Overview

An 18-day romp through Australia's Cities, Parks, Forests, Beaches, Reefs, and the Outback. Australia is one of the world's most dreamed-of destinations. Let Janis and Merri show it to you in comfort, with easy-moderate walks and 3-4 star accommodations! This once-in-a-lifetime, authentic Australian experience takes us from the Sydney Harbor in the Tasman Sea to Pert on the Indian Ocean, to the Coral Sea, with its jewel city Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, AND, we will a stop off in Australia's Aboriginal culture center: Urulu (Ayers Rock), the heart of a vast and remote region known simply as the OUTBACK. Diverse, vast, sometimes cosmopolitan, sometimes so remote you'll wonder if there's anyone else on the continent!
