Whether you’re pining for crystal clear azure waters, snowy peaks or sun-drenched valleys, the dream of travelling overseas could soon be a reality. According to proposed timetables from the Tourism Restart Taskforce, we could all be bubbling across the Tasman to New Zealand from as early as next month!
Famed for its spectacular scenery, world-class wine and with some incredible new boutique luxury accommodations, we’ve wrapped up our ideal itinerary for a Trans-Tasman escape to New Zealand’s beautiful South Island.
While we still need the final sign off from the Australian and NZ governments, savvy travellers would be wise to act quickly, start planning and secure some of the incredible packages and great value experiences on offer from New Zealand tourism businesses eager to welcome back visitors.
To help send you on your way, we are offering a $50 travel voucher on all New Zealand itineraries booked until the end of 2020. Our passionate team of travel advisors can create personalised and customised holidays with access to the best prices, VIP benefits, amenities and extras only available via our exclusive relationships and affiliations.
