Need help deciding between NZ or Australia

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have a last minute opportunity to travel to either Australia or New Zealand the end of April. We have not traveled to either country. Our main interest to Australia is scuba diving the GBR. After that we are not sure what else we would want to do in Australia. Our main interest in New Zealand is going to the south island and doing as many outdoor actives as we can. We only have 10 days for our trip. We are in our late thirties and we are very active travelers.

We have heard that the diving in the GBR is not the best in the world but it is on our bucket list.

We also do not know when we will be able to visit either country again.

Any suggestions on which country would be best to visit during April, with only 10 days to explore, and we want to be as adventurous as we can be.
