VIVID Sydney!

The Waratah Team celebrated the company's 30th Anniversary with a BBQ by the pool.

The first "Crocodile Dundee" movie was a fantastic opportunity to put Australia on the tourist map 30 years ago. Paul Hogan inspired Rudi Diederich a great deal at that time and so this company was born.

Vivid Sydney was on again in June, a festival of light, music and ideas. Vivid transforms Sydney into a wonderland of 'light art' sculptures, innovative light installations and grand-scale projections for free. It is a magical celebration of design excellence and the world's largest outdoor 'art-gallery': a unique Vivid Sydney experience.

Sydney's Handa Opera has performed "Carmen" this year on the harbour stage, a magnificent annual event.

Late last year a record amount of rain fell at Uluru -Kata Tjuta National Park. The green landscape is in stark contrast to the red sands in this otherwise arid semi-desert.

Backpackers on "Work and Travel" visas will now be taxed 15 per cent on any earnings.

The internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro is hosting the biggest "Field of Light" installation at Uluru in the Northern Territory. This show has been extended to the end of the year due to its popularity. Munro has installed more than 50,000 LED solar-powered light stems around the "Rock".

A world-leading project in far north Queensland is set to combine big battery storage and solar power. This plant will generate and store enough renewable energy to power more than 3000 homes in Lakeland and towns of the North. Lakeland is south of Cooktown and on the route of our "Quinkan Adventure" tour departing Cairns. This is a fantastic outback and rainforest tour by 4WD including accommodation at the outstanding Mungumby Lodge.

We are also offering a Saturday departure of our "Blue Mountains Country" day tour to close a missing gap in our program.

Our new "Harbour Nature Walk & Sundowner Cruise" is enjoying a growing popularity. Experience the harbour city on land and water during this 4 hour tour.

Our weekly "Best of OZ" module program can be started in Sydney or Cairns, all up about 100 departures per year. All our tours around the country are synchronised to guarantee you a streamlined holiday you will cherish forever. Now with Hotel up-grades in most locations.

Trust your highly experienced experts, we know what our discerning guests expect from their holidays down under.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
