Australia and New Zealand From $1799 (Web)

Experience two great adventures for one amazing price with the launch of two-week packages to Australia and New Zealand from $1799.
The 12-night Australia and New Zealand Sampler package includes three nights each in Sydney and Melbourne or Brisbane and six nights exploring New Zealand’s North Island with car rental and an accommodation pass, plus international and domestic air, from $1799.

Other great value deals include:
- 12-night Reef, City and Self Drive vacation from $1999,
incorporating the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney, and self-drive
around New Zealand’s North Island from Auckland
- 12-night Best of Australia and New Zealand package from $1999,
featuring the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney and the New Zealand
cities of Auckland and Queenstown.

The Australian Tourist Commission’s Vice President for the Americas, Mr Michael Londregan, said the packages were a fantastic introduction to the two countries.

“Australia and New Zealand are distinct but complementary destinations. We’ve designed the packages to showcase both their remarkable natural contrasts and their shared antipodean lifestyle, making for exciting and varied vacation experiences.

“Australia’s vibrant cities and the ecological wonders of the tropical north’s Great Barrier Reef and pristine wetlands and rainforests combine with New Zealand's panorama of sleeping volcanoes, alpine lakes, glaciers, lush forested national parks and modern cities to produce an adventure for everyone.”

Tourism New Zealand’s regional Director for USA and Canada, Mr Gregg Anderson, said that the great value packages come at a time when travellers are demanding to see more of the hot destinations they are seeing in the pages of magazines and on film.

“Interest has been building for New Zealand and Australia as our profiles in popular culture have come into the spotlight. Events such as The America’s Cup in 2000 and 2003, the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the Millennium and now “The Lord of the Rings” and the Aussie Posse taking on Hollywood has whetted travelers appetites to see the people and places behind these scene stealing global events.”
