Whether your choice is in the skill of fly fishing some of the world’s best rivers and lakes, in the adrenalin excitement of hooking a massive black marlin in open waters, or simply dangling a line out over a jetty and hoping for a bite, there are exceptional experiences awaiting the enthusiastic angler. What’s more, your hotel or resort will assist you when you desire the services of professional fishing guides, to charter vessels or organise transport to get you to where the fish are biting!
If skiing the snow gum forests and rocky peaks of Victoria’s high country, the snow covered volcanic slopes of Mt Ruapahu or the powder covered slopes of New Zealand’s south island is your thing, either way a fun skiing or snowboarding adventure awaits. Australia and New Zealand both offer significant ski resorts with international standard facilities and unique terrains. There’s heli-skiing to remote mountains, cross-country skiing off piste through gnarled eucalypts or ‘hot-dogging’ down steep slopes.
Off land and into the sea where Australasia and the Pacific offer some of the world’s best diving. Whether novice or experienced, exploring the region’s many great coral reefs full of multicoloured fish is an unforgettable experience. And there are exceptional opportunities to get up close and personal with large pelagic species – fish, sharks and rays – and even swim with dolphins. Many resorts have PADI instructors and offer certification courses.
Maybe it’s a long overdue family holiday or the perfect getaway with a group of friends that is more your ideal travel experience. You can find luxury multi-room villas or cottage accommodation in sublime resort locations or your own exclusive wilderness or island hideaways. With each, you will relish the time spent with family and friends and truly experience travel with a purpose!
