From snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef to staying in paradise in Bora Bora, we give you our top pick of Australasian experiences for 2016, with help from our friends at Austravel.
If you’ve got travel down under on your new year’s resolutions list (or your bucket list), then 2016 might just be the year you get to explore the very best that Australia and New Zealand have to offer.
Visit a Maori village and swim with dolphins in New Zealand
Head to Tamaki Village in Rotorua, North Island, and discover the incredible Haka dance. Explore the carved Maori houses and join the locals for a traditional Hangi buffet – a kind of barbecue where food is cooked using heated rocks buried in a fire pit.
Snorkel or dive at the Great Barrier Reef
Travellers will no doubt be eager to see the Great Barrier Reef in the wake of Sir David Attenborough’s latest documentary series. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef is the most extensive reef system on the globe. Cairns and Port Douglas both make for great leaping off points to explore the reef, with plenty of things to do on shore and at sea.
Stay in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora
Bora Bora is an untainted island paradise. You can make your stay even more beautiful, however, by staying in a luxury overwater bungalow. At Mount Otemanu, you can look out across the ocean and enjoy the white sand beaches.
Scale the Harbour Bridge in Sydney
Sydney, Australia’s most iconic city, is a gay mecca. As well as having a great scene and one of the world’s best prides, however, it also has some gorgeous sights. Why not scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and then take a tour of the Opera House? If you really feel adventurous, you can climb the Blue Mountains too.
