Oceania is a vast, arbitrarily defined expanse of the world where the Pacific Ocean – rather than land borders – connects the nations. It is home to glistening white beaches, coconut palms swaying in the breeze, beautiful coral reefs, and rugged volcanic islands rising out of the blue ocean. Its diverse nations have both some of the world’s most cosmopolitan and internationalised cities such as Melbourne, and some of its most remote and culturally isolated villages.
Australia can be proud of its airy cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth…), its vineyards and its Pacific Coast, fringed by its magnificent Great Barrier Reef.
This country has the bush at its heart, symbolised by the legendary Ayers Rock.
New Zealand, which is smaller, has many surprises on offer with unspoiled landscapes (Southern Alps, fjords, volcanoes) and an Anglo-Saxon culture with a Maori cultural heritage.
The Pacific Islands are a paradise for relaxation. A tropical climate and lush vegetation against a backdrop of turquoise blue lagoons make Fiji and Tahiti (French Polynesia) the perfect location for a relaxing, sunny holiday.
