We’re wrapping up our 2 weeks in a continent series, and this week, we’re talking all about how to spend 2 weeks in Australia and Oceania!

If you’re just tuning in to our podcast, we have a new series up all about how to spend 2 weeks on a particular continent. Why 2 weeks? Well, that is often the amount of time people are able to get away!

In this episode, we’re diving into Australia and Oceania and creating 2 separate itineraries on how we feel is the best way to explore this continent! From exploring the Great Barrier Reef to hiking in New Zealand, there is so much to do!

Let us know your favorite itinerary or how you’d change it in the comments below or you can reach us on Twitter @wwhoneymoon, Instagram @worldwidehoneymoon, or email [email protected]
