We had a wonderful holiday in Australia. My requirements were a) Uluru b) Dive in Great Barrier Reef (GBR) c) See koalas in the wild and d) the Daintree Forest.
Our travel agent helped us with finding the fantastic accommodation for us in Daintree and GBR and arranging all the land transport. It was unfortunate that we went to Australia in June when Southern Ocean Lodge in Kangaroo Island (KI) was closed for renovations but I found alternative accommodation in KI and our agent organised and wonderful local tour for us and also helped us find great food for dinner. The touring company Exceptional KI that she introduced was extremely professional too and the guide went beyond the call of duty to help us find a drone that went missing and even couriered it to us at our last stop in Lizard Island. (Choosing a resort in GBR was tough as there are so many good ones to choose from but I really do feel Lizard is the best! )
Very grateful to our travel agent for accommodating too our very many last minute changes when my sister and her family decided to join us for part of the trip. And I added in an extra stop to see my cousin in Adelaide. I was a bit apprehensive about so many last minute changes but she took it all in her stride and executed it flawlessly. Also loved the beautiful book they did for us of the places we visited.
Thank you to our agent and her company for the wonderful holiday.
Hiking in Uluru was surreal.
Seeing the dive instructor feed codfish in GBR.
Swimming / Snorkelling with the sea turtles in GBR
Wonderful food in KI and Lizard Island
Had a wonderful guide in Daintree - he knew so much and we also got to see a Cassowary.
Ensure that Southern Ocean Lodge is open for our KI trip. Everything else was perfect.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
Thank you for your feedback – I understand your disappointment about not being able to stay at Southern Ocean Lodge. Unfortunately your travel dates did clash with their annual closure for soft refurbishment. I am so pleased though that you loved the other regions you visited (as well as the touring and dining options for Kangaroo Island) and that we were able to assist with finding the drone and misplaced phone at your lodge. It was also great to hear from you during your Australian travels and to hear that you loved the Australian guides I selected for you during your journey.
I’d love to assist you should you return to Australia and we can most definitely work on a re-visit to Kangaroo Island with Southern Ocean Lodge.
