Amazing time in Australia

We were only there for 5 days on our way to New Zealand but Southern Crossings made our time in Australia unforgettable. From top notch accommodations and activities to smooth transfers, Southern Crossings made our trip carefree and we know we want to return to this beautiful country.

This was actually Australia not New Zealand. The seaplane ride to and luch at Cottage Point was terrific with a beautiful reide back to Sydney. The next day's trip to the Blue Mountains was also wonderful including the lunch at Echoes.

We planned most of our 20 day trip to Australia, but the highlight of the whole trip was one of her arrangements, a visit to Kangaroo Island. Both the guide and the B&B were superb. She also encouraged us to go Platinum on the Ghan which we are glad we did.

We really enjoyed the portion of our trip that came under this providers purview. Southern Crossing had us booked into Longitude 131 where we had a most enjoyable experience at Uluru! The accommodations were magnificent, and the food was superb! Our tours were professionally executed with courteous, knowledgeable and fun guides. Our experience with Southern Crossings was exemplary.

All arrangements were what we wanted and as advertised. Socible and knowledgeable tour guides enhanced the trip. Our desired schedule required us to leave Australia early on Australia Day but it would have been fun to party with them.

Australia vacation

Put together a four week itinerary for eastern Australian. Nice balance of important sites and leisure time. Great selection of hotels. The only real negative was late notification of a planned Segway tour. Hard to tell whose fault that was as we were unaware of when the Segway provider actually closed operations. Overall we had a great time.
