2023 Season

Great Sights of Australia with the Ningaloo Reef


tour: PGE3 16 Day Tour from Brisbane to Perth
Laugh and the kookaburras laugh with you. Cry and the kookaburras still laugh. That’s the beauty of a journey to happy-go-lucky Australia where sunny days are accentuated by its even sunnier inhabitants. Koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and wombats are among the many locals eager to greet you on this breezy tour of Australia. With visits to four wondrous waterfront cities, you’ll easily see why the world gushes about the land Down Under. Go behind the scenes at Brisbane’s Australia Zoo, snorkel above the colorful coral at the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Cairns, and devour the panoramic scenery and a delicious lunch at the iconic Sydney Opera House. With two free days in eclectic Melbourne, you can also gobble up all the goodies this hipster city and surrounding areas have to offer. Perhaps take in the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island or chill with a nice chardonnay at a Yarra Valley winery.

Some of the friendliest “locals” you’ll ever meet are just off the west coast of Australia. Add a 4-day Monograms vacation to the Ningaloo Reef to your tour of Australia for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of swimming alongside the gentle whale sharks or humpback whales.

Escorting tours for more than 20 years
I have been a Tour Director for over 20 years and I love showcasing the South Pacific region to so many like-minded passionate and adventurous travelers like myself. Family is a very important aspect of my life and I spend a lot of time introducing world adventure travel to my own two children. I live in Cairns, the gateway to two world heritage listed UNESCO Sites which are a must do when you visit my home town. Where the Rainforest meets the Reef is an unforgettable experience, one that shouldn't be missed when visiting Far North Queensland.
