Trafalgar Offers Escorted Tours to Australia and the South Pacific
Australia-a country where a casual, outdoor lifestyle intersects with cosmopolitan cities and scenic beauty. It offers you so much-unique wildlife, brilliant colors in the tropics, an Outback adventure, sumptuous restaurants, lively nightlife, fun shopping, and much more-and on this tour, you'll have a chance to experience it all! But first, you'll stop in tropical Fiji, where you can pamper yourself at the spa, swim, shop, or do absolutely nothing!
Discover some of Australia's unique wildlife, including the famed Tasmanian Devil, a carnivorous marsupial with the appearance of a small, stocky dog; the iconic kangaroo, which number roughly 40 million in Australia; koala; crocodile; and Little Penguins, the world's smallest penguin, which you'll see emerge from the sea and march across the beach to their sand dune burrows during the Penguin Parade in Melbourne.
Some of the most popular sights and destinations included on many popular tours to Australia include:
Sydney (NSW): Sydney is more than just the magnificent Harbour Bridge and Opera House. No other city has beaches in such abundance, and few have such a magnificently scenic harbor. Our advice is to board a ferry, walk from one side of the bridge to the other, and try to spend a week here, because you're going to need it. Great Barrier Reef (QLD): It's a glorious 2,000km-long (1,240-mile) underwater coral fairyland with electric colors and bizarre fish life -- and it comes
completewith warm water and year-round sunshine. When you're not snorkeling over coral and giant clams almost as big as you, scuba diving, calling at tropical towns, or lying on deserted island beaches, you'll be trying out the sun lounges or enjoying the first-rate food. Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) & Uluru (Ayers Rock) (NT): This sacred, mysterious, and utterly unforgettable landscape may well be the highlight of your time in Australia. Uluru and Kata Tjuta demand at least 3 days to see everything there is to offer. Ghan Train: This overnight train journey will offer a fascinating perspective of the Outback as you travel from Alice Springs to Adelaide.
