Welcome to Australia, a country where a casual, outdoor lifestyle intersects with cosmopolitan cities and scenic beauty. It offers you so much—unique wildlife, brilliant colors in the tropics, an Outback adventure, sumptuous restaurants, lively nightlife, fun shopping, and much more—and on this Australia tour, you’ll have a chance to experience it all! Plus, you’ll spend time in beautiful Fiji exploring and relaxing after your grand Australia adventure.

Discover some of Australia’s unique wildlife on an out-of-the-ordinary adventure Globus has arranged...an excursion to Kangaroo Island, where you'll see rare Australian sea lions, the iconic kangaroo, wallabies, koalas, and New Zealand fur seals. You may see crocodiles on your cruise in Kakadu National Park—another special experience included by Globus. In Tasmania, you'll see the famed Tasmanian devil, a carnivorous marsupial with the appearance of a small, stocky dog.

A tour highlight is a unique journey on the legendary Ghan Train. This overnight train journey will offer a fascinating perspective of the Outback as you travel from Alice Springs to Darwin. Of course, this Australia vacation also offers you the opportunity to see Australia’s most famous sights, including the remarkable and colorful Great Barrier Reef, where you'll get to snorkel or take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, and Uluru (Ayers Rock). Also discover its most popular cities, including Melbourne, Cairns, Adelaide, Hobart, Darwin, and Sydney—with plenty of leisure time to explore them on your own. From Sydney, it’s off to Fiji to tour Nadi on the main island, then enjoy leisure time to explore further or relax at your resort.

If you want to explore Australia—and Fiji—and experience the way of life here, this Australia tour is for you. You’re sure to return with lots of photos, memories, and stories to share with friends and family back home.
