Australia Travel Specialist


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

Reviewed By JB Stanley - Phoenix, Arizona | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
It was our good fortune to work with Wally Jones to arrange our trip to Australia.
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!

I have been working with Wally Jones for 12 years. I use Wally to book travel for an executive team with a heavy and complicated travel schedule. Wally has extensive travel knowledge both in Domestic and International travel. He always goes the extra mile to make sure everything is in order for our team and uses his local contacts to make sure they have the best travel experience possible. I recommend Wally without hesitation.

Very well organized first trip to London and Paris

Reviewed By First Timer to Europe - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Wally was easy to work with. He took a generous amount of time to speak with me on the phone multiple times during the process of planning my vacation. He has knowledge of very good tour companies and reliable transportation companies to provide services where I traveled (London/Paris). Wally made it very easy for me by emailing a final grouping of vouchers that I printed and took with me on my trip. These vouchers not only acted as tickets in some cases, but also were a good way for me to remember my scheduled events. Because of the help Wally provided me, my trip was much easier and stress free. This was my first time to both London and Paris, so having the help of someone who has been there before, and understands the best ways to plan, was invaluable.

Wally has been my travel agent for years now. He is my rock. To date, I don't think Wally has ever made a mistake in my reservations. He has attention to detail which I don't have the fortune to have.
I don't know how he does what he does so well, but I am grateful.
In short, I highly recommend Wally to any of my friends should they need help with their travels.
Thank you,

Portugal with Viking, one of the best Viking Trips

Reviewed By Larry & Mary - Suwanee, Georgia | Traveled to Portugal ~ Europe
Wally has coordinated several trip for us with our friends in Phoenix to Europe, Alaska, and the Caribbean. He has done exceptional planning and coordinating travel and lodging arrangements as we are in Atlanta and travel companions are in Phoenix. We recently had our travel plans to Portugal interrupted by a last minute flight attendant strike in Germany with Lufthansa and when we were notified he already had travel options available to us for Phoenix and Atlanta to make sure our trip was not interrupted. He does an excellent with taking care of the details and updates.
