Australia Specialist

My experiences were fabulous and there is so much more to see. Australia being about the same size as the U.S., it takes several trips to see all of Australia. I spent time in the Top End and Darwin. Darwin has a very compact downtown area, good for walking around and visiting museums as well as shopping. After a short one hour flight, we arrived at Davidson's Arnhemland Safaris at Mt. Borradaile, to the east of Kakadu National Park. This is a registered aboriginal sacred site with rock art paintings. It was very fascinating to bushwalk and to see some of the thousands of year old paintings on the rocks and hear about the dream time. From here a 20 minute flight took us to Bamarru Plains, to the west of Kakadu National Park. Bamarru Plains is a water buffalo station on a flood plain. We took airboats out on the flood plains to see salt water crocs, water buffalo, geese and birds. When the motor is shut off, all you can hear is the nature. We also saw wallabies and hundreds of cockatoos. They offer fishing, photography and pure relaxation. What an unbelievable trip! Be sure to ask me about it.

Best Travel Agent
Very Professional, Easy to work with, close to home that I can stop by with any questions.. Knows what is going on with my travels and keeps us updated with any changes...
When we had to cancel our cruise in 2014 due to a emergency medical situation, she was on top of things, making it easy to make other arrangements which was a very big help...When we rebooked the following year, she was right there making the arrangements for us. We enjoy working with her and will continue to do so.....
