Australia luxury travel is defined by a plethora of experiences that bring its culture and color to life. It is hard to define the island, country, and continent of Australia with one word. There are sparkling cities, quiet Outback expanses, and underwater worlds with striking colored corals. Indeed, "The Land Down Under" is a palette of incredible natural diversity.
The country is large, but its population is small with one of the lowest densities on the planet and most of it lives along the east coast. Cosmopolitan cities are busy and bold, just like the coffee that Melbourne residents like to sip at one of the many trendy cafes. To be sure, Melbourne is artsy with hip boutiques and delicious restaurants. The multicultural makeup of the country means that the food is a delectable fusion of varying cuisines. Splash along Bondi Beach in Sydney and watch a show at the Opera House. Adelaide is known for its live music. Unwind at a wine estate near Perth, while in Brisbane, the day stretches into night at one of the many rooftop bars. Hobart, too, is a funky city with museums, markets, and a moody past. Finally, the historical city of Port Arthur recalls the dark stories of this former penal colony.
Rusty red deserts rule in the Outback, a must-see Australia luxury travel destination. This arid center of the country spreads as far as the eye can see, with odd rock formations jutting up from the mysterious land. Towns are sparsely spread in between long, traffic-free roads. Here, mountains soar high and canyons dip deep.
Ancient and Indigenous Stories
Learn about the Indigenous people at one of the galleries in Darwin. Or, head out of the city to Kakadu National Park, a World Heritage Site, that will take you back 20,000 years. The ancient rock art provides a glimpse into the Aboriginal life.
Dive into the beautifully clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef, so large that it can be seen from space. Swim with majestic whale sharks in Ningaloo Reef on the opposite end of the country. On land, one can also find kangaroos, koalas, crocodiles and wombats on epic wildlife safaris and tracking expeditions. In Kakadu National Park alone, crocodiles numbers reach 10,000 strong. Hundreds of bird species fly through the blue skies, and seals, penguins, and sea lions inhabit the coasts -- especially on Kangaroo Island.
