Brown is the new black and Kangaroo Island is the new Galapagos.  Trek Travel is offering a new, luxury Australian trip starting with a New Year’s Eve celebration in Sydney, Australia overlooking the famous Harbour Bridge at midnight, followed by a unique ride through South Australia culminating on Kangaroo Island – an untouched island with expansive native bushland, diverse wildlife and pristine beaches. The trip, which is open to anyone who is moderately fit, consists of nine days of wine tasting, culture, great food, nature, urban exploration and of course cycling.
Experience the laid back pace of life evident everywhere in Australia and the incredible beauty that presents itself around each corner. The trip travels through extremely diverse regions in South Australia including the Barossa Valley, featuring some of Australia’s best wine, the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula and charming coastal villages.  The scenic ferry ride across the water to Kangaroo Island will prepare you for several days of exploring the pristine wilderness and rare geological sites. Cycling into Adelaide at the close of the trip and experiencing the contrast between the wild, amazing terrain of Kangaroo Island and the vibrant, cultural city will prove to be a once in a lifetime experience.
Trek Travel luxury trips always include a variety of accommodations in the region’s best and most unique hotels and inns.  The accommodations on the South Australia trip offers a wide range of experiences, from being surrounded by vineyards, to taking advantage of wide-open ocean views, to enjoying the downtown bustle of Adelaide.
The 2008/2009 Trek Travel New Year’s South Australia trip will start on January 4th and run until January 11th, and the pre-trip Sydney New Year’s Eve Package runs from December 31st to January 3rd.
