What we'll do
Tick off 3 classic Aussie activities in half a day on this fun trip!
There are three essential things you need to do when visiting Australia:
- Meet the native animals
- Learn to throw a boomerang
- Enjoy an authentic Australian BBQ
On this half-day trip, you'll get to do all three! This tour is perfect for families, friends, solo travellers and anyone with a big Australian checklist and not much time to do it! Your tour starts at Manly and after a coffee, you'll head north to an amazing Reptile & Marsupial Park. Here, you'll meet some famous Australian animals for feeding time. See friendly kangaroos, emus and wallabies and get your photo near a koala!
Afterwards, enjoy a classic Aussie BBQ lunch. You will literally get to "throw shrimp on the barbie". You'll also get to (attempt to) throw and catch a boomerang. Anyone who can catch it will win a prize!
Koalas, a delicious BBQ lunch and boomerangs - what are you waiting for?!
