South Pacific Vacations

South Pacific vacations can visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti or Tasmania. Escorted tours are accompanied by a knowledgeable tour guide who provides insight into every destination and oversees day-to-day travel details. Tour operators combine low hotel and air rates, passing the savings on to you.

Many itineraries include a stop in Sydney, where you might explore the Taronga Zoo and greet its resident koalas. The city's other key sights are the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Aquarium at Darling Harbour, where you'll learn about the unparalleled marine life of the region. Outside of Sydney, you might visit Ayers Rock or Alice Springs in the Australian outback. Many vacations add New Zealand into the mix with a stop in Auckland or Rotorua, a geothermal oasis located inside the rim of a volcanic crater.

Vacations that focus exclusively on the South Pacific islands are very rare. You are more likely to find Fiji and Tahiti as add-ons to travel itineraries in Australia and New Zealand.

In some cases you'll need to fly a long distance to reach the starting point of your tour, so we suggest you arrive at the departure city at least one or two days in advance. This gives you time to rest and get oriented. Most companies that operate in the South Pacific offer pre-tour hotel packages.
