ICONIC AUSTRALIA

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

Australia is comprised of six states and three territories, all with their own unique, modern and dynamic, contemporary culture and awe-inspiring landscapes. 

The cosmopolitan state capital of Adelaide in South Australia contrasts that of Kangaroo Island, a sanctuary for native wildlife surrounded by bush cloaked national parks.

Arguably Australia’s most recognisable and fascinating icon, is the monolithic size, presence and inherent spirituality of Uluru (Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territory which stands 348 metres high. 

Queensland’s clear waters are home to the Great Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage site as well as Kuranda National Park, a tropical forest part of UNESCO’s Wet Tropics World Heritage area.

Melbourne, the metropolitan capital of Victoria boasts grand Victorian architecture evident in buildings such as Flinders Street Station and the Royal Exhibition Building.

Sydney the state capital of New South Wales is home to the iconic Sydney Opera House, a UNESCO World Heritage site hailed as ‘one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity’.

Embark on one of the world’s truly great journeys as you travel deep into the heart of Australia, whilst enjoying renowned wineries and authentic cuisine. Truly a once in a lifetime journey!
