The road less travelled is calling

Discover the hidden secrets of Australia, and do it together

Close your eyes and picture your dream journey in Australia with your partner. Are you having a close encounter with a koala? Camping in a ‘swag’ under the stars? Swimming with dolphins? Hiking through national parks with red rocks as far as the eye can see? Savouring traditional Aussie barbecue? Walking hand in hand through Sydney past the famous opera house? Doing anything your heart desires? The possibilities are limitless.

Australia, a trip out of the ordinary

Your well-organised holiday to Australia should represent who you are as a couple - and that can't be found in a guidebook. Stay in small-scale accommodations that offer the perfect blend of solitude to connect with one another, and the chance to have authentic local experiences. Short drives and mapped-out routes make sure you hit all your bucket-list items while travelling at a relaxed pace. Surrounding nature provides the perfect backdrop to learn new things about the world, your partner, and yourself in turn. Let’s put your dreams on paper.

When is the best travel time?

How long do we need in Australia?

Australia is one of the biggest countries in the world. You could spend months travelling the ever-changing landscape and not see the same place twice. For your holiday, the question becomes, "How long do we have together?". The more time you have, the more great things you can see at a relaxed pace. No need to rush from highlight to highlight.

To truly experience the essence of Australia, we recommend travelling at a relaxed pace for a minimum of three weeks. Or, if you have slightly less time, you can visit a few places in-depth and come back again one day.

What can we see and do?

With the diversity of Australia, you can see and do just about anything your heart desires - from the mysterious and remote Outback to the tropical Top End. Explore remote islands, vineyards, vibrant cities, white-pearled beaches, and beyond. Snorkel the sparkling Ningaloo Reef, through coral gardens home to turtles, clown fish, and the occasional baby reef shark. Take a helicopter ride over rugged outback regions forbidden from the ground.

Your options are endless, with environmentally friendly private or small-group local activities, ranging from easy-going to adventurous. Let us know your interests and discover what is best for you. We can schedule all your activities and take care of every detail, so you just have to show up and have fun.

How do we travel around?

From coastal roads, to panoramic rainforest passes, and awe-inspiring desert landscapes, Australia is best explored by car. Australians drive on the left side of the road - the same as you. The roads are safe and the views from your car are often magnificent.

Driving yourself means you're able to reach places that group trips and public transport cannot. You can go at your own pace and stop when necessary. With only a couple of hours between each location, you'll have more time to relax and explore, which is what you should be doing on your holiday.
