There are so many amazing experiences to be had in Australia, so we figured it’s high time we handpicked our favourites and combined them into one ultimate Aussie adventure. And that’s exactly what we did. With everything from city chic to wild wanderings, here’s a little taster to tease those travel taste buds…
Your first stop is one of Australia’s most iconic destinations; Sydney. Your first day here you’ll take at leisure, wandering wide-eyed around this beautiful city and taking time to recover from your long journey. When you’re feeling refreshed and invigorated after a nights rest in the luxurious Park Hyatt (in a stunning Opera View room, might we add) it’s time for you to enjoy a guided tour of the Opera House, learning about the inspiration behind the innovative architecture. Next, we’ll arrange a three-course pre-theatre dinner and tickets to one of the world class shows in the evening. The perfect beginning to your time down under.Read more
After a few days in this sprawling metropolis, we’re flying you to Uluru where you’ll be checked into a luxury tent at Longitude 131. Slap, bang in the middle of the country, as far away from anything as you can be, this is the perfect spot for some serious peace and quiet. The moment you step onto the red sand, you’ll be rendered speechless at the intensity of its colour, even more so when you lay eyes upon the rock formation itself. Gaze in wonderment upon the incredible moods of Uluru as it changes throughout the day from a golden hue to bronze and finally a glowing red as the sun sets. We’ll have you dining under the stars beside this giant cultural icon as a storyteller informs you of the stars and the associated tales and fables the Aboriginals have passed down for thousands of years. The clarity of the sky somewhere as remote as this area of the outback will have the stars and constellations twinkling with a piercing radiance. Trust us, you won’t have seen a night sky like this anywhere before.
From Ayers Rock it’s time to hop on a flight to Adelaide, where you’ll pick up a connection to the pristinely conserved Kangaroo Island. We’ll book you a luxurious cliff-top suite at the in-demand Southern Ocean Lodge, where you will wake up to hear kangaroos and wallabies softly thumping through the nearby dunes, creatures you’ll get up close and personal with on a pre-arranged Kangaroo encounter.
Walking for miles on the 155kms of soft white sand beaches here is an absolute must, as is swimming in the clear turquoise waters, mountain biking over the dunes and kayaking out to sea. Expect total indulgence in your fresh, minimalistic suite, cutting-edge treatments in the enormous spa and uninterrupted views of the pink and purple sunsets from your curved sunken lounge. Bliss.
Finishing this ultimate Australian trip off with a couple of days on Hamilton Island is essential, so we’ll fly you down via Sydney to this stunning destination where you’ll be staying at Qualia. The unique positioning of this boutique hideaway, with its views over the stunning Whitsundays, will seduce even the most experienced luxury traveller. From Hamilton Island we’ll have you depart on a scenic flight to Whitehaven Beach where you’ll enjoy a private picnic and spend hours ogling at the sheer beauty of this stretch of sand along Whitsunday Island. When you’re back on Hamilton, spend your last island moments floating in your private infinity pool, sailing catamarans, windsurfing, snorkelling, scuba diving and water-skiing in the crystal clear waters of the Coral Sea, before waving your goodbyes to the reef and heading home with some incredible stories and even more amazing photos (if you remembered your underwater camera, that is).
