But over the years, Malaysians have come to assume that they've seen and heard enough about Australia. With many of us having been to Australia at least once before, we tend to assume that we're well-informed on the Land Down Under, and that there's nothing else worth exploring after a couple visits.

But there's actually so much more to Australia, just waiting to be discovered!

Sedunia Travel has partnered up with Tourism Australia to show Malaysians that it's time to to try something new and go beyond the iconic experiences in Australia.

In keeping with their offerings of personalised services, Sedunia Travel has come up with some cool Australian tour packages. These specifically tailored tour packages will allow both first-time and returning visitors to Undiscover Australia like never before!

You'll definitely be missing out on so much if you think that the Outback only has vast stretches of flat land and red dirt. You can do all kinds of unique things there including riding a segway around the base of Uluru, taking gorgeous photos at the Field of Light, and enjoying a fine dining experience under the stars.
