Australasia Museums

Australasia, comprises Australia, New Zealand, the island of New Guinea, and neighboring islands in the Pacific Ocean. Geopolitically, Australasia sometimes refers to Australia and New Zealand together.

Australia and New Zealand have a common English colonial heritage. However, their first peoples, the Australian Aborigines and the New Zealand Maori, had and continue to have very different cultures and histories, make each country unique.

Australia & New Zealand’s major cities and rural hubs have some of the most engaging museums in the world. Below is a list of some of the leading museums that will be highlighted in “Joy of Museums”:
