There’s something about the phrase ‘G’day’ that captures so much of the warmth, hospitality, and easy-going attitudes you’ll find everywhere in Australia.

This warmth isn’t a myth. Take our guides. Whether you’re exploring the street-art-splashed laneways of Melbourne, venturing beyond central Sydney, tasting your way around Byron Bay, or spotting wildlife around the campfire in Tasmania, you’ll come away feeling like you’ve made a friend for life. Their passions, and their enthusiasm for sharing them with you, are infectious.

Aside from diving into Australia’s unfathomable richness of landscapes — spanning desert to rainforest to mountains to reefs — you can take your pick from a compendium of activities curated by our specialists.

You might find yourself taking surf lessons from professionals, or snorkelling alongside whale sharks under the guidance of marine biologists. You could take a seaplane to a Michelin-starred restaurant on the edge of a national park, and be led straight to the cellar doors of the best boutique estates of Australia’s (many) winelands. You might even take a small-ship expedition cruise of the serrated Kimberley coast, a region so remote that parts still remain uncharted.

Our specialists will help you connect with Australia’s Aboriginal and Indigenous people, who remain the guardians of the oldest continuous culture on the planet. We’ve chosen experiences that are authentic, respectful, and responsible — whether you’re exploring rock-art galleries with your Kuku Yalanji guide in Queensland, or learning about traditional Koori bushtucker in New South Wales.

You might already have a version of Australia playing in your head, gathered nebulously from various TV and film representations — but we think you’ll find the real deal exceeds all expectations.

  • Seals at Seal Bay, Australia

    Exceptional Kangaroo Island

    Twelve thousand years ago Kangaroo Island was part of mainland Australia. The Ice Age and low sea levels allowed the Island to be populated with an amazing array of wildlife. Kangaroo Island’s plants and animals are now isolated and are clearly different from their mainland relatives.
