   News from the Waratah Team  (May/June 2017)









VIVID Sydney 2017!

The Waratah Team with previous and current members was celebrating its 30th Anniversary with a BBQ by the pool in January.

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 is on again from 26th May to 17th 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 from 24th March to 23rd April.

Over the last few months a record amount of rain fell at Uluru -Kata Tjuta National Park. Average annual rainfall at Uluru is usually just 270 mm but this has been topped several times. This is good news for visitors as wildflowers bloom over an extended period in this 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 now 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".

We are now 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.

The 3-day "Quinkan Adventure" departing Cairns is a fantastic outback and rainforest tour. Discover Cooktown and surrounds by 4WD and enjoy the outstanding Mungumby Lodge on a very relaxed trip.

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!
