Coming to Australia?

THEN WE CAN HELP


Part of our work is arranging holidays for singles, couples, family groups and larger groups of like-minded travellers. We develop itineraries to suit each request and make sure the tours as comprehensive or as leisurely as desired. Following are some ‘see and do’ suggestions in each State of Australia:

 

  New South Wales   Victoria   Western Australia   Queensland
  Tasmania   South Australia   Northern Territory   Australian Capital Territory

NEW SOUTH WALES

Sydney Harbour Bridge

South Head, Sydney Harbour

Sydney Opera House

Sydney Harbour Bridge

This was the first settled state in Australia when Captain Arthur Phillip arrived in what is now Sydney at Port Jackson with 12 boatloads of convicts and redcoat soldiers. Our guides will take you through the famous Rocks area describing times gone by as you walk through historic buildings.

 

Visit the many museums, art galleries and Taronga Zoo. A cruise on Sydney Harbour and a visit to the Opera House are two musts. Days and overnight tours are recommended to the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley for wines and gold and Southern Highlands for historic towns, wine, golf and gardens.

Or take a plane ride to outback Broken Hill, visiting Mutawintji Aboriginal lands, Kinchega National Park and its spectacular Minindee Lakes, Mungo National Park, and the Opal Mining town of White Cliffs with the fun of sleeping in an Underground Motel and talking with the locals.

 

In other parts of New South Wales, stay in a luxury safari camp surrounded by tall eucalyptus forest, a beachside bungalow right on the beach, a sophisticated resort in the heart of the Blue Mountains, or with a friendly family on a farm where you can take part in day-to-day activities.

TASMANIA

Our island State has much to offer from rugged Bruny island for scenery, endemic birds, penguins and other small mammals to Hobart the capital with its history from convict time and Launceston and towns north. The northwest of Tasmania gives you the historic town of Stanley and Woolmark at the very tip.

 

Make a visit to Port Arthur convict prison which holds so much history of the convict times, visit the beautiful town of Strahan and cruise on the magnificent Gordon River to view incredible wilderness scenery, walk the trails of Cradle Mountain, and sit and ponder the beauty of Wine Glass Bay in Freycinet National Park. Feed the native possums, quolls and Tasmanian Devils from your remote and cosy cabin.

Adelaide is a pictureque city with wide streets and set in squares, wonderful museums and galleries and great shopping. Day trips to the vineyards of the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale will have you tasting some of the best wines in the world.

 

Kangaroo Island is a must to spend two days with our excellent guiding company - rugged coastline, koalas, Tamar wallabies and Kangaroo Island Kangaroo (both only found on the island), plants, flowers, great food and wines.

 

The South Australian outback provides experiences you’ll remember for a lifetime. Stay in a private villa surrounded by bushland and superb views of the Flinders Ranges, take a safari in the Gawler Ranges, hire a houseboat on the Murray River, visit the wetlands of the Coorong for vast numbers of waders and other birdlife.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA

If you want to be adventurous we suggest the Indian Pacific train across the Nullarbor to Perth, or fly in daily. Visit Rottnest Island travelling by boat down the picturesque Swan River, where you will find the unusual Quokkas, Wildflowers in WA are at their best in September, October, miles and miles of fantastic colour.

 

 

At the top of WA we have Broome and then the Kimberleys and the Bungle Bungles - excellent outback. Or you might like to swim with the dolphins. There is much to do.

 

 

 


NORTHERN TERRITORY

Kakadu National Park

Darwin is our most northern city and from here you link with Kakadu National Park, Katherine and other outback areas. The Top End is filled with billabongs (waterholes), crocodiles, giant termite mounds, colourful birds, kangaroos, Aboriginal art and crafts and magnificent escarpments and waterfalls. Stay at a safari camp in Arnhem Land on a Registered Sacred Site where you can view ancient Aboriginal Rock Art and view the abundant wildlife in the area. Take an extended tour through Kakadu, Nitmiluk and Litchfield National Parks for a comprehensive understanding of these very important and beautiful Parks. Spend time in an Aboriginal community to learn of the culture and art of its people.

 

Alice Springs is in the heart of Australia and the surrounding desert landscapes are truly inspiring. Rugged ranges, sharp gorges, dry river beds combine with a colourful culture to produce images not seen anywhere else. There’s much to see in this famous town – historic buildings, remote are services such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the School of the Air, art galleries and museums featuring the best of Aboriginal art, and a ‘must go’ – the Alice Springs Desert Park.

 

Of course, Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) are essential in any visit to central Australia. These are of major importance to Aboriginal culture and heritage and visitors are given the opportunity to learn of the significance to the local indigenous people. Tours around the base of Uluru and in the valleys of Kata Tjuta are invaluable experiences.

The tropical World Heritage listed rainforest area of tropical north Queensland is a ‘living museum’ of flora and fauna. We have tours to suit those with a general interest to those with specific interests such as bird-watching. The Daintree and Cape Tribulation areas are the region’s most famous rainforest tracts with unspoiled rainforests, 4WD safaris, mangrove and crocodile-watching cruises. The Atherton Tablelands contain some of the most beautiful rainforests in the Wet Tropics as well as lakes, rivers, national parks and spectacular waterfalls.

AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY

Canberra where the Federal Government presides over parliament and the politicians live and work it is approximately central between Sydney and Melbourne, and well worth a visit. This beautifully planned city, with its magnificent Lake Burley Griffin, features the National Museum, the National Art Gallery, the National War Memorial, and of course, the extraordinary Parliament House which is a Canberra ‘must do’!
