The regions that come within Australasia are Australia, New Zealand and several small islands in the south of the Pacific. Some of the islands that come under the Australasian territory are Cook Island, Fiji, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Tahiti, Vanuatu and a few others.
What are the wow factors in Australasia? Many would think especially Australia in particular as a home away from home, i.e. the language, food and music will definitely remind visitors and travellers of their home here, yet the Great Barrier Reef, Outback, tropical North and the stunning Blue Mountains provide more than enough of the exotic.
In fact, Australasia has a wide variety of culture and wildlife to keep travellers and tourists alike on their toes all year round! Not only that, Australasia has long been the destination of choice for those who wish to work abroad. On top of that, its developed infrastructure mean travelling around is of no hassle and its natural beauty can rival any of its more exotic neighbours.
One thing good about Australasia is its proximity to Asia. Just a short hop and you’re in the heart of Asia to visit spiritual temples and interesting places, experience mind boggling diverse landscapes and delicious food. This also means that tourists and travellers can easily find deals that provide multiple flights within a short period of time.
Although you won’t live as cheaply as in Asia or Africa but living costs in Australasia are still considered cheap.
