Australia

Iconic cities, awe-inspiring outback and everything in between

For some, it’s the nature — kangaroos bounding through vineyards or hundred-strong shoals swarming around kaleidoscopic coral on the Great Barrier Reef. For others, it’s the big open spaces — vast outback, ruggedly ancient rock formations and long, empty white-sand beaches. Some may hone in on the coffee, food and wine, others the chance to see the world from a very different perspective with indigenous cultural experiences.

Diversity of landscape, adventure and a sense of freedom are Australia’s lures, but the infrastructure is strong, the stories are fascinating and indulgence is always an option. Big experiences with low stress are what Australia is all about.
