Tours:

 

 

Education


We specially design general interest or in-depth tours for universities, colleges and schools from around the world.

 

We thoroughly research the most appropriate locations to visit and select the very best guides. They work closely with group leaders to ensure the tour is successful, fascinating and highly educational.

 

Education tours feature expert lecturers and visits to universities and other colleges. Our mission is to make sure everyone goes home with newly obtained credits, along with a new-found fascination for Australia and its remarkable natural and cultural diversity.

 

Following are examples of the types of tours which we have successfully arranged since 1986.

 

  Literature and Culture   Geology

Business

Meet with business people from different walks of life; meet expatriates from your country of origin who have successfully established businesses in Australia (including banks, housing estates, tourism enterprises). Tours can include major cities and country centres where very successful regional developments have taken place. Every group leader has his/her own ideas of places to visit and we do our best to make these happen!

Animal Science

There are a number of diverse possibilities in this category. As an example, we have worked with beef and horse groups, visiting feed lots, farms and staying overnight with farmhosts. Clubs and organisations throughout Australia provide enormously diverse experiences for groups with particular interests. While in Canberra, we always drop into Federal Parliament House - fascinating building which houses the seat of Australia Government.

Geology

Every geology master or professor usually has a clear idea of what the group needs to experience - and there are plenty of possibilities. Visit Cairns and outer regions for extinct volcanic sites, interesting caves (some formed by lava) and the Great Barrier Reef. Further west, towards the centre of Australia Broken Hill features silver and other ore mining, remarkable lunettes at Mungo National Park and the ancient red ranges of Mootwingee.
