Best of Australia (OAHA)
In case you hadn’t noticed, Australia is an awfully big place. So big, in fact, that you’d need to come back a few times to get it all. Don’t have that kind of time? Hop aboard this 14-day trip through Australia’s eastern and central states and make the most of the time you do have. Offering a solid mix of must-do experiences and uncommon adventures, you’ll learn to surf at Byron Bay, sail the Whitsundays, sleep under the stars at a cattle station and go spearfishing with the local Aborigines. The best part: there’s still plenty more to come back for.
Highlights: Sleep out under the stars in the Outback, go spearfishing with the locals in Cape Tribulation, sail through the gorgeous Whitsundays, hang ten in Byron Bay
This is hardly a sleepy trip. Rather, this is the perfect 12-day adventure for sailing buffs that want to experience the blue waters of Australia, as well as off-road enthusiasts looking to explore via private 4x4s. We’ve got an exclusive beachside permanent tented camp to stay at on sandy Fraser Island, and once we’re north of Cairns, we’ll spend 3 days with Aborigines learning spearfishing in mangroves, amongst other things. While “dreamtime” is a mythology central to indigenous Australian society, we’re pretty sure you’ll want to be wide awake for this trip.
Highlights: Sleep under the stars at a remote cattle station, zip over dunes in a 4x4 on a remote sand island, sail from island to island through the Whitsundays on a maxi yacht, spearfish and cook what you catch with Aboriginals, make your own Aboriginal artwork, learn about life in remote communities with a local host.
