Tour of the Week: Mardi Gras, Aussie-style

Originally published in GPS.OutTraveler.com

Australia makes for an incredibly exciting and exotic escape for Americans, especially those experiencing the last throes of winter, which in the southern hemisphere is actually summer.

In 2011 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras takes place in early March, the perfect time to plan a visit during what is considered the largest LGBT gathering on the planet. One way of attending Mardi Gras in style and without the fuss of all that pesky individual trip planning, is by placing yourself in the assiduous care of an a gay tour expert.

Steele Luxury Travel — known for their Mykonos villa escapes, Life Ball exclusives, and last year’s inaugural Milk & Honey Israel excursion — recently announced their newest group trip called Bondi Bliss, March 1-10, 2011, which includes Sydney Mardi Gras, Hamilton Island, and the Gold Coast. The group will spend the final two days at the luxe Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast, considered the Miami Beach of Australia.
