Discover 5 epic South Island Journeys

Be surrounded by towering alps one moment and linger on golden sandy beaches the next. Travel from wild rugged coastlines, to picture-perfect vineyards. See glaciers up close, meet unique wildlife like giant whales and yellow-eyed penguins then relax in thermal hot springs. And the flight here is easy with direct flights from Eastern Australian cities to Christchurch taking just 3 hours.
