Stretching 1,400 mi along the Eastern coast of Australia and covering an area of 133,000 sq mi, the iconic Great Barrier Reef represents one of the most important ecosystems on the planet.

Dive into the clear blue water surrounding the reef and you'll move into a world of incredibly diverse and colorful marine life. Cruise around with the gentle Whale Shark, 6 different species of Sea Turtle and another 1,500 species of fish, not to mention some of the 30 species of Whales and Dolphins.Browse Sample Trips
Australia's vibrant cities are as much of a destination as the country's natural wonders. Experience the laid-back style of Sydney while visiting the famous harbor and Sydney Opera House. Trendy Melbourne is the capital of sport and culture with plenty of scintillating gastronomic options. Tropical Cairns acts as a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is also close to the Daintree Rainforest, the planet’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest which the Aboriginal people refer to as ‘Wawu-karrba’, or ‘healing of the spirit’.Browse Sample Trips
The terms 'Outback' or 'Red Center' refer to the rugged interior of this vast continent. There is something magical about this silent landscape in the center of Australia, something that the Aboriginal people have understood for centuries. Get up close to the ancient monolith of Uluru (Ayers Rock), explore the massive ochre domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and climb to the rim of Kings Canyon and descend into the spectacular Garden of Eden. At nighttime, as the sky transforms into a sparkling blanket of millions of stars, you'll begin to understand the spellbinding allure of the Red Center.Browse Sample Trips
