There’s no thrill quite like beginning your journey into the desert region of Australia in search of Alice Springs, Ayers Rock and an education into Aboriginal culture. However, the experience drastically alters, providing a tropical oasis in the northern regions, a dry, Mediterranean-like climate in the west and a temperate environment in the south & east, providing the perfect environment for city life. Although travel around this incredibly-sized country can be daunting, our Personal Travel Experts can create unique itineraries with every last detail in place, so you can travel to Australia with complete peace of mind.

It was predicted that the Aboriginal history of Australia spanned across a period of around 50,000 years but recently within Western Australia, research has estimated a much more dated presence. With strong links to this fascinating culture and a renowned commercial art scene, many visit Australia for an education in Aboriginal traditions. Moving forward to the 1600’s, the Dutch were thought to be the first European nation to discover Australia, making multiple visits in the years to follow. However, Captain James Cook disembarked upon the coastlines of New South Wales in 1770, claiming the eastern coast under the name of the English Crown. Famously, the first English settlers were convicts, settling in the eastern region of what is now Sydney and as today’s population suggests, this began a trend of settlers relocating to Australia and laying down new roots.
