If you haven’t got months and months of time to explore Australia and New Zealand, AAT Kings’ Short Break holidays are the perfect way to see the sights. Ranging from 2 to 7 days in length, these short holidays combine all of the must-see highlights and give you just enough time to fit it all in without being in a rush. You’re also given your own choice from three accommodation standards, as well as selected meals – it’s the complete holiday experience, but in a smaller package.
You’ll travel with different Driver Guides and a new group of like-minded travellers each day. Which means that not only will you experience the best that Australia and New Zealand have to offer, but you’re also given the opportunity to make new friends! So if you find yourself wanting to see more of Australia and New Zealand, but only have time for a short break, these are the perfect trips for you to get out on the road and experience true beauty.
