Australia may be like nowhere on Earth – naturally culturally and metaphorically as colorful as you anywhere you may vacation. Witness the wondrous red rock monolith of Ayers Rock, outside of Alice Springs, rising out of the sparse green vegetation covering the ochre floor of the desert Outbackm seven or eight varying shades of blue visible in the Great Barrier Reef, a kaleidoscope of colors blooming in the formal gardens of Christchurch in New Zealand or the amber glow of Sydney Harbour at sunrise.
A highlight of Ayers Rock will be a tour of the Olgas and the base of the “Rock,” where you will learn about their significance to the Aboriginal culture. The Great Barrier Reef begins in Cairn and was established as a marine park in 1975 and is a collective haven for thousands of species of sea life, as well as turtles and birds.
No Australia cruise or Australia tour vacation would be complete without discovering the landmarks of Melbourne, St. Peter’s Cathedral, the ANZAC Memorial, Victoria’s Market and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Melbourne, Australia is also home to the world’s oldest tram network.
