Mark and David's verdict
Many people dream of visiting Australia, but the sheer size of the country can be daunting. You need expert advice to plan a trip tailored to your own requirements, budget and available time, whether that includes beaches, the Outback, Aboriginal culture or vineyard tours - or a bit of everything.

Planning a trip to Australia but not sure where to start? You’ve come to the right place.

  • Innovative itineraries
  • Wide choice of hotels
  • Stopover options

The sheer vastness of Australia can be overwhelming, but our expert team will put together the perfect trip for you to ensure you make the best use of your available time. It might be a beach idyll, city life, the vast wilderness and aboriginal culture, tropical rainforest, wine country or scenic mountains.

We work with all the major airlines and our experts can source the best prices, the most convenient routes and all the most exciting stopovers.

Our Australia fly-drives range from one to two weeks or longer with options to bolt together different itineraries. Take your time as you travel from Sydney to Melbourne or hit Western Australia on our circular fly-drive from Perth through the Margaret River region, with its matchless wineries, and the coast, including the dolphins at Rockingham and William Bay National Park.

Our multi-centre holidays mean you can combine several states in one amazing holiday, flying from point to point. In one trip you can take in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Kangaroo Island, Ayers Rock and the Great Barrier Reef.

Other options include rail holidays, using Australia’s renowned network of efficient and comfortable trains (including the iconic Ghan), and on our cruise holidays you can combine Australia and New Zealand or the Far East.
