Australia

A place where superlatives and expectations collide, where an ancient past is inseparable from the modern present with hyper-sophisticated cities rising glittering into the clear blue Antipodean sky.

They say there is no place on earth like Australia. From its epic landscapes in desert ochres and rainforest greens, framed by glistening oceans, to its unique, indigenous wildlife, and vibrant modern cities teeming with food and wine festivals, Australia’s contrasts are indeed like nothing else you’ve ever seen.

Abercrombie & Kent’s range of Australian journeys and award-winning luxury accommodation will guide you through the scale and diversity of the Land Down Under, with a wealth of experiences that feature Australia’s travel highlights and exclusive encounters reserved for pioneering travellers.

Whether you’re taking in the architectural splendour of the Sydney Opera House, discovering Australia’s ancient red heart at Uluru, swimming with Ningaloo’s Whale Sharks, sailing the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands, or dining under a canopy of southern stars on Kangaroo Island, A&K has mapped out the ultimate Australian experiences for discerning travellers.

Outback to Great Barrier Reef and beyond

Australia holds untold experiences and unforgettable sights for luxury travellers with a pioneering spirit. To bring you the best of Australia, Abercrombie & Kent offers a wealth of itineraries tailored to small groups, families, couples on honeymoon, and diving and wildlife enthusiasts.

With a welcome that is as warm as the weather, A&K’s expert guides follow meticulous itineraries for seamless Australian holidays. Australia is a ‘choose your own adventure’ sort of place, and A&K has all bases covered.

A&K’s journeys take in Australia’s highlights while steering clear of the tourist trail. This means taking the road less travelled, with exclusive visits to indigenous communities in Australia’s Top End, bespoke dining in the Barossa region’s award-winning wineries, special expeditions into Australia’s outback and Uluru, and unforgettable diving at Ningaloo Reef, the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands.

Unforgettable Australian luxury accommodation

A&K’s selective accommodation pairs laid-back Australian warmth and hospitality with pristine locations, ground breaking architecture, luxurious room appointments, inspired food and wine curations, and first class service.

In a country loved for its unique natural habitat, environmentally responsible practices shape Australia’s award-winning luxury resorts and hotels. Australia’s unspoilt wilderness plays a starring role in A&K’s accommodation, such as the remote beauty of the exclusive Homestead at El Questro with a million acres of dramatic terrain on its doorstep. Or the eco-beach luxury of the One&Only Hayman Island, in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Nature also inspires A&K’s luxury experiential accommodation in Australia. Enjoy flawless refinement aboard Australia’s majestic outback railroad icon, The Ghan. Or revel in a luxurious stay at Qualia, the world’s number one resort on arguably the world’s most beautiful island — Hamilton Island.
