This enthralling small group adventure, (maximum of 24 tour members) features the best of rural and urban Australia, including the Outback, pristine wildlife areas, glorious Tasmania coastline and hinterland, the fabulous Central Queensland Fraser Coast and Lady Elliott Island at the southern end of Great Barrier Reef far from the heavily touristed areas of the reef in North Queensland. The tour also includes the tropical top end of Australia's Northern Territory with Darwin and Kakadu National Park, glorious Perth, Western Australia and all of Australia's progressive state capitols cities. We are proud to offer an itinerary that provides the opportunity to visit many areas of the island continent that are rarely experienced by American visitors on a single itinerary.
This tour is a very unique travel experience, designed for discerning travelers who wish to experience the most comprehensive tour of Australia available. The opportunities to meet and interact with the hospitable local Aussies will be yours, on a daily basis. Those who like to walk and hike will have opportunities to do so throughout the tour.

Our tours are conducted in seasons that help insure the greatest likelihood of good traveling weather throughout the tour. This is important because we visit a wide variety of climatic regions and are generally able to avoid unpleasant rain, high temperatures and humidity conditions that can exist at other times of the year.
Finally, we believe that careful attention and decision making must be accorded to the pacing of longer group tours. With that in mind, we have limited single night stops in our itinerary. We also insure by design that our tour members have free time in strategic locations during the tour to explore independently and simply recharge their batteries. Typically long travel days will be followed by relaxed mornings the next day. During our final week the tour features a relaxed pace in two scenic coastal destinations, including a four night stop in central Queensland's Great Barrier Reef country and two nights in the Gold Coast. This touring philosophy over the years has helped insure, at tours end, our adventurers are refreshed, relaxed and yearning for more. We think that is exactly as it should be.
Tour members may do tour extensions on their own arrangements. Some tour extensions may involve additional airfare expense. Please see the AROUND AUSTRALIA TOUR AIR TRAVEL POLICY.
