Australia Summer Adventure
13 NIGHTS GUIDE PRICE £6,000

Our summer is the ideal time to experience Australia’s Tropical North and the deserts of the Red Centre. This itinerary includes some of the country’s natural wonders; see the iconic Ayers Rock, meet the indigenous wildlife in Kakadu National Park, explore Daintree – the oldest rainforest in the world and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

Opt for a stop-over in Asia en-route and perhaps North America on your return to create your own exciting Round-The-World trip!

Overview

Guide Price & Inclusions

3 nights Sydney, 2 nights Ayers Rock, 4 nights Northern Territory including a 3 night fully inclusive Kakadu safari and 4 nights Queensland beach from £5,700 per adult and £2,700 per child under 12 sharing including flights, transfers and accommodation.

Rates subject to travel dates and hotel selection

Suggested Extensions

If wildlife is your focus, why arrive via the direct flight to Perth and make a stop at Ningaloo Reef to snorkel with whale sharks July to August.

Best Time to Travel

This itinerary is best enjoyed from April-September when it’s winter in Australia so the north experiences more pleasant temperatures. The conditions are also best for snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and whale watching. However, it will be cooler in the south so you should expect a more temperate climate in Sydney.

Tips for Families

We suggest families break the long journey to Australia with a stopover. Singapore is a great option with plenty of family-friendly attractions from theme parks to zoos with the opportunity to immerse yourself in a completely different culture, or fly with Qantas directly to Perth and stop over in WA!

Highlights

  • Explore Sydney’s famous landmarks including the Harbour Bridge and Opera House
  • Watch the sun rise over the magnificent Ayers Rock (Uluru)
  • Snorkel among tropical fish and colourful coral at the Great Barrier Reef
  • Discover the world’s oldest rainforest, Daintree
  • Spot crocs and other wildlife in the spectacular Kakadu National Park

In our Client's Words...

Bushbaby never disappoints. Our most recent trip organised by them to Australia was brilliant. The recommendations of where to go and what to do were extremely helpful in finalising our itinerary. Abi always seems to know exactly what we will enjoy doing. As ever all the travel arrangements were organised in detail and any communications were answered very promptly. I can’t wait for our next trip.
