Also consider a Circle Pacific ticket, which is similar to an around the world ticket but is usually cheaper as it covers a limited region. A Circle Pacific ticket uses a combination of airlines to connect Australia, New Zealand, North America and Asia; with choices of stopover options in the Pacific. We hear that Circle Pacific airfares are better priced from the USA and Asia, than they are from Australia.
