"I had a free day in Brisbane during my travels so I booked a day tour to Moreton Island with Travel Freedom. It was a nice relaxing day, and the snorkelling over there was awesome. I recommend the kayaking...they were clear and it was so cool! The booking process was easy and the tour was so cheap! Thanks to Travel Freedom for their help!"

Christopher Cooper (CAN)

"I wanted to visit Australia Zoo so I booked a package with Travel Freedom which included transfers from Brisbane. It was a dreamy day, and the wildlife was amazing! It was easy to book it on the Travel Freedom website, and they sent my confirmation quickly. Thanks to them I got to see the Irwins' zoo! Thanks guys."
