Bunnik’s new Aussie tour takes in Canberra and the sparkling Sapphire Coast


Just one week after launching their first ever tour through the Highlights of Western Victoria, Bunnik Tours has launched a tour of our nation’s capital and the sparkling Sapphire Coast.

 

On this scenic 11 day exploration of Canberra & the Sapphire Coast travellers will uncover the natural beauty, bustling towns and vast wildlife this stunning region has on offer.

 

Spend the first few glorious days taking in all the must-see sights of Canberra. The tour will include a private, behind the scenes look at Parliament House, just for our Bunnik group, complete with a delicious meal prepared by the talented inhouse chefs. Paying tribute to our brave fallen soldiers at the Australian War Memorial, the tour group will have the honour of attending a Last Post Ceremony in the Commemorative Courtyard, a truly memorable experience. Jump on Bunnik’s exclusive hop on-hop off bus visiting key attractions, from the National Museum of Australia to the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House and the National Rose Gardens.

Nature lovers are in luck, with this small group tour offering a departure in October 2021 that coincides with the annual Floriade flower festival. As the streets of Canberra come alive in a kaleidoscope of colourful blooms, they will encounter over 1,000,000 blossoming flowers in Commonwealth Park, along with live entertainment, arts and crafts.

 

Headed for the coast, the tour enters the beautiful Eurobodalla region in the south of NSW. Tasting the flavours from the local towns, they’ll discover why Bodalla is famous for their ice cream and milkshakes, before relaxing with a glass of wine and sampling the cheese at Tilba Valley Winery & Ale House.

 

Arriving into Bermagui the spectacular Sapphire Coast comes into view. Travelling this scenic stretch the tour will stop at a number of main towns, including Merimbula, Eden and Pambula. Hear historic tales, meet the locals and witness a myriad of natural wonders, along the way. The journey takes the group up to breathtaking lookouts, through goldfields, the rugged coastlines of Ben Boyd National Park and out to sea. With an abundance of wildlife from the ocean to the land and skies, be amazed at the variety on display. Learn the techniques behind oyster farming, marvel at the Snowy Hydro engineering feat, and witness the fascinating Camel Rock and Horse Head Rock that actually look just like their name suggests.

 

Before the tour concludes in Canberra, the group will experience a private tour of the wonderfully restored 1850s Lanyon Homestead. Exploring the convict-era outbuildings, they will gain an appreciation for life back in the day, before wandering the lovingly cultivated gardens along with a scrumptious high tea to boot!
