“Australia is a phenomenally beautiful country, and every time I go away and come back, it never ceases to amaze me.”   David Wenham

Every time I talk to someone who has visited Australia, all I hear are rave reviews! Some describe their amazing experiences in Sydney discovering the wonderful arts, architecture, and food. Others have sailed the Whitsundays visiting some of the top ranked beaches and islands in the world. In fact, I just had a friend who did a split trip with her husband: he chose to dive the Great Barrier reef during his half and she chose to explore the wine region during her half. With so much to offer, what’s not to love?

At the Wordy Traveler we love all of our subscribers - a community of people who value giving back! There are so many subscription boxes to choose from and we understand and appreciate your investment in a Wordy Traveler subscription. You are truly making the world a better place one book at a time. As you know, your continuing subscription helps provide women and children around the world access to education and healthcare.

For our Australia box you will be supporting three additional charities that all seek to help this amazing country and the people within it. 

The first is Save The Koala campaign by the Australian Koala Foundation. “The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) is the principal non-profit, non-government organization dedicated to the conservation and effective management of the wild koala and its habitat.”

The second charity is the Indigenous Literary Foundation who “aims to reduce the disadvantage experienced by children in remote Indigenous communities across Australia, by lifting literacy levels and instilling a lifelong love of reading”

Our final charity this quarter is the Australian Marine Conservation Society. “The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is the voice for Australia's ocean wildlife. We are an independent charity, staffed by a committed group of professional and passionate scientists, educators and advocates who have defended Australia's oceans for over 50 years.”
