For such a young nation, Australia sure does have plenty to offer visitors.
You should no doubt see the country’s icons such as the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, and Uluru (aka Ayers Rock, but please call it Uluru). But beyond that, the country has so much more to extend to the globetrotters that visit.
Get out into the bush and take in some of Australia’s natural beauty. Enjoy a hike along coastal cliffs, take a dip in a billabong in the Northern Territory and take in the picturesque sunsets as you recollect about the adventures of your day. Be on the lookout for some of Australia’s unique wildlife such as kangaroos, the platypus and the wombat. If your journey has you visiting Rottnest Island then be sure to snap a selfie with a cute quokka while there.
There is also an abundance of aquatic activities beckoning you from the embankments of mighty rivers and majestic coastlines. Get out and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, swim alongside whale sharks at Ningoloo Reef. Take a cruise along Daintree River through the rainforest. Slip into a wetsuit and take a surf lesson. Hop aboard a catamaran and sail the Whitsundays.
Try some much loved casual Australian fare such as avocado toast, meat pies or a tasty lamington. Enjoy a romantic dinner while rolling on a tram in Melbourne or while viewing the Opera House in Sydney. Take an excursion to one of Australia’s many wine regions and enjoy some award winning vintages. Belly up at a local pub and order a flight of regional beers. Don’t be afraid to try some of the more unusual offerings as well. Crocodile, emu, and kangaroo are prepared countrywide in various ways. Whatever you’re craving Australia can satisfy it.
Take a walkabout with an Aboriginal guide as they educate about the Dreamtime. See how this ancient culture lives and cares for the environment. Learn about their honored ceremonies and rituals. Taste some bush tucker and contemplate their ancestors as you look about left behind rock art. When you visit Australia, an Aboriginal experience is an absolute must.
Some exemplary festivals and sporting events await enthusiast and those looking to join in the celebration. See Vivid light up Sydney or see her harbour shine as massive fireworks fill the sky on New Year’s Eve. Get dressed in your best finery and indulge in the fanfare that is the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Watch your favorite tennis star try to win the Australian Open. Join the revelry and cheer on an Australia Football League team during Grand Final Day.
I fell in love with Australia so much that after my first visit I decided to make it the first country I specialized in. I have such passion for the destination and what it offers visitors. I derive great satisfaction in helping my clients create their travels here and trust they’ll return home loving Australia as much as I did.
When you’re ready to visit Australia, please contact me. However, I should warn you; once I start talking about Australia it’s hard to get me to stop.

Great memories of a great trip
One of the things that impressed us the most was the way Wally listened to us so he could customize our trip around our interests.
The accommodations he booked for us were all top notch and included an upscale bungalow on the Queensland coast and a lovely boutique hotel on the waterfront of Hobart.
Wally also had loads of practical tips, ranging from how to navigate the airports to some of the best places to shop in Sydney. He also handled our arrangements for a rental car for the week we spent in Tasmania.
All told, Wally worked with us for weeks, revising our itinerary as we tweaked our schedule. Throughout the process, Wally was easy to contact, thoroughly professional and always friendly.
Thanks to Wally, our trip was amazing in every way, and we came home with incredible memories. We couldn’t be happier with the results, and we’re already talking with Wally about another trip next year!
