Located in the southeast of the Asia-Pacific region, Oceania is home to some of the world’s most beautiful countries and islands. From blue lagoons and rainforest flora to luxury hotels and spas, there are plenty of classy destinations in this stunning area of the world. If you want a holiday that you will never forget, soak up the sun and sights of some of Oceania’s must-visit places. Here are our top three that you will not want to miss.
Although Australia is full of fantastic destinations to visit, the city of Sydney remains the country’s most alluring and classiest place to spend your holiday. It is the most populous city in Oz and all of Oceania. Sydney is beautiful, clean, and home to an almost endless supply of breath-taking beaches.
There are lots of attractions you will not want to miss. Start with the iconic Sydney Opera House, which is one of the most recognisable structures on the planet. By doing a tour, you can learn about the history and importance of the building that opened in 1973. And you can end your tour by drinking a glass of bubbly alongside the water at the outdoor Opera Bar. Other notable attractions include Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Royal Botanic Garden, and the famous Bondi Beach. In the evening, you have the option of visiting the city’s numerous bars and restaurants. Or you could visit the luxury casino The Star, which is the second-largest casino in Australia. Alternatively, if you are too tired to face the bustle of a real-life casino, you could play games like blackjack and roulette at a casino online.
Papua New Guinea
If you are looking for a more exotic place to visit, the island country of Papua New Guinea is the perfect destination. It is home to a rich tribal culture, which you can learn about at the National Museum and Art Gallery. But it is Papua New Guinea’s natural tourist attractions that make the country such a fabulous place to holiday.
At Varirata National Park, you can spot a myriad of bird species, including birds of paradise. The national park also has an incredibly beautiful view of the sea. And at the University of Technology, you can visit a reconstructed rainforest that houses a wide variety of local flora and fauna, including the Agro saltwater crocodile. After a day spent exploring the natural beauty of Papa New Guinea, you can relax in the evening at one of the country’s many luxurious hotels.
The archipelago of over 300 islands, Fiji, is famous for its beautiful rugged landscapes, coral reefs, clear lagoons, and palm-lined beaches. So, for a genuinely paradise holiday destination, choose classy Fiji.
You can sample Mamanuca and the Yasawa Islands by doing a Blue Lagoon cruise. But to get up close and personal to the natural beauty of Fiji, check out Bouma National Heritage Park on the island of Taveuni. As well as hosting an abundance of birdlife and lush flora, it contains the stunning Tavoro Waterfalls, which are maintained by the nearby villagers of Korovuo. You can even swim in the volcanic pools at the base of the falls for a moment you will never forget. And if you have an adventurous side, a visit to the holiday resort of Pacific Harbour is a must.
Known as the Adventure Capital of Fiji, the resort enables you to take part in a wide variety of adrenaline-pumping activities, such as zip-lining, jet skiing, and 4WD adventures. Pacific Harbour is also home to a fantastic selection of luxury hotels, restaurants, and cultural shows. There is even an excellent golf course and a revitalising spa. So, whether you like lounging on white-sand beaches, having adventures, or exploring natural beauty, Fiji is the ideal destination.
