This favourite rugby touring destination looks set to offer an epic adventure to those who join the Gullivers' Lions pride.
Unique Sights, Amazing Atmosphere
The British & Irish Lions head down under in June 2013 to what is considered a must-see destination for both rugby fans and players alike. Not only are the Australians passionate about the sport and therefore the atmosphere is sure to be lively, away from the stadiums there are also unique sights to explore such as the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Official Agent, Exclusive Events
Gullivers Sports Travel is an Official Agent of Lions Rugby Travel for the Lions Tour. Its wide variety of official fully escorted tours to Australia include packages to watch all three Tests, two Tests and longer tours to take in provincial matches. As well as stays in Australia's top destinations, Gullivers tours feature exclusive social events, such as its Wine Day in Melbourne, Big Pubs and Rugby Forums with ex-International rugby players. Gullivers is also offering the unique opportunity to watch The Lions play The Barbarians in Hong Kong.
Alister Strahan, General Manager of Gullivers Sports Travel, said: "We have a long history with the British & Irish Lions and as an Official Agent of Lions Rugby Travel, we are delighted to provide Lions supporters with official travel and match tickets.
As well as the knowledgeable tour managers and security that booking with a protected tour operator brings, travelling with Gullivers gives access to exclusive events, diverse itineraries and camaraderie amongst fellow fans that is second to none.
This Test series is all about pride. We were there when The Lions last beat Australia in 1989 and the winning atmosphere was electric - hopefully the team will be on top form once more to give us a tour to remember."
