Escape into the outback

Although its remoteness makes it an exotic destination, it is rather the unique wildlife, dramatic and serene landscapes, ancient indigenous culture and cosmopolitan cities, that makes the island continent irresistible to travellers.

Share a memorable journey with us as we take you through the Northern Territory and Western Australia, stopping at intriguing destinations such as the rugged mountains of the Kimberley region, the exceptional vineyards of Margaret River and the iconic heart of Australia, Uluru (Ayers Rock).

As a guest, you can look forward to our all-inclusive 5-star service, which extends to transfers, porterage, hotel stays and tipping and gratuities. During your daily activities you will be assisted by our Tour Director, who will ensure that all of your individual needs are considered. And in the evening you will return to several of the country’s finest hotels and resorts, including the 5-star Sails in the Desert overlooking Uluru and the award-winning Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa in Broome.

Destinations to discover

Our journeys take you through some of Australia’s most sought-after regions, from the dramatic rock formations in the Kimberley to the spectacular Western Australian coast, and from Kakadu National Park’s gorges to the sweeping deserts of Alice Springs.

Our itineraries in the Kimberley region showcase the expansive wilderness of the Australian landscape, taking you from the nation’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Argyle, to the pristine beaches of Broome. Along the way, you will cruise the Ord River, explore the rugged rocks of the El Questro Wilderness Park, visit the impressive Boab Prison Tree and view a range of animals, such as the sawfish, stingrays and freshwater crocodiles in the Geikie Gorge. Adventurous guests may also decide to take a scenic flight over the unique orange and black sandstone structures in the Bungle Bungle Range, which is available at an additional cost.

If you venture on a journey further south with us, you will have the opportunity to view the exquisite Western Australian coast from Broome to Perth. Observing the ancient gorges and magnificent waterfalls in the Karijini National Park, cruising over the Ningaloo Reef in a glass-bottom boat and touring the Pinnacles are several experiences to look forward to in this region.

Our south west itineraries take you even further south, to the vineyards of Margaret River and the coastal towns of Albany and Esperance. On these journeys, you will view the Gloucester Tree, which stands 61 metres tall, the gold rush sites in Kalgoorlie and one of Australia’s icons, Wave Rock.

Our tours in the Northern Territory are equally appealing, with featured destinations such as Uluru and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). Join us as for included cruises on Yellow Water Billabong and Katherine Gorge, a tour of Kings Canyon and an exploration of Australia’s mysterious desert.

Cultural experiences

Australia offers fascinating cultural insights, with an ancient history spanning some 40,000 to 60,000 years. Our Scenic Enrich program will allow you to experience the unique customs and way of life of the Australian indigenous people, taking you to a local community school in Yiyili and to the artwork and spiritual sites in the Kakadu National Park. You will also have an opportunity to hear a traditional land owner’s outback stories over billy tea and damper at Kelly’s Ranch.

With our wide range of Scenic FreeChoice options available, you are sure to find activities that suit your individual needs. Why not visit the mob of 25 kangaroos in the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, take a cruise on the Adelaide River to view the jumping crocodiles or simply unwind listening to the sounds of the didgeridoo in Monkey Mia?
