From these two cities, it’s easy to find direct flights to places like Nadi, Fiji or anywhere in New Zealand or Australia.

When is the best time to fly to Oceania?

Obviously, with such a large region, there’s no one best time to visit. The weather varies quite a bit—so while you’re experiencing a cold winter season in Australia, some islands in French Polynesia might still have plenty of warm summer weather. Generally, many of the islands in the French Pacific, like Fiji and Tahiti, offer sunny, tropical weather year-round. New Zealand’s winters offer a perfect escape for a ski trip. And springs and falls are generally good times for visiting pretty much anywhere. The only season you might want to be careful about is the humid, rainy season of the islands, from December to April.
