Tour Overview

Melbourne has been voted the most liveable city in the world several times and it is here that we begin our 17-day tour to explore the best of what Australia has to offer. After a visit to James Cook's cottage and St Patrick's cathedral we venture into the stunning countryside in one of the finest wine-growing regions in Victoria, the Yarra Valley. The magnificent country capital, Canberra, is our next destination and we have the chance to learn about Australian history, as well as tour the embassies whose facades reflect the architectural style of their native countries. From here, we hit all the major hotspots: dazzling Sydney, the Great Barrier Reef off Cairns, the wholly unique Darwin and the famous Ayers Rock. Australia's natural attractions are next to none and this 17-day adventure will ensure you never look at the natural world the same again.

Adventures Abroad really puts emphasis on in-depth experiences and guides who have the knowledge and skills to make your trip a memorable experience.

We really enjoyed the commentary of the local guides and they really enhanced our knowledge and enjoyment of the trip. Very professional and were passionate about their area of expertise. First rate. Jonathan went above and beyond what is expected of a tour leader. He was very conscientious about looking after all the travelers. Always a smile on his face no matter what the circumstance.

Kay O. (Silver Spring, MD, US)

Very good trip. Jonathan was clearly intent on giving us a great tour of Australia so that we would come away loving it as much as he does and he definitely succeeded in my case! I especially enjoyed all the city tours, Kuranda, Alice Springs Desert Park, and the Blue Mountains.

Robert O. (Silver Spring, MD, US)

Jonathan is a true gem of a tour leader. Jonathan was truly amazing organizing. He had very good knowledge of Australia. His attitude was always positive. Jonathan was excellent. I would have no hesitation at all to participate in future tours he leads and would regard the fact that he is leading a tour as a big plus in selecting future tours. Very good tour.
