About hunting in Oceania
The South Pacific may not be the first destination to come to mind when considering a hunting trip, but New Zealand and Australia both offer outstanding hunting opportunities and are great outdoor adventure destinations for hunters and their families. New Zealand is famous for its mountain game, especially Himalayan tahr and chamois, as well as for large and impressive red stags, along with a variety of other game. All of New Zealand’s game animals were imported by settlers a century ago but have established healthy populations in suitable habitat. Likewise, Australia’s most sought-after game animals, water buffalo and banteng, were transplanted to the continent decades ago but have established large wild populations in the country’s sparsely populated northern and western regions. Australia also has numerous species of deer, including sambar, fallow, red, hog, and rusa deer, and the deer hunting is excellent in many areas. Rabbits, feral hogs, and other introduced mammals are frequently hunted as well. New Zealand and Australia are beautiful, scenic countries and excellent family destinations where hiking, fishing, sightseeing, wine-tasting, and many other activities can be added on to a hunting trip. “Kiwis” and “Aussies” are some of the friendliest people you’ll meet, and tourism in both countries is very well organized and enjoyable.
