A travel adventure should feel like just that, an adventure. Relaxing vacations like cruises and stays at all-inclusive resorts certainly have their place, and are no doubt a ton of fun, but they don’t offer the same level of excitement and thrill as going somewhere new and unique from anywhere you’ve been before. Australia seems like its a world away, as it takes over a day to get there, and in many ways it feels like a completely different world from the United States. Its arid and semi-arid climate systems lend themselves to diverse flora and fauna that we simply don’t have, which makes a trip to the continent even more special than you could imagine. The idea of the African Safari is well-established throughout the world, but Australian wildlife is just as worthy of a tour.


Australia is home to animals that most zoos don’t even contain. For the single woman traveler looking to truly explore what the world has to offer, there is no better way to feel connected to the Earth than by observing its most beautiful inhabitants. Australia is home to marsupials such as kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, and wombats. While seeing a kangaroo in a zoo in the United States is definitely a possibility, there is nothing quite like seeing a wild kangaroo in the Australian desert. If you get a kick out of seeing horses or cows grazing on long trips through the American country side, you’ll barely be able to contain yourself when you see a troop of joeys dutifully following their mother on your way to the Sydney Opera House.


Monotremes, egg-laying mammals, are completely unique to Australia. Monotremes include such animals as platypuses and echidnas. For a truly special vacation spot for the single traveler, consider making a trip to Kangaroo Island, which is said to be the most amazing place on Earth to spot an echidna. Travel tours should take you to places that you may never have gone otherwise, and help you see things you may never have seen before.


Australia is home to some of the most notoriously dangerous snakes in the world. Though this shouldn’t deter you from a visit, we want to make the case here for traveling in groups. Planning every little detail of a vacation, including a reliable and knowledgable tour guide, can be stressful. Choosing an Australian travel tour that makes you feel safe and comfortable is incredibly important for enjoying your trip, and what better way to travel than with a group of like-minded, adventure seeking women?
