OzAdventures.co.uk again provides travel-orientated students with a plethora of new touring packages and adventure breaks on their gap year Australia experience as we head into the spring months.
When it comes to students broadening their horizons and accumulating as many worldly experiences as they can while they are young, Australia represents the perfect destination in every sense with a series of dramatic landscapes and was rightfully recognised by last years British Travel Awards by claiming the coveted Best Country to Visit gong.
Whether students are taking a year out or simply want to globetrot before they embark on an exciting period of their life at university, it is understandable that monetary issues play a substantial part in the decision making process when planning adventure tours in Australia.
Thankfully, OzAdventures provides a vast number of new competitive deals no matter what the taste. For example, the self-confessed small & personal group adventure tours such as the 14-day Cairns to Sydney explorer taking in all of the beauty of the Queensland and New South Wales coast for £1534 per person or the £152 per person point to point pass on Australias Greyhound bus, which is perfect for those gap year students who have a clear idea of cities they wish to visit Down Under.
Of course, with every gap year comes a cocktail of nerves and anticipation and OzAdventures looks to eradicate the potential hassle and frustrations by making it as easy as possible for students to acclimatise to their new-found surroundings.
Arrival packages, which start at £229 per person, are perfect for those students who would admit to being a little disorganised. But this is no bad thing when packages include everything and more, such as an airport greeting, accommodation, tax registration, Medicare, opening a back account and securing employment staple factors to consider before embarking on flights to Australia with stopovers.
With so many things to see and do in Australia, such as going outback on a cultural journey to the Red Centre and Ayers Rock, to surfing off the modern cityscapes of the Gold Coast, there is something for all persuasions and if students wish to dip their toe into a bit of everything during their stay, the £1072 10-day Kakadu & Uluru safari is just the adventure to book.
Comprising the sand swept outback of Alice Springs and the multicultural modern hub of Darwin all on one trip, photography enthusiasts are certainly in for a treat.
