We know plenty of fun, exciting tours for you to try out, but we’ve narrowed it down to three favourites for you to put on your holiday wish list for 2017.

Barossa Valley

If you’re all about great wine and delicious food and want to take a holiday to celebrate these passions, the Barossa Valley Tour will be a perfect fit.

You’ll see the ancient rock formations at Valley of the Winds, take part in challenging but thrilling hikes, and learn about Aboriginal culture and history while you do the Canyon Rim Walk.

While this tour is best for fitter holidaymakers as it includes some tough hikes, it’s not all hard work. You’ll be able to chill in swimming pools, check your social media online with the Wi-Fi at Ayers Rock Resort, and take part in some awesome Adrenalin Plus Options along the way.

Grampians And Great Ocean Road Tour

For holidaymakers looking for a medium-length trip that allows them to explore Victoria’s Grampians and Great Ocean Road, there’s an awesome three-day all-inclusive tour that’s bound to be a perfect match.

It includes meals, accommodation, entry fees to National Parks, and all of the tour guides you’ll need to make this a truly enriching, illuminating and unique holiday.
