Oceania, Australia & New Zealand

It's an island. No, it's a country. No, a continent. Hold on—you're all correct. Australia, enigma that it is, fits nicely into all three categories, but that's where the neat definition ends. This unimaginably old piece of rock is also a relative newcomer to international travelers, even those arrived by sailing ship from Europe’s shores. Today Australia has plenty for travelers of any taste. Great expanses of untouched Outback. Edgy chefs and innovative vintners. Artsy cities. And an Aboriginal culture that’s been here since time began.

Neighboring New Zealand fits nicely onto twin chunks of terra firma (conveniently named North Island and South Island). Here, too, the cities hold cultural treasures and the scenery beyond is wide open and inviting. Think mountains, craggy coastlines, sparkling fjords, grazing sheep nearly everywhere, and a swath of wine estates that satisfy your thirst as you go. If fishing is your thing, remember to figure that into your plans.
