And what better way to make the most of the extra time off than with a once-in-a-lifetime trip Down Under?
A country as big as your imagination, Australia has it all – a coastline extensive enough to circumnavigate the globe, fringed with blissful beaches and vibrantly colourful coral reefs, glittering cosmopolitan cities with iconic skylines, ancient rainforests, unique wildlife and boundless terracotta deserts dotted with breathtaking monoliths sacred to an indigenous people with fascinating stories to tell. Australia’s diverse natural history means that the country is a nature lover’s delight which has awed British explorers since James Cook and Joseph Banks first set foot there in 1769. It is now home to 15 World Heritage Sites and 550 national parks. The terrain offers a haven to innumerable species of plants and creatures, many unique to this vast continent.
This stunning holiday, departing on 14 April 2017, offers the chance to discover just how diverse Australia is, from the seasonal southern states of New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia, to tropical Queensland and the Northern Territory’s ‘red centre’, and to see the very best of Australia’s natural and man-made icons – the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, and Sydney Opera House. Excursions include city tours of Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, a full day trip to the Yarra Valley including a winery lunch, a sunset viewing and sunrise tour of Uluru and a Great Barrier Reef cruise.
