Attention adrenaline junkies! A once-in-a-lifetime climb up the Sydney Harbour Bridge and you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world. Explore the world’s largest sand bar. Big rides, big sights, big thrills. Sights you see in movies. Adventures that will seem out of this world.
You could just relax on a beach or enjoy the spectacular views – we’re just not sure you’ll want to! Take professional surfing lessons. Whitewater raft the rapids of the Tully River. Cable-wakeboarding, kneeboarding, kayaking. Dive the Great Barrier Reef. And that’s just the beginning!
Take a walk on the wild side. Pet comical kangaroos, cuddle with koalas, and discover crocs, emus and dingoes. Trek deep into the rainforests of the Atherton Tableland, swim in waterfalls, and snorkel in search of sub-tropical fish, dolphins, turtles and stingrays.
Australia is famous for so many things. Including animals and reptiles found nowhere else in the world. Kangaroos and koalas. Wallabies and wombats. One of a kind – the Great Barrier Reef. Oldest rainforest in the world. Iconic architecture, the Sydney Opera House. A rich Aboriginal culture with a fascinating European history—from 1788 to 1868, 160,000 men and women from England were sent to Australia as convicts; today it is home to people from more than 200 countries. The world’s largest island is also the world’s smallest continent. Thanks to the rough desert terrain of the outback, most Aussies live near the coast, making for vibrant, sunny beachside cities. Vastly friendly, full of fun, adventure and a love of the great outdoors. You’ll love the Aussie feel with an unhurried pace, laid back lifestyle and sunrises worth getting up for.
Explore everything the land Down Under has to offer: incredible beauty, friendly culture and amazing adventure. All trips to Australia visit Sydney, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.
Highlights in Australia include climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, SCUBA diving and snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef, cable knee-boarding – and (of course!) getting up close and personal with koalas and kangaroos.
My favorite activities were SCUBA diving the Great Barrier Reef and climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, two of the most amazing experiences ever. Everything was perfect and this was easily the best summer of my life.”
