Australia & South Pacific

The Australasia region is a great destination for Ventures tours.  You can join your Ventures staff in an optional excursion out of Picton, in the heart of the Marlbourough Sounds in New Zealand’s South Island, to go and explore Kaipupu Sounds Nature Reserve, home to several endemic bird species living in the wild in a predator free natural environment.  This lovely pocket of native forest offers a one-hour hike accessible only by boat.  Following a short zodiac tour and after an interpretive hike we will take you by zodiac to a lovely section of the Marlbourough Sounds where we will experience a kayak tour in a beautiful setting, enjoying the sights and sounds of Queen Charlotte Sound.

This is just one of the many Ventures tours designed to give you an exciting, informative and fresh perspective of the natural history of Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and the South Pacific region, its hidden gems and remote islands. 

A New Way To Experience Destinations

Explore Milford Sound and the Dravuni Archipelago in Zodiacs and kayak the Maroochy River estuary. Hike at Ulva Island from Oban, the Orokonui Forest, Cape Woolomai at sunset and the Bay of Islands.
