Overview

Get ready to experience some of the world's most captivating natural wonders for yourself on this incredible journey through the Southern Hemisphere! This program exclusively for older teen travelers will leave you with an appreciation for these two Pacific cultures.

Discover the best of both Australia and ​New Zealand’s ​stunning landscapes and bustling urban centers on TFT’s Older Teens adventure in the Land Down Under. If you’re looking for an authentic, off-the-beaten-path experience, you’re sure to find it on this teen tour as you journey with TFT through alpine lakes, dramatic fjords, lush rainforests, stunning coral reefs, and the rugged Australian Outback.

Your journey starts in Australia, where you’re sure to cuddle with koalas, pet kangaroos, explore Sydney, discover the Great Barrier Reef, and of course, immerse yourself in the Australian culture and relaxed lifestyle.

Then it’s off to New Zealand’s South Island, where the stunning landscapes steal the show. Snowcapped alps, glacial valleys and star-filled skies all merge together for an adventure tour that is entirely unique from its neighbor, the North Island. Explore alpine lakes, hike to hidden glaciers, stargaze in a hot spring, explore a glow worm dell and cruise through dramatic fjords

There is no limit to the adventures you will have when you journey with us to Australia and New Zealand and discover that these countries have so much more to offer than what you will find in the guide books!

Immersion into Australian and New Zealand Culture

My trip to Australia and New Zealand with Travel for Teens has changed my perspective on traveling, I was not just a tourist when I visited these foreign countries but became extremely immersed in their culture, through experiences such as watching a ritualistic haka in New Zealand to camping in the Australian outback with locals. I felt at home in these countries and not out of place, which sometimes can happen when traveling. We stayed in hostels, not big chain hotels and got to meet so many locals that we could learn a lot from, such as where the best traditional places to eat were and where we should shop or visit if we had any free time (which luckily was not often because we always had some fun activity planned). Overall, I honestly had the time of my life on this trip and it really opened my eyes to truly experiencing different cultures, after I even told my Mom that this trip has showed me that I want-NEED to continue traveling to different parts of the world for the rest of my life.
