Description

Travel to the South Pacific, a region rich in cultural history, biodiversity, and natural beauty. Explore stunning landscapes from Fiji's tropical beaches to snow-capped peaks in New Zealand’s Southern Alps to the red desert landscape of the Australian Outback.

Start in Fiji with an introduction to Fijian culture: participate in a kava ceremony, visit a school at a nearby village, explore sand dunes and beaches, and kayak, surf, and snorkel in the South Pacific.

In New Zealand, stay with a homestay family in a small farming community and learn to shear a sheep, explore the landscape where the movie Narnia was filmed, and visit a Blue Penguin colony before heading to the ski the slopes in Wanaka.

Sail the spectactular Whitsunday Islands, then explore the cosmopolitan city of Sydney, visiting the famous Taronga Zoo and Opera house.

Finally, spot kangaroos in the Australian Outback as you camp in "swags" under the starlit sky of the Southern Hemisphere and trek to the largest monolith on earth, Uluru.
