Wildlife Found on South Australia’s Kangaroo Island

Visitors to Australia are always asking about the different types of animals that live on land an offshore. Australia is unique and it offers many “odd” species.  There are a number of places to visit our exotic flora and fauna, but a favorite destination away from Sydney is Kangaroo Island.  This is a special location you really ought to include in your visit.

Kangaroo Island is about 15 kilometers off the southern coast of South Australia.  It is open for tours all year round. Guests can feed the pink pelicans and see giant cuttlefish (squid) scooting across the water while penguins waddle around a Kingscote Wharf.  Kangaroos and wallabies, cousin to the kangaroo, bounce around keeping a curious eye in the visiting humans.

At Stokes Bay, you can give a gentle bear hug to the koala bears and even hold a possum or snake.  Lorikeets will beg for stacks and perform antics just to get your attention.  At Seal Bay you’ll take pictures of the New Zealand fur seals while they play around Admirals Arch located in Flinders Chase National Park.  There are friendly kangaroos and more koalas to interact with in while they hang onto the side of trees of Hanson Bay Sanctuary and Western KI Caravan Park.

These are just a few of the exciting options we recommend to our Choice Charter guests.  We look forward to spending a few hours with you on the beautiful waters of Sydney Harbor. Call us today on 02 9558 4666 to learn if we have availability for a last minute cruise on Sydney Harbour.

Thrill Visiting Guests With A Sydney Boat Trip and More

Australia – the land down under. It is easy to say that most people would love to visit Australia. But where do you start? If you live in Australia and are expecting out-of-country guests you probably already have a list of things to see and do.  We suggest a Sydney boat trip, but there are other great places to visit too.  Here are a few suggestions.

Sydney is the largest city in Australia. It is a top travel destination in the country too. Not only does this city have a world-famous harbour, but it also offers much to see. Sydney Harbor is a lovely sight by water and often last minute Sydney boat trips are available.   The Sydney Opera House is an architectural sight to see and the view is best from the harbour.  Be sure to pack along a camera.

Back on shore, Sydney also offers interesting history lessons for the traveler looking to learn while vacationing. The Rocks is a place to learn about Australia’s convict history. You will learn about the hangings and other things that went on in the early days of this city.

One of the wonders of Australia is the Great Barrier Reef. This giant natural work of art is so large it can be seen from space. There are multiple ways to enjoy this beautiful area like snorkeling and scuba diving, beach going and boat trips. If you choose to use a boat, you can charter your own for a Sydney boat trip or hire a professional to captain the boat for you. These boats can take you to island resorts all along the reef, if you choose. A final option is to hire a helicopter to tour the Reef. This chance to see the beauty of the area from the air will amaze you.

Give Choice Charters a call at 02 9558 3666 to discuss Sydney boat trip availability and options.  We want to thrill your guests too!

Who Wants to Plan the Next Corporate Press Announcement?

Planning any corporate event is fraught with complications and stress.  Add into the mix the challenge of creating an event that is guaranteed to attract a strong representation from the press is enough to cause even the most adroit manager several sleepless nights. We can relieve you of the stress of coordinating corporate press releases or other functions.  Just plan you next function on one of our corporate harbour cruises.

Alternative to the Hotel Venue

Corporate harbour cruises have long proven to be a rewarding alternative for companies holding large meetings or announcements.  First, the meeting is away from the traditional corporate office setting.  Also, people don’t have to endure stale snacks offered up at some hotels in the CBD.

A meeting event held aboard a modern yacht provides a unique way for corporations to entertain and meet in elegant luxury.   In fact, the rate for corporate harbour cruises is surprisingly comparable to hotel rates.

Choice Charter provides a professional event planner to work with your corporate team.  These pros make suggestions for the most appropriate vessel to accommodate the function.  They also review requirements for electronic and telecommunication services in order to meet those needs. Vessels are outfitted with the same amenities you would expect to find in a hotel including a meeting room, telecommunications, fax and presentation equipment.

Below are some of the more popular functions or events that Choice Charter hosts:

  • Business meetings
  • Product announcements
  • Milestone celebrations
  • Performance incentives
  • Joint ventures and partnerships
  • Company parties
  • Conferences
  • Trade shows

Of course, we can serve up some memorable meals if that fits within your budget and plans.   Our corporate harbour cruises provides gourmet dining and experienced wait staff for serving meals.  Buffets as well as cocktail cruises with beverages are two popular options. For lighter fare, cruise event coordinators can also arrange for coffee and tea with cakes or finger foods.

When speaking with the scheduling coordinator have information available including the number of guests, the type of event and the general time frame.  That will help narrow down the type of vessel you need.

If this all sounds like just the ticket for your next corporate event, then the next step would be to lock in a date for the corporate harbour cruise.  Contact us at 02 9558 4666 or use the enquiry form.
