Days 1 — 4

Barossa Valley wine

Arriving into Adelaide, you’ll be met and driven north to the Barossa’s Eden Valley wine region. Your home for the next three nights is Hutton Vale Farm. Set surrounded an idyllic pastoral landscape of rolling hills, woodland and historic vineyards – only the appearance of kangaroos between the vines give away that you're in Australia, as will the incredibly warm welcome of your hosts.

Outback conservation at Arkaba

On a scenic drive north inland, the landscape dries as you enter the spectacular Flinders Range, classic ‘Outback’ country. You’ll be staying at one of the most exclusive properties in Australia with all 24,000 hectares of the private Arkaba Conservancy shared with no more than ten guests staying in the beautifully restored 1850s homestead.

Days 7 — 9

Explore Melbourne

Take a scenic light aircraft back to Adelaide for your flight east. Melbourne is Australia’s creative and cultural centre, a laidback cosmopolitan place that is very much the modern face of the nation. Divided by the snaking Yarra River before it feeds into Port Phillip Bay, its blend of cutting-edge and grand Victorian architecture, bustling laneways and world-class restaurants, thriving nightlife and green spaces all make it a city the locals are proud of.

Days 11 — 15

Luxury meets adventure on Tasmania

The island state of Tasmania sits 240km off the mainland. Rugged mountains at its heart – snowcapped in the winter – slope down through lakes, forests and bushland to a coastline of sweeping sandy bays and rocky cliffs. A haven for lovers of the outdoors where adventure abounds alongside endemic wildlife and delectable fresh produce.
