New Zealand and Australia, Oceania Adventure
The continent of Oceania consists of Australia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand, as well as the coral and volcanic islands of Micronesia, Polynesia and Melanesia, in the Pacific Ocean.
New Zealand is a special country, unique in the world. Many places can call themselves so, but in the case of New Zealand, and due to its geographic isolation, this country has lots of features that are really unique on the face of the earth. Thus, New Zealand has a flora and fauna that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Perhaps the best known of these animals is the Kiwi, a flightless bird. Other endemic species in New Zealand have disappeared altogether.
Another key feature of New Zealand is its nature. To get lost in its islands, its marine wealth, and peek into unique views of endless forests and mountain ranges. Perhaps Taupo volcanic zone is one of the most impressive places in the country. Cities are another important point, the most important cities are Wellington (the capital) and Auckland (the largest city). As for culture, we must not forget that it is in New Zealand where the Maori culture has settled. Their traditions, games, rituals and lifestyle are more than an attraction when visiting the country, for many it continues to be a way of life.
The neighbouring country of Australia is a whole world in its own. By looking only from a geographical point of view, Australia has the Great Barrier Reef, which is the largest coral reef in the world, that possesses a great wealth of marine life. At the same time, the country has great mountain ranges, such as the Great Dividing Range, where Mount Kosciuszko is located, while in Northern Australia the world largest monolith (Mount Uluru). Australia is the #1 most inhabited country with the least amount of fertile soil, resulting in large desert areas.
Despite that, the natural spectacle the country offers is amazing. The flora and fauna of the country are very different, depending on the place where you are located. Long distances see flourishing large cities, such as Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. An unmissable experience is visiting the country’s incredible beaches and trying your luck at the many water sports available, as long as you don’t have any problem in sharing the water with occasional sharks. We can also soak up the culture and quality of life in Australian cities.
Perhaps, the easiest way to meet these two havens is to travel there, but due to the extent of the area and things to see, a good option is to make this trip while carrying out other tasks. One may be to study English, thus taking advantage of time; there are various schools and ESL course offerings. You can also work on a farm or apply for other live-in jobs that would allow you to save some money whilst getting to know Australia and New Zealand, making it a unique and unforgettable journey.
