Additional excursions can be arranged upon request, such as a scenic flight over the Great Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles.

Next, fly to Tasmania, an island of dramatic mountains, abundant native wildlife, and small farms and villages with artisanal food and wine producers. Enjoy introductory touring in the historic center of Hobart, Australia’s second-oldest town. Then, continue to Saffire Freycinet for several nights at Tasmania’s most luxurious lodge, with views of the water and beautiful Freycinet National Park. Enjoy activities such as nature walks, wine tasting, visiting an oyster farm, cooking lessons, kayaking, fishing, seeing Tasmanian devils, bird-watching, archery, mountain biking and stargazing.

During private touring, enjoy private tastings at top wineries, as well as lunch at a leading wine estate. Also stroll through the area’s historic towns and sample artisanal local food products.

Next, venture to unforgettable Kangaroo Island, a haven of natural beauty and native animals. Stay at award-winning Southern Ocean Lodge, a luxurious modern lodge with clifftop views of the water. During private touring with your own naturalist guide, look for some of Australia’s most charismatic animals in their natural habitats, such as koalas in gum trees, wallabies and kangaroos in the bush, and fur seal and sea lion colonies along the beautiful coast. Also explore unusual rock formations, learn about the history of the island, meet interesting local people or opt for scenic hikes.

End in Sydney, Australia's most beautiful city.
