I have always been intrigued by the land “down under” (though I never really could pull off a convincing “g’day, mate!”). Australia may be the smallest of the seven continents, but it’s the world’s largest island and sixth largest country. Rainforest, desert, big cities, the largest tropical reef in the world – there’s so much to see. So much, in fact, that planning a trip to this island continent can seem overwhelming.
But while seeing all three million square miles of Australia might not be possible (that would take a LOT of years of saved up vacation time), with Adventures by Disney you can see much of what makes this such an amazing place to visit (on a vacation timeline that your boss will actually approve).
Here are just a few of the highlights of the 12-day, 11-night Australia vacation.
The Great Barrier Reef
It’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders and the only living thing that can be seen from outer space, and with Adventures by Disney you can explore the Great Barrier Reef with a private marine biologist. Snorkel alongside a dazzling array of sea life or view the reef three feet below the surface from inside a semi-submersible vessel.
In Australia’s famed outback you’ll enjoy a privately guided hike around the base of sacred Ayers Rock, also known by its Aboriginal name, Uluru.
Explore Scenic Sydney
Pedal around Sydney Harbor on a privately guided bike tour, visit the stunning Sydney Opera House and get a private surfing lesson at the famous Bondi Beach.
Aboriginal Cultural Park
Participate in Aboriginal traditions as Tjapukai tribe members share their culture with song and dance. Listen to a didgeridoo and learn how to throw a boomerang and a spear.
Soar over eucalyptus trees on zip lines. Paddle a sea kayak on the sparkling waters of Coles Bay. And visit the Tasmanian Devils, wallabies, koalas, wombats and other intriguing animals at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.
With Adventures by Disney you can rest assured knowing that the itinerary planning details are handled for you, giving you more time to channel your inner kangaroo and pack your pouch (or suitcase, whichever you prefer) for your exciting Australian vacation!
