2018/2019 Term Three:
Australia & New Zealand

Term Three Itinerary

Sydney • Whitsunday Coast • Great Barrier Reef (day excursion) • Brisbane • Queenstown • Auckland • Rotorua


Boomerangs, didgeridoos, kangaroos and kiwis await you on the other side of the globe. Discover the land down under’s unique wildlife and eco-systems, visit natural wonders, and ride the waves before hopping over to New Zealand’s adventures and astounding landscapes. In Term Three of Global High School, you’ll experience the sand, surf, sun and smiles this part of the world is known for.

Start off Semester Two studying in Sydney, Australia. Tour Darling Harbour and see the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House and enjoy a day at one of the city’s many beaches, including the hip Bondi Beach, or take a coastal walk.

Head north out of the city to the Whitsunday Coast, dotted with islands, lined with sublime beaches, and perfect for sun and relaxation. While here, sail to the Great Barrier Reef and discover its unique aquatic life before travelling down the east coast to study in Brisbane, a city that offers a taste of hipster cool, with laid-back cafés, excellent vintage shopping, and an artistic vibe. Visit the area’s Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to meet koalas, feed kangaroos, and learn about unique Australian wildlife.

A marvel of geography, New Zealand offers dramatic landscapes that provided the backdrop for the Lord of the Rings films—no CGI needed here! Known as the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown is a place for adventurers and thrill seekers. Here, we’ll blend study with outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, Frisbee and many more.

Next, we will travel to Auckland. This city offers a remarkable range of scenery, where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and enchanting islands. It’s a great environment to rest, study and recalibrate.

Our final stop in New Zealand is Rotorua. Known for its geothermal activity, the area features numerous geysers and hot mud pools for students to explore before heading across the Pacific Ocean to begin Term Four.
