GLOBUS 2021: Australian Safari with the Ningaloo Reef (PLE2)
25 Day Tour from Brisbane to Perth
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.Some of the friendliest 'locals' you'll ever meet are just off the west coast of Australia. Add a 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.
