Summer done differently: Southern State Escapes

Start planning a summer down south.

Travel in Australia might be all but at a standstill right now, but our community of intrepid travellers, like us, is always looking forward to the next adventure. This year is fast becoming one of hyper-local escapes, and while we wait for more far-flung adventures, exploring your own backyard brings with it, the reward of rediscovery.

While the north of the country is rightly lauded for its warm, welcoming conditions during the winter months, Australia's southern states offer their own alluring attractions over summer, and beyond, with long sunny days and blissfully warm temperatures. For those with a penchant for fine food and wine, a tasting tour of the Barossa's kaleidoscope of gastronomic gems is the perfect indulgent immersion. Or for lovers of landscapes, a discovery of Tasmania's numerous natural wonders and national parks. And who could forget Victoria's iconic Great Ocean Road, a celebrated road trip along the iconic coastline that continues to surprise and delight even the most seasoned of travellers.

Start planning your own discovery through our southern states with a selection of A&K's expertly crafted journeys below, and reach out to our expert Journey Designers, or your travel professional, to learn more or make a booking.
