[ Please contact Travel Downunder for current Special Packages ]

Customised bookings to Australia are our specialty. We do not limit you to pre-set tours or packages. What you see here is only a sample of what we can do for you. We are able to offer you great discounted airfares to all areas of Australia, plus selected car rentals, motor home packages, city stays, coach tours, and so much more.

Discount Airfares
Fares change too frequently to post here. For current prices contact us at Travel Downunder where we will be pleased to quote you the very best fares of the day.

Please include dates of travel, destination and origin cities, length of stay, whether travellers are adults, seniors, children. We will give you our lowest quote. If you want a business or first class quote, let us know.

Sydney and other Hotel/Apartment Packages - other cities also available
Sydney hotel plus Blue Mountains excursion is one example of the type of package we can customise for you. Brisbane hotel and Lone Pine Koala Reserve, Adelaide and Barossa Valley package are others. Apartments are comparably priced with hotels and at times more suitable. We offer apartment stays in all areas.

Let us know what you want.

The Great Barrier Reef
Australia's Great Barrier Reef is big enough to see from the moon, and is sprinkled with hundreds of coral and rainforest islands. Many are unique wildlife havens.

We can suggest day trips, stays at island resorts, and the best ways to experience the Reef. Snorkeling, reef viewing from a semi-submersible vessel, and live aboard diving are several options.

Remember, we have personally visited all of these places, and are able to offer first-hand information.

Bird Watching
Parrots by the flock, noisy kookaburras, colourful honeyeaters, and tiny wrens, Australia's birdlife is spectacular. We can help you plan a birdwatching trip with local experts. Or we can tell you how to go on your own.

Ask us for bird lists from the areas we recommend.

Outback and Adventure Travel
Uluru (Ayers Rock) with an aboriginal guide, white-water rafting, small group safari through the Kimberleys, sea kayaking, horse riding in Victoria's Alps are just some of the adventure trips awaiting you.

Let us plan your Walkabout.

Bed & Breakfast Tours
Travel Downunder has inspected over a hundred bed and breakfasts in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria. B&Bs are great if you want to meet Australians in their own homes, learn about their way of living, and taste the local food.

We have many self drive Bed and Breakfast suggestions, but can customise a trip to suit you.

Rail Travel
Ride the Indian Pacific across The Long Straight to Perth, the legendary Ghan to Alice Springs and Darwin, or the Queenslander up the coast to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.

Train travel is popular with the locals as well as overseas visitors, so it is important to book ahead.

Travel Downunder has information and special rates on these and other Train Journeys of Australia.

We offer cruises aboard the MV Reef Endeavour, a first class 75-cabin cruise ship purpose-built for the Great Barrier Reef.

Cruise the Sub Antarctic Islands of Australia and New Zealand.

Ask us about other Australia and New Zealand cruises.

Barossa Valley, Hunter Valley, And Other Wine Tours
We know all about the world-renowned Barossa and Hunter Valleys, but can also send you to the Margaret River and other lesser known and boutique wine producing areas.

Remember, we have personally visited these areas.

Rainforest Resorts
O'Reillys and Binna Burra are two of the best. They are in the MacLeay-McPherson where two major ecosystems overlap.

But we know others in the Queensland-New South Wales Border Ranges and the Tropical North.

Crocodile spotting in Kakadu, whale watching in Hervey Bay, turtle sighting on a reef island, travel with a trained biologist in Tasmania, wildflower displays in Western Australia, Kangaroo Island wildlife, we know the right seasons and where to go.

Bushwalking (Hiking & Backpacking)
Cradle Mountain in Tasmania, Snowy and Blue Mountains in New South Wales, and the Queensland-New South Wales Border Ranges have everything from wilderness to day hikes.

We can arrange for guides or outfitters with all the gear, or advise you on how to go on your own.

Beach Resorts
Powder white sand and aquamarine water are the hallmarks of Australian beaches. The typical Aussie spends weekends, vacations, and any spare time at the coast.

Accommodation ranges from camping to deluxe. Self-contained apartments are good, particularly for longer stays.

Travel Downunder's owner - Wendy Schatz - grew up near Queensland's Gold and Sunshine Coasts and spends part of every year walking the sun-drenched beaches. So ask Wendy to book that special getaway for you.

Barramundi in the tropics, Marlin at sea, and Trout in Tasmania make Australia a mecca for fishermen.

Ask us about fishing seasons, where to fish for what, and how to get there.

Fly-Drive Packages
Save money with an airfare and car or motorhome rental package.

Always ask us for current prices.

Coach Tours

Independent Coach Tours

If you prefer a tour, but would like the flexibility of deciding where you want to go, you can take locally hosted and escorted trips, or combine independent travel with one or more of these tours.

Travel Downunder organises independent tours with our wholesaler in Australia for lower currency rates and a contact in Australia to help you with any last minute changes or additions.

Escorted Coach Tours
On a first visit you might prefer to be with a group escorted by knowledgeable and helpful guides. We know the tour operators and we sell a range of escorted tour programs, again taking advantage of local exchange rates.

We will be happy to discuss options. Let us know if you would like a brochure.
