Depending on how much time you have, will determine how long you should visit. Australia is a country of contrast. Therefore, there are endless things to see and do. It is impossible to see everything at once.

Based on your wishes and desires, we can advise you on which regions to visit, how long and when. We would love to meet you and discuss the possibilities.

How do I travel around?

Australia features some of the best scenic drives in the world. A car gives you the flexibility to drive comfortably anywhere in the country, at a relaxed pace. Along the way, discover vibrant coastal towns. White-sand beaches. Untamed wilderness. Remote countryside. National parks. Small and charming country towns. And more.

Depending on your wishes, you may also need to take a domestic flight or two. Flying inside the country means, you will save time driving and therefore see more. We are happy to meet you at a time and place that suits you to discuss this further.
