Live it up in the Land Down Under.
Do you know what they call a bucket hat Down Under? A giggle hat. Know what they call a bucket list? Still a bucket list. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be cackling your way from the red dirt roads of the Australian Outback to the hot bubbling mud pools of New Zealand. In this far out, faraway land, prepare to get up close to the rugged terrain, the breezy beaches, the robust cities, and the happy-go-lucky locals you’ve long dreamed of. It’s time to take a plunge at the Great Barrier Reef, hit the high notes in sunny Sydney, and kick it Aussie-style with the kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and wombats. Camels at sunrise and glowworms in dark caves lead the way to unforgettable moments you simply can’t experience in any other corner of the globe. Where else in the world can you swim above the angelfish, cook dinner below ground, say hi to a Tasmanian devil and sip heavenly wines? Only in the South Pacific and only with Globus. From east to west and desert to dunes, we go beyond the guidebooks for the ultimate bucket-list, giggle-hat adventure. Add Fiji to your once-in-a-lifetime vacation and you’ll be laughing louder than the kookaburras.
Buckets of Fun
When you’re hungry for adventure, simply feast your eyes on the cornucopia of colorful views and hues of Australia and New Zealand! From the Red Center of the Aussie Outback to the deep blues of the Great Barrier Reef, you won’t believe your eyes. Go green in the lush landscapes of New Zealand and see a kaleidoscope of color above Sydney with a sparkling New Year’s firework show. Hop over to Kangaroo Island, step onto the legendary Ghan Train, or spot some wild locals at Kakadu National Park. From the blue mist of Milford Sound to the orange sunsets painting Uluru (Ayers Rock) and turquoise seascapes along the golden sands of Fiji will fill your mind’s eye for years to come.
Never smile at a crocodile, but do get close up and personal with a koala and kangaroo, along with other outstanding wildlife in Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. Have your picture taken with a cuddly marsupial; swim with the gentle giants of Ningaloo Reef; and try to believe your eyes in the company of some of the strangest creatures that call the South Pacific home.
G’day & Welcome!
Meet the locals of the South Pacific.
From the sun-washed sands of Fiji to the desert winds of Australia’s Outback, your heart will be warmed as well by the welcoming people who call Australia and New Zealand home. Feel the glow of the Red Center with sunrise and unset colors of Uluru (Ayers Rock), and get a warm welcome from the Anangu Aboriginal people. Meet Chris “Brogla” Barns (aka “Kangaroo Dundee“), who holds kangaroo conservation close to his heart at the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs. You can hold a joey (baby kangaroo) close to your own heart with a visit to the wildlife reserve or meet some lifesavers on Bondi Beach. Be a welcomed guest of local Máori (indigenous Polynesian people) in New Zealand for a traditional Hangi dinner (roasted meats and vegetables cooked underground with hot stones), or sit down for lunch at a family farm. You’re also invited to dinner at a local family’s home in Rotorua. Cruise up the stunning Sigatoka River to an authentic Fijian village and experience a day in the life of the real “Kaiviti” (Fijian). Your new friends in Fiji are sure to suggest the best nearby beach or favorite local dish. You’ll never meet a stranger in the South Pacific!
