We worked with Shelley from the travel company to flesh out the itinerary for our trip to Australia. She did a really fine job of proposing several side tours and adapting her proposal to our interests. The nice thing about going through Zicasso was that we could compare different agencies and select the one that seemed to best meet our needs. We were pleased that Shelley not only came up with a proposal to our liking but continued to follow through with us throughout the months leading up to the actual trip.
We generally prefer experiencing natural beauty over cities, and there were many natural wonders to take in during our three weeks in Australia. Among the most enjoyable experiences were: (a) an overnight Great Ocean Road tour from Melbourne, which included striking geological formations along the coast as well as a rain forest walk; (b) a day trip to Phillip Island, including the famous "Penguin Parade" along with stops to see a sheep-shearing demonstration and a chance to hand feed tame kangaroos and wallabies; (c) stays in Freycinet and Cradle Mountain National Parks in Tasmania, which were not only beautiful but included opportunities to see Tasmanian Devils, quolls, and other exotic animals up close; (d) snorkeling excursion via sailboat from Port Douglas to the Great Barrier Reef; and (e) a tour of the Sydney Opera House.
Spend at least a week in Tasmania and no more than four nights in Sydney.
