Our Australia specialist recommends..
"I’d recommend our New Zealand’s Natural History tour for a superb overview of the country’s wildlife – we visit the North, South and Stewart Islands going in search of its rich variety of birds, flowers and cetaceans. If you’re on a budget try our bargain bird trip to Australia focusing on the rich birdlife of Cairns and Daintree National Park in Queensland." - Georgie Head
What can I see?
Australasia may be isolated, but it is also sophisticated. This isolation has not only endowed a fascinating natural heritage but also allowed high degrees of endemism to develop, and it is the continent’s unique flora and fauna which our tours focus on. Here are some of the Naturetrek wildlife tours in Australasia that you can choose from:

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Australasia HOLIDAYS
The tour leaders gave us so much information about New Zealand as we travelled. They were so knowledgeable about the animals and plants, it was fantastic.
Carol is one of the best leaders we have had. Most energetic and full of bird knowledge. I especially loved the places we stopped - the complete opposite of the 'costa del anywhere' rooms you get in the big hotels.
Mark was excellent in all ways. His knowledge of the birds and flora was superb and he ensured we saw as much as possible. His organisation of lunches, especially picnic lunches was also superb.
