Experience Perth for a great holiday as the area has bustling markets, inner city parks, outdoor dining
and amazing marine experiences.

Perth is situated beside the widest stretch of the meandering Swan River and the locals enjoy 3000
hours of sunshine a year, as it is Australia’s sunniest capital city. While in Perth we will explore Kings
Park, take a Swan River Scenic Cruise, and visit Fremantle and the historic buildings in the port. We
will experience the Perth Hop on Hop off buses for which the city is famous.

Echuca is a fascinating place to visit and is steeped in the history of the great Murray River. The town
has shops that have kept the historical look and feel.

We will enjoy a peaceful river cruise on one of the paddle steamers and take in the many points of
historical interest on the banks of the Murray. After our cruise we will enjoy a leisurely walk along the
historic wharf, which provides a valuable insight into how the Port operated in its heyday.

No trip to Echuca is complete without a visit to the Great Aussie Beer Shed. The shed is a museum
crammed full of beer and brewing history and houses over 16,000 beer cans from Australia and around
the world. There are also many other interesting pieces of equipment and memorabilia associated with
Australian beer and brewing history.

We will also visit the National Holden Museum, which contains 40 vehicles making it Australia’s
largest collection of Holden cars. The museum also has rare film footage of the history of the Holden,
an interesting photographic exhibition and a great souvenir shop.

Phillip Island

During our Phillip Island holiday, we will see handmade chocolates being made at the chocolate
factory and we will enjoy some of the delicious products. We will visit the Koala Conservation Centre
for an up close and personal experience with the koalas in their natural habitat and enjoy the
spectacular scenery of the area.

The main highlight of the holiday will be a visit to the one of Australia’s most popular tourist
attractions, the Phillip Island Nature Park. Here we will be able to enjoy the wonder of the evening
penguin parade, as the penguins emerge from the ocean to find their way to their burrows. We will be
literally only a couple of metres away from these busy little creatures, as they scurry underneath the
viewing board walk on their homeward journey. This nightly ritual attracts hundreds of people each
time and it is the experience of a life time.
