A vast and wide landscape dotted with sparkling cities, natural wonders, ancient folklore, and endless skies; Australia is the perfect spot to start a new life together or to celebrate one well-lived. This romantic adventure wraps up the country’s grandest delights and ties them together with a luxurious ribbon.

Begin the adventure on a suitably regal note in Sydney, Australia’s largest (and arguably most luxurious) city. First, step under the sails of one of the world’s architectural marvels on a privately guided tour of the Sydney Opera House, where a skilled guide will explain the iconic landmark’s challenging birth and incredible legacy. Next, tour the city in style with the help of a private guide and driver equipped with a vintage 1964 Holden sedan for a tour of the vibrant inner-city enclave of The Rocks before soaking up the sun along three of Sydney’s iconic beaches – Bronte, Tamarama, and Bondi – en route to the eucalyptus-scented Sydney Harbour National Park and a secluded beach with an unbeatable view of the skyline. Finally, bid farewell to Sydney in style on a luxurious cruise around its gorgeous harbor where, after taking in such sights as Woolloomooloo Bay, Point Piper, and other scenic spots, you’ll be delivered to a leisurely lunch at the Balmoral Public Dining Room before returning to the water to cruise around Middle Harbour.

The scene shifts from the big city to the big country where, after a flight deep into Australia’s wild Northern Territory bound for Uluru (Ayers Rock), the iconic monolith at the country’s heart. With a luxurious and romantic eco-retreat as your home base, you’ll learn the spiritual significance of Uluru and walk the incredible Kantju Gorge, hear folktales about the Walpa Gorge as you explore it with an expert guide, and marvel as the sun slips below the horizon and the night sky comes alive with stars. Finally, you’ll meet the massive rock itself on a life-altering encounter with Uluru itself at sunrise. ... Show More »

Some trips let you see the Great Barrier Reef. Others get you close to it. Few allow you to live on it. Yours does. From Uluru, you’ll head to the northern edge of the continent for Lizard Island; a tranquil award-winning resort getaway ringed with beautiful reefs and immaculate white-sand beaches. Up here, you’ll have the chance to get closer to the world’s longest and largest coral reef complex that just about anyone, all while taking advantage of the luxurious resort’s amenities, excursions, and relaxed atmosphere. Snorkel in search of clownfish, explore by motorized dinghy, take guided nature walks, and more in this impossibly serene location where nature and comfort combine.

Back on the mainland, your final stop is Mossman, a small town just north of Port Douglas that’s home to Silky Oaks Lodge, one of Australia’s finest luxury resorts. Up here, you’ll have the rare opportunity to explore a private track through Cape Tribulation National Park where, far from the crowds, you’ll slip into the ancient rainforest for incredible view of the Great Dividing Range en route to a traditional Australian barbecue lunch within the park itself before tracking crocodiles along the shore of the Daintree River. The magical journey concludes with a day to yourself at Silky Oaks, where you can kayak, snorkel, and mountain-bike to your heart’s content or merely unwind amid the resort’s relaxing surroundings before bidding farewell to Australia with a headful of cherished memories.

Kensington Tours creates private trips from the world’s finest ingredients. Tailor-made with care by your personal Destination Expert, your personalized trip is always a one-of-a-kind experience made just for you. Expert local guidance and 24/7 service come standard. « Show Less
