Australia to New Zealand
Many people go on a gap year to Australia, but the only problem with this huge country is that it’s pretty isolated. One of the next nearest places to go is New Zealand, and we highly recommend this striking scenic country to all gap year explorers. New Zealand has made a name for itself around the world as one of the prettiest places to visit. It’s no wonder popular movies were filmed there, including Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. A flight from western Australia to New Zealand is around 6 hours, and you’re looking at around 8-9 from Eastern Australia. If you’re heading over to America or South America, we highly recommend going to new Zealand first, it’s likely to be the best looking country you’ll visit, and we’re confident you’ll want to go back.
