  • This 13-day south Australia holiday includes some of Australia’s most sought after backdrops, without spending the entire trip in transit. 
  • Sydney is the most common entry point to Australia and home to the country’s most iconic structures - the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. We recommend exploring these landmarks with our excellent guides, in addition to learning the Aboriginal history of the region and a full day spent exploring the Blue Mountains. Make your base at the newly-owned Capella Hotel, a historical icon lovingly re-imagined into a modern gem.
  • Continue to Kangaroo Island, widely acclaimed as Australia’s Galapagos, to explore a spectacular and thriving landscape, rich with diverse wildlife. Spend two full days with a naturalist guide, exploring the island and all of its splendor from Seal Bay to Flinders Chase National Park to the fruitful farmlands. Return to your luxury accommodation to soak in the majesty of the southern ocean.
  • Remote yet accessible, the Flinders Ranges is South Australia’s largest mountain range, boasting an ochre colored earth and a pure (polished) Outback experience. 
  • The Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s largest wine-producing regions and the perfect, most indulgent way to end your journey.
