Australia Vacations

An escorted tour is one of the most popular ways to see this continent. Tour operators employ skilled, professional tour directors who accompany the group throughout the trip and share their knowledge of Australia with travelers. Many tours combine a segment in Australia with a portion in New Zealand or even a stay in Fiji or Tahiti. Others visit only Australia on well-rounded itineraries that include major destinations.

These trips bring you close to the country's dazzling scenic beauty. Drive into the starkly beautiful outback, and visit wildlife parks inhabited by kangaroos, koalas, wombats and emus. Itineraries allow for excursions to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkeling, scuba diving or sailing, and to Ayers Rock, or Uluru, a massive formation of 36 red-rock domes.

Australia tours also explore sophisticated cities. In Melbourne, guests might take in Melbourne University, the Parliament House or the Queen Victoria Market. Sydney and its world-famous Opera House are key sights, and a cruise of Sydney Harbor is included in some packages, giving travelers a picturesque view of that great city.

In some cases you'll need to fly a long distance to reach the departure city of your tour, so you may want to arrive at least one or two days in advance. This gives you time to rest and get oriented. Most companies offer hotel packages, available as add-ons.
