Find yourself on the other side of the world in Australia, where the seasons are reversed and the wonders of nature will always surprise you. Australia is a vast country where you’ll encounter completely different flora and fauna in the mountains, forests, beaches, reefs, and deserts. There are also vibrant cities to explore and the urban neighborhoods, museums, restaurants, botanical gardens (and more!) contribute to Australia’s own special culture.
New Zealand is often the ultimate destination for outdoor adventure, because its geography is so very green, lush, and awe-inspiring. If you’ve seen the Lord of the Rings fi lms, you’ve gotten a peek at New Zealand’s mountains, forests, coastlines, fjords, and lakes. New Zealand’s north and south islands also invite you to explore its cities, vineyards, hiking paths, and the indigenous Maori culture, which is prevalent in the country’s history and heritage.
