Long-haul holidays

Visit the Silver Travel Advisor website


Travelling to the other side of the world is exciting, with so many new experiences to enjoy and places to visit. A really special holiday!

Have you always dreamed of visiting Australia and New Zealand? Countries that capture the imagination for their location right around the world, their unique flora and fauna as well as the outdoor lifestyle, exciting, modern cities and magnificent scenery. 

Once you’ve arrived, after perhaps an exciting stopover in Bangkok or Los Angeles on the way, the choices of discovery and exploration are unrivalled.

In Australia, visit the Outback or perhaps travel to the geysers on New Zealand’s South Island, just for starters!

New Zealand Sky

This is the land of the long white cloud, more sheep than people and a wonderful other worldly quality.

With Auckland and Wellington as interesting cities, The Bay of Islands and its extensive beach and the beauty of the Coromandel Peninsula show off the coast line to perfection.

Hot geysers and mud pools remind the traveller that New Zealand has remarkable geography: mountains, waterfalls and glaciers to mention a few.

The pace of life is quiet, however the dramatic natural features take centre stage along with the wildlife.  Perhaps you will spot a nocturnal Kiwi, go whale and dolphin watching or spot penguins on the South Island.

There are many ways to travel around New Zealand, perhaps on a guided tour or a self-drive trip so you can travel at your own speed.  These remarkable islands are unpredictable and unexpectedly startling, you’ll be mesmerised by their beauty.
