Australia has endless beaches, barrier reefs and cosmopolitan cities. Deserts make up much of the interior where you could drive for days and not see a soul. When we’re not travelling we choose to call Australia home, so we have plenty of local haunts to share if you’re planning a trip ‘down under’.

overland track

By road, rail or air Australia can be traversed in many ways, just remember it’s a long way between everything! Tasmania on the other hand is a compact island full of adventure options. Including the Overland track hike.

pumphouse point

Pumphouse Point at Lake St Clair is a unique wilderness retreat which combines luxury with a genuine communal atmosphere set in the World Heritage Listed Lake St Clair National Park. A top pick for a special occasion!
