Playa del Rey, California
To me, Australia is my second home! I am proud to be certified as an Aussie Specialist, and I look forward to every visit to this great Land Down Under. My wife and I especially enjoy experiencing this magnificent destination on cruises and excursions. On a recent cruise, we customized our shore excursions to include wineries in Southwest and South Australia, Kangaroo Island, the Barossa Valley, Victoria and Sydney. We've also cruised from New Zealand to Western Australia with a special focus on Tasmania, Melbourne and Sydney. Also, we've sailed north from Sydney through the Great Barrier Reef - a mind-boggling experience. I treasure my time getting to know the wonderful people, learning the history and experiencing first-hand the many different species of wildlife - that live nowhere else on earth. I have excellent local contacts who have contributed to my extensive knowledge and understanding of all that is here for one to enjoy. Examples of the variety of itineraries I can arrange -besides cruises and Food & Wine Experiences, include a Midnight Photo Safari outside of Sydney and visits to some of Perth's 50 yacht clubs.
Destinations worth a few days exploration include The Outback, the Great Barrier Reef, the Pinnacles and the Kimberley's. Australia is about the same size as the United States, so one visit should be your first of many! I want you, too, to consider Australia your second home!
