This journey was the greatest we ever did on our own, just the two of us - my husband and I. We were well prepared and everything went like planned.

Australia is probably one of the most exotic and fascinating travel destinations at all - for one thing because of its secluded location in the southern hemisphere of our planet and for another because of the beauty and peculiarity of its nature. We dipped into the world of Down Under with its exotic vegetation and wildlife, experienced luxuriant, ancient, tropical and subtropical rainforests, the fascinating underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef, miles long dreamlike beaches, the infinite expanse of the outback in the heart of the continent with red sandy deserts, steppes and savannahs, but also fascinating metropolises, such as Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Many regions are UNESCO World Heritage sites and habitats for domestic species, which could develop and survive in the seclusion of this smallest continent on earth. Above all one can still experience untouched nature and watch animals in their natural surroundings. Of the approximately 20 million inhabitants of Australia, the majority live in the attractive metropolises like Sydney, Melbourne Brisbane and Perth, while large areas, particularly in the desert-like outback, are unpopulated..Koalas at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Goldcoast

The likeable Aussies are great hosts and do everything, to spoil their guests, not just with good international cooking, but with a multitude of tours and excursions as well as sport and entertainment for everyone, while the Aborigines, mainly in the National Parks, act as guides and, in special performances, convey vivid impressions of their cultural heritage. The Didgeridoo is omnipresent and its mystic sound evokes the spirit of ancient times.

A special highlight of our journey however was the stay with our Australian friends, who had visited us in Germany in 2001. They were wonderful host and guides and enriched our trip with unforgettable beautiful and interesting experiences - many thanks, Peter and Joy!
