Stunning natural attractions, vibrant cities, remote regions, and friendly people…this is Australia, and on this Australia tour—with Fiji—you’ll experience all of this and more. Start in Melbourne, end in Nadi, Fiji, and overnight along the way in Alice Springs, Uluru (Ayers Rock), Cairns, and Sydney.
It would take a lifetime to explore all of Australia so we’ve deliberately selected the best highlights of this amazing and wonderful destination. Because we know there is so much to see in each location, we’ve designed this trip so that you have a lot of free time to make your own choices as to what you want to experience with your Sisters. There will be many optional activities for you to choose from, and we want this trip to be everything you dreamed it would be. In fact, we haven’t even boxed you into a scheduled breakfast every morning – we’re going to provide you with a gift card so that you can choose where and what you’d like to eat!
From the remote Outback to the tropical Great Barrier Reef to the Coral Coast, we’ve created this Australia and Fiji tour exclusively for The Sisterhood! Join us for fun, laughs, and, most of all….the joy of Sisterhood!
