More than 450 travel ideas in Goway’s new Downunder brochure

TORONTO — Goway’s brand new 2016-17 Downunder brochure is now available. The 132-page brochure has more than 450 travel ideas and is designed to “inspire travellers of all styles”, says the company.

Billed as North America’s most comprehensive travel guide to Australia, New Zealand and the Islands of the South Pacific, the brochure features every possible style of travel imaginable, says Goway, from private touring to cruises, family vacations to Australian & New Zealand working holidays and VIP Travel arrangements.

Highlights for the upcoming ’16 –‘17 season include:

  • Holidays of a Lifetime is Goway’s promise of something special. This year ‘Discover Papua New Guinea’ concentrates on the culture and scenery of this untouched destination in 12 days, with two departure dates: Sept. 13, 2016 and April 11, 2017.

Meanwhile the ever-popular ‘Waltzing Matilda’ has some new great inclusions including a special dinner at Tjapukai Cultural Park, a new Great Barrier Reef Cruise and some great new hotels for ’16 – ’17, says Goway.

  • For snowbirds, in addition to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, New Zealand and Cook Islands, Goway suggests the Central Coast, just over an hour north of Sydney.
  • To cater for an increasing market for health, wellness and nature-based travel ideas Goway has created a new style of travel it calls ‘Goway Nature Experience’. Paperbark Camp is a safari-style tented camp just two hours south of Sydney. Bells at Killcare is a little more upmarket, says Goway: “where the Hamptons meets coastal Australia with luxury accommodation, gourmet food and wine”.
  • Sydney Outdoors is a new independent travel idea for Sydney-bound clients, designed to get the blood pumping. Travellers can enjoy kayaking, hiking, a Sydney Bridge Climb and sightseeing by bicycle.
  • “Speaking of getting your blood pumping, Swim with Great White Sharks in Port Lincoln, South Australia,” adds Goway.
  • Brand new, and a once in a lifetime opportunity, is a visit to the Field of Light Art Installation at Ayers Rock. Artist Bruce Munro has designed the Field of Light, where 50,000 frosted glass spheres gently light the desert floor at dawn and at dusk.
  • A new indigenous experience from Darwin: the Ultimate Tiwi Islands. “A lucky few will be able to immerse themselves in this very special indigenous experience,” says Goway.
  • Reintroducing Broken Hill, also known as the Accessible Outback. Originally founded as a mining town and now knows as the ‘Hollywood of the Outback’, Broken Hill is a fascinating Outback experience easily accessible from Sydney, where visitors can experience underground mining life, indigenous experiences and Outback scenery.
  • A new ‘Overnight in the Barossa Valley’ tour includes a wine tour and night in the Barossa Valley before returning to Adelaide.

To New Zealand, Goway also recently launched ‘New Zealand Your Way’ in conjunction with Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand, offering deals for select New Zealand vacations.

“This year’s Downunder brochure is more extensive than ever, with more unique travel ideas and experiences,” says General Manager Shirley Rourke.

Agents are invited to join Meghan Boyd, Product Manager for Downunder, for an informative webinar about the new brochure. The webinar takes place at 2 p.m. EST on Tues. March 15.
