Meet the South Pacific Experts of Goway GroupsOnly

Goway’s South Pacific Group Experts have had a very busy year creating unique customized itineraries to the lands Downunder. There is so much to experience in Australia and New Zealand that planning an itinerary for a group can be daunting. That’s when it’s time to contact Goway and let our group experts lead the way.

For foodies, wine connoisseurs, sports aficionados, culture/history buffs, outdoor enthusiasts, and everything in between, the Antipodes will never disappoint. A trip focused on special interests is always enhanced when like-minded Globetrotters travel together, and Goway Groups Only has the experience and expertise to make that happen.

Our top South Pacific experts share their favourite itineraries for the year. Because our itineraries are all customized for your group and budget, these itineraries and many more are available year-round, ready to be ‘tweaked’ to suit the specific needs of your group.
