Wildlife holidays in Australasia
Australia and New Zealand lead the world with their unbeatable cocktail of first class accommodation, fine wines and delicious food, magnificent scenery, uncrowded beaches, slick infrastructure and friendly hospitality. Australasia offers extraordinary wildlife in safe, peaceful surroundings, from parrots, pademelons and possums to whales and Koalas.
Our Australia specialist recommends..
"I’d recommend our New Zealand’s Natural History tour for a superb overview of the country’s wildlife – we visit the North, South and Stewart Islands going in search of its rich variety of birds, flowers and cetaceans. If you’re on a budget try our bargain bird trip to Australia focusing on the rich birdlife of Cairns and Daintree National Park in Queensland." - Georgie Head
What can I see?
Australasia may be isolated, but it is also sophisticated. This isolation has not only endowed a fascinating natural heritage but also allowed high degrees of endemism to develop, and it is the continent’s unique flora and fauna which our tours focus on. Here are some of the Naturetrek wildlife tours in Australasia that you can choose from:

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Australasia HOLIDAYS
The itinerary was very good and the guides excellent. Their knowledge and enthusiasm made the trip.
A fantastic holiday, well up to my expectations.
I loved this holiday - my first with Naturetrek. The itinerary was ideal for me. I was so attracted by it on your website last November that I booked it immediately. I liked the concept of covering areas included by other operators, while visiting less known scenic, wildlife areas. I particularly wanted to visit Stewart Island, and Tiritiri Matangi was a bonus. The boat trips and the night and early morning walks were highlights. The three leaders were exceptionally knowledgeable, energetic, enthusiastic and good communicators, and made the holiday a wonderful learning experience; ideal for a first visit to New Zealand. All of my previous group holidays have been walking holidays, but this experience has inspired me to convert, at least partially, to wildlife holidays. Many thanks for a memorable holiday.
