Take in the spectacular Australian high country with this tour staying overnight in a genuine working cattle farm. Hang with the locals and family, hear original Aussie stories and folklore about the old Australia during the times of the gold rushes and outlaws such as Ned Kelly. Taste a local beer in Beechworth or visit a honey farm. Visit Canberra.
Leaving Sydney along the great Murray River and Victoria Alps we head to the town of Mansfield. Whereas Northern Sydney is characterised by grand canyons and the big red outback here the landscape is ever changing from the Great Dividing Range lush forests and strong running rivers. It was here that outlaw here Ned Kelly made his home eventually being tried for multiple murders in the town of Beechworth. Your overnight stay on a working cattle farm will be one of the highlight stays on your whole Australia experience. With no lights from nearby cities to pollute the sky the view of the Milky Way is astronomical (ha ha). Chat with the family and help feed the animals.
Before we reach Melbourne we visit Australia's capital city of Canberra. Here we can visit Parliament House, the Yarralumla Embassy District National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery Mt Ainslie Lookout or the Australian War Memorial.
