Australia & Tasmania

Famously easygoing, exotic, and gorgeous

Mark Twain summed up this continent as "full of surprises and adventures, and incongruities and incredulities." Our travelers sup on a hearty stew of Outback adventure and close-ups with nature’s incredulities, all served up with Down Under hospitality and perhaps washed down with Australia’s alluring wines. We tramp through its wildest wildernesses, peacefully pursue kangaroos and wallabies, explore  sheep stations, swim with dolphins near cliffy shores, and savor the massive solitude of Australia.

Australia with GeoEx

The vast Outback is a revelation to explore, from the tranquil billabongs of the Top End to the endless crimson dunes of the Red Centre. We're here to help you navigate the vast options and to orchestrate a Custom Trip that suits you perfectly. Some enticing ideas: helicopter visits to the ancient sandstones of the Kimberley; swimming with the dolphins of Barid Bay; hikes through the bush on Kangaroo Island; secluded picnics by the waterfalls of Daintree (the world’s oldest rain forest); gourmet food and wine allurements of the Barossa Valley; snorkeling from a private island in the Great Barrier Reef; horseback riding on a 500,000-acre cattle station, and getting to know Arnhem Land, where some 20,000 aboriginal people live and to which GeoEx has rare access. You also may venture to the island state of Tasmania to spend some time amid the spectacular sceneries of Freycinet National Park, Cradle Mountain, and Wineglass Bay (home to one of the world's top beaches). And then there's Sydney, of the world’s most hospitable, comfortable, and interesting metropolises, which deserves a good look. Individually tailored options are just about endless.
