"Australia, my homeland…..  What a country I was born in, it is an amazing place.   It is always so fun planning a vacation to Australia and helping our customers have an unforgettable trip.  Everyone’s wishes are different and Australia offers it all, you can one weekend be snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, hiking the next in the Red Centre, or self-driving around Tasmania with its 19 national parks, wine touring in Sydney and swimming with whale sharks in Broome.  You can do it all here in this amazing land."
