Below are the original locations Goway has chosen for you to live like a local ( click through for full details). You can stay longer than our suggested packages in any one location or combine two or more. Most travellers combine their local stay with some touring to mainstream iconic sites.

Bay of Plenty, New Zealand – A short distance from Auckland, this area is one of New Zealand’s most popular holiday destinations. For relaxation, beach life, a bit of indulgence and meeting the locals, the Bay of Plenty has all bases covered.

The Gold Coast, Australia - A short distance south of Brisbane, our unique location is on the Queensland/New South Wales border. With its famous beaches and a wide variety of amenities, Aussies prefer this area of the coast to enjoy their vacations.

The Sunshine Coast, Australia – Just north of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast offers pristine beaches, rainforests and national parks, and an array of activities popular with Aussies. They claim to be more laid back than the Gold Coast.

Central Coast, Australia - Just north of Sydney this beautiful area of beaches, lagoons, waterways and national parks is a popular residential area for Aussies, many of whom commute to the city – or city dwellers who want a short distance vacation. Yes, you’ll live like an Aussie.

Raratonga, Cook Islands – Within minutes from the airport, you will be enjoying the white sand, palm-fringed beaches and coral lagoons of this beautiful South Pacific paradise. But when your stay is over, it is the locals you will remember most. We recommend you attend a local church service. 


In all the major cities Downunder (e.g. Sydney, Auckland, Melbourne, Cairns) we can arrange apartment stays offering self-catering facilities. Although perfect for families, not all accept children. Please enquire.
