Specially designed for local travellers, these smaller group new Globus and Cosmos itineraries give Aussies and Kiwi’s the opportunity to explore more, in comfort and style, closer to home.
Globus and Cosmos, part of the Globus family of brands (GFOB), have launched an exciting new collection of Australian and New Zealand tours created specifically for local travellers and with a maximum of 24 travellers per trip.
The itineraries showcase the very best the countries have to offer, from the famous sites to lesser-known regions, giving Aussies the opportunity to explore their own backyard.

Available to book now with the first departures scheduled for February 2021, the tours include nine itineraries in Australia and four in New Zealand, with more to be announced soon.
The trips will give Aussies access to a range of incredible experiences, from digging your very own spa pool on Hot Water Beach in New Zealand and sleeping under the stars in a luxury eco tent on Rottnest Island in Western Australia, to sampling premium rums at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery in Queensland and meeting a local farmer on a working sheep farm in Tasmania.
For travellers who like to build adventure into their holiday, there are over 40 active inclusions available as well, including kayaking on Lake Taupo in New Zealand, swimming in a natural thermal hot spring in the Kimberley, and taking a guided heritage walk in Mount Gambier, South Australia.
“We’re delighted to launch a new collection of Australian and New Zealand tours and bring more than 92 years of experience closer to home,” said Gai Tyrrell, managing director Australasia of Globus family of brands.
“We asked Aussies what they would love to see from an escorted tour closer to home and worked closely with local travel operators and tourism boards across both countries to curate itineraries we knew they’d love.
“With help from our passionate Tour Directors, guests on these trips will get a taste for the best local produce, uncover Australia and New Zealand’s natural wonders, visit the finest wineries and breweries and have meaningful interactions with local suppliers at a time when they need our support the most.

And importantly, guests can relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery and enjoy a second glass of wine at lunch – without worry!” she concluded.
