NATURE

Australia’s breakaway from the super continent Gondwana more than 100 million years ago created a unique evolutionary path that resulted in myriad experiences, sights and sounds you won’t find anywhere else.

The biodiversity and ecosystems of the country’s many distinct wilderness areas are global beacons for travellers looking to see and experience something out of the ordinary. We take you there.

Come with us to the unparalleled Kakadu National Park, the jaw-dropping beauty of the remote Kimberley, Ningaloo Reef and its amazing whale sharks, the grandeur of the stirring red centre, and further beyond.

INDIGENOUS

For more than 40,000 years, the Indigenous people of Australia lived in harmony with the continent’s many diverse landforms and climates, utilising sophisticated tools and hunting techniques to adapt to the varied environments.

With complex social structures, more than 250 languages and a deep spirituality embodied in ‘the dreaming’, understanding more about this fascinating ancient culture is a powerful attraction for curious travellers worldwide.

In the red centre of Australia, one of the most important spiritual sites to Indigenous Australians, Uluru, is also the focal point for our journeys of discovery.
