The Best of Australia
Australia’s natural history is unique: to Charles Darwin it seemed as if “two distinct Creators must have been at work.” The unlikely platypus, peculiar vegetation, magnificent coral reefs — these are just a sample of the natural wonders the “Land Down Under” offers. Vast, lonely stretches of Outback seem to extend into eternity. Lush coastal forests harbor strange marsupials unknown in the rest of the world. And nothing can compare to the Great Barrier Reef, the largest living structure on earth, stretching down the coastline in more than 100,000 square miles of breathtaking coral gardens. There is simply no place else like it.
Australia is an immense land, occupying as much area as the continental United States, so you have chosen you locations carefully; internal flights drastically reduce the amount of travel time, leaving more time to photograph, explore, and just enjoy this great land. At each destination, you will be met by experienced local Australian guides, who have a youalth of information to share.
This trip is designed to show you Australia’s natural wonders. Local guides in each place, who have a wealth of information to share.
