    This is an active trip with most activities being easy to moderate. Hikes include a 30-minute walk through the rainforest and hiking around parts of the base of Ayer's Rock and the Mala Gorge at the Olgas. These hikes are all on unpaved trails and uneven terrain with minimal uphill. Temperatures may be hot during summer months (December-April), particularly in the desert, so be prepared with cool clothes, hats and water. During winter months (May-November), the weather can be very cold, so it is important to dress in layers.


    You will also have the opportunity to swim, snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, sea-kayak and explore a number of areas by foot. While none of the trip's highlights are strenuous, taken together, the vacation is a physically active experience.

    While we welcome children ages 4 and up on our Australia adventure, we recommend that children be at least 7 years old at the time of travel. We base this on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, the length and pace of the vacation, the potential for extreme temperatures in summer months (December-April), and amount of physical activity involved (e.g., hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking). Because each child is different, call a Vacationista at (800) 543-0865 to discuss whether this is the right vacation for your kids.

    Typically, breakfast is served buffet-style. Lunches and dinners usually include a variety of options including fish, meat, and pasta or rice entrées along with vegetables, salad, cheese, desserts and fruit. While the menus have been planned to give you a taste of typical Australian cuisine, they also include familiar American fare. Some lunches and dinners are served buffet style while others offer a limited-choice menu. Because we dine as a group, we regret that á la carte menu choices are not available. Children-friendly options are available at all meals. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods.

    In order to give you and your family a chance to dine by yourselves, we've scheduled a few on-your-own meals throughout the vacation. These are planned in towns or cities, where you will have plenty of options available.

    If you have any questions or concerns about dining at any time during your vacation, your Adventure Guides will be happy to assist you.

    We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.
