Cross the International Date Line and arrive in the Land Down Under. Our journey to Australia is a TFT favorite, combining adventure with cultural exploration and major travel destinations with little-known gems. Best of all, you will discover the best of Australia’s wildlife during our service program in the Yungaburra and earn up to 20 hours of community service!
You will explore the rainforests of Australia while working with local organizations dedicated to protecting the country’s unique and diverse wildlife. Projects include working at a rehabilitation center for injured and orphaned tree-kangaroos, visiting an endangered ecosystem to help preserve the trees that gliding possums call home, and helping with the revegetation of local parks. Over the years, our service work has had a direct and positive impact on the community, even being featured in the local news.
The adventure doesn’t stop there — when traveling with TFT, you can be sure that you will cuddle with koalas, pet kangaroos, spend time adventuring in the outback, explore Sydney, discover the Great Barrier Reef, and of course, immerse yourself in the Australian culture and relaxed lifestyle!
