We had a spectacular trip to Australia in August, 2017 (family of 4, kids 9-11). Destinations were Sydney (with side trip to the Blue Mountains), Uluru/Ayers Rock, Cairns/Port Douglas and Brisbane. The travel agent was easy to work with and very flexible to our needs. Transportation was prompt and efficient. The travel agent was helpful in changing the times of some of our taxis as well. Great mix of scheduled tours and free time. Hotels were great and large! We had read some questionable reviews online about one of the hotels but, after speaking with the travel agent, we stuck with it and it was fantastic! We shouldn't have worried--the agents know what they are talking about. The tours arranged were excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer!
The overnight at Taronga Zoo in Sydney was amazing! A little bit cool in August in the tents, so dress warmly, but so much fun for the whole family and amazing views.
Camel ride to dinner/Field of Lights at Uluru was spectacular.
Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef and koalas in Port Douglas.
The Blue Mountain tour was a bit long for the kids. They enjoyed the zoo that we went to where we could pet kangaroo and wallabies, but the rest of the trip was largely sitting in a bus and sightseeing.
Our flight out of Sydney was the day after the zoo trip, so we missed some of the activities scheduled for the morning/day at the zoo. Based on availability, though, there was not really another way to arrange it.
