“ We’re all travellers who are as passionate

about seeing the world as you are.”

03

For us, travelling is all about discovering amazing

places with a bunch of like-minded people & having

a great time doing it. Our aim? To make your trip a

life changing adventure. A trip where you discover

awe-inspiring places & make life-long friends. A trip

fi lled with mind-blowing experiences & unforgettable

memories. A trip packed full of local culture, cool

places & great people. A trip that really will change

your view on the world.

We’re the original travel company for 18-35s - we’ve

been travelling the world with people like you since

‘62. The old Combi vans have long since been

replaced by state-of-the-art coaches, but we haven’t

lost our spirit of adventure. While other companies

have come & gone over the years, the legendary

Contiki experience lives on - we’re all travellers who

are as passionate about seeing the world as you are.

We want to make the world a better place by

bringing people together from around the globe.

We’re also committed to sustainable tourism,

whether it is through our efforts to protect the world’s

oceans, our commitment to low-carbon transport or

our other initiatives. See p.12 for more.

Whether you’re a seasoned explorer or a fi rst timer, with

a group or going solo (about half our travellers are)

one thing’s for certain - our know-how means you will

experience more with less hassle. We include heaps

of extras from amazing accommodation & authentic

local food, to sights, fantastic optional activities & great

tour guides. We’ll fast track you to all the best bits of Oz

& NZ - all you need to do to share the good times is

get in touch with us or your travel agent.

There’s a whole wide world to

explore. Come see it with us.

You only know

when you go...

We travel for the moments.

Some moments are awe

inspiring - they make your jaw

drop, your eyes widen & your

heart beat faster. Like seeing the

amazing colours of Uluru change

at sunset, getting up close to

ancient Aboriginal Rock Art in

Kakadu or taking the leap on a

bungy jump in Queenstown.

Others are a little more low key,

like strolling the white sands of

Whitehaven Beach or cruising

the spectacular fiords of the

Milford Sound. A holiday in Oz

& NZ is truly exceptional - the

distinctive & varied landscapes,

the unique local cultures that are

ready to be shared & the classic

local characters you’ll meet along

the way. It’s about widening your

perspective & experiencing new

cultures that have a profound

impact on your life. And ok, maybe

it’s a little bit about the bragging

rights back home as well...

For travellers

like you\

We know that some of the best experiences

you can have on the road are not just about

the places, but about the people you share

them with too. Contiki began as a bunch of

friends discovering Europe together. Sharing

the good times with like-minded people is

still at the heart of everything we do today.

Whether you are an experienced traveller or a fi rst time

explorer, with a little or a lot of time, we have trips to suit all

tastes & budgets. Not sure where to start? The Tour Genius

on the Contiki website will give you some inspiration. See

contiki.com/genius for more.

On top of all this we can save you time & money.

Researching a trip can be fun, but time consuming. Our

expertise means that we can get better rates on everything

from accommodation to white water rafting, plus priority

access at many of Australia & New Zealand’s top attractions.

Throw our super-effi cient on road team into the mix & you

really are set for the travel experience of a lifetime.

Going solo?

While the majority of our travellers set out solo, one thing is

for sure - you never fi nish a Contiki trip without new friends.

Because more than half our travellers go it alone, you

are guaranteed to meet other young, adventurous &

like-minded travel mates, (18-35 is all we do). We don’t

charge single supplements for solo travellers. We’ll

match you up with a same-sex room-mate, or you can

always opt for the privacy of your own room for a little extra.

First big trip?

Your fi rst big trip away can be a bit daunting, even if you’ve

travelled a lot before. That’s where Contiki steps in. From the

moment you decide to go, we’re here to help. How do I

get a passport? What visas might I need? What do I pack?

Give us a call, drop us an email or get online - we’ll answer

your questions & give you lots of essential travel tips & advice

so you’re ready to start your adventure.

You’ll also receive an exclusive Contiki-only Travellers

Guide fi lled with loads of essential pre-trip info, tips on the

destinations you’re headed to, ideas on what to pack, other

cool ideas for your free time, plus lots more.

dinner at one of Queenstown’s hotspots & an

authentic Maori Hangi meal complete with

succulent chicken, lamb & a delectable

selection of fresh vegetables. Get ready for

some culinary delights!

The Contiki Difference\

What’s better than going to Oz & NZ? Having

someone on hand to make sure you have a good

time, that’s what. Our team’s sole purpose is to

make your trip the time of your life.

With our Tour Managers & Tour Drivers at the ready, there’s always a

reliable friend at hand to show you the sights, cool local places &

make everything easy.

Your dedicated Tour Manager is like an on-road guide book.

They’re not just passionate travellers, they’re professionals too.

We’ve plucked the best of the bunch & sent them on a training trip

(the best in the industry) to be able to make the cut on our tours. In

fact, we’ve written the book on training. That means they’ve done

the hard yards, are packed full of knowledge & they’re ready to

share it all with you. They take care of all the details so everything

runs smoothly & will organise a sightseeing tour or orientation walk

in every place that you stop.

Your trusty Tour Drivers are the same, they’ve trained hard to make

sure they’ll get you where you need to go without any hassle. You

can sit back & relax knowing that choosing to go Contiki means

reading a map & fi nding the hotel is never your problem.

We lead, the others follow.

Low cost

airlines\

Low cost airlines fl y to many Australian cities

where our tours start & fi nish, including

Sydney, Cairns, Darwin & Alice Springs.

There’s also fl ights to The Whitsunday Coast &

Hamilton Island (both access The Whitsundays),

as well as Brisbane & the Gold Coast

(accessing Surfers Paradise). Low Cost airlines

also work with our Northern Territory tours too!

If you’re thinking about doing Contiki in New

Zealand, then low cost airlines can connect

you from many Australian cities to Auckland,

Christchurch & Wellington.

Some websites to try include:

www.airnewzealand.ca

www.qantas.com

www.virginaustralia.com

Call Contiki Holidays or speak to your travel

agent about great low cost fl ights, but

remember, to get the cheapest fare - the

earlier you book, the better!

01 Fly into The Whitsundays & out of Cairns when you take

a 9 day Island & Rainforest tour (p.48).

02 Take a 7 day Magical Tropics tour (p.49) fl ying in to start

your tour in The Whitsundays & fl ying out of Cairns at the

end of the tour

03 Link a couple of shorter tours together to see even more

of Australia! Like the City to Surf (p.51) with a Sydney

Explorer package (p.55). Fly into Sydney & out of Brisbane.

Festivals

& Events

There’s loads of music festivals, gigs &

sporting events happening throughout the

year in Oz & NZ - so why not get in on the

action & combine one event before, after or

during your tour.

Big Day Out

Held every summer in both Oz & NZ, it’s a

showcase for homegrown musical talent

mixing it with some of the best acts in the

world (Jan or Feb). Or for a peek at other

festivals & what’s happening visit

inthemix.com.au, fasterlouder.com.au or

liveguide.com.au for more.

Sporting events

Sport is like a religion in Australia &

New Zealand & there’s plenty of events

happening all year round. From every kind of

football in the winter months (Aussie Rules,

Rugby League & Rugby Union), to cricket

(Nov-Feb) & the Australian Open tennis

(Jan), plus loads more.

Find more ideas at

contiki.com/festivals

When you’re travelling with Contiki it’s not just

about travelling on a coach - you’ll see

Australia & New Zealand from all kinds of

angles. We mix it up with included fl ights,

ferries & boat rides too.

Travelling on our Contiki coaches is more than just a

way to get around - it’s a social event. You’re never

short of mates to hang out with - it’s a great place

to check out the views, listen to music or curl up in

your comfy reclining seat & chill. We’re always

stopping at great spots on the trip, many of which

you’d miss if you travelled any other way.

You can charge your phone, camera or iPod on

board too, plus these plush, air-con coaches are

environmentally friendly. See p.12 for more. What’s

even better about our coaches is that they’re easy

& hassle free. We get you where you need to be,

drop you right at your door & unload your bags so

you can hit the ground running.

Helping protect our oceans\

Did you know that oceans cover 71% of the globe, but less than

1% are under legal protected status? Beyond beautiful pictures,

there’s the harsh realization that this environment is fragile & it’s

up to us to protect it for ourselves & for future generations.

Contiki is actively supporting two projects involved in the critical task of marine protection.

We’re helping young environmentalists in their hands-on work protecting the world’s second

largest barrier reef via the Mesoamerican Reef Leadership program. We’re also backing

Oceana’s valuable research work in the Mediterranean Sea.

Check out contiki.com/responsibletravel, where you’ll fi nd a hub of oceans information

designed to inform, inspire & compel change.

Working to make a difference\

Our Foundation.

We’re founding partners of The Travel

Corporation Conservation Foundation, a nonprofit

who has committed more than US$2

million to help underprivileged communities &

support sustainable tourism around the world.

From sponsoring the Tourism for Tomorrow

Awards encouraging tourism operators to

develop & share sustainable tourism practices

globally, to supporting Contiki’s own special

causes such as ocean conservation, the

Foundation is doing some great work.

On the road.

Compared to cars, planes & trains, coaches

are by far the most carbon efficient way

to travel. Our modern coaches are some

of the best around & all exceed strict

emission regulations.

Learn more at

www.ttcconservation

foundation.com

Recycling.

The Travel Corporation & Contiki are

committed to use 100% recycled paper

for the body stock of all our brochures. The

environmental benefi ts are important in the

following ways:

By using paper made from recycled

fi bre we save approximately 90,000 trees

per year.*

Recycled paper makes for less waste

being deposited into landfi lls.

The paper mill uses a chlorine free fi bre

bleaching process (PCF) that avoids

potential dioxins from being released into

adjoining waterways.

The paper mill uses a complex fi ltration

process that returns the river water in a

cleaner state than initially received.

The use of 100% recovered fi bre means

that the mill uses approximately 1/5th

of the energy that would be required

to produce corresponding grades from

primary fi bres.

Contiki & Celine Cousteau

We are excited about our partnership with

leading environmentalist, adventurer & explorer,

Celine Cousteau, granddaughter of legendary

oceanographer, Jacques Cousteau. Celine

will be working with us to raise awareness about

environmental issues, like those affecting precious

marine ecosystems.

As a documentary fi lmmaker & gifted storyteller,

Celine has a fantastic ability to connect with people

from a diverse range of cultures, helping individuals

to better understand their own natural environments.

Check out Celine’s video message for Contiki

travellers at contiki.com/celinecousteau

“I am passionate about

collaborating with

Contiki, their team &

travellers; who are part

of the new generation

of active citizens

making a difference

by understanding &

protecting the Earth’s

resources. The health

of our fragile oceans

are key to the well-being of our planet as a whole

& Contiki‘s choice to help protect the marine

environment is a cause which deeply resonates

with me.” Celine Cousteau.

The body stock paper in our brochures

meets the following Forest/Environmental/

Process Certifi cations: PEFC, Blue Angel,

ISO 9001 and 14001.

We are proud to commit to using what is one

of the most environmentally friendly coated

recycled papers on Planet Earth.

* Calculation based on that provided by The Environmental

Defense Fund.

What about you?

Looking after our planet is important &

taking care of the environment shouldn’t

stop when you go travelling. There are lots of

small things that you can do each day to make

a difference. Simple stuff like re-using your

drink bottle instead of buying a new one each

day, choosing products with less packaging,

recycling on the go or simply turning off the

lights when you leave your hotel room are all

ways to lessen your environmental impact.

Did you know you can reduce your

carbon footprint even more by offsetting

your travel? Find out how at contiki.com/

You’ve saved hard for your holiday so to guarantee you get the most out of your trip,

then taking a dip in some glacial hotpools, plus loads more.

Travelling is about seeing, touching & tasting the places you visit. It’s about getting the most

out of your holiday (& your money), getting up close to the must-see sights & having a great

room for a little extra.

perfect for a late night dip!).

Indulging in some great local food is one of the highlights of any holiday. We include some

extra special meals, like a pizza dinner at one of Queenstown’s most popular restaurants &

traditional ‘Hangi’, whilst still giving you plenty of time to seek out & discover the best local

cuisine for yourself (like New Zealand lamb, of course!).

never dived before or if you’re more experienced – exploring this Reef is

the world & a World Heritage site with 400 different types of coral & 1500

species of fi sh – so it’s pretty amazing. If you’re up for it you can even dive

at night & see a whole different side of this amazing spot.

optional activities

When do I choose? Optionals are arranged & paid for on

tour. By leaving the fi nal decisions until then you can

choose at the same time as your new friends, you’ll get

great value as we get you great rates & your Tour Manager

can offer personal advice. Some activities are seasonal &

weather dependent as well.

How do I pay? You pay on tour with major credit cards or

cash (A$ in Australia or NZ$ in New Zealand).

Am I expected to tip on tour?

Every country in the world has different tipping policies & in

Australia & New Zealand within service industries, tipping is

common practice. Tipping is totally optional & only given

if you feel the service has exceeded your expectations.

Your Tour Manager will assist you with any questions about

this. Likewise, if you think your Contiki team have done an

exceptional job then you may wish to tip them. This is

entirely discretionary – it’s completely up to you.

Brochure authenticity

We have put a great deal of effort into producing this

brochure. The information given & literature produced by

Contiki has been compiled with care & is published in good

faith. Sometimes, because of circumstances outside our

control, we have to alter some activities due to seasonal

closing or repairs to buildings, etc., especially early or late in

the season. If this happens, alternatives will be arranged.

Do I need vaccinations?

At the time this brochure went to press (July, 2011), no

vaccinations were necessary. However, it is wise to check

up-to-date information with your travel agent prior to departure.

Don’t forget to bring with you any medication that you may

require en route, such as antihistamines or antibiotics.

Seasonality & climate?

Being such a large landmass, Australia is prone to seasonal

climate changes. This will mean that at certain times of the

year some of our brochured itineraries may need to be

slightly changed. For example: Northern Australia itineraries

during the wet season (December to April).

Inland alpine areas of the South Island in New Zealand

can be as cold as -10 C between May & October.

Do I need visas?

Please read carefully. Depending on your nationality, you

may require a visa to enter Australia & New Zealand. You

are fully responsible for obtaining all necessary visas

prior to the departure of your tour. Contiki is not legally

permitted to knowingly allow anybody who does not have a

valid visa to join a tour. Consult Contiki or your travel agent

to determine any visas you require & how to obtain them.

1962 and in all countries where Contiki operates we fully

comply with local travel industry laws. All your money is

PERIOD OF NOTICE CANCELLATION FEE

Number of days prior to as % of

tour commencement total price

45 days or more notice The non-refundable deposit

plus the Travel Protection

Plan’s insurance premium

is forfeited

44-22 days: 25%

21-8 days: 30%

7-1 days: 50%

Day of departure: 100%

Where the percentage cancellation fee is less than the tour deposit, the

cancellation fee will equal loss of deposit. If the reason for cancellation

falls within the terms of any vacation insurance policy which you hold,

then any such charges may, subject to the terms of your insurance policy,

be refunded to you by the insurance company.

3.4 Any cancellation of additional services booked prior to and after

your tour or resort booking, such as pre and post accommodation and

transfers, that are cancelled within 30 days of the tour departure incur

fees, change fees or Airline cancellation fees will be applicable and

will be in addition to the above cancellation charges. In some cases,

airline tickets are 100% non refundable.

4. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING

4.1 If after your booking has been confirmed, you wish to change

to an alternate departure date or you wish to change to a different

Contiki vacation, you may do so subject to availability and provided the

new vacation date is also in this brochure.

tour departure of equivalent or greater value in which case a C$30 per

person amendment fee will be charged.
