Frontier Travel Camp, Luxury Special Needs Tours, will travel to Australia in 2017. We cater to individuals with Autism, Asperger’s, Developmental Disabilities, and other special needs.
Our 20th Anniversary trip will culminate with 17 days touring the south and eastern coasts of Australia. On July 14th, travelers will fly to LA for about 30 hours of California dreamin’. We’ll get to rest up and see some sights before boarding our flight to Melbourne, Australia on the night of July 15th. Upon arrival we’ll rest up and begin to acclimate to the new time zone in the “land down under” preparing for a whirlwind of travel as we visit the states of Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland.
Melbourne is a beautiful and vibrant city known for its excellent food, great shopping, and it’s many historical sights. And just a short drive away is Port Campbell National Park which is home to the Great Ocean Road where you’ll find the 12 Apostles (above), the London Arch, and many other fantastic natural formations. We’ll also visit Bells Beach, and Great Ostway National Park.
From Melbourne, we’ll fly to Brisbane and stay in the eastern city called Gold Coast. This metropolitan paradise is near to surfer meccas, amusement parks, and authentic “outback” experiences like the Australian Outback Spectacular where you can hold koalas and other typical Australian animals. We’ll also be a short drive away from the beautiful Byron Bay. We’ll be able to enjoy wonderful city life, relaxing beaches, and unique wildlife.
Finally, we’ll travel by land down the coast to the great city of Sydney. We’ll stay in the outskirts of town so that we can day trip all over the region. We’ll drive to the Blue Mountains to visit Katoomba, the Three Sisters and Wentworth Falls. In Sydney we’ll visit the Opera House (on the cover), the famous Bondi Beach, Darling Harbor, the Rocks shopping and restaurant districts, North Head Sanctuary, and so much more.
Our days will be nonstop filled with authentic Aussie experiences. From aboriginal arts & culture to typical city life, you can’t miss this truly once in a lifetime experience!!
