Australia, we really do live in the lucky country. Our vast land continually provides us with authentic adventures and experiences.
We have a number of unique and exciting opportunities to explore right on our very own doorstep. Ever wanted to hike off-the-beaten track on foot across the red, dusty soil and discover a myriad of Australia’s Hidden Gems? Or, breathe in the fresh greenery of Kakadu National Park whilst trudging through the spectacular views and echoes of the wetland?
Well, we’ve discovered some enriching experiences where guests will come home imbued with lasting memories that will definitely last a lifetime.
The Northern Territory is mostly known for Kakadu National Park, full of breathtaking wetlands, crocodiles and postcard views, but guests on The Ultimate Territory Adventure in Style journey will also get to float round in crystal clear waterholes (without worrying about crocs), and admire the rare, ancient Dreamtime art of the Bininj and Mungguy people.
To the south and into the desert where the scenery dramatically changes, they will encounter the geological spectacle of the 36 mystical domes of the Kata Tjuṯa (the Olgas) – meaning many heads, and the largest monolith in the world Uluṟu. Topping it off will be sipping champagne at sunset, Aboriginal cultural experiences and off road adventuring.
Did you know that Tasmania has the world’s cleanest air? Did you know it would only be a 2.5hr drive from the mainland to Tassie – if there were a bridge, and did you know it is a destination of wild, beautiful landscapes, a temperate climate, wonderful food and wine and a rich history?
Tasmania is like no other when it comes to striking scenery and natural landscapes. The Bay of Fires named by Lonely Planet as the hottest travel destination in the world, is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Australia. Embark on an Aboriginal guided walk and cultural insight around the magnificent natural landscape of the Bay of Fires and Mt. William regions.
Freycinet National Park’s dramatic pink granite peaks and Wineglass Bay are Tassie’s most photographed spots, while Bruny Island is a must-do. Picture cute fairy penguins and fur seals, premium quality wine, home-made delights like fudge and truffles, berries, cheese and fresh oysters and you will understand why.
Over to the west coast’s laid back cities of Perth and Fremantle, plus the delicious wine region of Margaret River, guests on this itinerary will also get to take part in the latest craze to sweep the world – a selfie with a Quokka –now tagged as the world’s happiest animal.
You may not know it, but WA is full of history. The 19th century port of Fremantle features a colourful and eccentric streetscape reflective of the time. It’s a fun and lively spot, surrounded by scrumptious artisanal food, handcrafted beer, quirky shops, music and arts.
Busselton Jetty, the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere stretching almost 2km out to sea, is over 152 years old and guests will be taken back in time as they discover one of the first tourist towns in Australia.
Whales, wine, walks, wine, wildflowers and most importantly wine, what more could you want, except to indulge in some authentic bush tucker, indigenous culture, dramatic scenery and rugged coastlines.
