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 southern Australia.

The vast Outback, from the tranquil billabongs of the Top End to the endless crimson dunes of the Red Centre. Helicopter visits to the ancient sandstones of the Kimberley. Swimming with the dolphins of Barid Bay. Hikes through the bush in peaceful search of wallabies and kangaroos on Kangaroo Island. Secluded picnics by the waterfalls of the Daintree, the world’s oldest rain forest. The gourmet and wine allurements of the Barossa Valley. Snorkeling from a private island in the Great Barrier Reef. Horsebacking on a 500,000-acre cattle station. On the Tasmanian mainland, spend a couple of days in Freycinet National Park, Cradle Mountain, or the beach at Wineglass Bay. Individually tailored options are just about endless.
