Tailormade: Australia cricket & wildlife tour

Eastern Grey Kangaroos

Eastern Grey Kangaroos

 The English Cricket team heads off to Australia this winter in a quest to retain the Ashes following their 3-2 victory in 2016, and this year we will be offering the opportunity to combine any Ashes Test with a tailormade wildlife holiday. This chance to enjoy the first Test in Brisbane, or the day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval combined with a wildlife tour to the Daintree in search of Southern Cassowary, or to Tasmania for some of the world’s most obscure mammals, is sure to excite those with a dual interest in wildlife and cricket (of whom there are many in the Naturetrek office!)
 
We will be arranging these as tailormade holidays and so can incorporate one or more of the Tests with some of the most exciting wildlife regions in Australia. Choose between fully guided private tours, shared wildlife excursions, self-drive tours or a combination of all three. We have offered some of our favourite combinations as suggestions below but, as with any tailormade holiday, we are able to design an itinerary which is specifically designed for you.
