Free Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific visitor guides and maps

Free guides from Jasons

Free guides from Jasons

Planning trip to Australia, New Zealand or some islands in South Pacific? You can get free visitor guides or maps from Jasons.

Although it is not totally free if you reside outside Australia or New Zealand. If this is the case you will need to pay for postage.

You may ask why do you need any of these publications if you already have Lonely Planet or Rough Guide or similar guide? Of course it is up to you, but these mentioned above books usually takes about two years to publish which means a lot of things can be different now. Jasons publications are updated every year so you can expect to get latest information about attractions, accommodation, transportation and etc. Maps are not very detailed and better to be used only as references, although I was happy with map of Samoa I used to drive around islands.

At the moment of this post they have visitor guides and/or maps of Cook Islands, Fiji, New Caledonia, Niue, Norfolk Island, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, part of Australia and New Zealand. But they update this list regularly, so check it later again.

Some of these guide could be found at i-sites or airports in New Zealand. Didn’t see them available in Australia (at least in Sydney) in information centres.
