8 TOURING australasia There s no more convenient way to travel than on a tour, it takes all the hassle out of travelling, opens your mind to local cultures, gets you trying out a whole bunch of exciting new activities and is a great way to make new friends from all over the world. You ll visit all the mustsee highlights, of course, but expert guides will also take you to authentic, out-of-the-way places that only those with insider knowledge would know. You d probably never find them on your own! Taking a tour can usually be cheaper than trying to put it together yourself, so whatever your budget, we re confident you ll find your perfect trip. We also guarantee that you will not find the same tour cheaper anywhere else. To help you choose the trip style that s right for you, see the box on each of the tour pages and look out for the following logos throughout the brochure: Start The adventure These tours encourage you to step off the beaten path and immerse yourself in your destination. You ll usually share your trip with no more than like-minded travellers, though the average group size is often lower. As above, but aimed at younger travellers looking to experience the best of Australasia with a bunch of fun and friendly travel mates. Please note that some of our touring partners set as an official age limit, while for others is suggested as a guideline. On these trips, which typically have a larger group size, you ll travel only with year olds who share your passion for travel. These trips are super sociable, ideal for making new friends through shared experiences. For the ultimate flexibility, consider one of our self-drive tours which include your accommodation and a handy self-drive kit packed with maps and directions. Car rental is bought separately so you can choose your own vehicle. Independent travel is easy with Greyhound Australia, Oz Experience, Kiwi Experience and Feejee Experience, whose hop-on, hop-off bus networks allow you to explore at your own pace and to your own itinerary. Many of the pass options conveniently come with the top sightseeing activities and adventures thrown in; so you can travel safe in the knowledge that you re not going to miss out on anything you came to see. Exactly what it says on the tin. These exciting short tours can be booked on their own, added on to a longer tour or mixed and matched to create your own itinerary. You are likely to be travelling with other like-minded people but each tour is different, run by our local operators and designed for maximum enjoyment. Picture courtesy of Contiki Holidays 8

12 Go Smart or go home GO SMART OR GO HOME Travel insurance OK, travel insurance might not be the most exciting thing in the world, but it could be the most important purchase you make before you take off on your travels. You must take travel insurance before you leave, you won t be able to get it once you have left your home country. The chances are that you ll have the time of your life and you ll return home with a big smile on your sun-bronzed face but just in case things don t quite go according to plan it s wise to have a safety net in place for that extra peace of mind. So if you plan to cycle around colourful city streets, cross a few roads, eat weird and wonderful food, cart your expensive camera or ipod from hostel to hotel or get adventurous bungee jumping, skydiving or more, then make sure you ask us to organise the cover that s right for you. multiflex pass Change your mind?

14 RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL MAKING IT COUNT Coming from a 11-year-old girl in one of our projects in Peru, this was, without question, the best job offer we ve ever had. Despite its beautiful surroundings and the buzz that comes with a thriving tourism industry, Cuzco is a tough place to grow up for many children. For those living in extreme poverty there s no room for big ambitions and many turn to begging, taking drugs and living on the streets. The Inti Runakunaq Wasin Centre (House of the People of the Sun) offers food, somewhere to safe to play, and educational support for children and young people. They learn valuable skills including jewellery making, leather working, sewing, cooking, music and English. Thanks to the amazing work of volunteers and supporters from around the world these guys can finally afford to dream big. We re proud to be building a new art workshop for the centre, which will open up even more opportunities for local children and young people. This US$32,000 facility is just one of the many projects we re involved in around the world. When I grow up you can work for me. THE STA TRAVEL FOUNDATION Responsible tourism is at the heart of what we do, and our Foundation is something we re hugely proud of. It allows us to use all our existing resources, expertise and experience and make sure every penny goes towards our chosen causes around the world. It s a registered charity, so you can be sure that everything you donate goes right to the people who need it most. We focus on a number of different projects throughout the year, including conservation, clean water, kids projects and medical centres.
