Australia

Australia possesses a powerful lure to travelers of all stripes. There is much to explore in this continent the size of America’s lower 48 states. From the Great Barrier Reef to the Outback, the rainforest to the Sydney Opera House, quirky locals to hopping marsupials — the country offers a bit of everything, and a few things found nowhere else. Fascinating local and aboriginal culture, kangaroos, koalas and other unique wildlife, incredible and diverse landscapes, Australia is perfect for travelers who want to do more than one thing, or perhaps, want to do something different than their travel companions.

The country offers endless mix-and-match possibilities from fine dining to far-off-the-beaten-path adventures. You can hit the highlights and blaze your own trail on the same trip. Or settle into the spa while your partner heads out for another day of excitement and exertion.

Have a look, see what catches your eye, then chat to the Down Under team to custom-create one of our Australia travel packages.
