If you think Utopia doesn’t exist then you’ve never visited Oceania. Each country within this small continent is among the most diverse and fascinating areas on the planet, and the biggest country, Australia, is no exception. With its contrasting landscapes, remarkable wildlife and cosmopolitan cities, Australia is a traveller’s dream. Equally as endowed with natural beauty, but much smaller in scale, New Zealand’s flowing rivers, primeval forests and glacial mountains manage to astonish everyone including the natives who refer to it as “Godzone”. Most travellers planning flights to Oceania combine a trip to Australia and New Zealand.

The rest of the continent – Papua New Guinea, the Cook Islands, Guam and American Samoa – remains something of a mystery to many. The more popular islands, especially with honeymooners booking flights to Oceania, are Fiji and French Polynesia. An archipelago of 300 islands, Fiji has some of the best diving in the world and a blend of fascinating cultures. But of all the islands in the continent, the one that epitomises the South Pacific is Tahiti in French Polynesia. Its tropical waters and sandy coves have attracted visitors for years. One traveller, Post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin, was so enamoured with the island that he left his family behind and moved there in search of inspiration.

South Pacific climate

The climate throughout most of the continent is pleasant year-round; winters are mild and almost non-existent in most countries and summers are hot, but not unbearably scorching.

When is the best time to fly to South Pacific?

Australia and New Zealand enjoy their summer from December to February when temperatures are hot but ideal for the beach. Unfortunately this is also peak season when you’ll end up paying top dollar for Oceania flights and accommodations. Winter runs from June to August and is an ideal time to go skiing in both countries.

The islands in the South Pacific including French Polynesia, Fiji and the Cook Islands can be visited any time of year but from May to October, their dry period, the weather’s especially mellow. The rainy season is generally from December to March and tropical cyclones aren’t uncommon at this time.  

Papa New Guinea’s climate is monsoonal: wet from December to March and hot and humid between May and October. Guam, on the other hand, is wet throughout the year and typhoons tend to come round between the months of July and November.

Getting around South Pacific

Although Oceania is a small continent, it’s widespread which means distances are great and flying is the best option in most cases. Australia has two main domestic carriers: Qantas’ subsidiary Jetstar and Virgin Blue. In New Zealand the main regional airlines are Air New Zealand and Origin Pacific.

Buses are another option for long-distance travel in both countries. They’re comfortable, reliable and not as expensive as air travel. But if you’d rather explore the country at your own pace then hiring a car or even a bicycle is also an option.

The easiest way to travel between the islands is by plane and taking domestic Oceania flights is easy. In Fiji, Air Pacific is the national carrier, in the Cook Islands it’s Air Rarotonga and in Papa New Guinea the main airline is Air Niugini. In American Samoa, domestic airline Inter-Island Airways flies between Pago Pago and the Manu’a Islands.

Taxis are readily available in Guam, the Cook Islands, Papa New Guinea and Fiji, however they’re not always metered so it’s best to settle on a fare to your destination before setting out.

How long is the flight to Oceania?

Flights to Oceania will depart from Hong Kong's main airport, Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) t Oceania’s two main destinations are Australia and New Zealand, and the duration of flights to Oceania depends on where you're going. From Hong Kong International Airport to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD), Australia's busiest airport, the fastest direct flight will take around 9h. Other Australian destinations reachable by direct flight, like Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, take a similar length of time. For destination airports without direct flights, like Gold Coast Airport (OOL), the journey may take 18h-20h instead. A direct flight to Auckland Airport (AKL) in New Zealand takes around 11h, while a flight to Christchurch Airport (CHC) with one stop can take up to 15h. Compare flights to Oceania on Cheapflights to find the best Oceania airfare. Keep in mind that cheap flights to Oceania may involve more connecting flights and/or longer wait times between them.

What is the best way to travel around Oceania?

After flying to Oceania, you will have a few options for getting around. As Australia covers seven million square kilometres, and there are plenty of Oceania flight deals, flying is a fast and economical way to see the different parts of the continent. If you have time and feel sociable, however, backpacker buses like Magic Bus are a great way to tour Australia while partying with other travellers. While cruises operate between Australia and New Zealand, travellers typically fly between the countries as it is both fast and economical, with prices comparable to domestic flights. In New Zealand, driving yourself is one of the best ways to see all the beauty the country has to offer. You may consider renting a car or campervan or even buying one for a longer trip. A ferry can get you across the Cook Strait between the North and South Island if you don't want to fly.

What do I need to do before my flight to Oceania?

For cheap flights to Oceania, book flights to Oceania early. Before travelling to Australia or New Zealand, ensure you have the right visa or an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority) for the respective country unless your passport allows visa-free entry. To avoid the risk of being denied entry, make sure your passport is up to date and that it is valid for at least three months after your planned departure date.

What are some things to do in Oceania?

Oceania is a region of spectacular natural beauty and outdoor activities, from the beaches of the Gold Coast to the natural parks and mountains of New Zealand’s South Island. Book flights to Oceania to snorkel off the coast of Queensland on the world's largest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef,catch the waves of Surfer’s Paradise beach, swim with seals and dolphins in Kaikoura, and wander the finest walk in the world on Fiordland’s Milford track, through valleys carved by glaciers, ancient rainforests and cascading waterfalls.

What is good to know if travelling to South Pacific?

  • Australia has so much to offer visitors but one place that most tourists won’t read about in their guide books is the Grampians region, a three hour drive from Melbourne. The region is rich in culture and has some of Victoria’s finest art galleries and fascinating Aboriginal rock art.  
  • If you’ve ever wanted to explore the deep blue without actually having to dive then head to Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World in Auckland, New Zealand where you can travel through a transparent acrylic tunnel on a conveyor belt and watch as the fish, sharks and stingrays, swim around you.
  • While visiting the Cook Islands pick up some unique pieces of island jewelry, craftwork and art at the Beachcomber Gallery, a restored 1845 building once used for Sunday school.
  • Visit the Musée Gauguin in Tahiti. The museum is dedicated to the French artist who lived there and produced some stunning paintings depicting Tahitian life.
  • In Fiji, make sure you see a meke – a traditional Fijian feast, and a dance performed to music by bamboo tubes and the lali, a wooden drum.
  • At the top of a 125m limestone cliff in Guam is Two Lovers Point, the site of an ancient Chamorro legend about two lovers, forbidden from being together, leapt to their deaths from the cliff. There’s a gilded statue of the lovers sitting on a pedestal, reminding visitors of their ill-fated love.
  • Swim among the rare species of fish and watch the butterflies flutter by in Papa New Guinea’s Lake Kutubu. The area has one of just five national parks and the most beautiful scenery in the country.
  • The National Park of American Samoa (Ta’u) is definitely worth a visit. Occupying more than 8,000 acres of land, the park features a paleotropical rainforest, flying foxes and other tropical wildlife.
