We flew via Singapore to Perth in Australia and spent a few days visiting the Botanical Gardens, the Maritime Museum in Freemantle and Yanchep Wildlife Park. We then took a 3-hour flight to Darwin in the north of Australia to view the aborigine rock paintings, the scenery and also the wildlife of Kakado National Park. We then flew to Alice Springs to see the original Telegraph Office, the Flying Doctor Service and the School of the Air. Then by road to Ayers Rock walk in The Olgas and then Ayers Rock itself at both sunrise and sunset. Then after a flight to Cairns, we took the aerial cable-car to Kuranda in the rainforest before returning by the Kuranda railway. We also went to Normandy Island to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. After flying to Sydney we visited Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. We went to the Blue Mountains where we descended into the valley on the funicular railway to walk in the rainforest returning by cable-car. Then a long coach journey, first to Canberra the capital city to see the parliament building, the museum and war memorial and then on to Melbourne and Phillip Island to see the penguins coming ashore. Then a long drive to the Barossa Valley for lunch and wine tasting at the Jacobs Creek Vineyard before finally ending our tour in Adelaide. From there we flew on to New Zealand.
