Ultimate Australia: The Icons

There are so many amazing experiences to be had in Australia, so we figured it’s high time we handpicked our favorites 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-theater dinner and tickets to one of the world-class shows in the evening. The perfect beginning to your time down under.

Start Planning Here


After a few days in this sprawling subwaypolis, 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 color, 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.

Meet the Locals

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 private 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.


Next up, it’s the irresistible waters of Hamilton Island and the blissed-out luxury of Qualia. The unique positioning of this boutique hideaway, with its views over the stunning Whitsundays, will seduce even the most experienced luxury traveler. 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. Nothing will compare to soaring over the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef on your way back though. Allow your feet to come back down to earth back at Qualia, spending your last island moments floating in your private infinity pool, sailing catamarans and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of the Coral Sea, before waving your goodbyes to the reef and heading back down to New South Wales for one last bout of relaxation before flying home.

Wind Down at Wolgan

Two days amid the natural wilderness of Wolgan Valley is all you need to get you feeling ready and rested to return to the real world. Nestled deep within verdant landscapes, just a stone’s through from the iconic Blue Mountains, relax into these two days as you take a deep breath and make the most of your surroundings. Whether you explore on foot, horseback or bicycle, return each evening to a spa that will pamper you like never before and a restaurant which will tantalise your taste buds. With a private lodge to call your own, we wouldn’t be surprised if this inspires you to forget the daily grind altogether and stay here forever. But, sadly, all good things must come to an end. Wave farewell to the wallabies that bound on by as you board a helicopter back to Sydney for your flight back home.
