The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef

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. Any visitor to this amazing living formation can easily see why it has been called one of the seven natural wonders. 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, six different species of Sea Turtle and another 1,500 species of fish, not to mention some of the thirty species of Whales and Dolphins.

Colorful Cities

Colorful Cities

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’.

The Outback

The Outback

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.

A Few Notes on Australia Travel Tours


When to Visit

If you’re traveling from the Northern Hemisphere, it’s important to note that the seasons are reversed Down Under. That means winters June through August and summertime December through February. That being said, the exact type of weather you’ll encounter largely depend on which regions you plan to visit.

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It’s immense size makes the country’s climate very diverse.If you plan to add places in the Northern Territory like Darwin, we recommend visiting in the winter when you’ll still see temperatures in the high 70’s which is pleasant in comparison to the downpours and scorching weather of the summer. As for Southern Australia, aside from major cities like Sydney and Melbourne, much of this region is actually considered remote. Regardless, you should aim to visit in the winter when wildlife viewing and weather are optimal.

What Activities Can you Do?

Australia is a vast and varied country. It is home to tropical rainforests in the north, desserts in its Red Center and snowfields down in the southeast. So, depending upon what regions you’ve incorporated into your itinerary, you’ll have a wide array of excursions and activities at your fingertips.

If you don’t know where to begin, we recommend using one of Australia’s two major cities, Sydney or Melbourne, as a jumping off point. Both will provide you with ample sightseeing and nearby breathtaking natural beauty for day excursions like the Great Ocean Tour or Blue Mountains World Heritage region.

Looking for something a little more off-the-beaten path? Our Australia travel specialists are happy to help plan your stay in the lovely northern coastal town of Port Douglas. Known for its resorts and the nearby famed Great Barrier Reef, we highly recommend incorporating this gem into your itinerary if you want a taste of Australia's white sandy beaches and mesmerizing ocean wildlife.

This is just the tip-of the ice-berg of what this immense country has to offer. No Australian adventure really looks the same, which is actually the beauty of visiting this incredible and vast country. How you plan to spend your time there truly depends on your preferences and availability. Luckily, are travel specialists are experts at crafting custom Australia tours that hit all your desired highlights and still fit your timeline.

Other Helpful Things to Know

Transportation: If you’re staying primarily in main cities, you’ll be able to easily get around using trains, buses and taxis, or a ride sharing app if you choose so. As for moving between cities and regions, depending on the distance you can either take a train, domestic flight or rent a car. It’s important to note that just like in the UK, Australians drive on the left hand side of the road with the steering wheel on the right hand side of the car. When touring with Global Basecamps, you’ll travel with one of our preferred transport partners who value using the most Eco-Friendly alternatives.

Visas/Passports: Travelers going to Australia must have a passport valid for at least six months after your final departure date. You will also need a valid tourist visa to enter. You can find visa application forms through Australian diplomatic missions, travel agents or Australia’s Department of Immigration & Citizenship. Visas can take up to a few months to process, so it is important that you issue a request as soon as your travel has been confirmed.
