Scientific American Travel. See Australia's beaches, and architecture

AUSTRALIA • JANUARY 4th – 14th, 2019


Spring into action and bring your Australia dreams to life. Join Bright Horizons in an immersive visit to the Land of Oz and get the latest on the expanding world of science.

Spend three wild days in Tasmania, sea kayaking, hiking, and visiting Tasmanian devils — or delve into Hobart’s local food scene. Head out into Adelaide’s countryside and sample Barossa Valley wines, or head for the hills and walk among the kangaroos and koalas in a preserve. Kangaroo Island is one of the best places to see kangaroos and wallabies in the wild, and has remarkable local seafood, honey, and wine. Overnight stays in Hobart and Adelaide mean leisurely meals, relaxed touring, and time for serendipity. While we sail the Tasman Sea, Bass Strait, and Great Australian Bight, we’ll have exclusive science classes aboard Holland America Line’s Noordam.

Share Tasmanian sunsets with a friend. Browse Adelaide’s great Central Market for snacks. You’ll find new ideas, great conversations, and scenic beauty all around when you visit elemental Australia with Scientific American. Reserve now!
