Luxury Australia Itinerary

Australia: Grandeur Down Under

Australia is a vast island, country, and continent surrounded by the Indian, Pacific, and Southern oceans. The world’s sixth largest country, it has a landmass of almost eight million square kilometres and 34,000kms of coastline

This sheer size, as well as the diversity of its awe-inspiring sights, its people and culture, make Australia a must-visit destination like nowhere else on Earth. Home to often surreal and always breathtaking landscapes, Australia boasts stunning beaches, reefs and islands, lush rainforests, snowy mountain ranges and some of the finest wine regions on the planet. And then there’s The Outback, a vast and sunburnt terrain covering much of the country’s colossal interior

But of course, this immense island is also home to some incredibly cosmopolitan and culturally progressive cities. From Sydney’s beach life and architectural highlights to Melbourne’s cool bars and art scene – food, film and festivals are big on Australians’ agenda.  

While our Australia itinerary explores the north-east of Australia, moving from the Northern Territory down through Queensland, it’s also a great launching point if you’re thinking of visiting other parts of the country.  

Starting in Darwin for private guided tours of Litchfield and Kakadu national parks, you’ll then join a safari to discover the spectacular natural scenery of Arnhem Land. You’ll head to Queensland for the latter part of the trip to explore the Daintree National Park from every perspective – breathtaking scenic flights, forest hikes with local Aboriginal guides, and floating through its stunning waterways, swimming, snorkelling, canoeing and fishing.
