Australia Tours

Small Group Australia Tours

Crystal blue waters, red-stained deserts, limitless skies. Australia’s vast landscape remains unmatched. Victorian hills hint at former gold rush glory, while Darwin’s Aboriginal art sites showcase ancient wonders. See black-flanked rock-wallabies hop past Ayers Rock, and watch its sandstone smolder against the colours of sunrise and sunset.
Get a birds-eye view of the Twin and Jim Jim Falls while flying high in a small-engine plane, and walk across the steel arch of the Harbour Bridge. Inhale the fragrant eucalyptus of the Blue Mountains as its haze crosses over the gum forests.

Where To Go In Australia
Our Australia group tours guide you through this country's vast terrain. Walk the wide, leafy streets of Melbourne before heading to the stately capital of Canberra. Spend the day amongst marine life at Cairns’ Great Barrier Reef, and absorb the energy of Darwin’s open-air marketplace. View the sunset at Ayers Rock, then end your tour in Sydney’s white-beached harbours.

 

Sydney
Australia's largest city is a showcase of iconic sights like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the famed Opera House. Sydney attracts visitors from around the world, and many of them even choose to stay.
Melbourne
The capital of Victoria, Melbourne is also the heart of the nation's cultural institutions. Explore this UNESCO City of Literature, or attend one of over 60,000 concerts hosted in the city annually.
Cairns
Cruise the sapphire waters from Cairns’ shoreline to the Great Barrier Reef, and dip your hand into the coral-filled waters. Then travel the Kuranda Scenic Railway and discover its steamy rainforests.
Darwin
Australia’s most northern city, Darwin is a global blending of old, new, and unique cultures. Walk the dazzling outdoor markets, and get up close with crocodiles with the help of a qualified “Dundee.”
Canberra
Visit the distinctive, embassy-lined streets of Canberra, Australia’s capital city. The stone walls of the Australian War Memorial inspire awe with its Byzantine cross-shaped construction.
Ayers Rock
Head to the centre of Australia and stand beneath the thousand-foot monolith Uluru, also called Ayers Rock. The weathered sandstone spellbinds visitors with its glowing red colour as the sun sets.
Frequently Asked Questions
+
Do you need a visa to travel to Australia?

Yes, most travellers entering and exiting Australia are required to have either a tourist visa or Electronic Travel Authority visa (ETA) in addition to their passport. Both types allow you to visit Australia for up to 3 months. The difference is largely cost and where and how you apply. Certain countries may apply for an ETA online. Check with your country to see if you qualify.

+
Is Australia safe?

Overall, Australia is considered a low-risk country and is extremely safe for travellers. Both violent and petty crime rates are low, and pickpockets are uncommon even in heavily touristed areas. The greatest risk to travellers comes from the natural environment. Be vigilant of wild animals and riptides and don’t wander into isolated areas except with knowledgeable tour guides, and you should be fine.

+
When is the best time to visit Australia

Australia lies in the Southern Hemisphere, which means when the rest of the world is experiencing winter, Australia gets hot summer days and nights. The best time to visit is September and October, when the beaches are still warm enough to swim in and the air is cool enough to go on day-long hikes.

ABOUT:
With a background in history and museums I have worked with groups and given tours for years. I love to travel, to experience the thrill of discovering a new place and to witness its differences. For me, traveling is all about the people, those connections you make with locals and fellow travellers along the way. I prefer to truly immerse myself in the culture!

ABOUT:

Name:
Jonathan Hodgson

EDUCATION:
BA in Psychology at McGill University; MBA at the University of British Columbia; self-educated passion for history and culture.

LANGUAGE:
English; conversational French; improving Spanish and Russian. And a decent Scottish accent.

TOURS LED:
I have led tours in over 100 countries over the last 14 years of working for Adventures Abroad on all of the continents except for Antarctica.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Where to begin? Each place has something that makes it a special destination. A few that spring to mind: Kaieteur Falls in Guyana; the snow-covered mountains of Ladakh, India; sipping tea in a chaikhana of the old town of Bukhara, Uzbekistan; and watching the changing colours of Uluru (Ayers Rock) at sunset.

ABOUT:
Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.
