Exploring the Land Down Under

“It was a dream come true,” described Melfort resident, Shari Moneta. “I always wanted to visit Australia.” So Shari and two friends, Dorothy and Pat, signed up for the WestWorld Tours Australia & New Zealand - The Land Down Under tour in January 2016.

In Australia, the trio experienced an Outback BBQ at Alice Springs, enjoyed a performance at the Sydney Opera House, and visited the Featherdale Wildlife Park and the Blue Mountains. They also toured the Great Barrier Reef in a glass-bottom boat and went snorkeling. On Phillip Island they watched the world-famous Penguin Parade.

Akaroa, New Zealand featured breathtaking scenery. In Dunedin, the trio walked the steepest residential street in the world and also had a sweet visit at Cadbury World®. They cruised through Fiordland National Park, a 1.2 million hectare World Heritage site that is comprised of valleys, mountains, lakes, rainforest, native flora and fauna.

Shari was impressed with WestWorld Tours. The tour was well-planned and organized, and guide, Koral Carpentier, was amazing.
