“Hot, dusty and a long way, but well worth it!!”
- VIC, Australia May 2019

I enjoyed this trip from the top end to Perth. It was a long, hot trip but well worth it. We saw some amazing things and some not so good things as far as personnel in the outback goes. The cruising down the gorges is amazing as are the dolphins, stingrays and other sea life we saw.
Glamping at El Questro was interesting but I'm a softie and need my air-con. The lovely, warm Zebedee Springs at El Questro were a highlight as were the spitting archer fish at more

“Last Frontier”
- New Zealand Jul 2018 View Photo

We have tripped with Travelmarvel before in WA so we knew what to expect. We are also not so critical to complain about little things that I know others grizzle about. After all, we are on holiday. So long days in the bus looking at scenery is something I am happy with. My ratings reflect that it was a pleasant experience. I have to add that Leanne from Global Journeys was very efficient throughout the process.

“River cruises were fabulous”
- ACT, Australia Aug 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. So many fabulous places and things to see. Tour guide and coach driver were very knowledgeable and attentive to all passengers. Tour inclusions such as river cruises and glass bottomed boat cruise were fabulous.
