ACROSS THE TASMAN SEA LIES AUSTRALIA

...THE LAND OF THE UNEXPECTED! Unique unto itself, Australia is filled with rare and exciting wildlife. You’ll enjoy the face-to-face experience with Kangaroos and Koalas …or perhaps the opportunity to hold a wombat and laugh at the antics of the ‘thieving’ Kookaburras. Exotic and spectacular are the Great Barrier Reef and the glittering coral islands that rise above the sea. The harbors are rich with a wealth of underwater creatures …the lands are painted with exotic flowers and peculiar animals. There is no land like the one which unfolds before your very eyes.

"Wonderful scenery, outstanding itinerary and trip logbook. Great entertainment and we will always remember Fantasy's wagonmasters on our New Zealand and Australia trip."

Win & Jan De Poorter, Wetumpka, AL

--

“The experience of climbing to the top of the bridge in Sydney, Australia was a life changing moment for me because I was terrified of heights. The view was so breathtaking that after the first few moments I forgot my fear and opened my senses to the awesome sight of the gorgeous harbor dominated by the Opera House. By the way, heights never bothered me again!"

Steven Krauss,
West Palm Beach, FL
