Mardi Gras Offers All-Women Tours

Sydney’s iconic Mardi Gras is one of the most colorful LGBTI celebrations in the world. But the party doesn’t have to stop after it’s all over.


White water rafting after Mardi Gras


With the Festival running from February 7 to March 2, and with the world-famous Parade and Party on March 1, those heading Down Under for this brilliant bacchanal may be in need of some recovery time after all the sequins and glitter have fallen to the ground.

The good news for lesbians comes courtesy of gay-owned and operated tour group, Planetdwellers. The perfect ending to the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras long weekend comes in the form of a day of adventure and indulgence for women-only.

Start your recovery adventure with whitewater rafting at Sydney’s Olympic Games venue, followed by a sumptuous buffet lunch and relaxing spa experience at Australia’s only Villa Thalgo, the Parisian spa to the stars. At Villa Thalgo, you can relax in the therapy pools and steam rooms, wander through the lush gardens, or choose total indulgence with the optional spa treatments such as couples or singles massage, Hydrotherapy, facials, manicures, pedicures and more (advance booking required).

Planetdwellers offers a wide variety of tours and travel packages to suit any taste, covering Sydney’s beautiful surrounds including the majestic Blue Mountains, the wine country of the Hunter Valley and the unique Australian animal kingdom at the Featherdale Wildlife Park.

 “We are working with an amazing female guide to bring you this tour that will get the heart racing then relaxing,” said Mario Paez, co-founder of Planetdwellers. “There is no better time to experience Sydney and surrounds than in February and March each year during the biggest gay and lesbian event on the Australian – and perhaps the world’s – calendar.”

As the Official Tour Operator for the 2014 Sydney Mardi Gras, Planetdwellers is exceptionally qualified to ensure you attend the biggest events and parties, the hottest bars and restaurants, and experience the gay village atmosphere of the locals.
