Journeys : August September 2009
Time to take Geikie Gorge an Australian break Uluru D id you know that Australians have a massive 123 million days of stockpiled annual leave? Believe it or not, it makes us the third most holidaydeprived nation – one in four full-time employees has accumulated 25 days or more annual leave. So with time not an issue, and AAT Kings’ amazing tours and travel choices around Australia, now’s the moment to take some well-deserved leave. AAT Kings has partnered with Tourism Australia’s ‘No Leave, No Life’ campaign, which gives you the tools and information you need to get away from the 9 to 5 and enjoy a great Australian holiday. From the Aboriginal Dreamtime to vibrant 21st century cities, from the Red Centre to our mountains and magnificent coastlines, Australia’s rich history and spectacular landscapes offer a multitude of experiences and opportunities for a holiday in our own backyard. North, south, east or west, there are wonderful things to see and do. In the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park you’ll discover ancient Aboriginal rock art, meet local Aboriginal people and visit their sacred land. AAT Kings will take you in search of saltwater crocodiles as you cruise along the famous Yellow Water Billabong and explore the breathtaking Litchfield National Park. Near Alice Springs you can view sunset at Uluru and explore the mighty Kings Canyon and Kata Tjuta. Litchfield Florence Falls Port Arthur In West Australia, visit the Bungle Bungles and see dolphins up-close; stroll along topical Cable Beach and see the kaleidoscope of colours as spring wildflowers burst into bloom. In South Australia, visit the beautiful Barossa Valley for some wine tasting and scenery. Take a trip to Queensland to cruise the Great Barrier Reef and see sensational underwater life, wander through the tropical rainforest of the Daintree and relax on the brilliant white sandy beaches of the Whitsundays. On our own island, come face to face with the Tasmanian devil, walk to a rainforest waterfall in the Mt Field National Park, explore the rugged wilderness of the West Coast, learn the stories of the convict past at Port Arthur and climb to the alpine gardens of Cradle Mountain. AAT Kings offers travellers freedom and flexibility with a wide range of premium and low-cost escorted tours, short breaks, small-group adventures, Kings Canyon camping adventures and day tour programs, so there’s a holiday to suit every traveller’s needs.
