Home to the Great Barrier Reef, rainforests, diverse wildlife and the iconic outback, ecotourism in Australia is in abundance through protected ecosystems and marine reserves around the country. Its neighbouring country New Zealand is just as wild and diverse. Ecotourism in New Zealand is found in the high volcanic mountain regions, freshwater ecosystems, glaciated mountains, seaside escapes and temperate rainforests. This country is wild, pure, and awe-inspiring in its own right. The South Pacific, in general, is a wide and vast corner of the world that is largely unexplored yet deserves attention. Places like Palau are where you’ll find one of the largest marine sanctuaries in the world (double the size of Mexico!), and pioneering marine conservation efforts. Some of the most diverse ocean life on the planet is found in this corner of the world, and protection is crucial to its survival.
