Australia & New Zealand


South Island
North Island



These pages were completely revised and updated in January 2021. They feature a trip taken in 2006, when we took leaves of absence from our jobs, took our son out of school, and travelled through Australia and New Zealand for two months. It was a magnificent experience which we hope to be able to do again some time. We saw dynamic cities, explored intriguing natural areas and met wonderful people. Although, this trip was taken some time ago, the photos are refreshed and the commentary updated to highlight the enduring nature of these attractions.

We drove thousands of kilometers and soon got accustomed to driving on the left side of the road. In Australia, we were warned that the greatest dangers were hitting a kangaroo or falling asleep at the wheel. In New Zealand, the worst danger was meeting an oncoming train on the one lane bridges.
