The World's Oldest Living Culture
Although a young nation, Australia
has a rich history with the world’s oldest living culture and prehistoric nature. Get a snapshot of the diverse experiences from meeting the Anangu people at Uluru
(Ayer’s Rock), browsing aboriginal art at galleries or meeting the artists in communities near Alice Springs
, learning about Dreamtime myths and stories from rock art in Kakadu National Park and discovering ancient rainforests through the eyes of the Kuku Yalanji near Cairns
and Port Douglas
Expeditions in the Kimberley
Be enthralled by the rugged gorges, epic waterways, and incandescent ocean of the Kimberley, in Australia's
north-west corner. One of the most spectacular ways to get these remote corners is a cruise from Darwin
to Broome. For those who like to stay on land, you can do 4WD drive tours along the Gibb River Road or stay at El Questro. Don’t miss a sunset camel ride in Broome.
A Tale of Two Coasts
You probably didn’t know you could explore Australia’s great reefs one day then the Outback the next. On the East Coast, Cairns
is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef
and Daintree Rainforest but you can also combine a visit to the Undara Volcanic National Park, the world’s largest lava system. Or you can continue along the Savannah Way to the Northern Territory. On the west coast is a secret reef that rivals the Great Barrier Reef
where luxury campsites or welcoming hotels are steps from the coral at Ningaloo Reef and the outback bush as well. It’s also the one spot where you can swim with humpback whales July to October and whale sharks April to June.
