Travel to Australia
From Vibrant Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef
Australia dazzles with its contrasting landscapes: the glistening, modern skyline of Sydney and the timeless mystique of Uluru; the pristine corals of the Great Barrier Reef and the arid expanse of the Outback. Unifying these contrasts is a people renowned for their stoic good humor and, increasingly, their remarkable diversity. A visit to Australia combines the convenience of modern amenities and spoken English with breathtaking scenery and an indigenous heritage stretching back for tens of thousands of years.
Sydney provides a natural hub for any Australian journey. This vibrant port offers a wealth of cultural attractions, none more famous than Sydney Opera House, which you explore on a special behind-the-scenes tour. With so much inhabited coastline, the beach looms large in the Australian psyche, and no visit to Sydney is complete without a stop at Bondi Beach - we can even arrange for private surfing lessons.
Away from the coasts lies the Outback, the parched desert that makes up the majority of the Australian continent. Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, rises from the flat plains of the Northern Territory with an otherworldly presence. Visit this extraordinary natural monument with A&K and enjoy a unique outdoor dinner nearby, followed by a night of stargazing. The Outback offers many opportunities for discovery of all kinds, ranging from wine tastings to a private Aboriginal concert.
Australia's natural splendors don't end there. The Great Barrier Reef offers some of the world's finest snorkeling and diving; Ningaloo Reef is one of the foremost spots for whale shark spotting; and the island of Tasmania is a multi-sport haven for hiking, boating and off-road riding.
