Home to an ever-evolving menu that merges East and West and world-beating wines, Australia has a taste for every palate, no matter how bold or refined. Discover the pleasures of the plate for yourself on this engaging journey through three of the country’s best-loved cities, each with their own unique take on local cuisine. Fresh seafood, great wine, and ingenious fusion dishes served against one of the world’s prettiest backdrops? We’re betting you’ll want to come back for seconds.

The journey begins in Melbourne, a cosmopolitan city that’s become Australia’s culinary and viticultural trend-setter. Here, you’ll stroll the streets in a small group and discover a selection of the city’s finest restaurants and wine bars in the company of an expert. Later, wander Melbourne’s network of laneways and arcades in search of all sorts of unexpected delights from indie designer boutiques to a great cup of coffee, then learn how to make hearty Australian food on a private visit to a 27-acre farm on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula before tucking into your hosts’ fare at lunch and sampling the wares of a nearby winemaker. Next stop: Adelaide, the capital of South Australia that feels more like a charming country town. Here, you’ll take a private tour of the meticulously planned city’s heritage and highlights (including stops at the Central Market, the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, and the JamFactory, a ceramic-arts center), sample artisanal cheeses and wines in the McLaren Vale, and spend a full day tasting the flavorful wines of the Barossa Valley on a private winery tour. The adventure concludes in sophisticated Sydney, first with a shared tour of its landmark Opera House (and a delicious tasting plate of local delicacies at its al fresco restaurant), a harbor cruise and extended lunch at Balmoral Beach’s classy Public Dining Room, and finally a private hands-on cooking experience in a local home, complete with prawns, local wines, and sumptuous Down Under delicacies. ...

  • Arthur P — September 08, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    It was all we hoped for and more, fantastic experience.

  • Kathleen H — September 08, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Our Kensington destination expert, Kate Perrier, did an extraordinary job of putting together a custom itinerary for my family. My family and I travelled nearly 11,000 miles to get to Australia and got to see everything we were most interested in thanks to Kate's expert planning!

  • Michael P — August 22, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Everything went like clockwork! Our family absolutely loved our trip which was made possible by the Kensington travel team.

  • Pam Gerus — May 23, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    We've never done tours before and planning for Australia seemed overwhelming until I looked at tour options. Kensington was highly rated. I really liked the basics of the tour we picked and Jessica customized it and changed things around to better fit what we were interested in and the timing we preferred. I liked the multiple, smaller tours as opposed to being with the same group for a week. The tours selected were with great companies, small groups, very informative and fun. Also, I was pretty scrambled after the long flight. Having Lyn Redfern meet us at the airport, talk us through the plans, answer our questions, get us situated at the hotel was really comforting and welcoming. The selected hotels were great. Overall a good experience and I'd definitely consider having Kensington set up future trips.

  • Adeline R — February 07, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Right from working with Jessica on setting our vacation plan to the execution was fantastic.

  • Ken S. — August 10, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    This was a great trip from start to finish. Everything planned was right on schedule without any problems. All the drivers and tour guides were very helpful and friendly. The accommodations were top notch. Thank you Kensington tours for a perfect vacation to Australia.

  • Philip S. — May 19, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    Superb trip, and as mentioned earlier, kudos to Louise Baer for her outstanding work and for patiently putting up with me and all my calls and questions.

  • Edith R. — May 19, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    We had a wonderful experience with Kensington Tours from the planning stages with your very helpful agent Aseem Mahajan, to the very friendly meet and greet services at each airport. The hotels fit our needs perfectly and the tours were fun and interesting with guides that were exuberant and loved showing us Australia. Thank You for a truly grand family experience.

  • Jim M. — May 18, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    Excellent tour.

  • Jennifer A. — May 12, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    Thank you Kensington Tours and Kevin Rowland for organizing this much needed trip for our family! I had read several positive reviews for Kensington Tours, but I didn't expect the level of service that we received. From beginning to end, the entire process was seamless. Each tour/excursion was led by a knowledgeable, personable and entertaining guide.
