Elegant Journeys

South Pacific

Does your perfect holiday feature endless white sand beaches, gentle breezes wafting through palm trees, and romantic sunset strolls? Are you the adventure-seeker yearning to climb snow-capped mountains, bungee jump, and stalk a ten-pound trout in gin clear water before sitting down to a meal of green lip mussels? Eager to snorkel or dive in turquoise waters? Are you a foodie interested in organic farms, New World wines, and fine dining? If your answer is 'yes' to any or all of the above, there is an entire region to explore “Down Under,” in the Australasian countries of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, French Polynesia, and Papua New Guinea. 


If an Aussie tells you something is "fair dinkum," it means it's the genuine article. Here at Frontiers, we think Australia is a pretty "fair dinkum" place to visit. This vast land is a country as large as the United States, and a continent in its own right, full of contrasts. From the craggy peaks of the Blue Mountains to the coral treasure land of the Great Barrier Reef, and the stylish modern cities to the endless outback stations, and the alpine hiking trails of Tasmania to the impressive wildlife on Kangaroo Island—there is something for everyone. In a country this size, you must choose what you wish to experience and when. But know that genuine hospitality, world-class accommodations, and an endless array of activities await you. Cuddle a kangaroo, sip a fine Barossa wine, take in a game of rugby, shuck oysters in Tasmania, or lay beneath the stars of the Outback—regardless of where you decide to explore, Australia is magnificently diverse and should be on your bucket list!

New Zealand

Blessed with stunning alpine vistas, golden beaches, and pristine bays, rocky seas cliffs, verdant meadows, and hillsides dotted with grazing sheep, New Zealand is a part of the world we love for its scenery as much as for its vibrant, rich culture, melding a rich Maori heritage with modern European and Polynesian influences. Often called “Nature’s Playground,” here you can heli-hike, kayak, surf, ride horses, and ski amid this breathtaking landscape. For those seeking a bit more adrenalin, try some of the adventures that the Kiwis invented—bungee jump off a bridge, rocket through narrow caverns on a jet boat, or paddle through white water rapids. If you prefer a gentler approach to exploration, New Zealand will not disappoint with wonderful walks, spectacular lodges, world-class Pacific Rim cuisine, and stunning gardens all complemented by their incredible Sauvignon Blanc. A holiday here promises the nicest Kiwi people, cosmopolitan cities, and fascinating ancient culture, making it a place to discover something whether you're a first-timer or making your tenth visit.


A perfect place to set the clocks to 'island time,' Fiji is an escape from the stresses of everyday life. First-class service, white sand beaches, coral reefs, and volcanic peaks make it one of the world's favorite places to dive, snorkel, and unwind, and the marine conservation and amazing diving opportunities bring those with a love for the aquatic to its shores. The friendliness of the Fijian people is well known, expressed with a “bula” which means welcome, and an invitation to join them for a bowl of tongue-numbing kava.

French Polynesia

Often associated with romance and honeymoons, French Polynesia comes close to fulfilling the ideal island paradise. The clear lagoons are amazing shades of blue or green, and lushly forested mountains rise dramatically above the sea. The delights of the islands of Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea extend past lounging on pristine beaches or cozying up in an over-water bungalow. The beauty of the lost paradise of these three islands can not only be found in the effervescent coral reefs and vibrant jungles, but also in the discovery and relaxation you'll find while there.

Papua New Guinea

One of the world's last remaining frontiers, Papua New Guinea has a diversity of culture and people completely uncharted and untouched until the 1930s. The unspoiled and rugged nature of the island creates its unique sense of place—isolated beaches, volcanic mountains, dense jungles, and primal rivers make up this home to indigenous people with an incredible 700 separate languages still spoken. Annual dance and costume competitions called “sing sings” are a spectacle to behold. Life may be ever-changing, but a trip to Papua New Guinea offers an intriguing step back in time.
