A lot of people don’t realize just how big Australia is. Did you know that Australia is almost as great as that of the <a href="/contikipedia/articles/usa">United States of America</a> (excluding Alaska and Texas), almost one and a half times the size of <a href="/contikipedia/articles/europe">Europe</a> (excluding the former <span class="caps">USSR</span>) and 32 times greater than the United Kingdom. The Great Barrier Reef alone is the same size as the UK.</p> <p>On long coach days, your Tour Manager will keep you entertained. There is always music, DVD&#8217;s, interesting commentary and the occasional game. This will definitely help an 8 hour travel day pass quicker than if you were traveling by yourself.</p>
