Why an Australian tour should be on your must-do list


“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it” – George Moore

What if we told you, some of the most remarkable treasures in the world are right here in your backyard? The only country that is also a continent, Australia is unique in more ways than can be counted on two hands.

You’d be lying if you said you knew everything there is to know about our spectacular nation. For instance, did you know the world’s oldest fossil was found in Western Australia or that the word ‘selfie’, now a legitimate entry in the Oxford Dictionary, was first used by an Aussie?

The time is ripe to undertake a handcrafted luxury Australia tour to explore this mighty continent and get to know your home better.


Western Australia – a snapshot of the country

A diverse land of arid outback, pink lakes, pristine beaches, thriving reefs, delicious wines and ancient rock carvings, West Australia makes up a third of the continent of Australia.

In El Questro, a cruise through the magnificent Chamberlain Gorge, a three kilometre waterhole, will reveal all the extraordinary wonders lurking in your backyard.

The curious metal sculptures at Lake Ballard are really something to see and the wines from the Margaret River vineyards are a true delight.

Northern Territory – oozing otherworldly charm

If you haven’t seen the Australian outback, have you really seen Australia at all? If driving a 4WD through hundreds of kilometres of desert landscape is not really your thing, then a tour through the outback certainly would be. Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is undoubtedly the most famous occupant of the Northern Territory.

Believed to be over 600 million years old, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is sacred to the Aboriginal people of the area. Northern Territory is a treasure trove of unique experiences, from a visit to the country’s biggest national park, Kakadu, to a camel ride across the red centre.

Top off your Australia tour with a ride on the famous and luxurious Ghan railway that will take you on a scenic adventure from Alice Springs to Darwin.

South Australia – delightful wine, wonderful wildlife

South Australia is blessed with some of the most diverse and remarkable wildlife, natural beauty and wine favouring climates in Australia.

This is your chance to sample some of the finest reds and whites at one of the country’s oldest wine producing regions, the Barossa Valley.

You will love the stunning beauty of Wilpena Pound, a natural amphitheatre set within the marvellous Flinders Ranges National Park. But the most spectacular wonder of South Australia lies about a 100 kilometres off the coast of Adelaide.

Take a trip to Kangaroo Island and be treated to an incredible collection of wildlife – sea lions, little penguins, migrating whales, wallabies, echidnas, kangaroos, koalas and more.

Tasmania – convict history and natural beauty

Nature, history, art, gastronomy, Tasmania is a perfect blend of it all.

While places like Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay and Cradle Mountain astound with their exquisite unspoiled beauty, convict sites like Port Arthur and Sarah Island shed light on the island’s grim past.

The island might no longer be known for its delicious apples, but it still offers the most lip-smacking variety of local produce, from cheese and honey to wine and whiskey.

The island is also one of the only places to witness rare wildlife like the feisty Tasmanian devil and the shy platypus.

Norfolk Island – warm hospitality and delicious food

A former British penal colony, Norfolk Island is rich in history, culture and natural beauty.

Though quite small, the island has its own unique language known as ‘Norfuk’, a combination of 18th century English and Tahitian.

Norfolk Island is well known for the warm and welcoming nature of its locals who would love to tell you more about their beloved home, including a ghost story or two.

Learn about the island’s harsh convict past through its historic prisons and museums and witness it’s unique flora and fauna on a leisurely stroll through the Norfolk Island National Park.
