Special to Sun Life Magazine – April 2016

Short on time, long on choreographed vacation desires? I want to see it all! Come fly with me, let’s do it while we can and because we can…… This month I will take you on not one, but two, of my amazing “bucket list” journeys. Let’s first look at The Great Australian Aircruise, because after all “there’s nothing like Australia”, right! From the iconic city to the majestic outback, bathing you in adventure & luxury, aquatic wonderlands & amazing cuisine.
The original Great Australian Aircruise combines the best of outback Australia with a taste of the tropics. From the remote majesty of Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) to the wetland splendor of Kakadu National Park, this is a journey of a lifetime.
Aircruise to the quintessential Aussie outback locations of Longreach, Katherine, Kakadu, the Kimberley, Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Uluru (Ayers Rock), Alice Springs and Birdsville. Aerial views of the stunning MacDonnell Ranges and the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago will amaze. The Great Australian Aircruise is a unique experience that showcases the history, landscapes and backbone of Australia. Let the map & pictures tell but a part of my story.
Then we have the “Icons of New Zealand Aircruise”, a beautiful discovery of all the diverse landscapes and timeless natural beauty New Zealand has to offer. New Zealand is home to a vastly different variety of landscapes, from the snowcapped peaks of Mount Cook and the Alps, to the towering geysers of Rotorua and the pristine wilderness of Fiordland NP. Staying at luxurious and perfectly located accommodation throughout, the Icons of New Zealand Aircruise is a unique opportunity not to be missed. After all NZ is definitely ‘100% PURE” in every facet of your adventure.
Yes, it’s time to fly
