“Australia is such a large country and we had no idea how to start the process of planning a honeymoon that would cover all the highlights.  The Australia 2000 team took over and created us the most phenomenal, carefree honeymoon we could ask for!  They really took into account our active lifestyle and personalities to make sure we were busy rafting, scuba diving, hiking, etc. while getting to see several of the diverse ecosystems around Australia.  All in one trip we were able to see Cairns, Ayers Rock, Kangaroo Island, and Sydney!  It was a perfect mix of city and nature with no worries for us as far as logistics of transportation (air, land and sea)!  It was the best decision I could have made to put the planning of this trip in the hands of these talented professionals and I would definitely go to them again for our next adventure (New Zealand is looking pretty awesome…)!” Crystal & Dave Geiser

“We had such an amazing trip to New Zealand that we didn’t want to come home!   The food was great and the atmosphere everywhere we went was so hospitable and inviting! Everyone was very nice and gave us well wishes on our recent marriage. We definitely want to go back and see some of the places we didn’t get to this time.  Thanks again for organizing this trip for us. It will truly be something we will never forget.”  Mike & Jess Wiley

Experience Out-Of-The-Ordinary Adventures

Dine under the stars at the quietest restaurant on Earth. Sip champagne and listen to the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo as you watch a magnificent sunset over Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). When the sun has finally set, lanterns will AYQ- Sounds of Silencebe lit and a delicious gourmet barbecue served. After dinner the lights are dimmed to reveal a clear and bright, star filled sky. A resident astronomer introduces the magnificent constellations, stars and planets that make up the skies of the Southern Hemisphere.  Truly a night like no other.

Thank you from David & Adrea Benkoff

Dear Karen,

We traveled to Australia anAdrea Benkoffd New Zealand for 3 ½ weeks on a spectacular tour tailored to our tastes. We hopscotched around Australia from Sydney to Cairns, Ayers Rock to Kangaroo Island. Every stop included personalized tours, wonderful people and terrific wildlife experiences. We even spent a day in Barossa wine country sampling from four wineries.

The scenery in New Zealand was picture postcard perfect. The expDavid Benkofferiences that Karen provided in Arthur’s Pass, Queenstown and Doubtful Sound highlighted the natural beauty and provided exciting activities such as a Jet Boat Ride, overnight cruise and sheep shearing. We toured with an Aboriginal and Maori guide and experienced their lifestyle first hand.

Whether we had a private tour or joined with others, all the selected tour guides were personable, knowledgeable, and genuinely enjoyable to spend time with.

Australia 2000 made this the adventure of a lifetime.

Thanks, Adrea and David Benkoff

Thank you from The Robinet Family

Dear Karen,

We can’t thank you enough for putting together such a wonderful itinerary for us. Our trip to Australia and New Zealand was the trip of a lifetime and one that none of us will forget.

From Green Island to Ayers Rock to Sydney to Queenstown, we have memories of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen. The adventures you chose for us were terrific.  From snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef to the Sounds of Silence dinner and camel ride at sunrise in Ayer’s Rock from Bridgeclimb, New Year’s Eve festivities and sailing on Sydney Harbour in Sydney to ziplining and bungy jumping in Queenstown, New Zealand, etc., everything was fantastic!

We’re already talking of going back! We booked this trip because we wanted to do a big family trip before our oldest son goes away to college. Thank you for exceeding our expectations. Australia and New Zealand truly are spectacular places to visit. The Aussie’s & Kiwi’s are wonderful too! They really know how to enjoy life and they made sure that we enjoyed it too. Thank you to you and your staff.

Sincerely,

The Robinet Family

Australia & New Zealand Considered for New7Wonders of Nature

Surely most have heard of the 7 Wonders of the World and perhaps a lucky few have visited all of them all but did you know that there is a New7Wonders of Nature Campaign taking place right now? The New7Wonders Foundation is on a global search to recognize the 7 most wonderous natural sites as selected and voted on by the public and the winners will be announced on November 11, 2011 (yes, that’s 11-11-11).

In order to be considered sites must be clearly defined as a natural site, monument or landscape that was not created or significantly altered by humans. Of the hundreds of sites originally nominated the contest is now down to its final phase with only 28 selections left for consideration and both Australia & New Zealand remain in the running. Among the top 28 finalists are The Great Barrier Reef & Uluru in Australia and Milford Sound in New Zealand.

There are only 83 days left to vote so let your voice be heard and vote now for your favorite.

The Great Barrier Reef

The largest coral reef in the world, The Great Barrier Reef, is made up of 2500 separate reefs and stretches over 1250 miles in length and includes over 500 islands from Queenslands coast to the western edge of the Pacific Ocean. Its ecosystem supports the greatest concentration of life on this planet with its resident marine life includes 1500 species of fish, 350 different kinds of coral, 4000 species of molluscs and 10,000 species of sponges. This natural wonder also provides breeding areas for humpback whales, sea turtles and seabirds.

Uluru

Few people who visit Uluru, most commonly known as Ayers Rock, return unchanged. The rock and the surrounding land has huge spiritual significance for the Anangu Aboriginal people. It lies in Australia’s Red Center like an enormous, moody heart. At an enormous 348 meters tall and 5 ½ miles in circumference it’s hard to believe that more than two thirds of the rock remains hidden beneath the ground. Yet at its massive feet the icy-green and grey vegetation offer a refuge for wildlife. Arraying itself in a multiplicity of hues from black to purple, blue to brown, orange and red throughout various times of day and weather, Uluru’s sheer majesty outshines even the brilliant sunset.

Milford Sound

Grand, brooding, serene and wild, Milford Sound, located within Fiordland National Park on New Zealand’s South Island,  draws visitors from all over the globe to cruise its length. Luxuriant rainforest clings to sheer rock walls washed with waterfalls line the shores of the sound and in the foreground stands Mitre Peak, a majestic presence dominating the skyline. On any given day you are likely to see dolphins and rare penguins or perhaps even seals sunbathing on the rocky shores.
