Hey Australia, Here We Come!

Here's our guide to exploring Australia unlike ever before, where you take the paths less travelled, to areas unknown and embrace a new and gentler way of travelling.

Indigenous experiences

Australia offers an abundant array of cultural experiences to suit every traveller. And one of the most engaging experiences is Indigenous Australia, learning from the world's 'oldest living cultures' that dates back 50,000 years. 

Former chair of Indigenous Tourism Australia and Gumbaynggirr man, Dr. Aden Ridgeway states

'Aboriginal culture starts with its people. Aboriginal guides open a door into a world that many people don't know still exists. A world where past, present and future meet. There's nothing more exciting for a traveller than a totally new experience' (source)

You can find many indigenous experiences all around Australia from city tours, urban festivals, to remote Central Australia and the Kimberley.

Culture, food and wine

For foodie explorers, there are many food and wine experiences often within the driving range of most major cities. Think locally picked fresh produce coupled with wine straight from the cellar door in the Barossa Valley near Adelaide, Margaret River near Perth, Hunter Valley near Sydney and many vineyards around Hobart and Launceston.

Small group tours with leading Australian travel companies

Be reassured that health and social distancing measures are top priority wherever you choose to go. From contactless check-in, sanitation, small group tours and other health mitigation actions, travel in Australia will adhere to guidelines to keep us safe. 

Check out all-new Australian tours with award-winning boutique tour company Crooked Compass, highly regarded for their authentic international tours and immersive style of journeys off the beaten track. Each group tour will be designed to take you on paths less travelled, awakening your senses to explore amazing lesser-known areas of Australia.

From the northern frontier of the Torres Strait Island and Remote Reef, East Arnhem Land and Wessel Island, trekking in Queensland or short 4 day getaway to Eyre Peninsular. Group sizes range from 4 to 12 people on every trip or choose an option for a private departure (Click for our suggestions)

Hiking and walking

Why not go completely off-grid with unique Australian hiking and walking tours. One of the most exciting new guided walks is The Scenic Rim, taking you on trails through Main Range National Park and world heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest. Only an hour and a half from Brisbane and hosted by Spicers Retreat, each small group tour is fully guided, all-inclusive with 2, 3, 5 and 7 day walks and clamping each night.

Luxury tour company Abercrombie & Kent also offer several Australian experiences both as set departures and private bookings.

Legendary train journeys can take you from east to west, north to south, and back again.
