Australasia Travel Guide

Yep, we might refer to it as Down Under, but Australia's sandy beaches and New Zealand's mountain peaks are more like the heights of travel Nirvana. And with the capability for British citizens to work and live in Australia and New Zealand for up to two years, what's stopping you?

What we love in Australasia

An obvious choice, sure. But what a view. Sign up to a Champagne sunrise bundle and do the most.

Campervan on the beach

Campervan hire in Australia & New Zealand

A road trip in Oz or New Zealand is practically a rite of passage, and what better way to see them than in a funky travelling home? You'll have the freedom to go where you want to go, stop where you want to stop, spend extra days at the places you like and skip by the ones you don't. Plus, you'll save heaps on accommodation.

Stray bus passes in Australia

Stray's Freestyle Travel network allows you to keep your plans loose and travel at your own pace. Found somewhere you don't want to leave? Hop off and extend your stay, then hop back on and join the next tour coming through.

Greyhound bus passes in Australia

Greyhound's extensive coach network has over 180 stops, so you can give it a pretty good go! And, with flexible travel passes, free on-board Wi-Fi and online seat selection, getting from A to B is fuss-free. We recommend 120 days to travel Greyhound's full 11,000 km network but there are endless options for shorter trips too.
