With the New Zealand winter and the cold weather about to kick in, it’s a great time for Kiwis to plan an Aussie getaway across the Tasman where the sun is still shining in many parts.

AAT Kings’ holiday experiences offer stress-free travel, luxury air-conditioned vehicles and include all the must-see highlights. Friendly and experienced Travel Directors and Driver Guides share their passion for Australia along the way.

Here are four winter warmer itineraries for some hot holiday inspiration.
