You Don’t Have to be on Oprah to Visit Australia

In case you missed Oprah's premier show this past week kicking off her Farewell Season, it's all over the news - Oprah's biggest give away ever. On the first show of her last season she surprised her audience by announcing that she was taking all of them on a trip to Australia. If you just happened to not be in her audience that day, guess what - you, too, can take a trip to Australia - anyway. There are many great timeshare exchanges available all over that wonderful country, and some timeshare rentals, too.

For the premier of Oprah's 25th - and final - season, she gathered 300 of what her producers called her "Ultimate Viewers," and surprised them with the announcement that they were each receiving an 8-day trip to the Land Downunder. With airline pilot John Travolta no less.

Apparently, Oprah’s fans aren’t the only ones getting all excited about their trip to Australia. Reuters reports that the Australian Minister of Tourism, Martin Ferguson, will be spending almost $3 million to bring the show to the country, a move which he hopes will increase tourism. "Oprah is a household name and her star power has the potential to lift Australia's profile as a premier tourist destination,” said Ferguson.

Aussies have waited years for another tourism boon akin to the one Paul Hogan and "Crocodile Dundee" triggered, declared John Brown, Australia's former tourism minister. "If the worldwide publicity that Oprah will bring to Australia does what I think, the benefits will be something you couldn't buy."

So pack your bags, start practicing your Aussie accent, and plan a great timeshare vacation in a country that offers more diversity than you can imagine. From tropical rain forests and surfing beaches to barren deserts and the world's most amazing barrier reef, Australia offers something for everyone. Even its animal population, from bouncing kangaroos to cuddly Koalas, is wonderfully unique.

There are some great timeshare exchanges available at the Tiki Village International resort in Surfer's Paradise, and the Beachcomber International Resort in Coolangatta, both in Queensland. The Shearwater Country Club is where you can get timeshare exchanges in fascinating Tasmania. Or check out the beaches along the Indian Ocean in Western Australia with a timeshare exchange at the Silver Sands Resort in Mandurah.

Wherever in this vast, exciting country you take your Australia timeshare vacation, get ready for a real "fair dinkim" time!
