Goway Travel and Qantas have teamed up to help agents sell the icons of Australia, along with a few local ‘must-do’ experiences
The experts in travel Downunder for over 45 years, Goway has created six distinct packages in partnership with Qantas Airways to unlock Australia’s most memorable sights, along with some of its hidden corners. Qantas has the most flights to Australia departing each week from the Americas, so going Downunder has never been easier.
The Great Barrier Reef, Wildlife, and Culture Escape begins with an idyllic stay on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays, before immersing Globetrotters in the cultural hotspots of Melbourne and Adelaide. Meanwhile, the Urban Aussie Beach Escape swaps Adelaide out for Sydney, with Whitsundays accommodation at Airlie Beach rather than on Hamilton Island. Either package gives Globetrotters access to the Great Barrier Reef. Of course, those wanting to enjoy both Sydney and Hamilton Island can opt for the Islands, Reef and Aussie Icons package.
For a more upscale experience, the Lux Boutique Australia Retreat takes guests to quaila, one of the most exclusive eco-resorts in the Whitsundays, before taking them to experience beautiful Sydney, followed by Ayers Rock. Travellers on a budget can follow a similar itinerary with simpler accommodations on the Sydney, Great Barrier Reef and Rock Escape. Globetrotters who’d prefer to try Australia’s famous coffee and wine, or perhaps even spot a Tasmanian devil, might prefer the Aussie Southern Explorer, enjoying Melbourne, historic Hobart, and Adelaide in detail.
Australia’s most remote destinations aren’t left out. The Wonders of Western Australia is a two-week trip all about the great south west. A round-trip self-drive from Perth, it explores the Margaret River wine region, and takes Globetrotters to natural wonders like Pink Lake and Wave Rock. The Coast to Coast and Red Centre explorer starts in Melbourne, before taking Globetrotters to Ayers Rock and Perth. Those interested in Australia’s Aboriginal history might prefer the Outback and Indigenous Adventure, which combines short stops in Melbourne and Sydney with Outback travels throughout the Northern Territory.
If none of these packages appeal (!), there’s always the Great Barrier Reef and GO! package, which starts in the Whitsundays for some Great Barrier Reef time, before letting Globetrotters explore the parts of the country according to their own interests. With Australia’s largest domestic network, Qantas makes crossing Australia’s vast distances quick, easy, and comfortable. Its partnerships with airlines in North America help travellers from across the continent reach Qantas gateways in Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, and New York with ease.
