Australia holidays

Put down your camera, throw away your guidebook and let Australia lead you on an adventure that will become as much a part of who you are as to where you go next. Australia holidays are your chance to find your own space and embrace flexibility whilst daring to be different as you explore a land that tugs at the heart strings and tickles the ribs just as readily as Dame Edna taking on the surf at Coolangatta.

Australia holidays, tailor made
Excellent with a lot of variety. All memorable, but perhaps going to Uluru and spending a week in Sydney over Christmas and new Year (more)Jan Baker
This is a fabulous place with great food and service. Lizzie and Shayne are so knowledgeable and passionate, it is really inspiring. We were surrounded by wildlife. We had breakfast with kangaroos grazing right in front of the window...It was brilliant, I wish I could do it all again. (more)Diane Bushell
From 5395 including UK flights
B&B self drive tour of Tasmania, meet the locals
The whole of Tasmania is just awesome; so every part of the travel is memorable. (more)Lim HunHo
It was a fantastic tour of the island, the memories from which we we will savour for the rest of our lives. (more)Sandra Mendenhall
From AU $950 - AU $2950 excluding flights
Uluru and the Olgas tour in Australia
Memorable parts? The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful. I've never met someone who could talk with such knowledge about geology, widlife, country lore. Tips? Camping was a bit basic but a wonderful experience - cooking over an open fire under a clear unpolluted night sky was simply ethereal. Local benefits? Yes. (more)Farida Parkyn
From 400 - 405 excluding flights
Great Ocean Walk holiday in Victoria, Australia
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
From AU $2595 - AU $2795 excluding flights
Melbourne to Adelaide 3 day tour, Australia
Memorable parts? Travelling along the Ocean Drive road and thanks to Pierre, our guide and driver, showing us places and providing loads of interesting information, which we would never have had doing the trip between Melbourne and Adelaide on our own. Tips? Local benefits? Certainly. All our stops were to local restaurants, hotels and a winery. Overall rating? A tremendous success, it was a small group, four of us and I thick I can say we all felt comfortable sharing... (more)Jane Jimenez
From AU $597.50 - AU $1395 excluding flights
Great Barrier Reef & Lizard Island cruise, Australia
Memorable parts? Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. Tips? Make the most of it. The food is excellent, the service is amazing and the snorkeling and diving are the best experience ever. Local benefits? I hope so. I would't have minded paying more if needed. Overall rating? One of the best experience of my life. (more)Isabelle Kerdranvat
From 1079 - 1135 excluding flights
Adelaide to Alice Springs tour, Australia
Memorable parts? The wonderful walks -- canyons, gorges, other natural features -- that revealed to us the natural riches of the Outback, from birds and other creatures to the land itself. Also... the bush knowledge and sensitivity of our leader, Steve. He added immeasurably to our appreciation, and therefore our pleasure. Tips? Probably more important for Europeans than Canadians or Americans (who live in big-scale countries): realize emotionally, not just intellectually, that once... (more)Penny Williams
From AU $2450 - AU $2495 excluding flights
Flinders Ranges wilderness tours, South Australia
Memorable parts? The Flinders is a very dramatic park and one that invites you get out and walk. Wilpena Pound is a rock fortress, a piece of land enclosed of each side by high cliffs with just one route in. Inside their are lovely walks through huge gums - its a very tranquil and relaxing place. Staying at Rawnsley Park, a working Merino Sheep Station, was a real treat. We stayed in one of the Eco Villas, and the highlight was lying in bed and pushing a button that withdrew a blind... (more)Justin Francis
From AU $495 - AU $1475 excluding flights
Kangaroo Island tours in Austrailia, 3 days 2 nights
Kangaroo Island was a very pleasant surprise. We enjoyed getting down close to a very windy and wild Southern Ocean, and walking on the beach at Sea Bay up close with the sea lions was a real highlight. But then again so was watching Koalas in the trees, and a walk out to the Remarkable rocks (these really are pretty remarkable when you get up close - the hardest granite you could possibly imagine smoothed like butter into strange shape over millions of years by the wind). We bought some of... (more)Justin Francis
From AU $2609 - AU $3725 excluding flights
Uluru & Kings Canyon holiday
Memorable parts? Meeting the traveling group and getting to know their travel history and sharing ours. Also, sunset at Uluru was fantastic. Tips? Consider a day before and after this trip in Alice Springs. Local benefits? Somewhat. There wasn't much interaction with the aboriginals as expected. The food preparation and camping was good for the environment. Overall rating? Great - first trip with this operator and set a great tone with us for consideration for future... (more)Takeaki Chijiiwa
From 515 excluding flights
Great Ocean Road and Grampians 3 day tour, Australia
Memorable parts? Having a very close encounter with a baby koala, rescued from the main road by our driver/guide Jeremy. Although his mum was up a tree nearby, after sitting at the bottom and thinking about it, he decided to head back towards the road, so we travellers blocked his path. He came right to my feet and sat down!! Very special moment I will never forget. Tips? We could only book a 2 day trip as we were leaving for Tasmania but the company was very accommodating and...
