Tourism Australia’s recent "Dundee" tourism campaign brought the legendary Australian Outback hero ‘Mick Dundee’ back to American audiences. What better way to follow in his footsteps than by including one of these wildlife and nature-based team building experiences in your next trip? Taking in deserts, rainforests, beaches and even big cities there’s every chance you’ll even get to meet some real-life Aussie Dundees…
Go gourmet in the outback
Showcasing the traditional bush food of Central Australia, SEIT’s Bush Tucker and Reptiles tour in Australia’s iconic Uluru (Ayers Rock) will give your group a taste of indigenous food and get you up close to Australia’s desert reptiles. Your local Aboriginal hosts will show how this ancient civilization lived off a variety of bush plants and animals. Taste a selection of these foods, and talk with your Aboriginal host about desert life before returning to your accommodation at Sails in the Desert.
Go crocodile spotting
Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures, just 40 minutes north of Cairns Airport in Australia’s north, offers the opportunity to experience wildlife in an authentic, natural setting. Personalised tours can include crocodile spotting cruises as well as interactive wildlife presentations featuring crocodiles, koalas, wombats, kangaroos and more. This award-winning attraction is situated in the World-Heritage listed Wet Tropics area, a stretch of coastline that includes the Great Barrier Reef, making Hartley’s a great inclusion to any Cairns and Port Douglas itinerary.
Go fast on Sydney Harbour
There’s more than one way to see Sydney Harbour, and while taking a cruise on an America’s Cup yacht is a classic experience, those looking for more adrenalin-pumping action look to the adventure of a jetboat. Radical fishtails, spins and stops won’t stop your group taking in all the sights, including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge– they’ll just throw some added thrills into the bargain.
Go Great Barrier Reef
There’s nothing quite like having a beach to yourself…and Whitehaven Beach in Queensland is as exclusive as it gets. Having previously been voted the most beautiful beach on earth, the white pure silica sand will make a stunning backdrop as your group flies in by seaplane, helicopter or boat from Hamilton Island’s qualia resort to enjoy a private lunch like no other.
