Where on earth can you find some of the most spectacular landscapes? In Australia and New Zealand, naturally.
Both countries are blessed with natural landmarks and geological features that are world-renowned, including Australia's Great Barrier Reef which is visible from space and with an ecosystem all of its own. Ayers Rock, or Uluru, is a huge monolithic slab of sandstone which, depending on the time of day, switches through a spectrum of colors from terracotta to anthracite. If Ayers Rock is Australia's geological must-see, then Milford Sound must New Zealand's finest natural spectacle. The fjord land is possessed of stunning coastal scenery, dazzling peaks and dark, inky-blue waters. Experience the raw potency of nature and its intrinsic beauty at Wai-O-Tapu – here the landscape bursts with color as a result of the explosive geysers, searing mud pools and volcanic zones that permeate the area.
