Australia - tailor made trips, cruises and guided tours

Australia has been our no.1 destination since the world opened up again properly in 2023 but with so much to see over such an enormous area, how do you decide where to visit and how? Here's a few ideas to get started.

Tailor Made Holidays

Just let us know what your interest are, such as wildlife, cities, water sports etc, and any places you'd particularly like to visit, and we'd be delighted to put together a fully costed tailor made itinerary for you.

Road sign, Australia

We can include almost everything - flights, hotels, car hire, trains, excursions, cruises, mini-tours, internal flights, day trips, and more. 

If you're unsure about exactly what you might want to see, then as a starting point we can suggest an off the shelf itinerary which you can then tweak as much as you like until it's right for you and fits your budget. We can add stopovers, usually in the Far East or Dubai if you'd like to break the journey.

Cruises

Sydney, Australia

Cruises are a fantastic way to see much of Australia without having to pack and unpack at every destination, and as all meals are usually included, they can be excellent value for money. Many combine parts of Australia with other countries, so you could also be enjoying some time in Bali or New Zealand.

As an example, Celebrity Cruises have a 13 night cruise that starts in Singapore and sails first to Darwin, then around the coast to Sydney with stops at Port Douglas and Airlie Beach.

Silversea have a Melbourne to Singapore itinerary that goes the other way round, via Adelaide and Western Australia, and this can easily be combined with a few days in Sydney beforehand.

My Own Trip

There were a few things that I really wanted to fit in - the problem was, they were all in completely different areas of this vast country! We were actually going for the Ashes series cricket, and the Adelaide Test was on at the same time as our visit, so Adelaide was in. And just off the coast is what's known as 'mini Galapagos' - Kangaroo Island - wonderful wildlife including wallaby, kangaroo, koala bears, dolphins, fur seals, sea lions, all of which you have an excellent chance of seeing.

Ayers Rock and the Red Centre was in too - I especially wanted to do the 'Sounds of Silence Dinner' where you get an brilliant view of the night sky, as well as see the rock at sunset.

The easy way to get between Ayers Rock and Adelaide is to fly, but there is a much more exciting way - by train! The Ghan makes its way between Darwin and Adelaide via Alice Springs, so we had to drive from Ayers Rock to Alice Springs to pick up the train - it looks a tiny distance on the map, but is actually a 5 hour drive through the outback. The train itself is a wonderful experience, you have a night on board and take dinner in the dining car.

The other two places on out itinerary was Perth (for visiting relatives) and Sydney. North of Perth is the bizarre Pinnacles Forest, and from there we drove to to Monkey Mia to see the dolphins up close. You get a sense of how Australia really is - on the drive up north we hardly saw another vehicle for hours.

Naturally Sydney was also a must see place, although we just had a couple of nights to see the main sights. So the overall itinerary was Perth - Ayers Rock - Alice Springs - Adelaide - Sydney.
