Next week’s one-day event features a virtual reality tour of Australia. Haven’t tried virtual reality yet? Prepare to have your mind blown by the experience - and by what Australia looks like. The country has some of the world’s most glittering coastlines, crystal clear waters and culturally vibrant cities. Seriously, there’s something for everyone in Australia, whether you want to trek the rugged landscape or sit on the beach with a glass of Chardonnay in hand.

Plus, get a chance to talk to Australian travel experts. Every traveler knows that no amount of Googling is as good as one 5-minute conversation with a local. At this event, there will be a handful of travel experts who will tell you about the secret parts of the country you need to see… (And if you want to start your research now, Tourism Australia’s website is the best place to start).

Get an actual taste of Australian cuisine at this event, too. A flat-white coffee service will take place between 11am-6pm, then a tasting of Australian wines from 6-9pm. Australia makes some of the world’s most celebrated wine, and their brunch game is top notch. This is your chance to find out about the best way to eat your way through the country if that's your preferred way to travel.

Finally, you’ll get to see Australia through the eyes of Canadian travelers. This event doubles as a photo exhibit of all the stunning views of Australia as Canadian photographers have seen it. Let these breath-taking images be the backdrop to your excited conversation about booking your trip. After all, there's nothing like Australia. Just ask anyone who's been.
