Tailor Made Holidays to Australasia

Australia has gone through a renaissance in recent years, with luxury lodges and wilderness camps opening in every state and territory, along with charming boutique city retreats. Even the remotest corners and islands enjoy easy access and out  outstanding food and wine.  You could spend a lifetime exploring this vast continent, and indeed many catch the ‘Aussie bug’ and return year upon year.  However with careful planning the iconic Australian highlights can be woven into a two or three week holiday and we can help you fully tailor-make your itinerary, perhaps incorporating an island on the Great Barrier Reef, The Red Centre, a wine region such as Barossa or Margaret River, the urban beach life of Sydney and Perth, the remote, dusty outback and bays of South Australia or the temperate rainforest and wildlife of Tasmania

Despite its relative proximity to Australia, New Zealand promises an entirely different holiday experience – but no less enthralling and just as easy to explore.  Discovering the North and South Islands by motorhome remains a top Turquoise Holidays favourite, and quite possibly, in our opinion, one of those bucket list holidays that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime, with a South Pacific add-on an appealing advantage.  Our award-winning beach houses of Australia and New Zealand programme is still unbeaten when it comes to experiencing the Antipodean lifestyle that holds such allure.
