New Zealand/Fiji/Tahiti/Australia oh my

Jump to last reply

As a follow up question - the guide book I am looking at claims it tis but a hop skip and jump from New Zealand to Tahiti, Fiji and Australia and that one can get very inexpensive air tickets (I'm not finding them from this end but am maybe looking at the wrong sites.).

If it were you and (thinking optimistically) we/you had three weeks how would you divide your time? (we like to settle in a place for at least three nights at a time, not moving to a different hotel each night) I'm guessing this might be our only trip to that part of the world so would want to take the best advantage.

If we simply focus on New Zealand how would you divide the time between North and South Island?

We are btw a couple in our fifties, in decent shape, but not hugely into outdoor adventure per se. We like hiking, nature, museums of all kinds, tasting different cuisines, beaches, wineries, but not big into night life or shopping if that helps. Thank you.
