2019 Williston High School Australia Program
Truly breathtaking landscapes, unique animals, and countless once-in-a-lifetime experiences make traveling to Australia an incredible adventure. Diverse and complex ecosystems from barren bush deserts to lush jungles to shimmering coral reefs can rarely all be experienced in one travel destination, but here each environment flourishes as much as the bustling life of the iconic city of Sydney. In Australia, you may have the chance to come face to face with amazing creatures such as koalas, wild dolphins, sea turtles and other fascinating animals that call these environments their home.
Learn about the history and traditions of the early peoples of Australia and see how these cultures and practices have evolved and influenced the area today. You’ll also get a healthy dose of rugged adventure, taking surf lessons on the beach, or exploring remote islands and glittering marine ecosystems.
Check out some of the possible featured experiences of your coming adventure! Each customized itinerary is unique, but these are just a few of the activities which may be available during your program.
Volunteer on conservation projects
Visit the Sydney Opera House
Snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef
Snorkel with minkie whales alongside researchers

We work hard to create engaging, educational, and truly immersive itineraries for our travelers. However, we also know that travel can be unpredictable, so we always design our experiences to be flexible enough to allow for adjustments based on group interests, unexpected opportunities, and any weather or safety concerns that may arise during your program. Should changes to the itinerary occur, we will notify travelers and families as quickly as possible.[table “” not found /]

I was very concerned about my daughter who has a peanut allergy travelling to a foreign country for the first time without us. Walking Tree was very sensitive to my concerns and reassured me that this is something they could handle and they did! I would send her again in a heartbeat. Thank you Walking Tree.
