Australian Safari with Fiji (PLE)

24 Day Tour from Brisbane to Coral Coast

2021 Tour Details

If your idea of meeting the locals is cradling koalas, hand feeding kangaroos, and laughing with a school of clownfish, then this is the vacation for you. Animal lovers unite on this spectacular safari tour of Australia. From Brisbane’s Australia Zoo, “Home of the Crocodile Hunter,” to Alice Spring’s Kangaroo Sanctuary, “Home of the Kangaroo Dundee,” you’ll get to know Down Under’s most colorful creatures and characters. The furry fun continues with a hop over to Melbourne to witness Phillip Island’s famous heartwarming Penguin Parade. Wombats and wallabies welcome you to the island state of Tasmania, as does the infamous Tasmanian devil—in its own unique way. Going below the surface, this in-depth tour of Australia also leads you to the marine life at the Great Barrier Reef, the whales, seals, and dolphins off the Tasman Peninsula, and the city and harbors of sunny Sydney.

Did you know the koala sleeps an average of 20 hours a day? Why not add a 3-night Monograms vacation to Fiji to your tour of Australia and curl up in a beachside hammock yourself? Between naps, you’ll enjoy a Sigatoka River safari and the sun, fun, and genuine warmth of the islanders.

VANESSA JOURDANT

Escorting tours for more than 10 years

After a long career in the legal industry sitting behind a desk, I have found the perfect way of life: a job sharing my passion of all things travel and in between living in paradise. My home town is Port Macquarie (a few hours drive from the easternmost point of Australia) where we are touted to have not only the best weather of the country but more importantly dolphins, whales, camels, koalas, and kangaroos as our locals. Holidays are great but my aim is to provide the experiences and memories to create the trip of a lifetime!
