Australia Tours 2014 & 2015 : Explore the Land Down Under

Australia tours offer spectacular coastlines, offshore islands and natural beauty make it among the best in the world for water lovers. Australia is the world’s largest island (and smallest continent) and overflows with exciting opportunities. There is the famous Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef in the world, only a short distance off the country’s northeast coast; Western Australia’s stunning beaches; South Australia’s gorgeous Kangaroo Island and Tasmania, an island rich in history and beauty. Australia's abundance of coastline, offering everything from iconic surf beaches to exclusive, white sand, palm fringed islands is no secret to the locals. Nearly 90 percent of Australians live near the sea. It’s a mesmerizing, stunning backdrop to explore!

Since Australia is quite a long flight from the U.S., particularly from the East Coast, we recommend when taking an Australia tour that you allow a minimum of 14 days, ideally around 21 to get a taste of various regions in Australia.

So you are planning to take a tour of Australia?

First things first - when is the best time take an Australia tour? The seasons run opposite to ours in the United States, so you will want to go from September through May, which is their Spring, Summer and Fall months. March through May is fall, and the temperatures will be cooler. The two most popular and therefore crowded months are December and January.

Where should you visit? That depends on how much time you have. We recommend you allow at least 12 days, and up to 3 to 4 weeks to tour Australia. If you have only 1 week, then go straight for visiting Sydney. If you have 8 to 10 days you can find several combinations of Sydney with Melbourne, Sydney with Brisbane, Sydney with Cairns or Sydney, Ayers Rock and Cairns. With 12 nights you can visit all of the above for a real taste of Australia.

What type of Australia tours can you choose from?  Tour companies have realized that there are different types of vacations that suit travelers needs.  In Australia you can take a city stay, an escorted tour, an independent vacation, a small group tour, a rail tour or a cruise tour.
