The splendour that is Australia has something for everyone; vast desert landscapes, white sandy shores, world class wineries & trains – and an abundance of wildlife in its natural habitat
Get ready to turn your world upside down with our escorted tour to Australia as you discover a culture that has survived for generations in one of the world’s most unforgiving environments.
Huge and sparsely populated, Australia offers an incredible array of experiences for the discerning traveller. With landscapes as diverse as the barren stretches of the Red Centre and the lush woodlands of Atherton Tidelands, to cosmopolitan cityscapes with colonial origins, there is much to explore.
Australia is comprised of six states and three territories, all with their own unique, dynamic, cultures, and awe-inspiring landscapes. And with our Iconic Australia escorted tour you’ll get a tantalising taste of what this country has to offer. From Adelaide to Alice Springs, Ayers Rock to Cairns. You’ll get to drive along the Great Ocean Road of Melbourne and enjoy dining in style in Sydney Harbour.
Arriving in Adelaide you’re invited to spend time at Flinders Chase National Park, and discover the sanctuary for native Australian animals, as well as wine tasting at Barossa Valley and Jacobs Creek Winery.
Experience mother nature in all her wild glory from hikes and spellbinding sunsets to Ayers Rock, or Uluru, to cruises around the Great Barrier Reef where you can marvel at its kaleidoscopic brilliance. You’ll even enjoy a scenic cable car ride over the tropical rainforest of Kuranda.
Not to be outdone by nature’s wonders, on our Australia tour you’ll also get to see the manmade wonders of the Sydney Opera House, Cook’s Cottage – Australia’s oldest building, and the Gibson Steps – 86 steps that were carved into the face of a cliff, granting access to ‘the 12 Apostles’.
Traditionally, the best months for escorted tours to Australia are spring to summer (October to March). Warm and hot everywhere, the north tends to be more tropical, whilst the south sees mild nights and warm to hot days.
Our Iconic Australia escorted tour can be enjoyed year-round, however.
