Immense. Exciting. Extreme. Australia is always in technicolour.
The natural masterpiece of the Great Barrier Reef, the flame red earth of the barren Outback, the vast interior of cobalt skies slung low over deserted gorges. Although this is a vast and ancient land, modern Australia’s refined culture, fusion food, hip urban scene and iconic surf beaches are as big a draw as the landscapes. Strange wildlife, blinding-white beaches, dense rainforest and pristine tropical reefs all await.
Cruise in your private yacht around the myriad islands of The Whitsundays, Australia’s tropical paradise; land on hidden bays and lose a day trying out every conceivable watersport; dive the staggering Great Barrier Reef; explore Australia’s final frontier, Kimberley, and experience some of the most magnificent landscapes, rich flora and fauna, ancient cave paintings and most incredible anthropological history in the world; wander around Sydney, Australia’s oldest city, with a world-class gastronomic scene; get back to nature on Kangaroo Island; spend the afternoon absorbing the youthful energy of creative and cultured Melbourne; dive the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, a pristine wilderness, world-famous for huge, gentle, whale sharks; hike amongst pristine nature in Tasmania; dine outside at a beautifully laid table with Ayers Rock as your backdrop.
