Aussie Trio Tour
Your exclusive, small group tour is a very personal experience as you travel in luxurious transportation providing free Wi-Fi as well as chilled water and snacks making for the best comfort possible. Experience three different Australian experiences all in the one day as you are entertained with an Indigenous experience -- a talk by an Aboriginal elder, watch boomerang throwing and play a didgeridoo. Then you will visit an award-winning winery and indulge in a delicious two-course lunch before finally getting up-close and personal with iconic Australian wildlife.
Depart from the cruise terminal area and set off for your full-day educational induction into all things Australia. Your first stop will be at Spirits of the Red Sand for an Indigenous experience and Devonshire tea. Spirits of the Red Sand is an Aboriginal experience that embodies a dream more than 20 years in the making. This is the meeting of two cultures, Maori and Aboriginal, both with incredible similarities and a deep mutual respect. While Spirits of the Red Sand differs from Tamaki Maori Village in many ways, the essence is the same -- to create respect and admiration for a culture through storytelling, to leave people from all over the world with unforgettable memories and to help local indigenous people thrive through sustainable work and career development.
Continue from here and make your way to the Sirromet Winery for a tour of the property, wine tasting and your mouth-watering two-course lunch at the signature restaurant Lurleen's. Sirromet is a family owned and run winery situated at picturesque Mount Cotton, just a short drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Sirromet's state of the art facilities offers food and wine lovers the ultimate winery experience.
Next, your adventure continues to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, here you can get up-close and personal with some Australian wildlife. This sanctuary is home to 100 different species of Australian native wildlife including many types of birds, monitors, wombats, Tasmanian devils, kangaroo and of course, the ever-cuddly koala.
Once your day draws to a close, you will return to the pier area and your ship with a lifetime of memories made on this very special day in Brisbane getting a taste of all things Australian.
