Oceania & Australasia Travel GuideOceania and Australasia is perhaps the most underrated touristic area across the Globe. The sheer beauty of the natural landscapes of Australia or New Zeeland is truly unmatched, as proven by Hollywood's obsession with Australasia's nature (pretty much any self-respecting fantasy movie will be filmed there). To shed some light on the region and perhaps to give you another pin on your traveling map, we decided to make an Oceania and Australasia travel guide.
Australia and Oceania are perceived by many travelers as the most distant and exotic parts of the globe. Probably this is the reason why, despite the cost of transportation, people decide to visit the Great Coral Reef, the national parks of New Zealand or the tropical islands of the Pacific. Australia - worlds' smallest and least populated continent - and the myriad of Pacific islands that form Oceania are home to some pretty unique ecosystems. Species like the kangaroo, the koala bear, the kiwi bird or the Tasmanian Devil are endemic for this part of the world (here is the only place where they can be observe in their natural habitat). The clear waters of the Great Coral Reef provide the ultimate scuba diving experience, whilst, New Zealand, with its unbelievable landscapes, is a paradise for outdoor lovers and those passionate with extreme sports.
Australia and Oceania are inhabited by a very diverse population, consisting of a mix of European immigrants and aborigine tribes. Although there aren't many big cities to visit (with the exception of Sydney, Melbourne, Aukland located in Australia and New Zealand), the Pacific islands represent some of the most exquisite destination in the world: Hawaii, Tonga, Samoa or Bora Bora need no further introduction.
