Overseas Tours

IZA tours started in regional NSW and then Interstate.  The drive to wander has seen IZA go ever further afield.  Long form tours have taken IZA to the UK, India & Sri Lanka, Nepal & New Zealand.  Short form tours of New Zealands North and South Islands have been frequent and popular. An IZA tourist will partake in some fabulous cricket against some of the worlds great amateur clubs at quaint, historic and memorable grounds.  A tour isn't just about the cricket; side tours, social evenings, sightseeing are all apart of the experience and this makes the tours especially appealing to partners and families.
