We took a quick poll to find out what first comes to mind when someone hears Australia. The top results, listed below, were all over the board and ever so interesting:
- Sydney Opera House
- Australian outback hats or Akubras
- Kangaroos (yes, honestly, people mentioned kangaroos)
- The Great Barrier Reef (note to all, do you realize the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest single structure made from living organisms?)
- Sheep Farmers
- The Olympics
So, of all of those things, guess which one we want to take a look at today? How about the part that everyone left out: Tropical North Queensland. Yes, yes, all of these other things are “so Australia” but how about throwing out the norm and embracing something you didn’t even know existed? Look, spend a few days taking in the crocodiles, the Opera House, the site of the 2000 Summer Olympics, eat a little Vegemite and then dash off to Tropical North Queensland for a vacation down under that will both awe and relax you. Tropical North Queensland is where the rain-forest meets the reef; the best of BOTH worlds? Why would you not want to go?
Journeys Down Under specializes in the vacation escape to the land of spa treatments which use Aboriginal techniques, pristine environs, eco-friendly retreats and so much more. Walk along white and we mean WHITE sands of Coconut Beach on your way to a day of exploration via canoe. And if you are really adventurous, take on the magical Heron Island and spend a few days and nights literally in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. This is your opportunity to be a part of nature’s version of heaven.
