Best Vacation Ever

Everything was perfect for our trip. Everything I wanted to see and the package Chris put together was perfect. It was action packed but got to see everything we wanted to see. Working with About Australia was smooth and an easy process. Chris spend a lot of time putting the package together and we couldn't be more pleased. All the hotels were in great locations for us to visit the sites. Can't thank you enough for the best vacation ever.

Our first trip to AUSTRALIA did not disappoint! Our Itinarary was perfect for us Alaskan adventurers! A well rounded trip from Sydney to Cairns and so much in between. We hiked in the Blue Mountains and swam at Lake Eacham walked amongst the kangaroo s and Cockatoo s and held the precious Koala bears. We romped in the rain forest and stayed at Rose Gums enjoyed the 3 bedroom treehouse with all the creature comforts! On to Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef a life long memory to say(...)

I hope to return one day and will definitely contact Ana again.

As you walk through spectacular rock formations along rugged coastlines, mesmerizing blue waters lapping at you, you’ll wonder if this is really Australia. Kangaroos lie around you, relaxing into a sun-induced nap as the waves crash against the rocky shores. Koalas snooze above you, sitting high among the eucalyptus trees.

One day you’re exploring unique islands where native wildlife roam free, and the next you’re discovering the delights of world-class cities that rival New York. This is Australia.

Come to the land where the littlest penguins in the world march back home on the beach before you. Walk the eclectic lanes alive with colorful street art, hiding a world of extraordinary shops and cafes just waiting to be discovered in Melbourne. Taste your way through the gourmet produce of Tasmania, one of world’s top food and wine destinations.

With breathtaking islands and iconic cities to explore, this package takes you to the best of Australia’s islands, wildlife and culinary delights!

Melbourne

Here’s your chance to experience one of the world’s most highly sought after cities, where you’ll spend 3 unforgettable nights.

In Melbourne, cultural pursuits are woven into the fabric of everyday life. Its exquisite food and coffee scene sets trends around the world. Local art galleries are supported by world-class museums and venues, drawing visitors from all over the globe.

It’s even considered Australia’s sports capital. Stay long enough and you’ll find yourself gripped by the locals’ passion for AFL football, cricket and horse racing.

This vacation package includes TWO essential Melbourne experiences:

Take a closer look at Melbourne and you’ll discover a whole world of cobbled “lanes” tucked within the heart of the city, where every turn reveals a coffee shop, café, bar or restaurant.

Discover these hidden gems on a fun walking tour guided by a passionate local. You’ll find unassuming pubs, tiny restaurants with extensive menus, boutique shops, breathtaking street art and secret spots only locals would know.

You’ll soon feel like a local yourself – all on your first day!

After your stay in Melbourne you’ll head to South Australia. Arrive in Adelaide, where you’ll spend 2 nights in a 4-star hotel.

Here you’ll find that fantastic food and wine is a way of life. The city boasts a great nightlife with many high-end, experimental and eclectic offerings throughout the city.

Adelaide pairs wonderfully with Melbourne because unlike the international melting pot that makes up the most stylish city in Australia, Adelaide is quintessentially Australian.

On your free days you can enjoy this authentically laid-back city, where you may want to:

There’s never a dull moment in this sophisticated city!

Kangaroo Island

After Adelaide you’ll head to Kangaroo Island for a spectacular Kangaroo Island guided exploration. This is a very special destination, often described as a zoo without fences. Echidnas, platypuses, goannas, wallabies and kangaroos are both thriving and mesmerizing. Half the native bushland on Kangaroo Island remains just as it was when British navigator Matthew Flinders put a name to this untamed wilderness in 1802.

  • You’ll walk among sea lions at Seal Bay.
  • Enjoy an amazing 2-course lunch with small-town island charm.
  • Take a walk under the eucalyptus trees looking for koalas.
  • Spend the afternoon in Flinders Chase National Park, a renowned natural sanctuary for kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and echidnas.
  • See breathtaking natural formations, unusual landmarks and dappled coves, including Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. As the wind plays with your hair, you might be amazed to think that over thousands of years this same air and sea spray pounded solid rock into these unlikely formations.

Hobart

After your Kangaroo Island adventure you’ll fly to Australia’s largest island and smallest state, Tasmania. Experience the tantalizing quiet life of Hobart, the capital of Australia’s island state of Tasmania. Here you’ll spend 3 nights in a fashionable 4-Star hotel located a block from Hobart’s buzzing waterfront.

The well-preserved turn-of-the-century architecture is just the beginning of Hobart’s stunning beauty and character. Its exquisite parks, historic buildings, famous markets and burgeoning music and arts scene are nestled beneath pristine Mount Wellington. Its renowned Museum of Old and New Art draws visitors from around the world for its controversial collections of antiquities and modern art. The national parks fringing the city showcase Tasmania’s jaw-dropping scenery of rolling green ranges and sparkling blue bays.

But Tasmania’s real star is its fantastic food and drink.

With some of the cleanest air and waterways in the world, Tasmania boasts the most remarkable produce to delight your taste buds.

This vacation package includes a delectable tour showcasing the best of Tasmania’s food, wine and wildlife

We’ll get you started on day 9 of your adventure with a seven course, small-group gourmet tour to Bruny Island. Just a short cruise from Hobart’s waterfront, Bruny Island is a perfect mix of

Still haven’t seen enough?

Australia is huge and will always leave you wanting more. With so much to experience and see, 3 additional nights in Sydney may be just what you need!

Sydney Harbour credit Destination NSW

You’ve no doubt seen the quintessential picture of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House. This architectural marvel is famous the world over for its iconic design, but the inside is just as interesting. During your stay in Sydney you’ll tour the Opera House to view some of its performance halls and see the glass-enclosed foyer that offers incredible views of the Harbour. See up close the details that went in to the making of the Opera House while an expert guide gives you the inside scoop from the Opera House’s inception to final opening. Don’t forget – while the Opera House is an unmatched architectural spectacle, there are actual opera performances held there near daily! Optional tickets to see a performance are a great way to experience the Opera House in action. Though there are performances near daily, tickets do sell out FAST and it is best to purchase tickets ahead of time.

Sydney is never short on things to do and is home to many of Australia’s best museums, art galleries, and more. Take a day for yourself if you wish to just explore the city and let serendipity take over. You could end up finding yourself on a tour of Sydney’s wineries, spending time at Bondi Beach, hiking the coastline or simply sitting back at one of many open air cafes and restaurants.

With all the legwork done for you, why travel any other way? From start to finish, your vacation should be effortless. Book your vacation now. Leave the work at work and the planning to us!

Round out your trip in tropical North Queensland

Great Barrier Reef Cairns

Great Barrier Reef, Cairns

Don’t miss your chance to see two amazing world heritage sites while you’re in Australia. Choose to add-on to your vacation and spend 3 nights in tropical  Cairns. Cairns is the gateway to an Australian destination perhaps even more renowned than the Opera House – the Great Barrier Reef. Spend a day cruising out to the reef and don on snorkeling equipment to explore this incredible underwater wonderland. On your free day in Cairns explore the local Marlin Jetty, Esplanade and Night Markets.

Once you’ve rounded out your vacation in Cairns, you’ll be sure that you’ve made the most of your vacation and reflect on the once-in-a-lifetime trip you just had. The last thing you want to feel on your way home is that you missed out on any important destinations. Australia is huge (just about the size of the United States) and trying to see it all in one-go can be difficult. But by planning with us we can ensure that your time isn’t wasted and you’ve experienced the most of Australia all in one trip!
