Thanks for your enquiry.

Unfortunately, at the moment we are unable to make any new bookings for after 14th September 2018 due to the recent operational changes.

If you would like to find out more in regards to these operational changes, please see our press release at bridgeclimb/bridgecl...wonderful-era/

From the 1st of October a company called Hammons Holdings will be taking over.


Well, we'll just have to keep an eye on things and see how it pans out.
Wow, first I've heard of this and we have already booked and fully paid for November.

Sounds like an amazing trip - we stayed at Port Douglas on our honeymoon, it's a lovely place (except for the snakes)

Attractions all done so we are all set apart from Car Hire which we'll do this weekend.

So - the last lap and here is the attraction list


Stockholm

We wont have too much time here but we have visited before and loved it. Well probably take the local train into town and have a bite to eat and a coffee and wander around.

Doha

Again, not a huge amount of time to spend here so probably a stroll along the waterfront Corniche and a visit to the Souq Waqif and the Doha Fort for a history fix.

Adelaide

Im guessing that we are going to be quite exhausted by the time we arrive so itll just be taking things easy. The main thing here is going to visit Mitcham and as I was born and bred in Mitcham, Surrey so itll be nice for me to compare and contrast where I was born. 

If we were staying longer then Id take a trip out and possibly stay on Kangaroo Island but I think itd be a bit much to try and fit in.

Sydney

This will be fairly full on with typical tourist activities, Opera House, Bondi and other beaches etc. Luckily, weve even managed to book up a Sydney Bridge climb so really looking forward to that. We didnt think it would be available as it closed to new bookings, but a couple of weeks ago it opened up again!

Blue Mountains

Taking the train out of Sydney to arrive here for a couple of days and take in the sights.

3 Sisters, Echo Point, Jenolan caves, Wentworth falls and Scenic World, the steepest railway in the world amongst other attractions to see and do.

Cairns

Short stop before heading north but will take in the city and the Esplanade, boardwalk and lagoon.

Day trip on the Karunda Scenic Railway and the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.

Port Douglas

Main big ticket event will be a day snorkelling on The Great Barrier Reef but mainly relaxing and taking advantage of the free activities offered.

Adelaide

Back to Adelaide again at the end of the trip - if we havent cuddled a koala by this stage this is on the list before we leave!

Doha

Back to Doha again for a day so another chance to relax or visit those areas we didnt do earlier in the trip.

Stockholm

Were only here for a few hours so probably wont have any time at all!


So - that's the last update, just wishing away the days now before we head off.
