Cool cities, captivating coastlines, wonderful wildlife and heaps of adventure – Australia has it all. But what are the best ways to see Australia? That is a question I am often asked….
I don’t believe there is another country that is so diverse in culture, landscape or climate. You can ski in one part of the country or bake on a beach on another; enjoy a mojito with the ‘in’ crowd in Sydney or have some bush tucker with the Aborigines in the Red Centre. When you think it takes the same length of time to fly from Dublin to Dubai as it takes to fly from Melbourne (South) to Katherine (North) – that gives you an idea of how vast this country is. Deciding on the best ways to see Australia can be the tricky part. This is where Australian Sky come in.
Australian Sky are specialists in organising holidays to Australia. Whether you require a holiday to one of the trendy cities or a fully escorted tour, they can do it for you. Australian Sky work with all airlines so they are able to provide the best possible fares and routings. No need to worry about lengthy stopovers, they will get you there the most convenient way. I particularly like their selection of escorted and self-drive tours. You can choose to go on a fully escorted tour or add on an independent tour to your existing trip. Trying to see the Great Barrier Reef, Ayers Rock, the Great Ocean Road and Sydney on one trip, is a tough challenge! Australian Sky have managed to do it with their 12 night Australian Icons tour. Price for 12 nights accommodation on a B&B basis, internal flights (international flights not included), a luxury coach tour with local guides throughout, as well as some meals is €2,139 per person.
Many Irish visitors tend to spend time with relatives or friends but want to get out and explore some of the country on their own. Australian Sky’s three night tours are perfect for this. You can add on nights before or after the tours and having an experienced guide will allow you to learn so much more than if you travelled alone. Explore the Red Centre on their Alice Springs, Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon tour from €899. Enjoy three nights in Sydney with a tour to the Blue Mountains from €549; or snorkel in the world’s best coral reef for only €459 with their Cairns and Great Barrier Reef tour! These tours include accommodation, some meals and excursions with a luxury coach and tour guide throughout.
If you prefer to self drive, Australian Sky have that covered too. My favourite is their sixteen day Best of Queensland self drive. Visit Fraser Island, Harvey Bay, the stunning Whitsunday Islands, the Great Barrier Reef, Eurimbula and Undara National Parks, Daintree Rainforest, Mission Beach as well as some volcano and wildlife tours! They organise hotels on a B&B basis and car hire and you do the rest. Price for this sixteen day trip is only €1,449 per person ( flights excluded). Car hire is not too expensive, roads are generally good and Australia is the perfect place for a road trip!
So whether you want a luxury weekend in Sydney, a feast with the Aborigines at Ayers Rock or a fully escorted tour, Australian Sky can organise this for you. They will tailor make your holiday to Australia to suit your wishes.
