Popular destinations in Oceania

There is so much to see and do in Oceania. With a diverse mix of cultures and climates, it can be difficult to narrow down where you should fly to. This all depends on what type of trip you'd like to experience. Are you aching to relax on a sunny beach in a tropical setting? Or would you rather explore the bustling cities? You don't have to stop there - why not extend your trip and experience the best of both worlds?

With Alternative Airlines, you can book multiple flights in one booking to various different cities or islands and make the most of your vacation to Oceania. Take a look below at some of the most popular and most visited countries in Oceania:


Fiji, made up of around 300 islands, is located in the Melanesia region of Oceania. It is paradise in a nutshell and is the perfect destination for travellers looking to sit back and relax on white, sandy beaches while the waves roll in from the clear, blue ocean. Fiji is well known for its shallow lagoons that are ideal for snorkelling, as well as vibrant coral reefs that any scuba-diving enthusiast would love to see. The ideal time to visit Fiji is between May and September - the skies are clear and average temperatures are around 84°F (29°C).


Australia is the biggest country and continent in Oceania. In Australia, you can experience tropical beaches and urban cities without having to travel too far. The unique city of Sydney is home to many famous landmarks including the Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach and Harbour Bridge. The pristine beaches of Queensland will most certainly catch the eye of any tourist in Australia - it has over 200 national parks and is also close to The Great Barrier Reef which is the world's largest coral reef system. Spring and autumn are the best times to fly to Australia - the weather is comfortable enough to walk around without feeling too hot or too cold.


If you're not one for crowded city life, Guam is the destination for you. Tucked away in the Micronesia region of Oceania, Guam is full of history and culture, a diverse mix of cuisines and many adventurous marine activities as well as white, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. The best time to visit Guam is in the dry season which is from January to May, so if you're looking to avoid the typically cold weather elsewhere in the world, you can find warmth in Guam in winter.

New Zealand

New Zealand is the largest country in the Polynesian region of Oceania. It's mostly famous for its manuka honey, being the setting for the popular movie franchise 'Lord of the Rings', sheep and rugby, among others. Any tourist visiting New Zealand should experience its national parks that are oozing with natural beauty, but if you'd rather spend your time away by shopping, we recommend visiting Auckland or Christchurch. New Zealand's summer months are between December and March when you can expect long, bright sunny days.
