Beaches & Reefs from Sydney to Cairns on Feb. 19th

17 Nov 2011 Mariska asked


Who else is going on this tour? And where are you from? Are you travelling alone or with (boy/girl)friend? Are travelling before and/or after? Have you been travelling with Contiki before? Would be really nice to get in contact with some other travellers on the tour!!!

I'm Mariska, 23 years old from The Netherlands. Will be travelling alone for in total 3,5 weeks. First I will go to Hong Kong before arriving in Australia, where I will meet up with friends in Melbourne. I will arrive in Sydney on the 17th before the tour starts on the 19th. Maybe we can hang out with a few in Sydney already!?!? Oh it will be my first Contiki tour, so I hope it's true about what they: "once done a Contiki tour, you will do another one"

    Hey that’s great, I think it’s awesome Aussies do the tours in their own country! Join our facebook group! :)

    I think I’m on this one…How’s it going mates! I’m Adam from New York and this will be my 3rd Contiki. Sept 2010 was European Explorer… 35 days, July 2011 Eastern Escapade in the States… 13 days. I’ll be in Sydney in the evening of Feb 17 and staying an extra 5 days in Australia when the tour ends…is anyone doing the Whit Sunday sailing?

    Hi, I am also thinking of doing this tour.
    I have not done a Contiki tour before and I have not been to Australia before.
    I am from the UK
    I travelled round West USA earlier this year via car from San Fran to LA to Vegas which was a great experience.
    As I have never been to Aus before I thought that going with Contiki would be a great experience especially as I will be travelling solo.
    I am hoping to stay longer afterwards to travel on my own, and maybe work for a bit if I like Aus, which I hope happens.
    Do you know how many people are expected on this trip?
    There is a lot of departure dates in Jan, but this is too soon, so as this is the only one in Feb, I am working towards this date
