In 2001, we set out to do something different: to offer travelers to the Australia & the South Pacific
vacation experiences that were far from ordinary. Vacations for couples and friends that are indulgent,
hip – even sexy. Vacations for families that are cool, energetic, bonding experiences. Truly unique,
personal vacations.

It seems a lot of people like their vacations to be that way. They made Springboard the fastest growing
travel company to Australia and the South Pacific. And now we are excited to offer the same kind of
unique, hip and cool adventures in Europe!
Here you’ll find a collection of some of the best vacation experiences to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji,
Tahiti, Vanuatu, the South Pacific and Europe.
If unique is your style, then call us or your travel agent. We know this stuff. We love this stuff. We’re
inspired to create vacations that will linger in a lifetime’s worth of memories.
