it’s included in the price.

Free days to do as you please

To help tailor your holiday to your interests, we offer Freedom Days for you to spend as you please. The more adventurous might enjoy activities like a jet boat ride through Shotover Canyon, while for others, a behind the scenes tour of Sydney Opera House is more their style.

Extend your holiday

Why not make the most of your holiday and extend your Australia and New Zealand tour to spend time with friends and family? We will be happy to make flight arrangements for you as part of the service.
