No other country offers the incredible contrast, colorful history, natural wonder, iconic wildlife, and exciting adventures that await your attendees in Australia.

This is a land of changing landscapes—from the ”sunburnt country” of its southern mountain ranges to forests and snow-covered slopes. Its tropical north holds the treasures of the rainforest, with its showy birds and astonishing wildlife. From its center rises Uluru, the rust-red reminder of its Aboriginal inhabitants and their mystical history.

The country’s biggest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, offer a cosmopolitan experience to rival London or New York. Australia has a unique variety of wildlife. You’ll see kangaroos and wallabies hopping across paddocks; koalas munching on eucalyptus leaves; huge crocodiles patrolling the northern mangroves; echidna (which look like a cross between an anteater and a porcupine) searching for termites, and (if you’re incredibly lucky) you may even catch a glimpse of the near-extinct scaly-tailed possum.
If it’s sea life you love, a scuba dive or snorkeling adventure in Australia’s incredible Great Barrier Reef will show you a world that rivals any aquarium on Earth. Adventure abounds here. You can add activities to your group’s itinerary that include bungee jumping, skydiving, bushwalking in the outback, golfing, trekking through the world’s oldest rainforest … the list of adrenaline-activating activities is long.
As is the list of more cultural pursuits—seeing a show at the Sydney Opera House, perusing Melbourne’s many art galleries, or strutting with the horsey set at the annual running of the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse. Australians are easy-going and helpful with a natural welcoming spirit. An oft-heard expression, “She’ll be right, mate,” expresses the optimistic, warm, and friendly attitude that exudes from everyone you’ll meet “down under.”
