Why You Should Holiday in Australia This Year

11 February, 2020

We have all observed or experienced the heartache that the bushfire season has brought to many of our local communities this year, including popular holiday destinations. While some of our favourite areas have been ravaged by bushfires, much of the country is still welcoming visitors with open arms. We want to support our Australian Tourism Operators across the country by encouraging you to holiday in Australia this year.

This is how you can get onboard with us.

Take a Guided Tour

We work with Australia’s leading tour operators, who deliver a range of quality itineraries and experiences for their guests. When you take a guided tour in Australia, you support our local communities and tour operators.

Your trip is led by local experts and you will enjoy immersive experiences as you visit those iconic highlights and engage with local heroes from all walks of Australian life. You‘ll get access to exclusive experiences as you are welcomed into communities across the country.

With all the logistics are taken care of, you just need to get onboard, relax and take in the scenery. Aside from the distances we travel across this great land, a guided tour is a safe and secure way to travel through regions that have been impacted by the bushfires.

Tick Off A Bucket List Destination

Australia is filled with Bucket List destinations that every Australian (and world traveller) craves to tick off ‘one day’. There is no time like the present to re-visit your list and start planning a holiday to those uniquely Australian icons, whether they are just down the road or across the continent.

From the Great Ocean Road to the Kangaroo Island, Tasmania to Queensland, Uluru and the Northern Territory to Western Australia and the Kimberley, you will find a guided tour, small group adventure or cruise that takes you to that bucket list destination you have been waiting (too long) to see.

Buy Local Souvenirs

When you travel across Australia on a guided tour your itinerary will take you to meet local artists and artisans, farmers and winemakers, our world class restaurants and local café owners everywhere. You will be helping every community rebuild when you buy locally made souvenirs, authentic indigenous artwork and stock up with local wines and cheeses along the road.

You might not be able to literally take your empty esky on a multi-day tour but you can savour locally made produce and order your cases of wine and send them home. In saying that, you can take your #emptyesky on a day trip or short break Bushfire Recovery Trip with AAT Kings or a food and wine journey with Inspiring Journeys.

From affordable to premium and luxury; short trips or iconic journeys, let us help you find a guided tour to help you tick off a much dreamed of Australian holiday, while you also support the recovery of our local communities. #holidayherethisyear
