Overview

Great Sights of Australia with the Outback

Laugh and the kookaburras laugh with you. Cry and the kookaburras still laugh. That’s the beauty of a journey to happy-go-lucky Australia where sunny days are accentuated by its even sunnier inhabitants. Koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and wombats are among the many locals eager to greet you on this breezy tour of Australia. With visits to four wondrous waterfront cities, you’ll easily see why the world gushes about the land Down Under. Go behind the scenes at Brisbane’s Australia Zoo, snorkel above the colorful coral at the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Cairns, and devour the panoramic scenery and a delicious lunch at the iconic Sydney Opera House. With two free days in eclectic Melbourne, you can also gobble up all the goodies this hipster city and surrounding areas have to offer. Perhaps take in the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island or chill with a nice chardonnay at a Yarra Valley winery.

See all the colors of the Australian rainbow by adding a 3-day Monograms vacation to its mystical Red Center. You won’t see a sunrise or sunset as inspiring as the rays dancing across the face of Ayers Rock or the equally impressive Kata Tjuta.
