Following her appointment as a brand ambassador of Australia Tourism, Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra will soon visit the country. During her tour, she will explore its aquatic and coastal experiences, rugged outback, unique wildlife and its incredible variety of food and wine offering. “I have been to the Kangaroo country only once before, and that was last year,” she says. “But there is so much more to explore that one trip is not enough.”
Being a lover of nature and adventure, Chopra’s trip will include Brisbane, Gold Coast and Ayers Rock. Well, that’s where all the action is. Obviously, she is excited. You will too when you know what she’s up for.
She will go on a whale watching cruise
This is something she isn’t likely to forget in a hurry: The encounters with humpback whales are a delightful affair, even as she is treated to a gourmet lunch while on a magnificent catamaran. Australia has some of the world’s best whale watching destinations. En route, she will also ‘meet and greet’ a few dolphins.
270 m up in the air, 360 degree views
SkyPoint Climb is a must-do Gold Coast adventure, lasting 90 minutes from the beginning to the end. From the top of Queensland’s most recognised land marks – the iconic Q1 Resort Building – she will enjoy awe-inspiring 360 degree views of the Gold Coast and beyond. Rising 270 m into the air, the SkyPoint Climb is Australia’s highest external building climb.
Helicopter flight over the Ayers Rock (Uluru)
Our actor will also enjoy spectacular views from aboard a helicopter as she flies over Australia’s Red Centre that has Uluru (Ayers Rock) as a landmark. The rides are normally 15 to 30-minutes, but who knows, she may go for an extended flight! Commentary about these sacred Aboriginal sites will keep her informed, even as the pilot tells her about the region’s Geology. Prior to boarding, her pilot will provide a safety briefing and hand out radio headsets that permit two-way communications during the flight. Oh, there are multiple photo ops and we are dying to see them once she is back. Don’t forget to Instagram, Pareenita. FB live too, please!
The babe and the biker: Harley Davidson it is!
Pareenita’s adventures don’t end there. For soon, she will be donning a leather jacket and helmet and set off for a ride on the iconic motorcycle from Brisbane into the surrounding countryside. She is likely to ride pillion, her hair flying in the wind, passing by rural towns and mountains with fabulous views along the way. That too in the company of a motorcycle dude. These Harleys are equipped with high backrests, comfy seats and running boards for the feet. During her ride she will also get to experience a range of different styles – from cruising down the freeway to taking corners on winding hilly roads and riding through quaint country towns. We are sure she will have loads to tell about her ride with a biker.
Yes, during her tour, Chopra will also find out about her connection with the world’s oldest living culture which Aboriginal Australians have passed it down for at least 50,000 years – through art, dance, myths, music and the land itself. She may head out to the outback and listen to myths of creation by the campfire. She may also go for bushwalks, or learn to craft spears and catch fish in the traditional way.
And this one is truly wow!
This is sure to be one of Chopra’s best experiences. Right there in the Red Centre of Australia, she will be taken to this award-winning installation called Field of Light by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro. As darkness falls and Uluru is thrown into silhouette, field of light illuminates. As far as the eye can see gentle rhythms of colour light up the desert. The exhibition, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres, spread across an area the size of seven football fields. Pathways draw viewers into the installation, which comes to life under a sky brilliant with stars.
No wonder, our missy is so kicked about her Australia tour!
