“We loved Melbourne with the Colonial Tramcar dinner (so elegant and delicious), the up close and personal connections with the koalas and wallabies at the Moonlit Wildlife Conservation park, and the history and parade of the little penguins on Phillips Island… All in All, we can’t thank you and About Australia enough for helping us have the trip of a lifetime!”

“What a wonderful trip! Everything from the hotel rooms to the day trips was FIRST CLASS! We enjoyed walking around Melbourne and the trips on the Puffy Billy train and to Phillip Island… The hotels were wonderful. Location, location, location is key, and all locations were ideal. All planned trips were great; we really enjoyed them. I will never forget … the Penguin Parade; AMAZING!”
Kristen, Erin & Sarah
“We had a great trip! Our stay in Melbourne was wonderful. The tour along the Great Ocean Road to see the 12 Apostles was very fun. The scenery was beautiful and the Apostles were stunning! Our favorite thing about the tour was Loch Ard Gorge because we were able to go down to the water…All in all, we really enjoyed working with About Australia to plan our trip. All the hotels and tours that were booked were accommodating, enjoyable and suited our needs perfectly. We also liked using the vouchers that were provided. When we plan our next trip to Australia, we will definitely use About Australia again!”
