If you're still riding that James Bond high, you need to get your butt to Australia STAT. Travelers who shack up at the uberposh Palazzo Versace in Australia's Gold Coast will get the chance to train as a secret agent with the hotel's new package. Yes, plan on getting your hands a little dirty but don't fear: there will not be real assassins trying to push you off a train/bridge/car/airplane (or so we've heard!).

Palazzo Versace Gold Coast has partnered with Oz's Gold Coast and Stunt Academy to introduce the unique Spy School. Guests will be whisked away to tackle a day full of action-packed adventures that starts with a helicopter stunt ride to a remote island location. Then, guests will be picked up by a jet boat for a thrilling ride to an obstacle course. Once there, they will be trained in unarmed combat, firearms handling and, most importantly, stealth.

The reward for an exhilarating, high-rolling/gun-slinging/karate-chopping day? Not exactly Miss Congeniality but you do get to return home in a limousine filled with cocktails (shaken, not stirred, obs).

The Stunt Academy is currently offering a special for AUD $299 ($315) — pricing is based on number of people and activities, with a minimum of two participants required.

Rates at Palazzo Versace begin at $500 per night.

Wow, this really looks super cool and exciting! If you are already at Gold Coast and have some spare cash (not some, but quite a lot actually) then why not take up this challenge. Even though you will not be on TV, but at least you will get to experience an adventure quite close to the real deal that the Bond series have portrayed on film. It is definitely not an opportunity to be missed if you are into adventure and special effects.
