Sydney Harbour Bridge Day Climb
NSW: Sydney Harbour Bridge Day Climb

‘This was such a breathtaking experience! We were on the 5pm climb, and got onto the bridge just before the sun began to set. The views over Sydney as the sky changed colour were just amazing, and our climbing guide was heaps of fun! Absolutely loved it!’ Marc, 24/02/20.

Scenic World Blue Mountains cable car
NSW: Scenic World unlimited rides pass

‘The last time I went on the Scenic Railway I was seven. I had heard such wonderful things about this experience and the team and Scenic Railway – when we chose to make a trip to the Blue Mountains for my birthday.. This experience was on my ‘must do list’. Despite the many ways to experience the Blue Mountains escarpment – the thing that struck me most was the teams love of what they do and how proud they are to be part of the Scenic World team. You can feel the energy. Every host has their own way of entertaining, from drums to story telling. This is much more than a way to ‘look’ at magnificent mountains. It is a way to ‘experience’ the Australian culture. Go to the bush – take an esky. The Blue Mountains is only an hour and a half from Sydney CBD. Totally recommended,’ Naomi, , 24/02/20.

Perth Swan River cruise
WA: Perth Swan River dinner cruise with drinks

‘Highly recommend to locals and tourists. It’s the best awesome way to see our beautiful city at night along the Swan River lights better than the fireworks. Lived in Perth all my life and never seen it in this way “Spectacular”. Great entertainer/singer on board/ great staff and fabulous food fit for the A Team,’ Patricia, 23/02/20.

Lakes Entrance helicopter flight
VIC: Lakes Entrance 8 minute helicopter flight – for 2

‘My partner and I were gifted this RedBalloon experience by family and whilst our family has a holiday house in Lakes Entrance we had never thought of doing a helicopter flight over the lakes. Our experience was booked for Valentine’s Day and we were so eager for our adventure we arrived almost an hour earlier than our scheduled flight. The staff and pilot were nothing but welcoming and even let us take our flight early. I would highly recommend anyone visiting East Gippsland,’ Jessie, 23/02/20.

‘Our lunch at Jounieh was really enjoyable. The service was friendly and authentic, food delicious and the setting very relaxing. The restaurant is quietly tucked away yet very easy to find. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented. The servings for two people were extra generous! Would definitely recommend to friends and family and makes an excellent gift!’ Julie, 22/02/20.

Zip lining Tasmania
TAS: Canopy zip lining adventure

‘We had such a great time, the staff were wonderful and caring and knowledgeable. They accommodated our little boy (7) with Autism and were so kind and made him feel safe and secure during the whole thing, joking with him and taking the time to allay his fears. Could not recommend this experience highly enough! The views were simply stunning, and even though I’m a bigger person, I was still able to go and feel like part of the group. Highly recommended!’ Tamara, 19/02/20.

Rottnest Island aerial view from scenic flight
WA: Rottnest Island half day scenic flight – for 2

‘It was our first time visiting Rottnest, so we decided to visit the island in style! Our pilot was very knowledgeable and comfortable the entire flight, making myself (a nervous flyer) very relaxed. He was also patient with us and didn’t rush our experience. Also, the views from above were breathtaking! Thank you to our pilot for doing a lap around the island where we snapped some amazing photos!’ Aleks, 17/02/20.
