If you think about traveling to a far away land, you may think about making a trip to Australia. But getting to know it on a cruise, crossing beautiful seas and witnessing that wonderful contrast between futuristic structures and its untamed nature, is really a thrill. Australia is a collection of immense, almost uninhabited spaces, like the Red Center, sacred to the aborigines. Under Uluru (Ayers Rock) we find the cave where, even today, Aboriginal women give birth, and only in this way do we understand the deep connection they have with their mother earth. Sydney is located in a beautiful bay; Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth are also all beautiful. Lush rainforests thrive there, like Kakadu Park, and of course there is spectacular diving along the coral reef. The nature is extremely diverse and interesting, with a number of unique animals living in Australia. It is rather easy to make friends with Australians: just a cold beer, and their easy-going attitude soon emerges.
